My back is out.
Here's how it happened.
Fast forward to last Saturday. I am wearing my clogs, carrying a big pot of chili to a church supper. It's a little slippery out. I under pronate, and I twist my ankle.
By Sunday morning my ankle really hurts. Tuesday. My back starts to feel funny. I've been favoring my right ankle, so my back ends up going badly out of alignment.
I'm toughing it out. Yesterday I tried to lie down on the couch in my office, but I realized I needed a different book (I'm trying to prepare for my sermon). I tried to get up, and then I went into such a spasm I thought, Oh my Baby Jesus, lying in his Graco playpen and chewing his little divine/human toes, do I need to call an ambulance???
I managed to get up. And home. Where I lay on the couch until Beloved brought me dinner. I groused and complained and generally made a nuisance of myself until she said, GO TO THE DOCTOR. So. Today I will do that.

I had a small disappointment in that a meeting with a DDO was not going to happen as early as anticipated. The delay in seeing a DDO, effected me more than I had thought and I had a few hours of self doubt and human weakness, wondering whether it was just me, and was I really upto the role and this was perhaps a subtle way of letting me down gently. However, after some reflection (and chats and communications with others) I saw that I was really over reacting and had forgotton the key thing - where is God in this, and what is his will? I forgot momentarily I suppose that he knows what he wishes me to do, but will only let me know when he feels I am ready. I can feel as ready as I like, but until He is ready, it is for nothing.

I went to the eye doctor today. I have always been VERY nearsighted. Like I cannot get up and go to the bathroom without my glasses. And then when I was in my 40s I couldn't see up close either. That seemed really unfair to me. I took having to get bifocals very hard.
It seemed like both the nearsightedness and the up close problems had gotten a LOT worse in the last few months. So I'm expecting a new prescription and everything will be fine. Instead the doc says about the near sightedness "I'm afraid we can't improve that anymore." WHAT? And the up close was only a tiny improvement. "Oh" she says cheerfully, "You have some cateracts in both your eyes. That's normal with aging. It will cloud your vision a bit. We don't have to do anything about it yet."
Yes I know I have to put it all in perspective. I can still see. I can drive. And I am grateful that when the time comes, I will be able to have surgury to remove the cateracts. It's just that my arthritis is coming back in my knee and it's not only painful to walk, it's painful to skate which really is worse. And I was so sure they could get my eyesight back to normal. What I fear I am seeing clearly is my future and I don't like it.
Father Kenny is having a simply awful time with the move to his new rectory. It's a nightmare.
Please forgive me for taking so long to give you an update but I wanted to wait until things were fairly definite. There were some leaks in the pipes. But unless there are more leaks underground we don't know about my husband was able to fix them all. Thank God, and thank you so much for all of your prayers and good wishes.
