Laurie, are you looking for me?
I'm doing great! My sugar is dropping, almost down to normal. My acupuncturist has worked miracles with my back, that pain is gone, as well.
It's been a very busy time, tho. I'm involved in two Bible studies, in BSF we are studying Genesis, and then one of our pastors is doing a class studying the old testament thru maps. Just Tracking David and all of his campaigns has taken us three weeks to cover. It's VERY intense, takes 4-5 hours a week.
Also, we have a very dear friend from Texas who is having serious medical problems, we almost lost her. Her sugar dropped to 20! She was in critical condition for several days.
They are moving Johanna off the second floor to a private room. I don’t know how much longer she will remain in the hospital.
I don’t know when they will run the tests so she can eat. She is still very sick and while not needed all the care offered by the second floor, still has a long way to go. As most of you know not only does she have diabetes, but also pituitary and thyroid insufficiency. This means they have to primarily medicate against the pneumonia, but additionally monitor and support all the systems her body doesn’t.
They did say that after she leaves the hospital she will spend two to three weeks in a facility to help build up her strength.
So it is a long way to go, but Johanna has taken steps in the right direction.
Above is the latest email we have received about her.
Plus, another very dear friend from here at out new church has been hospitalized this week for severe depression. We have been traveling across town to see her several times.
And.... we had a serious announcement at church about a grievous sin that had been committed, calling for a resignation, and then asking the church to rec that person in love as a member. Loving the sinner while condemning the sin. It was heart wrenching, and so unexpected. It really took the wind out of our sails.
So..... it's been an extremely emotional roller coaster ride ride, one that is completely exhausting.
We are looking at trying to make the trip back to Austin, to see if we can lend any support to our friend and her husband there. But gas is so high, it will cost a fortune to go, and we don't know if we would actually be of any help. We don't want to be more of a burden than a help.
Bill will be qualifying for unemployment, so that is good, and will help to make the next couple of months easier, till he can get his SS restarted.
Watching this debate. It's a joke. Biden's elevator doesn't go all the way to the top. His marbles have rolled away.
