Poisoned

I noticed it as soon as I got home from a recent shopping trip to PA- our house sounded like it was preparing for take off. πŸ›«

Apparently something had changed with the furnace and it created such a clatter we were a little skeptical whether it was wise to keep it churning away until the repair man arrived.

But since March has decided to reintroduce winter to the Valley-we kept it roaring away.

The next morning, bright and early the repair man arrived. “Hmm” he said “there’s a bearing out in the fan causing the racket. Also this open flame here is a problem, see the direction it’s blowing? That means it’s allowing gas to escape. Actually you should be concerned about Carbon Monoxide.”

So, we are limping along as best we can until the new system is secured.

Just out of curiosity, I googled symptoms of chronic Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. Basically my picture came up. It says that these symptoms are often misdiagnosed as chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, and GI issues. (Thank you for wading through one more post on my health saga πŸ€”)

Hmmm, the thought of being poisoned never sounded so exciting. πŸ™ˆ

I’m scared to believe that this is the missing puzzle piece, but it could be.

I was thinking how ironic it is that we’ve pursued all the symptoms and tried so many options, only to continue to be back where we started from.

And how crazy to think that we over thought everything EXCEPT the furnace monster spitting gas outside my bedroom door. πŸ€”

Often, I see life teaching me in allegory form. I could go all kinds of directions with this one…

But I’ll spare you πŸ™‚

I’m thankful that my Heavenly Father is the sustainer of Life and He protected our family once again.

But I think I will sleep with my window open tonight.

Rejoicing,

Kendra

See? I was serious when I said March is single handedly reintroducing Winter. πŸ€”
