Want to learn about long marriages? Go here. It’s a great story.
I forgot to tell you all earlier that Beth got to see all her boyfriends when we went to Walmart. It just made Valentine’s Day worth it When we got there, we saw Manuel standing at the door. He said, “Happy Valentine’s Day,” in the sweetest voice he could muster. Then we saw Robert, the guy that use to sit outside our house and wait for her. He saw me first and waved. Then tonight when she went back to pick up her prescription, she saw Michael. He’s the one that told Manuel to leave his girl alone So her day is complete
Walmart needs more choices.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
2:40 p.m…..We went for the follow-up visit at the doctor this morning. The MRI showed things we had not counted on. So we have major prayer requests.
First, Bethany has Rheumatoid Arthritis. She has had pain in her joints for years, and apparently developed Juvenile RA as a child. But no doctor has ever tested her for that. I remember about 8 years ago, the doctor giving her some exercises to do because of the pain in her back. I wish we had known then that she had RA.
I know from experience that you can live with RA. I have it, my mom has it, as well as many other family members. But the MRI also showed that she has some kind of a mass growing in the bone in her ankle, and she has to have a biopsy on that. The doctor said he hesitates to call it a tumor yet, because it could be some kind of a cyst. But she has to have a surgical biopsy to find out.
She was upset that the doctor didn’t just say it was a torn tendon, he could fix it, and this would be over. She has to go for a full-body nuclear bone scan next week.
