I pray that God will continue blessing you and Judy.I'm glad that the transplant is over. Trusting that God has great things in store for you, I can't wait until you're back at church singing and shouting for Jesus.We might even get a solo. God has truly blessed me with the opportunity of having the chance to have a hand in helping with your fundraiser. This gives me a chance to give back, it's a way to thank God for all the times that he has spared my life.I know what it's like to be in a hospital at the mercy of others.You will have good days, you will have bad days but through it all God will see you through. When either of you get down and need to talk I'm just a phone call away. That 90 days will seem like forever, you have to find ways to make the time go fast. Sometimes no matter how bad things seem,we have do all in our power to make things seem better, and sometimes that makes them better. We have to get up when we don't feel like getting up.We have to laugh when we don't feel like laughing.Sometimes we also have to cry, it's ok to cry, sometimes crying can be good for the sole.A long hospital stay is never any fun, I know I was in the hospital from July 14,1984 until the middle of December 1984, I had to return in March of 1985 and stay for another 45 days. I found ways to help other patients in doing that I was able to focus more on others and less on myself, I belive that helped my healing. I took care of myself. but I didn't have time to feel sorry for myself . Ask God to give you the strength that you need to take some of the focus off of Walter and Judy and spend that time focusing on those around you. You can always find someone that needs to hear a word from you,you can share a word from the lord. I promise you that if you do all you can to help other patients and families, your healing will come faster and your time that you have to be away from home will go fast.You and Judy have a strong love for each other, you have a for better or worse in sickness and health love Let God use the two of you to pass that on to others.While at Barnes and Hope House let God use the two of you to make a difference in the life of someone else. Love you and praying for both of you.
