I've returned from Montreal and I'm here at work (Christian Horizons) with such severe ear aches that I can't sleep. Carol tried to get an appointment with the ear, nose and throat specialist yesterday but can't get one 'til late October or early November. I came home on an earlier train because the pain and discomfort was so bad.
This afternoon at 2:45 I have my appointment in Toronto with Dr. Rose, the infectious disease specialist. Perhaps he can suggest something or refer me to someone who can bring relief.
Thanks for your prayers, dear ones! I will have to call and cancel my monthly speaking engagement this morning at one of the local seniors residences. I'll hate to miss this opportunity but I can't concentrate on anything due to the pain.
I'll be glad when daylight comes! "Joy comes in the morning!"
As I close I'm very much aware that many of our pals have greater maladies and health concerns than I do. I AM praying for you, dear ones, and for your loved ones who are battling such incredible medical concerns.
God is sovereign and He knows and cares about every situation.
Thanks again for your prayers!
The pained pilgrim
