Well, my dear Pilgrim Pals, I went to see the specialist in Toronto yesterday and came away more puzzled than ever. After a long consultation he felt that what I've had three times in the last two years is NOT cellulitis but he's not sure what it is.
They took so many vials of blood from me that I thought I had run out of the liquid of life. The nurse kept pumping my right arm with her hands to force out enough blood to fill 1/4 of the final vial.
I had a chest x-ray and an ultrasound as well. Dr. Rose will call me to book an appointment in his office when he has received all the test results. The only thing I learned was that I have "multiple gall stones". I don't know what that means, whether surgery will be required or not, but we're puzzled by the cellulitis mystery.
Anyhow, thanks for your prayers.
Tomorrow morning we leave on Matthew's camping trip with his grade 7 class from Rhema Christian School. Should be an excellent wilderness adventure. Pray for me!
Be assured of my ongoing prayer support, dear friends!
Standing with you,
P. S. I'll be taking lots of pictures while we're away!
