It has been 3 weeks now since I first got sick. Whew! And i am still coughing! Will it ever end i wonder??? I don't think the cough is as deep, nor as often. So, i guess it is getting better. Still hard to carry on a conversation for longer than a couple of sentences without a coughing fit, tho.
And it has been a couple of weeks since Rick got this crud. He's still pretty miserable with it. Still taking antibiotics and living on Mucinex. Thankfully, his doctor's appointment is this coming Wednesday - that will make me feel better, at least. Let Dr. Greenwell decide how he is. Sigh.
We have another truck now. Sigh. Rick traded the Suburban for this one - a 2002 Dodge 2500. He now has this one up for sale. (We sure don't need another one! We have one paid off, a classic, and another one that we are having to make payments on.)
IF this one will sell this week, we are going to take a vacation. Our FIRST vacation in 34 years! We will be going to Oregon. Rick is wanting to go fishing with his best friend, Craig. Then, we will come down the Coastal Highway 101 into the Redwood Forest of Northern California.
I know that some will question us doing this. But ... Rick is dealing with a chronic disease. Kidney Disease with Renal Failure. It is a disease that he can live with - but how well? how long? Only heaven knows.
We have read and heard the statistics. And by best accounts we are looking at 10-14 years of peritoneal dialysis. He is still trying to judge the thought of transplant. (Not even sure he would be a candidate for a transplant.)
I pray every day that God will do a miracle in Rick's body and heal him. Heal his kidneys to the point that they are filtering the toxins out of his body - where he doesn't have to do the dialysis. I pray that God will restore him to walk in health on this earth.
But then ... no one is promised a tomorrow. No one is promised good health all their days. We trust in the Lord ... Jeremiah 29:11 And "Even If" the healing does not come - God is still God, and God is still good!!!!!
I am working on a couple of websites besides this one.
One is my recipe collection, Kamelotrose's Kitchen - @ Blogspot - -I have had many ask about recipes, and I just haven't been able to find a place to share - so decided I would try my hand at creating a simple recipe blog.
The other one is a gathering place for my morning thoughts with the Lord - Kamelotrose's Mornings --I have been asked several times to write a book ... well, if there is a book in my near future, i'm thinking it will be along this???
Trying to put all this together in an orderly way, something that makes sense to me (and hopefully to any who read it). Pray for me - God says in James that if any of us lacks wisdom, let him ask of God ... and that God will give the wisdom. O Lord! I need wisdom!!!!! And i am asking! )
I also have over 10,000 pictures in my computer to go thru! Organize! Decide what to do with them! Lord, don't let my computer crash out on me!
The park has been quiet this weekend ... we didn't need to work today. That felt weird! LOL
We have a couple of days to help out this week before we go to Sulphur Springs.
The park is having a "Jam" session in September. Not sure who all is going to be here - but I know that there are special RV rates, and if you just want to come and go, it will be $5 per day. Coffee Creek - y'all come!!!!!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
