Oh, my word! I haven't written here since August! Good grief!
Where has the time gone???
Caught up in the storms of life ...
Just trying to breathe in and breathe out ...
With Rick a lot on the truck from August till December - oh, I know, "Don't ask, don't tell" - we didn't ask, and we didn't tell. Saying it now - but ...
The holidays came. And they went.
We spent Thanksgiving at Joshua and Dessie's. Enjoyed good food and sweet love and hugs. :-)
Christmas ... well ... Christmas ...
The new year began with Rick not working as much - loads weren't available. And when loads were available - more day trips than anything else.
So, I spent more time at the house - going thru stuff, cleaning, trying to organize, and rest a little.
Rick's medication came up for the yearly checkup and renewal.
He also had a cough - not productive and basically no other symptoms ... just a cough.
So, on January 10, we went to the doctor.
She gave him the renewal on his blood pressure and diabetes medications.
And she prescrived him an antibiotic and an inhaler - also gave him a steriod shot ... for the coughing.
Because it was his yearly checkup - it was also time to draw blood and have labs done.
LIFE CHANGES SO QUICKLY!!!
I have a link at the top of this blog for all that has changed health wise for us ... "The Journey to Recovery".
Please - keep Rick in your prayers, and add him to any and all prayer chains (me, too).
This is totally new and unchartered territory for us.
God is good - all the time.
And He is Sovereign.
Even when it seems that things are out of control - they aren't out of HIS control.
Nothing catches God by surprise - which is why we often have "unanswered prayers" - just because He does know what is coming and how best to prepare us, keep us, and work us thru it all.
Trusting in HIM and in HIM alone.
Remember to show your love and appreciation for those in your life ...
Tomorrow may change everything ...
And tomorrow may never come.
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
