De pain

The past two days in the morning I have felt bad enough to warrant a trip to the ER yesterday morning. The problem as I see it with the ER is that even though they have access to all my medical records and it is fairly obviously that I just need pain meds they have to go through the routine of "figuring out" what is wrong. This morning I felt worse than I did on Friday morning but I didn't want to spend the time in the ER for pain meds that could take 15 minutes would instead take 3 or 4 hours.

I was able to get some pain medication down this morning after deciding not to go to the hospital and have been feeling better since then. They have said I shouldn't really go back to the ER unless I have a fever, in which case they will probably admit me. My white count is pretty low right now so I am sure that is some of what is causing the pain.

I haven't been sleeping through the night at this point yet, but I've been getting up which makes going back to sleep a few hours later much easier. The bad dreams have tapered off though and I am left with simply strange dreams vs scary ones. I could use prayer for the pain I am feeling now. It saps what very little energy I do have and lying down is about as much as I can do.

My thanks for all your prayers and support. I won't be at church tomorrow due to my low immune system, but I think Lisa will be, so if you see her say hi!

    When I wake in the middle of the night, I always stop to pray for you, Ben. May God pour His peace on you in a palpable way through de night as well as de day.
