pancreasSpiritual Coaching Vol 3 #63  Pancreatitis…

Listen to your body and believe it. Tuesday was a normal busy day in all ways until about 8:30PM when I crumpled over in pain. For no apparent reason I was struck down with excruciating pain. About 2:00AM on Wednesday I finally fell asleep after consuming several ibuprofens. In the morning the pain was less but…

My body was telling me this pain was not normal. Stubborn me – I did not listen to others advice and tried to tough it out. I finally went to the doctor on call and the diagnosis after blood tests and CAT scan was pancreatitis. The causes? They say alcohol abuse (which is not the same as spilling a drink), gall stones, or it is simply idiopathic (they don’t know why). With the Youth Mission Trip on the horizon I was concerned and asked what my chances of going were. The doctor said, “We’ll see.” Which meant – “He’ll see after taking another blood test today.” Today the levels were back to normal, the pain is almost gone, and I’m cleared to go if I don’t do any strenuous activity.

So this explains why I have not been writing this week. It was hard enough to drag myself out of bed and try to function at even a minimum level of activity. I’ll keep you posted on what happens but I’m appreciating the faithfulness of God during a very challenging week,  the care of doctors, and the adjustments by my family and colleagues. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers for the Mission ahead.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel…” Ephesians 6

Be Well…
