A Day In The ER

Betsy had been experiencing a lower back pain for a couple of days, but yesterday morning it really intensified. She made an appointment to see her doctor, and after just a few minutes of being examined her doctor announced, “I need to send you to the ER. I think you might have a kidney stone.”

So I swooped in, picked up my bride, and off to the ER we went. After the tests there, the doctors believe that it is not a kidney stone but a severe muscle spasm.

I’m grateful for…

  • …the fact that ER trips for our family are few and far between.
  • …relatively easy access to medical care.
  • …the wisdom of doctors.
  • …the kindnesses of nurses.
  • …the genius of scientists who design medicines.
  • …health insurance.
  • …technology that allowed me to communicate with family during this time.
  • …friends who pitched in to help.

I’m not anxious to make another ER trip anytime soon, but it was a good time to look around and recognize how much I have to be grateful for every single day.

What are you grateful for today?

    The day off and quality time in Scripture, like-minded friends in Jackson to grow with and I’m grateful for distant (only in soil-space) family like you! Love to your bride.

    …a day off during the week to clean house before company comes…good health…yes, technology to communicate easily with family in different locations
