I'm afraid. Joan will be making an appointment with our internist Monday morning. Our hope and prayer is that whatever is happening with me is nothing at all. Reality is telling us that I may be facing some kind of surgery; perhaps minor, perhaps not.
My intention in creating this blog has been to be as honest as possible about the hurdles we face as a family of an exceptional child. I've given you the good and the bad. Things have been positive for the most part after creating the website. Ben has been healthy and has not had to experience a hospital visit since it's inception. That much we are thankful for.
Joan and I have aged into our mid-40s, a time when we are facing some significant changes in our own bodies. There is no need to review some of the things we've had to worry about Joan. All problems have been accounted for.
I will be going to our internist Monday morning. This will be a significant visit and that is all I can say at this point. I would appreciate some thoughts and prayers going my way for a change. And I must confess that I am afraid. Let us put it this way: we re already trying to figure out how we can survive without my income. NOW BEFORE YOU BEGIN A FUND AT THE BANK let me say that the hopeful part of us is praying I'll be out of commission for just a few months. And perhaps there's a good chance that the alarm was just that: an alarm.
Anyway, I'm afraid. I guess that is what this blog is for...telling the truth.
