Last night I blogged about how I was nervous about going to my doctor appointment today. So after much prayer and a pretty sleepless night last night, I headed to Richmond for my appointment this morning. The good news is that I don’t have any major problems, especially anything that could lead to cancer. The bad news is the doctor couldn’t say definitively what exactly was wrong. He thinks all my symptoms show I have something that I can’t pronounce that is often set off by major IBS which I do have. So basically I have to radically change my diet, take meds, and try to eliminate a lot of stress from my life. Most depressing of all is I pretty much have to give up caffeine as much as possible, thus killing my enjoyment of soda and new found love of coffee.
I know many of you were praying for me today and I greatly appreciate it. It means a lot to know I have so many prayer warriors out there praying for me! Please continue to pray that treatment of what the doctor thinks is the problem will work and that I will have relief from a pretty painful experience. Thanks so much!
