We are just completing a week that was filled with doctor's appointments dealing with health issues my husband has been facing. Four out of the five weekdays we were at medical facilities somewhere in the Portland area. While nothing has changed as far as how Doug manages day-to-day, we did get a diagnosis. As I suspected for a long time, there is a reason he feels so bad so much of the time and why his overall condition has seemed to deteriorate. It is not - as his family has accused, that I am poisoning him. I am so thankful for a doctor who took my husband's medical records home and researched at night until he identified the syndrome that is causing this horrible situation in Doug's life.

I am reminded of the years when I first adopted Kurtis and his medical needs were so great. Four days a week for years I took him to doctor's appointments or therapy. On Fridays, I worked as a volunteer in his sister's classroom so she would not feel left out because of her brother's demands on my time. I think perhaps I am just revisiting my past while we get all of Doug's medical needs taken care of.

We did squeeze time in this week to buy a new-to-us car. God chose this car shopping outing to validate some of the choices I have made that brought me to the place I am in life right now. When things seem to be dragging me down, I begin second guessing the decisions I have made - thinking if I had done this instead of that. Of course, things would be better - right? I know I have not always made the right choices, but I try not to rectify them by making a second mistake. Running away from a problem is not always the best way to solve it. God has been clear in his communication to me that he expects me to be faithful to my commitments. So I am. The salesman at the car dealership showed me a document that just blew me away. I was absolutely speechless. Yes me - speechless! I was so moved, I was unable to sign the document for several minutes. The salesman said, "This is incredible." Doug said, "More than you know." I just cried. The saleman retrieved a roll of toilet paper from his desk so I could dry my eyes and blow my nose. The point is, parenting lasts a lifetime, marriage is not always easy, most jobs have unpleasant aspects. More than once I have wanted to walk away from my job, my children and my marriage. God has a plan. When he told me to be faithful God knew the wonderful things he had instore for me. I have been faithful. God has been faithful in return and has blessed me beyond my wildest imagination. 

Several years ago I was forced into bankruptcy to avoid garnishment of my wages by a hospital that would not take $25 dollar payments on an $800 bill. They had already received a huge insurance payment. This bill was to cover my son's suicide attempt. I was unable to make larger payments and pay for my son's drugs and his therapy which were out of the pocket expenses for me. His father refused to help with the payments. In the bankruptcy, I paid all of the other debts that I owed. I did not pay the hospital. The document the care saleman showed me was my credit score. I believed it would never be anything higher than mediocre. God is so good.

Hang in there!
