Taking The Day Off…
Instead, I spent the day enjoying the hospitality of Rogue Regional Medical Center and thus, am not prepared for today.
I’m fine, but still not up to snuff…T thinks a day on the river would help and he may be right.
There has been a scurrilous report circulating (written by an vulgar clod for his own purposes), that my condition is more dire than I have let on.
Here are the facts.
My heart is operating at about 65% pumping capacity and the aneurysm is growing very slowly.
I get tired easily , but I’m maintaining.
Eventually, surgery will solve those issues.
I have developed diverticulitis and kidney stones and those have resulted in three hospital visits in 4 months.
I do have chronic lung disease.
All that to say that while life can be challenging, it’s still life, I’m still here, and still intending to be here and be productive until God calls me home.
There is a church to pastor, another church to plant, much to learn, and much left to write.
Another stray cat just walked into the house and asked for a menu.
Sometimes the Lord has to use harsh means to teach us to number our days…I think I’ve finally got the hint.
We’ll be back tomorrow…and the day after that, Lord willing.
