To begin with let me express to each and every one of you amazing children of God my utmost and profound thanksgiving for your prayers and other signs of support yesterday. Whomever it was at the top of the Christian Blog team who placed the banner up for awhile yesterday-THANK YOU. Although I only saw it for a few seconds, I saw it was there and that amazing act of love and support is the very reason I have given so much of my life and resources to this site. THANK YOU.
To all who spent portions of yesterday on their knees, what can I say but THANK YOU and God bless you in ways previously unknown and unheard of. I am not sure if anyone ever got down on their knees to pray for me, let alone the many of you who I have come to find out did so yesterday. To each and every one of you all I can say is THANK YOU.
Reading some of the various messages, comments and prayer requests has truly brought me into the realization of just how blessed I am. If it were available and if I had the resources, once I get my strength back, I would go all around the country and meet you with sole purpose of washing your feet with my tears of thanksgiving. To all of you who took the time to think of me, pray for me and send all the love of Christ in your heart to me; all I can say is THANK YOU.
To all of you who took my wife "blest" under your wing in prayer and support, from both of us nothing more can be said then a huge and ginormous THANK YOU!!!! Whoever saw fit to purchase her a Premiere membership-THANK YOU, for otherwise it would not have been possible due to all the financial strain associated with my medical issues.
As deeply grateful as I am, and I could not begin to express it in mere words, I know the battle rages on. I was just informed that I must stay another day (at least) in this high dollar facility. Our wonderful insurance has a $500 per day co-pay for stays in the hospital. Oh what one could get at a five star Hotel for that rate. I also found out I get to come back in a couple of weeks for the second stent to be placed. I am so thrilled to think of being able to stay here again.
I will spare you the medical details, but due to allergies and my inability to handle normal medications used with stents-I am forced to take dangerous blood thinners which take days to regulate. As much as I hate the idea of taking the very chemical I used last fall to rid the barn of rats-I have no choice if I want the stent placed yesterday to work.
I am very weak, my body is rebelling against the strange mix of drugs being thrown at it and I have had a headache for nearly 24 hours. Yet, in spite of these things I remain the most grateful man on earth to have been blessed with your mutual faith and abounding Christian love. As I move forward in this ongoing adventure, I am strengthened by your faith and love so freely manifested.
I will go crawl back on the bed and rest seeing how this little time writing this has worn me out. But, please rest assured that I will be praying for you and especially those of you facing your own crisis' and woes.
What was manifested on this site yesterday was the most amazing display of love and support I have ever received in my life. To each and every one of you, I give you my heart (which is working much better) full of appreciation, love and thanksgiving. I count you as friends, family and spiritual partners; and as such, I owe you my life. Thank You.
:)You go get back in bed,, and take care of yourself, B2Y there's nothing I can say here, but that I pray God will contiune to comfort you and gave you peace in your heart & soul, and know that he is in control of it all ,when we place it there. I know you have , so just keep resting and trust the Lord for the rest, he will not ever fail us, you know that. Glad to hear from you today,and so happy you are doing well. AJ
We are absolutely thrilled with what God has done and will be in prayer as he continues to work. Rest and watch God move - both in you and blest. Make sure any 'coulda, shoulda, woulda's' are in the trash can with the lid on and allow God to replenish, renew, restore from the top of you head to the soles of your feet. In his time...
B2Y we are Praising God for his love and mercy, for all he has done and will continue to do in your life.
and I agree with Anna -get back in bed rest and let God restore you to health.
Hey , you better do what anna and poodle say brother. I wouldnt mess with them!!
I praise our merciful God for your recovery and trust him for your continued health.
We are praising God in NC!
Thanks for your advice and I will try to be "good". We had a bit of a curve ball thrown our way today and the Dr. says I have to stay here in the hospital until next Tuesday or so to get my blood thinned. Oh well, I guess I have many days to catch up on reading, praying and to some degree writing. Praise God for laptops, wireless in hospitals and for all He has done to provide for and bless us.
Thank you one and all and
Blessings 2 You
