Just An Update
After a wonderful Christmas with our kids, we are home and enjoying puttering around; just nice quiet days but for us, quiet days are not boring; they are delightful. Every morning Gorman and I thank God that we get to be with each other another day. That tired old adage about cancer making one appreciate every single day is really true.
No doubt, some of you are wondering what ever happened about Gorman’s bulging disc. Well, the answer is not much. Apparently the symptoms can just come and go and he’s really not having any pain now; just some stiffness in his back now and then. He uses the heating pad every night and insists that he sees enough doctors as it is so we’re hoping it will stay in the background.
Gorman is cooking like crazy. In fact, he’s in the kitchen right now. Am I a blessed woman or what? I can barely remember how to turn on the stove.
The MRI is at our throats again. We will drive to UAB next Tuesday, Jan. 22 and his MRI is scheduled for Wednesday at 11:45. I’m giving the specific time in hopes that God will hear many prayers right about then. Gorman and I both try not to give in to the anxiety and fear but it’s a challenge. On our drive to Birmingham, I think I will get out pen and paper and we will actually list all our blessings, one by one – my remedy for fear and worry.
