Still In Bed

I just can't seem to get my feet back under me.

Monday was a surprisingly good day overall, but that's been the only day since coming home from Stanford that I've been out of bed for the majority of the day. Simply going to my doctor for an easy appointment (and Mom drove) on Monday was apparently enough to tilt the scales and do me in for the rest of the week. I don't know if this is due to Sunday's IG (though usually I have a bad Monday and gradually gain ground through the week) or still fallout from the trip to Stanford or just a new (and might I add, rather unwelcome) relapse???

We are getting life accomplished, have had a remarkably good school week from bed, but I just can't be on my feet for more than a few minutes at a time before I'm shaking and totally drained. I've got to get out on Saturday and get some blood work done, but at the moment I'm doubtful about church or next week's writer's group, and am wondering how things will go when we start up weekly homeschool co-op meetings on Thursday afternoons, starting in just another week.

Today I'm focusing on just two verses:

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:34 (NIV)

"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:19 {NIV}

My heart was happy to read you had a good school week. We did several months of school in bed when I was on bed rest. Go teacher/mom!! I know that has been a burden on your heart.

I know you feel worn out, but you are such a strong woman to have endured what you did in your past and also working through this illness. From one woman who has also dealt with years of infertility to another, you are in my prayers.

Have you ever been tested for gluten sensitivity? I am sure you have been and that probably sounds like a dumb response to all your unfortunate symptoms and pain. The only reason I felt the need to say is because I used to have many of your same symptoms and I discovered after 7 years of chronic debilitating illness that I was allergic to wheat. I did not have Celiac Disease, which I had been checked for, but simply a wheat allergy. All my symptoms have resolved.
