Ooo, this is my 13300th post. Wow. That's a lot of posts. I must watch for my palindromic 13331th post!
I think Tiara's right... My understanding of the way Cori's signature is worded means she's had 11 babies rather than that she's been pregnant 11 times. I think she's been pregnant like 9 times... Awesome either way you look at it!
And Laura, please feel free to ask question about anything without worrying about feeling silly. We all lose track of things or mix up each other's stories or whatever, and everyone has been here for different amounts of time. Sorry you're still having extra pain.
I'm going to be passing through Tacoma on Thursday and wish I had time to see you, but already visiting one friend and we're making a day trip of it, so won't have much time or energy. Maybe next time.
Kara, I can't decide whether to tell you or not, but there's actually a TV show about Sleeping Beauty... well, not just her but all the Disney stories in sort of real life and with twists. Actually might be helpful for your research and creative ideas. It's called Once Upon a Time on ABC channel. The 2nd season is starting this week. A movie just came out this year that was Snow White, I think. And the Grimm TV show sort of draws from all Grimm's fairytales. But I think your book will still be unique and might be just the right timing since that kind of thing is apparently in style right now. I think it sounds fun! I want to read it.
Pup, all your talk about me is confusing. Is that time warp thing in my bedroom why I wake up feeling so exhausted? Maybe I'm running around in the past and future when I think I'm sleeping.
It's continued to be rather stressful for me. I mentioned something with my disability lawyer. I'm very displeased with her but yesterday found out that if I switch to a different one then I'd owe her all her legal fees and I can't afford that. If I stick with her then she only gets paid if I win and then gets a percentage of my back payment. So I'm stuck moving forward with someone I don't trust, and yet being forced to trust her with my financial state for the rest of my life, basically. Good thing I have a God to trust above her.
But at least the stress of scrambling to find another lawyer is gone, so today I just rested an ended up sleeping almost all day. Hope I can still sleep tonight.
This week will be busy, too. On Thursday Mom and I are driving three hours up almost to Seattle for me to get an MRI of my neck. They want to see how unstable my neck is while holding the weight of my skull, so I have to have an MRI while in a sitting position, and the nearest machine that can do that is in Renton, WA. It's really expensive so we don't want the additional costs of a hotel, so will be going up, getting the imaging, meeting a friend in Tacoma, and then coming back down all in one day. Then the next day I have a meeting at work so can't sleep all that day.
Please pray the trip will go well and safely and that it doesn't flare me too badly. I start work again the next week. I don't know what to ask for prayer for about the MRI. It would help my disability case a lot if it does show some serious problems (and I really need the help to cover medical insurance), and it would make me feel better about spending that much money on it (my current insurance won't cover the special machine). But if something serious is wrong then it could mean spinal surgery, which is scary for a lot of reasons. But then it could resolve a lot of my symptoms, too.
So I don't know whether to pray something is wrong or that nothing is wrong. I guess just pray that the test shows accurately and clearly whatever is going on. My insurance says those special machines aren't strong enough of a strength to have good images, but the laying down one won't show what the specialist is looking for.
