It’s Monday and another Musing drops through your letter box.
I’ve been sitting on this one because…well you’re all medical and will ask lots of questions but here are all the answers you’re getting😎
I had a medical moment. A worry. So here is the timetable.
I became concerned on a Monday afternoon.
Rang the doctor who rang back Monday evening to discuss and decided I needed to see her.
Saw the doctor Tuesday morning first thing. She decided I should undergo further examination and said the hospital would contact me. I went home.
Tuesday afternoon the hospital rang. Whilst I was overwhelmed by the service, I was also becoming a little concerned over why things were happening so quickly🤔. I was booked for further examination…the following morning😳.
Wednesday morning was cold but sunny. I walked across the country park from my house to the hospital. I was seen by a medical technician who performed an investigation with a lot of jelly and very cold hands🥶.
He said some reassuring things but confirmed the consultant would ring me tomorrow with a full report.
Thursday afternoon I received the call from a nice doctor who explained what had happened and reassured me I had nothing to worry about. I was wise to go to my doctor but I could rest assured of my health.
What a three days!
Firstly I can only praise the medical professionals. And the system, well it worked for me.
But why did I choose to now tell you in my Monday Musing? Well, I now, with hindsight, realise that I experienced a spectrum of emotions, worries and concerns. And me, I can overthink like a champion so I am never going to have an easy journey if I’m walking a path like this. All very concentrated and should I have read the instructions I am sure they would have said “Must be diluted”.
But all life is a lesson for those who are prepared to learn and as I reflect I realise that I have now had insight into an experience that many must go through. Yes, I had two days of worry and overthinking. A series of “What if’s”, forward planning and some life questions. I now have some insight that may prove fortuitous at an empathetic level. If someone was to say “You don’t know”, well I may not have eaten the whole meal but I have sampled and tasted.
So, this week, consider the possibility of the lessons that exist if you are mindful of their presence. For those who listen, who take a moment, God speaks continuously in a myriad of ways. God is not limited as you and I are.
Be a willing student this week.
Your experiences are the currency of life. It is these that enable you to give empathy.Wic
