broken hearts become brand new

It's summer in March here in the city. It's awesome. Last Friday? It was storming. Today? Clear blue skies and sunny with just enough of a breeze.

I spent the day lounging in bed and then a nice lunch with the hubby and one of his buddies (who also happens to be a coworker). Ah, I love unused vacation days from the previous year that absolutely MUST be used up by the end of Q1.

The week did not start off so gloriously. Oh wait, it kind of did since I took Monday off too (and this coming Monday too, life is hard I know) but then it took kind of a super crappy turn for the worse when my re-test numbers came back and they were catastrophically awful - awful to the point where my doctor asked me to come into the office even though I couldn't make it in until two hours after his last appointment. Hm, that's never a good sign is it?

And then?

Well, it turns out the results weren't across the board bleak. In fact, upon closer inspection, they were a bit...odd. My blood tests were horrendous, urine test (sorry, tmi?) not so much. In fact, strangely better than the last test. So instead of ramping up the medication like I think everyone (me, my mom and my doc) thought was going to be the inevitable outcome of this emergency visit, instead we did a retest of the retest.

*drumroll please*

ALL tests have significantly improved and most are actually almost back to where I was four months ago when everything was peachy-keen.


My doctor is perplexed. He said the last tech who drew my blood must have somehow screwed up the draw or something happened with the sample. But that still doesn't explain why things are actually better than the original test that kicked off all the drama last month.

The only explanation I can think of is kind of kooky. My mom and aunt have gotten into this chakra healing thing (which is apparently old eastern medicine which has more recently been co-opted by the new age movement) and ever since my bad results they have been doing healing sessions with me, my mom has even been coming into the city once or twice a week. When my mom heard about it from my aunt she got really excited because supposedly a lot of lupus patients have shown a lot of improvement with regular treatments. I went along with it because I figured at the very least it wouldn't hurt anything (basically they sort of meditate with their hands over my energy points).

Anyway, I'm not getting my hopes up too high yet, but I must say, my feet look great. Even after my good results, I still felt like my legs were swelling all week because they felt heavy and bloated. My feet were starting to get discolored. But today my feet look totally normal and my legs feel normal again. Of course, that could be because I spent the bulk of the day laying in bed!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

"My mom and aunt have gotten into this chakra healing thing..."

You should stay far away from any kind of "new age" healing type stuff, Joyce.

As Christians, we shouldn't be drawing on "energy" that we don't understand -- especially ones that are associated with eastern religions.

There's only one "Divine Physician."

We can make a trade. If you stop that Chakra stuff, I'll pray for your by name every day in the chapel here. Deal? ;-)
Hi Dan! Whether or not this "longevity" thing (that's what my mom and aunt call it) conflicts with my Christian beliefs is definitely something that I think I need to spend more time praying about. Thanks for bringing it up =) And your prayers are ALWAYS, always welcome because prayer is something I absolutely believe in!
Yay! I'm so happy things are looking up!
