How much are we willing to pay for peace of mind? I found out today how much I would pay. At least four hours in the emergency department and I don’t know how much the bill will be, but frankly I’m not concerned about that part. As long as my son is ok that is all that matters.
My son had chest pain and shortness of breath this morning. We called our doctor and he said to go to the emergency room. We spent four hours in the ER getting tests done. Thank goodness they were all negative. I guess its just allergies.
However, I’m really feeling much better knowing there is not a serious heart or lung issue before my son goes back to college at the end of the week.
It got me thinking about how much we are willing to pay for peace of mind. I didn’t want to wait and make appointments and wait for months to find out if he had a serious issue. I can relax tonight knowing all is well.
I’m feeling a little old today, because every day this week I have some medical appointment. Monday and Wednesday I have physical therapy and today we were in the ER. Thursday I’m getting my cyst removed from my head. Friday I have a post op shoulder appointment to hopefully get my return to work papers.
I now understand why people are tired just from running to all their appointments and trying to take care of themselves. Its actually more tiring than having a full time job where you know what to expect each day. Its a mental wearing of the mind.
I prayed this morning, please go before us today and give the doctors wisdom. I feel peace that he went before us.
My Pearl today is the joy of placing our lives in his hands and trusting Him to go before us in every situation. He lifts us up on wings like eagles. We will run and not be weary, we will walk and not faint. Thank you Lord for teaching me how to wait.
