Well, I’ve been off of the PrevPak high powered antibiotics for my ulcerated lower stomach now for a week, and I am not feeling good at all. I had hoped once the meds were out of my system that my energy level would pick back up. But my stomach still feels heavy and sometimes there’s the same dull pain. I just don’t feel good. Nothing I can really describe … one of those you know it when you see it kind of things. I’ll keep on eating a little something with each dose of pills, and I’ll be calling the Gastro this next week for sure.
We had a very sad occasion at our church this week. Our Minister of Music passed away from kidney complications after his second heart transplant surgery. We did not go to the funeral, which was huge. He was well known all over the state from long time service in many churches and choir functions. I just was not up to the crowd. And I did not go to Sunday School today either. Our class is about half choir members, and I knew they would be so upset. I can’t handle my emotions at all any more, and it makes me jerk and shake when I get upset. So hubby came back and got me for church. It was a beautiful worship service, but as the Pastor said – Everyone was in a fragile state right now. I’ve never been in a church where a staff member died. It was almost like a continuation of the funeral service in a way, except more joyful. After all, we know he is well and happy now, although people close to him personally still grieve for his loss here on earth.
It does help to put my aches and pains into perspective, though. So I feel yucky. I can still get up and move around the house easily enough, and I can work on the computer as much as I like. I enjoy helping people on the Lost Toys Search Service, and it’s fun to get sales from our website and on eBay. I enjoy hearing from our children and grandchildren, and I have the most wonderful hubby any woman could ask for.
I am truly blessed by God, and I can’t thank HIM enough for all the blessings he has given me over my lifetime.
