Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

Well, I slept a little more last night with a big dose of ativan.  I was awake some but not as bad as it had been.  Then they gave me a big dose of ativan to relax me and so I've had a nap.  That nap was lovely.  Stupid lunch.

I saw a doctor, not my doctor, who was really good about going through everything I've ever taken and finding something I could.  I don't know how well this is going to work; it's a tiny Seroquel increase, decreasing my patch dose a bit (to see if it's agitating me) and adding another med that might make me sleepy.  I don't feel incredibly hopeful but tomorrow my "real" doctor will be here so hopefully that will get new ideas if this doesn't work.

For now I've got 15 minutes to get un-groggy before group.  Groups, by the way, one of things I needed to make me get out of bed, the person who does most of them wasn't here yesterday or today.  I really hope she's not off all week.  I need forced activity.  And i fI know this and am aware and willing I really need it.

We'll see what happens next.

I've been blessed today as I search scriptures, praying that you will feel blessed and encouraged. I am inspired by your enduring faith in spite of all the hardships you experience.

I appreciate your good report of the doctor's thoroughness. Thank the Lord that your "real" doctor is going to be available tomorrow--and tomorrow's almost here! After your activities, I pray you rest well, dear Jen. May you sense the presence of angels, saying "Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill to men" (and women, too!).

Here's the Amplified Bible for you:

Psalm 91: 11 For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

12 They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.

14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness--trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.
