Praying for your Grandpa, Becky. And for you and the rest of the family, too. Hope his pneumonia clears up quickly with the antibiotics and that whatever is behind it can be easily treated.

I've also made a life changing decision. Well okay maybe not.

I've decided I'm not going to take the drivers test anymore. I really believe I'm not meant to have my license. Plus, I feel like the test is impossible for some people to pass and I believe I am one of those people. I'm just not going to keep taking the test over and over and keep failing it. I'm tired of wasting peoples time and my mom's money.

Maybe I can look into some kind of job I can do at home so I can at least make money. I doubt that's possible either and if it is impossible then oh well.

I don't know what my life has in store but I do know one thing: I won't be a driver.

Adding my prayers for your grandpa, Kiddo... see why I don't trust doctors?

Sparrow Bird... Good thing it wasn't me they were helping, I would have gotten in trouble by asking if they were STILL having a hard time in grade school. :roll:

Adding...

They say persistence pays off, but then too, who are THEY. I still don't have a license, and don't mind it one bit. Then too.. I live in a small town and can walk anywhere. :wink:

Praying for your Pop Pop, Becky.

I don't drive either - there's other modes of transportation like the bus or blcycle, sled. Can't drive a car, how about a moped?

I live in an area where we don't have cabs or bus or mass transportation and i live to far away from places to walk or ride a bike, even a moped wouldn't work.

That does limit things a bit.

How far out from town are you, Becky?

Poppop isn't doing good. They've had to change his antibiotics 3 different times cause it isn't working. They did have to drain his left lung and they drained 2 liters of fluid from it.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad he's doing better.

How's he doing now with the fluid drained out, Becky? Maybe Tim assumed he'd be a little better without as much fluid? Praying for him and the rest of you.

I wonder what would happen if you took the test in a different area? Some states have easier tests. If you got your license in one state and then changed, I don't think you have to retake the test in the new state, right? I know our Washington one is suppose to be way harder than Oregon's.

Thanks for all the funnies in response to the potato story. :P

I have a prayer request, too... I'm seeing a new rheumatologist tomorrow. Then next Thursday I have my sleep study. I'm a little paranoied about the sleep study... I've been waiting for it for so many years and it's so expensive that a little part of me is afraid they won't find anything wrong. Or that I won't be able to sleep enough to get a good reading or have one of my very rare times when I do sleep... or whatever :roll: I'm not usually that pessimistic.

They just drained it today so its too soon to tell and also he is seeing a disease specialist cause something is causing the pneumonia. They tested him for TB.

I believe i can only take the test in the state i am living in

Hi Guys 'N Dolls, Boys "N Girls, Kiddos and Misfits :heehee ...whichever one works. I hope this glorious season is warming all of ewe's innards with happiness, cheer and good will.

Amykins...it's all gonna be just fine cutiekins...no matter what they do or don't find because God has ewe craddled in his loving arms and although all the little tidbits (test results) may not make sense or leave you wondering just what in the heck is going on with you...I want you to keep remembering that He is in total and complete control. Don't let our enemy burden you with stress and worry and keep reminding him that you belong to God and so does your life. That said....I know exactly how you're feeling and am sending you a cyber-hug. :hugs2

Beakers...am also praying for your grandpa to get well. :hugs2 As for the driving thingy...just wait for the 6 months or whatever it is to retake the tests. Just don't give up...so what if it takes you another stab at it...it'll be worth it when you do pass and I guarantee you that if you don't give up...you will pass....eventually anyway. :)....Later truly is better than never.

Seemakins...how is Pastor Dave doing? My heart is heavy when I think of him...so let us know...okay?

To all of ewes...

I don't have to wait that long to take it. I could take it again next weekend (if they had an appointment available which they usually don't). It takes a month and a half to 2 months to get the earliest appointment because they're so backed up and busy. So the earliest I could take it again is February but I'm just choosing not to do it anymore. I've taken it 3 times and I just think its not meant to be, that's all.

Me's thinks that you just need more driving time before you re-take the test. Did you catch that? And no you didn't make a typo :mrgreen: ....I read you loud and clear about not taking it anymore....BUT....me's not giving up on you getting your license...so me's decided to be deaf when you say it isn't meant to be...or is that blind, since we're reading? :heehee Anyway...I believe I speak for all of us who drive that none of us were comfortable driving until we like drove A LOT. It was super scary and unsettling and nerve-racking and I felt totally depleted, emotionally and physically after I got to where I was going....UNTIL one day...it didn't seem scary anymore. Anyway... :tongue that's for anticipating a smart remark and this is for just loving you and your adorableness. :hugs2
