Little did I think a month ago that it would take me this long to write another blog after my heart ablation. What was supposed to entail a night in the hospital and a few days of rest ended up being 14 days in hospitals and feeling absolutely horrible the past two weeks. But, just as all good things must come to an end; so all bad things must run their course and end also.
It goes without saying that I have been locked in a bad stretch for quite some time now. In many respects I feel (and look) as Rocky Balboa did after going 15 rounds with Apollo Creed in Rocky 1 and 2. I have been pounded upon, beaten to a pulp and smacked around the ring for the past 15 months now, yet I am still standing. Beaten and battered I may be, but defeated I am not.
I finally turned the corner yesterday and felt good for the first time in many weeks. Although I still have issues (such as the oxygen I am on 24/7), I can live with that as long as I am getting stronger and feel better daily. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired, and thus I am resolved to move forward and not look back while striving to maintain my spiritual dignity.
Thank you for all your prayers for me the past month. I cannot begin to thank you enough for not forgetting about me during this time of duress and stress. As I move onward and upward in the coming days and weeks, I look forward to being a contributing member of this body once again. Thank you for your patience with me, prayers for me and love to me.
Blessings 2 You,
What a blessing to "hear' from you in a blog again. I say nothing more than ... Praise God for His faithfulness to you and Beth. Your trust and holding fast in the Lord helps me and all others on this site press forward to our high calling in Christ Jesus.
Giving thanks and praise in Him,
Thanks Kirk for your yet early contributions to the Lord !
Such a great statement "just as all good things must come to an end; so all bad things must run their course and end also."
How true that is we need to remember that and you both are still in my prayers.
You have been greatly missed!
Be blessed forever
Praise God! Beth had posted earlier that you had "turned the corner" and I am blessed to see a blog by you once again. I am continuing to pray for your full recovery.
I thank God that you are feeling better and able to bless us all with a blog, even a short one. I truly feel great compassion for the many trials you have had to endure and pray the Lord would see fit to give you health and freedom from pain from now on. God Bless.
Knocked down but not knocked out, stumbling but not out for the count; - your blog reminded me of 2 Cor. 11:30 'If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.'
Wonderful blog full of hope and joy.
