Pain and No-pain
I awoke with a sharp pain in my right lower abdomen at 5 am.  Two previous times I had the same pain and they guessed it was a bladder infection (even though it didn't feel like it).  So, I assumed the same.  James carried me to the car. So, Jess ran me to the emergency room.  After the test came back negative for the bladder infection, they wanted to do Ultrasound/blood work.  I agreed even after my pain went from a 9.5 to a 1.  The doctor wanted to find out.  During the ultrasound, a 6mm abnormal cyst was found on my right ovary.  UGH.  Down to the female doctor, she decided to take the conservative approach and take drugs to reduce it.  But, it is unlikely.  Pray.  I hate needles and hospitals and anything medicine.  If it is not reduced surgery is the only other option.  

This week studying Paul's thorn in the flesh, I kept asking myself "What kind of trial or hardship am I enduring?"  Thanks God I will pray and find your joy in the midst of this thorn.
