Prednisone, here I come!

I wasn't wrong. I was right.
Tomorrow at 12:45p.m., I begin chugging the barium jazz, with raspberry highlights. My son tells me they "redid" the waiting room, so if I want, I can now chug it in private, while sitting in a cubicle. Good grief..
The actual CAT scan is at 2 pm.
Why all this fun?
My new Dr thinks I may have some weird, rare type of hernia. Spigelion. Probably named after some guy with the same name. Wow. To have a hernia named after you! A CAT scan is the way to diagnose it.

I don't know how we did it, but my brother has a PET scan tomorrow..Pray for my Mom ok?
Can you imagine?!!
He has some type of tissue on his carotid artery-- they are going to rule out more squamous cell carcinoma with his scan. We are all praying it is simply scar tissue from the radiation.

Here we go again, with the waiting stuff.
Tonight I was plunkin around on the piano. It is my new strategy to stay out of the kitchen. I like to eat when I'm nervous or scared...I couldn't find the hymnal, so I found On Eagle's Wings. Based on Psalm 91. Hannah played it last year..oh it so beautiful!!

"You who dwells in the shelter of the Lord, who abide in His shadow for life, say to the Lord "My refuge, My God in whom I trust!"

During small group tonight, we read from Psalm 106. The people of Isreal had made idols. It says,
"They exchanged their glory for the image of an ox that eats grass."
Then it states simply,"They forgot God their Saviour, who had done great things in Egypt."

I am not forgetting all You have done for me Lord! Oh please allow me to remember all Your benefits..
While I wait tomorrow, and the next few days for results, I will deliberately think on good things, lovely things, pure things and right things. I will choose to set my mind on YOU. When fear comes knockin at my door, I will do a front kick in it's face! Yep, I can kick that high!

I need to go to bed. I have to get up at 1am to take my first prednisone. Sleep will be difficult after that...
Sorry for the rambling...
Please pray..

He is faithful,

I pray that as you wake up in the next half hour or so, that you will be overwhelmed with a peace that will calm your soul and cover you with those Eagle's wings. May our Heavenly Father hug you close to Himself on Tuesday while your mind and heart flutter away and back again. May you be blessed with the strength to kick those doubts and lies from the enemy and rest in the Almighty's unfailing love. You are loved!

Praying for you dear one as you face tomorrow's yuckiness (for lack of a better word) . . . and then as you wait. . . also for Steve as he waits, and for your dear mom.

A Spigelion? Not too big for God!

A front kick in the face of fear. Perfect! I'll kick with you, but probably not as high-- but I'll kick extra hard to make up for it, okay?

May the Lord whisper His peace to your heart, and may He hold you closely in the days ahead. May He give rest to your body and to your mind. Father, I ask again that you would bring total healing to my sister Bonnie ~ in Jesus' mighty name, Amen!

Love you,


"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge, his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart" Psalm 91:4.

Loved your "Dancin' in the kitchen" post! Did you get my comment on your "Finally" post . . . about winning the tug of war? I promise I left one . . . I never did get yours about "blog envy" (Ame told me). I did get your comment tonight though, thanks!

Praying! T~

Yes, Tina, I did get your comment on Finally...I gave my children to Jesus at the altar a couple weeks ago. It was a powerful time. I just imagined Him holding them, loving them and taking care of them...I know that sounds cheesy, but it gave my momma's heart peace and comfort.
Thank you for reading and commenting on such a LONG blog entry..I had to get it out though!!
He is so very faithful,

Taking 'roids? You are going to be all pumped up!

This is what I get for not checking daily! I'm so very sorry I didn't know before but will start praying now! Know that you all are in the prayers of many.
Love always, Mom
