After much prayer and leading from the Lord, it's time that I go back to the States for more medical care. I've enjoyed my parents visit, but it was clear to us that I am not getting any better. Each day seems a little worse and the pain is increasing and spreading. The hardest times are when the fatigue sets in and I sleep and sleep. Unfortunately, this happened some this week with my parents visiting. They were so understanding and played and entertained the kiddos. They were so patient with me as I wasn't always the sweetest. (maybe even a tad bit grumpy) (did I really just admit to that? :o) They are such wonderful grandparents and parents.
My Rheumatologist here and my doctor in Florida have done all that they can and have recommended that I head back to the states to be seen by different doctors. Next week I will have an appointment at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, Florida with an Internal Medicine Doctor. Within a day or two after that I will have tests done and possibly see other specialists.
Please pray with us that the problem will be found. I'm ready to be on the road to recovery! Through everything God is so faithful and patient. He takes good care of me and is good all the time!
