A.M. Thoughts

Happy Valentine's Day to all you lovers out there!

We finally figured out which two pills were causing me problems, and this is my first morning in a week without debilitating dizziness & nausea. This is a good thing. :)

A friend helped me take the 3rd-row seat from my Expedition, which had been in the garage, to the tow yard where what's left of the truck resides. I've been asked if it made me sad to see it go.

The answer, "Sure, a little bit." It was a great truck, comfortable, roomy, and provided sure transportation through all the winters here, plus for the drive to Alaska some ten years ago, while towing my wife's car on a dolly.

But we were ready to trade it away, and have a bit o' brass set aside for buying something else ... so sure it's sad, but we'd already decided to move on, so not too sad.

I don't really have anything else to write about this morning, except this: we're so grateful for the outpouring of prayers and support during the events of the last 10 days.

Thank you, all.

So glad the unpleasantness is over.
Now you take good care of yourself.
And I do understand that sentimental business. It's just so human.

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, Cathy. My doctor is stopping in my office on the way to hers, twice a day ... it seems I'm in very good hands. :)

Rev. Paul,

I'm happy to hear you're off the medication that was making you sick. Glad to see your doing much better. Poor expedition going to car heaven. I have to say, expeditions are great trucks.
Have you figured out what type of vehicle you'll be replacing the old truck with?

Rev. Paul said...

Sandy, we'll be looking for a mid-sized SUV, but are still open. Replacement was scheduled until later this year, so our savings aren't enough to shop for a few more months.

Thankful you all figured out the medicine problem and hope you will continue to feel better.

Take it easy...blessings!

Welshman said...

Paul, I have been meaning to leave you a message since your mishap, but got busy, and well, you know how that is.

My prayers have been with you throughout this, my friend. The Lord is with you through it all and will never leave nor forsake.

Keep hanging in and be patient. They have excellent results from the stent procedures for clogged arteries.

God bless!

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, CottonLady. It's okay with me to be NOT sick. :)

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, Anthony. He is my constant companion, and I've never been more glad about that!

Borepatch said...

And your old truck gave its life to save yours.

Rev. Paul said...

Very true, BP. I used that same description in the emergency room, as it became clear that I was uninjured.
