A day of "unplugging

Hello everyone, I have been gorked out pretty good over the last few days, so I have lost track of time. Slow start this am, but the Dr.'s have decided it was time for me to try some solid food and see how it goes. Grits, eggs and toast never tasted so good. Then I ate a late lunch of chicken, spinach and a few bites of sweet potato. So far everything is doing it's job.
I have had several visitors come to my room and pray for us - people that I don't even know - friends of a friend type thing. That's a blessing.

Today has been a day of "unplugging" - in more ways than one. I no longer have an NG tube or the Foley - every man's fear! And the epidural pump has been removed from my spine. I'm glad I went with the epidural. Now we will be carefully using pills in place of the epidual pump.
I've been between faith and frustration about 1000 x's today. I guess that is the challenge to all of us everyday. Choose life like He said.
Jimmy C. came by for a visit. He is a friend of Robin's from LSU. Several friends of the John's also came by for a visit. Mom, Dad and aunt Eva came by, too. They have been such a comfort and blessing in so many ways."

We continue to pray for those mentioned in previous posts. Thanks for everything ya'll. To God be the Glory. GW/RW.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind"

George, thanks for the post. Glad to hear your recovery is well under way. "the prayer of a rightious man avails much" and you my friend are rightious in the biblical and in the 1990's slang term kinda way! Life is a song George, we decide what song we will sing, I hear honesty and strenght in your words, and a great song sang to the wonder of the God we serve. Thanks again.

Awesome! Thank the Lord He is giving you strength and "sustaining you through the frustration". All in "due season" and you will be back at home, smelling the "Central air" with the birds singing in the background,your own bed and pillow, waking up with the family all together eating home cooked breakfast!!! and ofcourse your dog barking in the background saying "boy, am I happy to see you!"
Hang in there Robin and thank you for the updates!
Psalm 20
May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he send you help (intercessory prayer)from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will "SHOUT" for "JOY" when you are "VICTORIOUS" and will lift our banners (in glorious praise and thanksgiving) in the Name of our God. May the Lord "GRANT" all your requests. AMEN AND AMEN!!!!
Be encouraged brother!!!
