I called the urologist’s office this morning and set an appointment for 1:00 next Monday. That’s all the news I have for now, but I’ll keep you posted!
Thank you to so many of you who wrote and said you are praying for me. I wanted to give a quick update to those who are reading but didn’t write. Last night, twenty-four hours after it started, the bleeding stopped.

This morning, he noticed that it was stiff.Continue reading

Fifteen years ago, toward the end of my first marriage, I saw an ad posted on the bulletin board at work for a kitten that needed a good home. The kitten’s name was Dabé. He didn’t look like a Dabé to me. He had huge ears for his little body and reminded me of Dobby the house-elf in the Harry Potter stories, so I named him Dobby.Continue reading
A man in my church has a grandchild named Ashton who came for a two-week visit starting during the 4th of July weekend. Gene and his wife work all week and he didn’t want Ashton to be home alone, so he asked if Ashton could come to my place while he works. I readily agreed!Continue reading
I had Merih come over this morning (and he was wearing a face mask because I had told him he needs to be cautious) and I called the COVID-19 hotline to try to make an appointment for him to be tested.Continue reading
