First, I had a kidney biopsy. While I’m not in immediate danger, my kidneys are shutting down. There will be lots of lifestyle changes and eventual dialysis or kidney replacement.
The kidney problems have led to out-of-control blood pressure. Getting that under control has been a roller coaster of trying to get meds right.It’s been an experience.
I’ve pinched a nerve in my neck, making sleep rough and causing me to lose strength in my arms.
To top things off, my mother passed away after a long illness.
I guess you could say I had a bad week. I don’t agree!
I have a loving and very supportive wife of nearly 45 years.
I have my two sons and their wives, also loving and supportive.
I have my two granddaughters… one of life’s greatest blessings!
I have a loving and caring pastor and church family who are praying for me and being very supportive.
I am covered in prayer by dear friends from all corners of the world.
I work for a company and a group of people who could not be more supportive.
I’m rebuilding a relationship with a sister after years of distance.
And most important…
I have Jesus.
All things considered, on balance I had a good week in which some bad things happened.
