I continue to think about this subject. Unforgiveness is one of the major hindrances that can hinder your healing. Listen to what Jesus says in Mark 11:25-26. "And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and [let it drop](leave it, let it go), in order that your Father who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings." Happy New Year 2011, I still think this an important message! A quote by Author: Tami Hoag 2007... What purpose does it serve to hold that anger? What good does it do? Hatred is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die of it."

An Opinion... Isn't it amazing that almost everyone has an opinion to offer about the bible (as well as other subjects), and yet so few have studied it (or the subject)? R. C. Sproul, If only one would read before speaking, they would not look so foolish. Yet, I don't want to get in anyone's face... so I keep dropping hints. Does it help? I hope so...)

Third opinion...

Off to the doctor office... 

Gloria is driving, she feels my attention isn't what it should be.  Maybe she's right...   Priorities set this morning, prayers first for a good day.  Second, a cup of  coffee without sweetener and cream... ugh!  That will cut my consumption down quickly!

Arrived at the doctor's office ready for a report from John Hopkins.  Blood pressure was a little high again 178/101, think it was being anxious that caused that bump. The opinion of my last biopsy had not arrived, and my doctor said that he thinks my mass outside the kidney is Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  But... that is why we are waiting for the third opinion to know for sure what we are dealing with.

Picture from
 The biopsy on my kidney is set for Tuesday, 10/19.   During the procedure there will be uretero renoscopy, ureteral stent, cyctoscopy, renal pelvic wash. 

After my appointment with the doctor, went to the hospital for pre-registration.  While there, found that I was to do labs, EKG, chest x-ray, pre-op nurse consult, etc.  It's a good thing my sister and I decided to stop running errands and go to the hospital before it got too late.  Not getting to the hospital for the tests today could have messed up my biopsy date. 

After running errands, it was getting dark outside.  Both Gloria (sister) and I don't deal with night driving really well.  We do okay, just not our favorite.  Anyway, a little slower coming back tonight and Allen was anxiously waiting for us.  No, that's not correct, he was anxiously awaiting the arrival of his steak and cheese sandwich.  And we thought the calls to us on the road were of concern for us, not relief for his hunger pains.

No over the counter pain medications these past three weeks, and I am feeling aches and pains.  Not bad, just there and tired.  As a result, guess I won't be driving back to Tri Cities tomorrow for my grandson's football game.  I feel bad about that, and I will miss being there.
