This is the most personal thing I have written so far, but I feel led to do it. If you read this and pray, I thank you with all my heart.
It’s almost been 17 months since this journey began for Ed and I. Tonight I am moved to tears by his love. He is unable to do many things YET (like cooking or driving). But tonight he got leftovers out of the fridge for dinner and proceeded to fix both of us a plate and reheat in the microwave ( I recently had surgery and am using a knee scooter so he is helping me.) Sometimes it’s easy to forget how far he has come since last January, and to be overwhelmed by the “waves” of this storm. But for me this act of love was a needed reminder that God is with us, He is for us, He is faithful, He is love and He is working.
This is Ed on our 45th anniversary, about a month before he became ill. I thought a photo would make this article more personal, give a focus for prayers.
The good news is that as of April 30 he will be on no daily drugs for CNSV. The next thing for him is Cervical laminectomy and fusion of C1-6 on May 10, followed by 12 weeks in a neck brace.If you are someone who prays, please say one for him and those who will perform the surgery and care for him after.
I am adding my prayers too. I am thanking God that according to…
Psalm 103 He heals all of Ed’s diseases
Psalm 91 He satisfies Ed with long life
Psalm 23 He restores Ed’s soul (mind, will and emtions)
And that all medications given are helps to his body and do him only good and no harm. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Oh how grateful I am that He loves Ed and you, and me!
