Well, I know why the neurologist wanted to see me. The MRI showed something in my brain. They don't know what it is. Could be nothing. Could be a tumor. They want me to see a neurosurgeon. *shrug* Okay. Now is not the time to be worried. Nothing I can do about it....nothing but praise God. I got the MRI because I've been having a lot of headaches. More than is normal for me. The thing in my brain isn't causing the headaches but they found it because of the headaches. My God is an awesome God. I feel very blessed that God knows what He's doing.
Got home to a door to door vacuum sales person offering to vacuum my carpets. I thought, why not, someone else can vacuum today. I told them I had an appointment at 3:30. I finally got the sales person out the door at 3:40. Not the best way to stay calm.
The zombie cat's appointment didn't go that well. We've been noticing her having trouble jumping. Her back legs just don't seem to be on the same wave length as her front. The vet felt something wonky on her spine. They wanted to do X-rays. The estimate was over $500.
I came home and my nose started to bleed. I've never had a gushing nose bleed before. I ruined my favorite handkerchief. I took a picture but I won't gross you out.
Then the cat threw up in the cat carrier.
Sometimes my body and I don't communicate well. I think I'm perfectly calm. Couldn't be less worried about a thing. My brain and I are chill. My body however seems to be FREAKING OUT. It's stupid. It's been happening to me since I was young. It's part of the reason why my emotions pretty much trot across my face at will. I can't seem to stop my body from expressing itself. A guru I am not.
Thinking all this through a song pops into my head. A potential brain tumor didn't bother me....a pushy salesperson, a large vet bill and a long nose bleed...that's got me upset. Life is funny. Someone reminded me the other week that I wasn't a unique snowflake. My light and momentary troubles are not unique to me. Other people hurt, other people endure hardship and other people have concerns. This life, full of woe or joy, is so short in comparison to eternity. I'm going to endure...I may even do it patiently. I don't want to miss the opportunity for God to teach me, mold me and use me.
James 1:2-4 2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
Whatever is going on in your life, I hope this helps a little. Let me know if you want me to pray for you specifically.
