An Update

It's another rainy day here. One that makes me want to curl up with a book or nap, but I will be going to work soon. Say a prayer for me if you would. I am still battling the bug that Megan, Tim, and the kids have had. I haven't had the horrible congestion or body aches that they've had...just a general run-down feeling of blah. This is also the first time back at work since last Wednesday when I had such awful leg pain I went to see my doctor on Thursday.

I've followed my doctor's orders and stayed mostly off my feet, taken the prescription strength Naproxen he prescribed...and yes, the acute pain of Wednesday has gone, but tonight is the test. I feel pretty sure that it will return as soon as I'm on my feet and running once more.

I've decided to work tonight and see what happens. If the pain returns I've decided I will have to let the job go. Tim supports that decision. Megan still hopes that they will work with me if it comes to that and find something for me to do. Possibly, a job doing laundry as they don't have anyone...aids and housekeeping try to keep up with it...and they have been saying they need someone to do just that. I don't know if I would like that job. It is so hot and miserable in the laundry rooms and depending on the job description they came up with, I could be on my feet and running just as much to deliver laundry.

I spent some of yesterday browsing job ads online. I saw a couple that interested me and I applied for one. The local library system is looking for a part-time desk clerk. I would like that. A local hotel is looking for front desk help and a car dealership is looking for a greeter part-time. I guess we'll see what plays out.

Anyway, just pray for me tonight that if/when the pain starts I can manage it through my shift. 


  1. Praying for you now, that either the pain will totally be gone and you will be able continue with this job, or, that you will know for certain that you can't continue and will find another job that is better for you physically. I know you are wonderful with these patients and they will miss your skills there if you can't continue, but your health is most important right now. So praying for God to give you peace one way or the other.

  2. I will indeed pray for you, my friend. Hugs from rainy up north!

  3. Hi Stacy. Prayers that the pain will stay away. Foot pain is rough. Yes, I know about foot pain. If you cannot stay at this current job, I hope you find something else you like. Let us know how it goes. See you again soon.

  4. Prayers lifted! Keep us posted. Sending love & hugs with the prayers!

  Just for today... Outside my window... day has given way to night. It was an overcast day and the skies remain cloudy so no moon or stars ...
