What Would People Think?

Mayo Bound

So Christy's been having symptoms since late January. Heart palpitations, dizziness, extreme pain in the chest, neck, and back. The symptoms come and go without warning.

And the doctors haven't found a thing. We've been going to a cardiologist who can't find anything wrong and has a horrible bedside manner. We've been to various specialists who can't see beyond their narrow discipline. And it hasn't worked.

So, in addition to prayer, we're trying a new tack. We're headed to the Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL branch. Mayo's known for teams of specialists working together. Hopefully, they'll do that for Christy. Hopefully someone's thinking outside the box. So we pray.

The appointment's next Monday. Thoughts and prayers appreciated.


  • Laura and I send our prayers. I wish Christy all the best. After all, I hear she is objectivly the most wonderful woman in the world.

    The Mayo clinic knows their stuff, so I'm sure it'll turn out. Maybe they'll even diagnose her with "three-stooges syndrome".

  • Please know we are praying for you for safety and peace of mind as you travel to FL. We are also praying that the doctors will be kind and wise as they discover what is causing all of this.

    This verse popped into mind this morning and I wanted to share it with you. Isaiah 26:3-4 "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal."

    We love you both and hope that this will go quickly and painlessly for you and that you still get to come visit on the 4th.

  • You know, citing (oh boy, I'm a lawyer...) the Bible here is good stuff. This past Sunday Catholics heard Matthew 10:26-33. Specifically, "Do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."

    I always loved that one, and as I reflected on it some more, I felt it might be a comfort now.
