Gastroenterology, Brothers and Azalea!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:26 pm  

Mighty cold this morning! Bird baths were frozen solid.

This morning I had my initial meeting with new gastroenterologist, Dr. King.

I’m 51 now so I’m going in for my colonoscopy. If everything looks ok, they said I only have to do it every 10 years.

No food at all that you can’t see through the day before. Four liters of powerful laxatives. Any wonder I’ve put it off?

I’ll have the appointment next Friday the 19th. Pray for that!

On the way to that appointment the road was blocked by a fire. Had to go another way.

On the way back, I saw what had been burned. I’ve been in a couple of fires. Scary.f

Had a great lunch with my brothers Tito and Lester Ruiz.


Don’t know if you’ve ever played in a band before, but I think it’s the closest thing to being married. There’s something about playing music together that really binds people.

We had a delicious Colombian meal at Reencuentro Colombiano. Great food. Great fellowship! We talked a lot about the missions at Gwinnett Crossings and The Falls in Duluth. Some amazing opportunities over there.

Came back home to pick up Jesse. We went over to Best Buy to pick up a copy of Windows 7. Jesse’s trial version was about to expire. He’s been using an early release beta version.

Then over to Azalea. Man was it a mad house!

We had making literature puzzles with Jimmy and Rebecca, spelling and writing sentences with Josie, Jocelyn and Sanjida, direct and indirect pronouns with Mustak plus kids that come by just to say hi.

We didn’t leave the mission till about 7:30pm. We normally leave around 6pm or so.

But if we don’t help them, they’ll make a 0. And a 0 is mighty hard to have and pass.

Admin work now.

Fun day with my brothers!

I thought this frost was cool.
