Anxiously Awaiting

I'm trying not to read too much into the fact that I should have heard today about the tests which were run yesterday. In fact, I really should have heard yesterday. Both times that I have talked to the doctor's office, the nurse has said that the results aren't there yet - but that is doctor-speak for the doctor has my chart on his desk and just hasn't gotten around to calling me yet. My regular doctor, a female, is on vacation this week, and her fill-in is quite busy covering not only my doctor's patients but his own as well. So, I am sure he's very overworked right now, which is the most likely reason why he hasn't called yet. But, my mind is busy with anxiety - thinking the worst - that perhaps he hasn't called because the results are bad and he has to contact my regular doctor to see how she wants to handle it all, or he's trying to find a specialist to send me to. Then, I recall that usually doctors call the patients who have the bad results first, thus making those with relatively good or not-so-bad results have to wait for their news.

I hate waiting. I'm not very good at this at all. It reminds me of the time when I really was ill, and had to have major surgery - and how difficult and painful that experience was for me. All I can do is pray, and wait, and pray some more. Thanks for checking in.

Breathe, Val.

Worry is a waste of time. Okay, sure you know that already. It doesn't really help, does it?

(((hugs))) God will make a way when there seems to be no way. Comparing our problems to how big our God is will make any problem shrink back down to size. It will all be okay! God promises us so. He will never give us anything more than we can stand. Amen.

Waiting is never fun - especially when there is a lot at stake! My thoughts and my prayers are with you.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

Love and hugs!

Well, UKOK nailed it but I know that doesn't always help when its a medical issue you're waiting on.

But...knowing we're all out here praying for you - maybe that will help put you at ease?
