It’s Always Something

We had fun on our quick trip to Jackson. Didn’t get to see all our friends but had fun with the few we did see.

Gorman’s shoulder has been bothering him for months, ever since the PICC line was removed. He hardly used that left arm for seven weeks for fear of disturbing the line so it kind of “froze up”. Plus he has ongoing trouble with his neck so after many months (his typical way of proceeding), he finally decided to see the doctor. As a result we are now going to physical therapy and he’s doing prescribed exercises three times a day. Yes, it’s always something.

To end this post on a positive note, we are leaving this afternoon to spend several nights in Highlands, NC. The forecast is sunny and chilly, our favorite kind of weather and I made sure we have a fireplace in our room. We’ve been told the leaves should be at their peak, which makes the trip even better.

After we return, Gorman will have an Avastin infusion and see our oncologist, Dr. Meshad, on Oct. 30 and the next MRI will be scheduled soon thereafter. But we have lots of fun ahead of us for now and we’re not going to think about the dreaded MRI. This morning in church we both were praying for God to strengthen our faith and forgive us when we become anxious and afraid.

  4. Isaiah 41:13: “For I am The Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you–Do not fear; I will help you”. Had to share this when It was sent to me right after I read your post!! Putting God in control is the easy part, but leaving Him there is harder! We think He might need our “help”!!
    Imagine you are in beautiful
    North Carolina!! Enjoy!! Take Care!
