My Apologies

I had the best of intentions to post a “Mondays with Mark” and a reflection on Original Sin and Romans 5.  But, instead, I spent most of the day in doctors’ offices, at the pharmacy, getting another MRI, and being fitted for a leg brace.

My disc herniation has worsened significantly, leading to “foot drop” in my left foot.  I’ll have a microdiscectomy next Wednesday.  I’m also going to winter camp with my kids’ school this Wednesday through Friday.

I’m going to do my best to keep up with posts, but I ask your patience as I battle through all this.

May Christ’s healing touch work from the top of your head to the tips of your toes to the depths of your being. Amen.
Peace, Tim

Mark Patrick was associate pastor of the church I grew up in I believe (Minnetonka – back in the 70’s). A great guy.
If it is the same person, he’ll probably remember things like coffee on Saturday mornings on the point at my grandparents house … (although 30 years is a long time – so perhaps not.) You could give him my e-mail, or direct him to one of my posts on Scot’s blog.

Det som utmärker plantar fasciit är belastningssmärta under främre delen av hälen, men den kan även sträcka sig mot mitten av fotvalvet och bakre delen av ankeln. Vid plantar fasciit uppstår smärtan framförallt när en aktivitet startas. De första stegen på morgonen eller efter vila. Ofta blir det värre ju mer foten belastas under dagen.
