The Platypus Travels

Hi all,

my wife and I will be back East next week for my student's senior trip. They visit the Capitol, Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and New York. We're going with the same agency we went with last time, and I was really impressed with last year's trip. This should be another great experience. Please keep us in your prayers for safe travels and also that my health problems (bad back, stomach) would not get in the way of the trip.

Platypus Maladies Part IV

The doctor says that I'm healing up on schedule, and that he doesn't see any reason to resort to harsher treatments. Evidently, the condition I have never fully heals, but as the damage done to my chest heals, the stomach stuff should become more manageable. Hopefully that's the last word on it.

Platypus Maladies Part III

I go in to the doctors on Thursday at 3:00 this week. I have some symptoms that they're worried about, though they can't say what kind of tests they want to run (if any) until they've had a look at me. Until then, I'm on an all liquid diet. Please pray:

1. for healing.
2. for wisdom for the doctors to correctly diagnose and treat my illness.
3. that any tests or treatment would be easy, quick, and as painless as possible.
4. for my family and community that have been stressing and suffering with me through this.
5. for grace for me not to make extra trouble for my family and community through either frustration or short-temperedmness.
