Well, kiddies…

I’ve been in the ER all afternoon because when I called my doc today to tell him that my headaches were worse again and that my vision was a little blurry at times, he wanted me to get a CT scan as soon as possible to rule out the possibility of another stroke. The good news is that I still have a brain, there are no clots in it, and my blood work is fine. So they gave me a shot to help stop the headache, a prescription for another med to take if needed, and sent me home. I’m so relieved that I wasn’t having another stroke even though we still don’t know what’s causing the increase in headaches. But I will talk to my primary-care doc about that on Monday and will call my eye doc about moving up my next checkup appointment for my eyes. Now it seems that, since I got very little sleep last night, little Natalie Scarberry’s tanks are sputtering, her flaps are down, and she’s headed in for a soft landing, hopefully, on the bed. I pray that all of you are well

Nourish beginnings,
let us nourish beginnings.
Not all things are blest,
but the seeds of all things are blest.
The blessing is in the seed.

Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. ~John 12:24  ✝
