I have a lot of long term projects hanging over my head right now, and recently had a big breakthrough about them–they aren’t important! There are obviously parts of everyone’s lives that necessarily create a pit in their stomachs, but it’s occurring to me that they don’t need to comprise a large part of my day and concerns.

Updates and Surgery

I am doing great, praise God! I saw Dr. Rassam last week and he was back to his old self.
