I have bad news, guys. No blog post today.
It was as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced….Sorry, I recently went on a Star Wars binge and can’t help myself.
Anyway, this Friday I planned to write a review of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson, but woke up today and realized that that wasn’t going to work. Here’s why:
As many of you know, I have Lyme disease. My parents have it, too. It’s been 3 and ½ year with major symptoms and no treatment thus far has worked. That fact is painful, depressing, and hard to live with sometimes. But we keep looking for a cure, because there has to be one out there, right?
We’ve found a clinic in Kansas that specializes in alternative medicine and treating sick, messed up people like us. It’s expensive, it takes a lot of time (6 hours of treatment, 5 days a week, for 2 weeks), but it has helped a lot of people.
So, tomorrow, we are headed off to Kansas, where it is extremely hot, where Todo has been long dead, and where we hope to find healing.
This has been in the works for a while. We’ve prayed about it and we’ve had many amazing people helping us. Will the treatment work? I have no idea. I hope so. But I can’t get through this on my own. I have two favors to ask of you:
1. Please pray for us. If you aren’t religious, then maybe cross your fingers and wish us luck? This is very important to us. I hate having Lyme disease. I hate that my loved ones have it. I want healing badly. But, no matter how this turns out, I want my faith in God to remain strong. So please pray for healing, for peace, and for strength. Not just for me, but for my entire family.
2. Please be patient. I will not be personally posting anything for a while. I have an amazing blogger slated to guest post here next Friday. I may end up having to find another blogger to guest post the Friday after that as well, because I don’t know how rough the treatment process will be. I’ll also be a bit lax with my social media presence. So, if I seem to drop off of the face of the earth for the following 2 weeks, know that I’ll be back soon.
Also, a quick note: A lot of you have been asking about my recent surgery. While I intend to write a full blog post about it sometime (hopefully soon, but, in light of current circumstances, probably not), I wanted to let you all know that I’m doing fine. The tumor was in my neck, but the surgeon was able to remove it all without damaging any of my nerves or cutting my head off. The pathology report shows that it was noncancerous. I’m healing well. Thank you all for your prayers, kind tweets, and encouraging comments. You guys are the coolest people on earth.
Now, I’m off for a goodbye swim in the ocean. Then I’ll come back home, pack, and tomorrow I’ll be in Kansas. Treatment begins on Monday. I will give occasional brief updates on Facebook, so if you’re wanting to stay in the loop, just send me a friend request.
Thank you all for your continued support. I hope to come back on here in two weeks and tell you that me and my parents are Lyme free. Until then, God bless you all.
