Two Weeks Later, Fantastic Voyage Continues

That was the movie … Fantastic Voyage. The one where the people are sent in a capsule through a person’s body. Kept forgetting the name of that movie that described my capusle edoscopy procedure I last posted about. Still waiting for the results to come back from that. In the mean time, on the way […]

“Journey Inside” Ends …. For Now

The day ended without much fanfare, which is fine with me. It ended up being a fairly redemptive day actually. Yesterday was our 24th anniversary. Colleen had to work in the evening and I wasn’t feeling too well, so we didn’t do much. Today turned out to be our “hang” day together. After checking in […]

“Journey Inside” Begins!

It’s  8:30 am and Colleen and I are at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. We left home at 5:00 am. At 8:00, I swallowed the camera for my capsule endoscopy. As you can see in these pictures, they even had it hooked up to the “real-time viewer” so I could see the camera in […]

Wherever You Go, There You Are

The last two days have been a bit hard to get my mind around. Colleen and I are at El Capitan Canyon, north of Santa Barbara. We left around 3:30 Sunday afternoon. I drove from home to one of our favorite produce stands in Somis. Colleen drove from there. Throughout this physical challenge, I haven’t […]

A Gracious Day

Not feeling any different today physically, but it has been a gracious day. I had the opportunity to officiate the wedding of a young couple in our church. The bride’s family has been a part of our church from her early years. A man came into her life some time ago and swept her off […]

Feeling Crappy

How’s THAT for an honest post title? Feeling crappy. Not just physically, but emotionally. Maybe even spiritually right now. Not only do I not feel a whole lot better after 7 weeks and 33 pounds of fighting this stomach thing, but now my kids have just left for Youth Group. I know … shouldn’t I […]
