We bought a turkey breast for the three of us and it was delicious. But I figured out that just turning the oven on makes Skunk sick. I haven't cleaned the oven in years (REALLY) and all the baked on stuff makes her react. So even if the baking of chicken or crackers doesn't bother her, the grime on the inside of the oven causes a reaction. So I have started scrubbing but I have to open the window and do it. This sensitivity stuff is just more than I can bear right now. I am praying frequently that God will allow Skunk to survive until I can get her gut treated and then that he will help her to heal. I can't feed my family because it makes my baby sick. This is so hard and miserable.
Only God is wise enough and powerful enough to help us through this misery. Please God, please be here and hold me. I just can't do this on my own. Help me to endure and be able to praise you in the midst of the storm of my life.

I am back at work in the ED and loving it. We have quite a few more people working than when I left so getting enough shifts is actually a problem. I had to talk to our managing doc and let him know that I need 4-5 shifts a month. He is going to work with me and see if we can keep me working. I love the ED work so much more than the nursing homes. I am going to attempt to keep seeing nursing home patients at least until April and make sure that things are working out in the ED.
Skunk is not sleeping well enough for me to work later night shifts and still get some sleep. She is very typically up about 430 or 5am and she and I walk the floor and then sometimes I can go back to sleep on the couch with her on my chest. Sometimes I can't go back to sleep so I walk or rock in the rocker and pray. Sure has gone a long way to keeping me humble and before my Lord. Ironic... ;) God uses our precious little ones to draw us to himself in so many ways.
I will leave you with a picture of my life's work... to God be the glory, great things HE has done!

My hope is nothing less than eternity and the saving blood of Jesus Christ. King David said it better than I ever could:
1How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing to the LORD,
for he has been good to me.
