Gah!

All attempts at getting work done have been derailed. My sweet coworker Julie, who has been through more in the past two years than any woman should have to endure, has informed me that her husband walked out on her Sunday after she discovered a long-hidden pornography addiction. She’s devastated, wondering how in God’s name her 28-year marriage can survive this.  And where it all came from, and how she missed it all these years, etc.

My heart is broken for Julie. It’s not that pornography is the worst thing in the world. It’s that her husband has been lying and hiding and concealing this problem for their entire marriage and she feels beyond betrayed. And he doesn’t seem willing to do anything about it. Please pray for Julie and her husband Paul–they clearly need divine intervention right now!

On another note, I had my second bariatric study meeting yesterday and it was much, much better. Subject #2 seemed much more grounded this week… no more pie-in-the-sky “WLS fixes life” talk. Progress, people!

I need to write a 15-page research proposal and then take a final exam while filling in for Julie who’s taking the week off to deal with her family crisis. Please pray for her–and me!

Summer is coming. Summer is coming. Summer is coming.
