I suppose it's about time I got back to my blog. Many of you know the reason I've been away for a few weeks...quadruple bypass, open heart surgery. Not my heart, but my husband's. They prepared us that he would be in the hospital for 5-7 days. I knew I would have hours on end of boredom, so I figured I'd get in some good blogging time. I didn't expect what actually happened (isn't that an understatement that's true of our lives?). The surgery was very successful and I patiently (well, sort of patiently) sat and waited during the days of recovery in ICU and CCU. I had a thick book and my laptop with me for those long hours of sitting. I figured I would read and write the hours away. Wrong. I tried to read and couldn't concentrate for more than a page or two. I tried to write and couldn't put a coherent sentence together. It was a strange feeling and one I can't explain. I couldn't do anything. I just sat there.
It's 13 days past surgery and the pastor is doing well. He's bored beyond belief, but each day he makes progress and we're praising God for his protection and provision. You can tell, I haven't completely got my blogging game back, but life is slowly returning to normal (whatever that is) and maybe someday soon, I'll have something worthwhile to say. For now, thanks from the bottom of our "hearts" to all our family and friends who have been praying us through.
