Wed. I took Geoff, my son who lives with me, to the We Care Clinic. He has been having intense headaches for a couple of weeks. I had tried to get him to the ER but he would not go. So I enlisted his sister, the "new nurse", and she got him to the clinic. They ran a C-t scan and have referred to a neurologist - the nearest one in in Tri-Cities - about an hour from here. And, the soonest they could make an appointment is Jan - unless it is an emergency. So, now we wait.
Have started loosing a few pounds. Not exercising a lot - but am really watching what I eat. Am sorta doing the Weight Watchers point method with my daughter. Makes me more aware of some of the things I was eating too much of - like, cheese and ice cream in the evening. Now, I eat a little sweets right after dinner and no more later in the evening.
Have dropped off on my walking - was gradually increasing - and now am back to about where I was when I started. But, I am still wearing my pedometer every day - so need to get back to recording every day.
Am really tired this evening - sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all the issues with my children - just want to move away from all of them. But, I know that this is where I am supposed to be - where God has placed me. And, I know that God has a plan for my life here - so, I just take each day as it comes. And, respond to each situation as God places me in it.
And, yesterday a lady in the Church came in wanting to meet with one of the Pastors and I was the only one there at the time. She is having tests run for ALS - and was needing some comfort and prayers. So, I was able to spend some time with her. I felt so honored to be able to pray with and for her. Now, we wait for the results of her tests. She is a young mother with a husband and 2 sons at home.
Well, am about to doze off here at the computer - so had better sign off for this evening.
