IVs, Chicken Broth, and Melatonin

Well, I got back from the doctor a little bit ago. It seems that they were able to squeeze me in for my neuro testing and spinal ultrasound early, so I got both appointments done between 10:00 and 12:00.
I have a number of new pills to take, including another hormone. I'm to stay on my high dosage of pain killers, and I am going to have weekly IV therapy infusions. We may actually go up to two times a week if they seem to do any good. If not, then we're going to be looking at fibromyalgia and health clinics outside of the state, and then hospitals. I'm just praying that the new meds and the therapy will work.
The only thing about the IV infusions is that it will take about 2 + hours for every infusion. That plus the lydocaine that they're going to put in my IV (usually used by the dentist to numb one's mouth, but for me, used internally to help relax my muscles and numb my hyperactive nervous system), will make that day pretty much shot. I won't be able to drive myself anywhere, and will be pretty tired afterwords. But if it helps, then so be it!

Dum de dum de dum....

Wow. Ok, so I really haven't fulfilled my promise to tell you about me and little talks with the Holy Spirit, who is my constant peanut gallery. Cool and weird at the same time.
But, this morning, as I was sitting down to my computer to go through all my new emails, facebook notifications, and blog posts from people I'm following, HS said to me "James 5:11". I blinked, shook my head, and looked around for my bible. It wasn't close. So I went to biblegateway.com, looked up James 5:11, and lo-and-behold...it was exactly what I needed to hear.
Perfect for my situation.
"11As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy."
