It’s been a strange year so far hasn’t it? All of those resolutions we made never had much of a chance with the lock downs around the world. I live in Indiana and we have been on lock down for seven weeks, I believe. It feels like years though.
I had been sick with different things. I doctored with an ear infection but it turned out it wasn’t an ear infection. I actually got the Shingles. My doctor said it was the grown-up version of Chicken Pox. That stuff was so painful. Itching and burning in my ear and on my face. Scabs are still in place and it has been over a month.
I also had an MRI done for a trip I made to the ER one evening and a mass was found on my ovary. Go see a doctor right away, they said. Hey, we never get into a doctor right away. I had to go to my primary,for his opinion and then wait for another call for a Specialist and then wait for that appointment.
When that appointment came, I was put through every woman test I swear. I was sent to the hospital for special internal testing and external testings. I had labs for cancer done. I was sent to an ophthalmologist too. I guess this was to examine the entire interior of my eye to make sure the shingles hadn’t entered since the virus was attacking my face.
Following all of these tests I then got an infection in my lungs. I have been so too many antibiotics in my opinion but they did help. I finally cleared up. The scabs are beginning to leave and I received the good news that I did not have cancer.
Now that I am still in lock down I have turned to my favorite activity outdoors, bird watching. I have three different bird feeders and my cat, Riley and I are enjoying the view.
God has his reasons why the world is in chaos and my belief is that God has had enough of people ignoring him and his values. This is a wake-up call and I can already see by the way people are turning away from themselves and turning to helping others, that his way of life he wishes us to live is working.
I don’t work because of an illness but I can tell you I will be glad to just drive to the lake and sit and smell the lake and look at the scenery and take some more photos.
