My Wednesday Night

I wanted to share my unusual Wednesday night. 

Here are some of my posts.

1st, yesterday (Tuesday) I woke up with a swollen leg, that was red and tender to the touch. Went to work and popped Advil like Tic-Tacs.

Wednesday, I called the doctor, sent pictures and he told me to go to the ER right now! Just in case it might be a blood clot. Which that is what killed my brother. 😩 (Just the thought of that put me on an emotional roller coaster.
Hello. Still in the ER. They took lots of blood and I had an ultrasound to check for clots. That’s about it for right now. 

And we have ruled out Zika virus, Ebola and TB and sorry no little Mexican cousins for your son. 

Sorry so late. Just saw the doctor. I’m going to live. She said I have Cellulitis, which is a spreading bacterial infection of the skin and tissues beneath the skin. She’s giving me antibiotics and pain meds. She wants me off for the next two days (she’ll go be me a note if needed.)

My final post from my ordeal:

Well, this was a fun way to spend my Wednesday night. Turns out I have Cellulitis and not all the other things I found on the Internet. The doctor gave me some mighty big antibiotics and pain medicine (woo whoo!) and she wants me off from work the next 2 days (aww… I’m sad about that.. what time is The Price is Right on?) Thanks for all the prayers and good juju, I felt them all the way down here in South Texas. ❤

Thanks to all my family and friends for sending me prayers and good juju via Facebook. That is probably one of the best things in Facebook on getting information to your family and friends. 

Side Note:

If there is something wrong with you, don’t look on the Internet to try to figure out what you have. Believe me, you start thinking you have all different kinds of stuff. 

Go to the doctors and get it checked out. I’ll be seeing a doctor at the end of the month for a way long overdue appointment. 

And sorry to my nephew, Brad and niece, Pam. I didn’t contact you when I was going into the ER. I know we have a rule to let each other know when serious things like that happen. I would say next time, but hopefully there will not be another time. 

Just What I Needed To Read

I saw this post on Facebook by Joel Olsteen Ministries. 

For the past couple of week’s, my mind has been spinning with so many thoughts and nothing at times. 

If you wait for all of your circumstances to calm down, then you’re never going to have peace. God didn’t say we wouldn’t have storms, but He did say He would give us peace in the midst of the storm. It’s called the peace that passes understanding—despite what’s going on around you, you can still be at peace.

In looking for a little bit of PEACE right now. Maybe if I read this to myself daily, I will find the peace I need. 

One Shining Moment 2016

One Shining Moment 2016…
I’m stealing this from my post in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012…

One Shining Moment

I’m a fan of Men’s College Basketball and I usually watch the games during March Madness. But my favorite part of NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship, is that they play “One Shining Moment” by Luther Vandross.
After I saw it, I watched it again. I just love this song and I like the CBS/TBS montage shows with the song.
Here is the 2016 version of “One Shining Moment”.

 
Lyrics to “One Shining Moment”

The ball is tipped
and there you are

you’re running for your life

you’re a shooting star

And all the years

no one knows

just how hard you worked

but now it shows…

(in) ONE SHINING MOMENT, IT’S ALL ON THE LINE

ONE SHINING MOMENT, THERE FROZEN IN TIME

But time is short
and the road is long

in the blinking of an eye

ah that moment’s gone

And when it’s done

win or lose

you always did your best

cuz inside you knew…

(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED DEEP INSIDE

ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW YOU WERE ALIVE

Feel the beat of your heart
feel the wind in your face

it’s more than a contest

it’s more than a race…

And when it’s done
win or lose

you always did your best

cuz inside you knew…

(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED FOR THE SKY

ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW

ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU WERE WILLING TO TRY

ONE SHINING MOMENT….

iTunes Play List: Secret Love

I have a play list on in my iTunes library called: Academy Award Best Original Song. One of them is “Secret Love” from “Calamity Jane” (1953) by Doris Day.

It has to be one of the prettiest songs I have ever heard. The play count of this song is 78 times. I can listen to this song over and over.

I haven’s seen the movie, but it is on my Bucket List of movies to watch.

Here are some facts about the song.

Secret Love” is a Pop song composed by Sammy Fain (music) and Paul Francis Webster (lyrics) for Calamity Jane the 1953 movie musical in which it was introduced by Doris Day in the title role.

Here are some other versions of the song done by different artists:

I would have to say that Doris Day’s version of the song is the best.
