A Mystery

So, I was plagued with a mysterious illness for the past 4 months, causing me continual belly pain. It was no fun and made it difficult to do most things beyond the essentials most days. I'm sorry if I was less of a friend or no fun to be around. It took loads of energy to just get through work and I often curled up on the couch all evening. On good days, I might get a little cooking, cleaning or Relief Society stuff done but that was all. I went through the whole gamut of medical tests, procedures and consults that 5 doctors came up with... but got no answers. Apparently, I was completely normal... just always in pain.

However, today I am happy to report that I am now 2 weeks free of pain!!! I  don't know what happened or how it decided to resolve itself but I am very thankful for each day. Was it a lesson of patience? Maybe a reminder to not take normal daily living for granted? A warning of things to come? A test of faith? Whatever it was, I hope I learned it well!

I wanted to thank all my family and friends who were so concerned, supportive, and offered up many a prayer in my behalf. They helped me endure and helped me heal, I am certain. Ben was a supporting sweetheart and very understanding through the seemingly endless process. I love you all!

Oh yay! I guess I can tell Lucy you are "all better" so she doesn't have to get so concerned every time we pray for your health. SO glad you finally feeling better.
