Quick update

I made it through a couple of rough tests this week and am now waiting. We go tomorrow to visit the doctors and find out the results. One good result so far - my CEA blood level is a normal 2.4 - could be a foreshadow of a good report tomorrow.

I am continuing to grow closer to two companions, pain and waiting. I have a hard time figuring out just who they are and what they want. I enjoyed lunch with Nils today. We discussed the meaning of suffering in the life of the disciple of Jesus, "who for the joy set before him endured the cross." No conclusions yet - we're still working on it.

Romans 8:18
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
I love you, brother.

Not that I have much experience, but fellowship is a soothing balm for suffering, and suffering deepens fellowship. Thanks for sharing both with me.
