Prayers for Recovery


I hope everyone had a great Easter!(c) Misty DawnS

We went to see Hub's great-aunt yesterday. She's the one I told you about, who was having surgery on her spine and nerved in her back. She is now staying with her son, because she will require constant care and supervision during a very long recovery.

When we first got there, I didn't think I would be able to stay. She was in a lot of pain and very confused. I care about and respect this woman so much that it was tearing my heart into pieces to see her like that.

After a short time though, her son took her back to her room, because she isn't allowed to be sitting up for too long. We sat with her in her room, surrounded by humidifiers and air purifiers, and taking breaks when it was time for her to take more medicine.

There had been some trouble with one of her medications causing bad side effects. So, once they took her off that medicine, she seemed to be doing better.

My favorite part of the visit was when she made a joke, then smiled, looked at us and said "Hey, I'm getting my old self back a little bit, aren't I?"

Please keep her in your prayers.

Still praying for your great-aunt-in-law...

Love the picture...I was on my way back from a funeral this morning and stopped on the side of the road to watch a bunch of baby billy-goats "trying" to scamper around...it was hilarious!

The more of "who you are" that you reveal .. the more I find to love about YOU.

I thank you, My Darling Friend, for sharing your true Heart. My heart gets a recharge from yours.

It's unfortunate that these things have to happen, but it's nothing the strength of a family like yours can endure. She'll be aight with you all looking after her like that. :)

The poor thing. Sometimes recovery seems like the hardest part of the whole process but I hope that soon this is all behind her and she's back to her old self again.

Prayers are going up now!

Keeping her in my prayers, Misty. Please keep us updated.
