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.
