Another one. Yeah, another panic attack. It started 20 minutes ago at 1:20am Friday morning (7:30am Thursday EST). I'd been asleep about an hour and a half. It's not as bad as the last one. But I still won't be able to sleep for (EASILY) another half hour to hour.
Please refrain from telling me to test my thyroid - I did. The labwork got lost (we only realized yesterday) and it's still "in process". I appreciate the advice - but let's not beat a dead horse.
Please pray this stops.
While I'm on this prayer request line - I almost wrote a PR list post before bed, but skipped it.
1). We have a particular test/exam we want Joshua to have. We need a speedy reaction to our request with the doctors, the right doctors on hand on the day, a good interpretation by an excellent doctor, and Joshua's cooperation. If he doesn't cooperate, they can't do it.
2). Wisdom for the next step. It's difficult when you're face with two camps of thought - a)Let him go with dignity, don't put him through too much, do the best for him, and b) exhaust every possibility, leave no stone unturned, do the best for him. It's hard to know what's best sometimes.
3). Miraculous outcome for Joshua. Miracles might look different than we expect - but we expect miraculous outcomes for Joshua.
4). A conclusion regarding these night-time attacks. Whether it's medical/physical or medical/mental, or purely spiritual... I am SICK of them. They are debilitating and fear-riddled.
- That the job description gets finished quickly
- That the request for a reference letter from my old job gets to the right person and gets completed quickly
- That the fingerprints for the FBI background checks go through the first time, and that they follow the deadline on the form
- That the letter from Joshua's pediatrian (for confirmation of his diagnosis) is completed quickly
- No need for "additional information" once the application is in. (The results in my running around like a chicken with my head cut off for day - trying to find the "additional info").
