"whatever you do, in word or deed..."

"And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." Colossi ans 3:17 This day did not turn out exactly as we thought it would. John went for a maybe routine heart doctor visit, and ended up being set up for surgery, minor of course (minor if it is someone else?). He has to have his pacemaker battery replaced. The worst part is the 10 day recovery in which he cannot go outside and sweat or get the incision wet at all...he will be housebound for those ten days. John is a gardener, he likes to piddle outside and this will be really hard on him. He had all the tests, heart echo, EKG, etc. and so we are set for this in about two weeks.
I was still on my usual post chemo feeling pretty good until tonight, still fired up on the Dexadron, but now it will be pretty much downhill for the next few days. That is OK, I made it though the four cycles and now we can find out if it is working.
We are both thankful for our doctors and our medical care. We are thankful for the sale of our house. We are thankful for our apartment. We are thankful for family and friends. Especially we are thankful for our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ and His care for us.

    Oh my! Another bump in your road of life. Tell John how much we love him if we don't catch him at church before the surgery. And extra prayers, a double helping, will be going up from our home for yours. We love you both, and I am still positive, Bev; this chemo is WORKING! I have felt it from the get go. I can't wait to hear the doctors say it. You DO look too good to be sick! We love you with all our hearts.
