I woke up this morning with a pain right below my rib cage smack in the middle. This is almost the exact same place that was hurting last year from the cancer. Yes of course that’s where my mind went too but none of the pain was making any sense. I’d felt a little something on Monday but I dismissed it as a muscle twinge and didn’t say anything to my nurse practitioner – and yes I’ve already been scolded. So, to put this ramble together. I ache, I ache when I sit down and get up, I ache when I take a deep breath and I ache more than I have previously – which is again why it just didn’t seem like cancer but hey when you’ve got cancer EVERYTHING winds up being about cancer. So I called Christina who said for me to come down and then had to wait for almost 2 hours because I was a walk-in and they were busy. Once I finally got to see Christina the first thing I got was the stern scowl, the second thing was her telling me not to worry about this being the cancer – that Dr. Pishvaian say’s there’s no way the cancer could come back this fast and that it most certainly is something else. I’ve got a CT Scan already scheduled for next Tuesday and am going back down Wednesday for the results so Dr. Pishvaian’s orders were pain prevention until we know what we’re dealing with.  What it very well may be is a hiatal hernia, because life just hasn’t been interesting enough lately.

I think this is when I’m supposed to start laughing maniacally and then fall apart crying – but that would hurt.

My request friends is that you’d pray for my loving wife Robin. This month has not been kind to her on a number of fronts, add to that my being laid off last week and then this… well as you can imagine she’s close to a melt down. Please pray that her soul would find rest in the peace that only the Spirit of God can provide.

    It sounds like hernia — your dr. is on top of things always.
