LATEST ON KNEE SURGERY


Friday, March 08, 2013

This is short but it is for all my friends who are not on my teams and didn't read this there.

Today I registered for the surgery. It took hours and lots of tests. I have such good church friends from my church and from other churches also. They are coming out of the wall when I need them. Texas is a friendly state. And I have found out if you want to have friends you must be a friend.

While we were waiting in the waiting room a lady began to talk. She had such a sad story. My friend and I went over to pray with her. I sat down beside her and just took her in my arms and hugged her and told her it was alright to cry. Then we prayed for her. It was not only a testimony to her but also to others in the waiting room. God always has something for us to do.

I am to sign in tomorrow at noon. That doesn't mean the surgery will be then. Others had to go in at 8:00, others at 9:00 and I get to sleep in. WOO HOO. I don't get to eat but I would rather sleep in than eat.

My friend who went with me to register fixed my lunch and sent supper home. Healthy vegetable soup she made herself with guinea. I love it. Then her husband who is my health power of attorney had to come over and sign papers with me. They are family to me and are so precious.

Two ladies are taking me in in the morning and others will be there also.

God bless all of my Spark friends who are praying for a quick recovery.

Irene

    I was glad to hear you're back "on your feet" again, even if only for short times. I read about it on the maintaining team daily check-in.

I also loved the part in this blog, about how God always has work for us to do.

    JUST TALKED TO IRENE

It was hard to talk as I am sick and very little voice ----

She is doing well - surgery went well and they are starting to elevate and move her leg.

It was also hard to understand her at times (maybe cuz of meds) but she did ask me to let
you all know that she is doing well. Her paster and other church friends were there when she awoke from the surgery - Praise God! I will need to stay away till this bug is gone.

    God bless you, Irene! I will be keeping you in my prayers for all to go well, for the surgeon's hands to be sure and swift (well, not too swift, but for things to be done in a timely fashion) and for all of those attending to you at the hospital to be attentive and knowledgeable and kind!!
You sure do have a host of angels around you on earth AND I know in the heavenlies as well... so I will just do my best to be lifting you and your entire surgery up and praying for your recovery to be quick and successful as well!
