If You Give a Mouse a Cookie...

***Warning***Medical Post****

Ever feel like you are a character in a book? This summer has been somewhat like a book to me. Let me explain:

If you have a heart attack the doctor will probably want to do a lot of tests.

If he does enough tests, chances are he will probably find something wrong.

If he finds something wrong he will want to do more tests.

If he does more tests, he might find something entirely new wrong.

If he finds something new wrong, he will want to do "a procedure".

If he does "a procedure", and finds something bad wrong, you might have a heart attack.

Well...maybe not that dramatic, but I will explain. during all of my heart tests they "incidentally" found a small nodule on my thyroid. Now, these are very common once someone turns that wonderful, "fall apart 50", so I am not really concerned, but today I went for a biopsy of my thyroid. Sticking a needle in your neck is not a pleasant way to spend an afternoon, but after
the initial "bee sting", it wasn't bad.

Although, leaving the office feeling like a baked potato is stuck in your throat wasn't much fun either. I won't know any results for a week, but like I said, I am just not too concerned. It's just that my summer, you know, my carefree, fun-loving summer, has turned into one giant doctor appointment. I guess I can't complain.

Honestly? After this week, I'm pretty much ready for Jesus to just say, "come on up, everybody". Watching loved ones age, go through medical challenges, and face uncertainty is so very, very hard on my heart. I'd rather we were all just in Heaven playing skipbo or something. Maybe I wouldn't be so teary all the time if we were already there. And to be extra honest, God seems awfully quiet lately, and I confess that I'm struggling to want to talk to Him. With all the strokes, heart issues, cancer, and other things happening in our families, I was doing pretty good trusting Him.....until this week. It's a good thing my salvation doesn't depend upon how well I hang onto God, but upon how well He hangs onto me. 'Cause really, I don't hang on so well.
