Thank God for His Tender Mercies and Healing Grace

When you read this post on Monday I will be on my way to surgery.

As many of you know, in August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.

I have been without a knee and in a wheelchair since late August. On Monday, God willing, I will get my new knee. The surgery is in the morning and then I will be in the hospital for a few days.


My sweet sister drove down from Iowa through the Arctic blast to be with me this week.


I am very fortunate to have wonderful writers and friends who will fill in for me while I am out. Also, I will likely not be checking email for several days.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support during this difficult time.
And, thank God for his tender mercies.
