MOUNDS, AND MOUNDS, AND MOUNDS OF PAPERWORK!
I hate it all. I do. I really do.
I can’t stand it. It’s the necessary evil in the world but I hate it.
I just spent the last two-ish hours doing paperwork straight through. On the plus side, I did listen to all my back-logged Adventures in Odyssey while doing it all…
So, now, I’m taking a mental health break to catch all 2 of you up on what’s going on in my world.
I went to the doctors a couple of days ago. A few weeks ago, I went to an orthopedic surgeon to take a look at my wrists. With all the typing I’m doing now (and blogging about it is probably not helping it), I think it’s aggravated my carpel tunnel. But apparently, I don’t have carpel tunnel. I have cubital tunnel.
He thinks I may need surgery, depending on how extensive the nerve is damaged, but the only way to find out is by doing a $500 test.
I don’t got no $500.
So I prayed and asked God, “What da dilly, yo?” (Okay, not really, but you get the idea.) And Jeff actually thought that the pain may be related to a study I did with the NIH. So, upon asking them, they referred me to their doctors and they are going to do the test for free.
How about that? (Isn’t that something?!)
So, I’m going in again next Thursday morning to do this really uncomfortable test. In the mean time, they have me wearing this really uncomfortable elbow brace. It hurts more than it helps.
I would appreciate much prayer in this area. Seeing that the surgery would be very time intensive and would probably knock me out from raising support for at least a week.
In other news,
I’m re-doing parts of my web site because it’s klucky and I’m tired of seeing the errors on my reports. So, things will probably break from time-to-time. If it does, let me know. I’m also going to be working on a website for my ministry partners. The page isn’t quite working right. I think it has something to do with the DNS entries. But you can check out the prototype page. You should be able to get to it by pointing your browser to http://donor.mikesoh.com…but it doesn’t work right for some reason.
Oh, you know, I almost forgot the best compliment I got this week. Yeah, this week!
Nadine and I will be going shopping at L.L. Bean this Saturday. I’m pretty excited about it. So I call to confirm and she tells me that her and her fellow mafia ladies decreed that I am going to make some woman a wonderful husband. I was quite speechless. I was flattered, of course, but really began to think about it this week. And I came to the conclusion that I think it’s because of the women of MCF deserve the best. Women in general deserve to be treated with honor and respect. And I thank them for helping me the man of integrity that I am today.
You all deserve this more than anyone else:
