Please forgive me for sending all the info you want this way but I have been so busy. emoticon As you read my last blog you saw why; too many things going on.

Wednesday I made a 50 mile round trip to have a stress test. It wasn't bad at all and the man who gave it to me was able to lift me on the belt. He couldn't have done that before I lost my weight. That got me off to a good start, someone could lift me. The tow truck driver lifted me up into his tow truck. WOW. Makes me feel like a young girl again.

Well Thursday I made the 50 mile round trip again to see the doctor and get the report and he said emoticon now listen to this. My heart is good. He didn't find anything wrong with it and he ok'd me for surgery. emoticon

This morning I called about my house repair and found out they are going to replace my entire carpeting and they will have someone move my stuff as I can't do it. and are also going to put new cabinets in where the water heater is. I know I will have to arrange things. emoticon Does someone want to loan me your good son to come and help. Several of you speak of your sons helping you so much. Too bad I don't have any. Do have 2 step sons but they don't come down here.

Then I called the Doctor who is doing the knee surgery. A lady spoke to me and said I am already scheduled for the 9th of February. I told her of the house and she said I could call her if I needed more time. I think I'll need time to breathe.

A friend said he would pick up my car so that is no problem.

So things are moving and I take one day at a time. God has his timing and His will will be done.

Thanks all of you for caring.

    Life sure hasn't been easy for you lately. I'd come over myself in a heartbeat and help you - how far do you live from Detroit?!? Good luck with everything.

  Irene, your life sure did take a big big change with all of the obstacles and life threatening things happening to you.

Broadsided is enough to scare you quite a bit and am so thankful you are still here with us.

Just think so many new things to your home which is just so good.

Our Lord has a plan for your life that has to be finished and full filled and He is protecting you from all harm and all hurt.

His plan for your life will not be defeated by the trick and stratigies of the enemy of old.

    Wow Irene - I have been in your shoes with so much on your plate -- but I never did handle it like you with so much grace.

What day do you need help to move things around.....maybe Becky and I could go ....
and I can also ask my son Nathaniel and my cousin.....they live in Edinburg.

Please let me know what day......

Hugs - Marcy

    So great that you are healthy enough for the knee surgery! emoticon

I don't have any sons either, I am not high on my only SIL's list, no help there either. emoticon

I DO have 2 neighbor boys that help once in a while. The Senior Chore Program is helpful for minor repairs, the fee is on a sliding scale and very affordable. Their Volunteers are thoroughly vetted and reliable. emoticon Is there something like that in your area?

    Prayers to you and your doctor for the upcoming surgery. Don't hesitate to ask your church for help. If I were in your church I certainly would help as I have been there before and my church was wonderful to help me. emoticon

    Hi, Irene - I was going to mention that you should ask for help at your church, and then I saw your update above that someone from your church will help you. God is providing for you! emoticon

    What good news your heart is so strong! New carpeting will be nice, glad to hear they will be moving furniture for you.

I would loan you my son but he is at Marine Corps bootcamp out here in California. :)

    Irene, no need to apologize for giving us updates in a blog, this is an excellent way to let friends on all your teams know!

It sounds like everything is falling into place, just wish you didn't need to put off the surgery for a bit but you know how you feel and you must do what's best for you.

Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. Thanks for the update.

    Finally things are coming together for you. Hopefully somebody from your church can supply you with some help.

Having men picking you up sounds pretty daring. Have some fun with it. I told everyone that I slept in four different beds from Christmas Eve until the day after New Years Day. My son's house on Christmas Eve, up at Lutsen for four nighte, back into my own, and then at a friend's house for New Years.

Thanks for the update. emoticon emoticon

    Now you should have had someone take a picture of all those men picking you up Irene. When I reach my goal, believe me, I will be doing that and bragging to everyone around., lol Really glad that everything is a go for the knee surgery. Then you will really be able to get around again. I am keeping you in my prayers and try to find your blogs/updates. (((HUGS)))

    I do wish I could send Nick and Kenny over, to help you. They would be more than willing.

Looks like it will all work out, fine though. God does have you covered and will send the right people to you.

    Thanks Irene for the update, and so glad things are beginning to get put together. I know you will be glad when everything settles down a bit. You are in my daily prayers, and wish I could share my Son, but he stays pretty busy helping me, and a new married life. :)

Love ya and God Bless
