I do look here but haven't posted in a while. Things have been erratic lately.
On July 2, John fell/knocked off by the branch that suddenly came loose from the tree it was attached to. Since then he had spinal fusion which didn't heal and became infected, so sent to ER where they did a wound clean (11 or 12 days ago). He was in ICU for over a week and now in regular room. Twice a week he goes to surgery for a wound clean and rehooked to a wound vacuum. Now dr says it looks really good and Thurs or Fri a plastic surgeon will take a look and if he approves, he will close. John will be given IV antibiotics for another six weeks at home, and wear a brace when not lying down until October.
My faith and trust in God has increased substantially even more than it was already. Bouts of tears, exhaustion (John is in the downtown Houston medical center), especially the two weeks he was at home when I washed a load of towels every day because of the drainage in his back, and doing other things for him. When he doesn't have his brace on he is bedridden, can't be more than 30 deg elevated.
Prayers have sustained me and John has realized he has a "second chance." My prayer is he realizes all the love and compassion he has received from God's faithful ones are the reflection of God's love for him.
I will continue to pray for that realization for him. He is such a great guy and maybe he will realize before long that he needs to give his life to Christ and turn all of this current misery over to Him. I will continue to pray for both of you.
