|A key part of Revocery is the right food|
My plate 5 days after surgery was Tilapia (Fish), Asparagus, Carrots and Apples
A very tasty meal prepared by my dear Frances
|4 days after surgery, I walked outside outside our house|
behind me and all the way to the corner! It felt GREAT!
Of course, I give highest praise to Jesus, my healer, for giving me the extra-ordinarily smooth trip through these troubled waters. I give much credit to my dear wife of 54 years, Frances, who never left my bedside except to eat or grab a cup of coffee in the family waiting room. She was attentive to my every move while I was in the hospital ... night or day. She has been my primary care-giver. Our "#1 daughter", Frankie, gave of herself and would not leave her Mom the first day. Ruthie, our "Favorite One", was there when she could get off from work. These two girls were so helpful that they deserve much thanks for giving their love and their prayers. Our "Pet" was in touch by telephone from the place of her role as Pastor's wife in upstate New York. All were praying. I know that I'm blessed to have a family sub-structure of praying believers who love their family.//and that's on both sides (Frances and mine) of our family.
Time and space and lack of re-call abilities prohibit me from telling you all of those who did such kind acts and sent notes, cards, flowers, phone calls and personal visits. You, my blog friend, whether from the past or from more recent months, also made my recovery move more smoothly with your encouragement, scriptures, and words of support. THANK YOU.
Next Friday, the 9th of December, I meet Dr. Portera to discuss the route we take for chemo. The lab report said there are micro-scopic amounts of cancer still left to deal with. (One of 23 lymph-nodes examined showed signs of cancer.) Pray that this goes well. I have no idea what's in store for me - but I know that the Lord has assured me that He is healing me. I trust Him.
