Streaks of Gray and a Hint of Purple

That is what the sky outside my office window looks like. Daylight savings time is excruciatingly inconvenient, but I do get to see the sun rise slowly.

Apparently, the gall bladder removal they did 10 years ago to fix my stomach problems then is what is causing them now. My fluids don't know where to go, so they are going back into my stomach. Luckily, I have a smart doctor who gave me pills to tell them where to go. And more to act as bouncers to the red-rope event that is my stomach lining. I will have to be on them for the rest of my life, but there will have to be no surgery, no invasive treatments. I feel much better already.

And the weekend after my last test was run, the last one that I had to be anesthetized for, I got all knocked up.

I am due November 7. (or maybe 8...stupid conflicting internets.)

I suppose God does know what he is doing after all.
