Phone Fast...

Oh cyber friends- you may be seeing more of me. The computer is my primary form of communication right now. A double edged sword I tell you...

I am on a talking fast. Nearly a month ago I came down with a virus. It was a real bugger. Headache, sore throat, muscle pain and laryngitis. Lost my voice for 4 days. Thought it was coming back but here I am... weeks later- and I can't seem to recover it. The smallest strain causes me to lose my voice all over again.

Dr. wants me to stop talking altogether to allow my voice to come back. I probably don't need to tell you what a joke this is. I have three children, I homeschool, and I deal with teenage lifeguards at a pool daily.

Please pray that this reconciles. That my voice comes back. That I am indeed healthy enough, and my muscles strong enough, to bounce back. That whatever part of Lyme that causes my muscles to be weak and incapable of straightening would not impact my throat muscles as I have become attached to my voice.

Furthermore- I am up in the wee hours of the morning to post this blog because my neurological system is wired tonight. I've had nothing but vivid, scary dreams all night. The kind where I'm being chased and or attacked and find myself waking to full body muscle twitches, weakness, and shakiness.

I know one day I will sing of the Lord's healing in my body... whether or this side of heaven or not... I do not know. What I do know and am quite certain of... regardless of my circumstance... I will continue to serve Him.

"Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word." Luke 1:38

While you are waiting to sing of God's healing work, remember that he is singing over you in love. (Zephaniah 3:17)

Chelle,

My friend, you know I am praying for you. I am praying that this hoarse voice is NOT Lyme disease but instead it is caused by Demi Moore disease...a desire to sound much more sexy than the rest of us aging mimi's around here.

You have Lyme!? After reading your blog for months now... I never knew you had Lyme. I do as well and after reading your blog over time I am encouraged to see you're getting so much out of life now.
