I am presently on vacation in NC. We are here for two weeks spending much needed time with our family and friends. However, I thought I would give a quick update on my health. I was admitted to the hospital on Thursday, April 24, with diverticulitis. I spent three nights there. Unplanned. But am grateful for the care I received.
Once I was released I was on some pretty strong antibiotics that caused me to be extremely fatigued and really unable to function very well. I slept. A lot. A whole lot. I didn't feel like myself at all and felt like I was about as useless as I could possibly be. Then we left on May 1 to come to NC. I should have waited. I wasn't ready for that much driving and it took it's toil on me over the next several days as I tried to recover.
However, I can now type this out and say I feel great. Today was a great day. I was finally able to make it through the day without fading out or sleeping for 2-3 extra hours (after sleeping at least 10 hours at night). I am grateful for the antibiotics that clearly helped in that time, but I am even more grateful for the fact that I am now finished with them!
So thank you to those who prayed. I feel great. I plan to enjoy this next week of vacation before returning. I honestly am already excited about getting back to CLBC and seeing what God will do next.
In the meantime, CLBC has been blessed with great preaching from my friend, David Gold. Make sure you check out his first two sermons here (one more coming!).
