Open Heart Surgery Feb 12 2019

It began Feb 12 2019  7 am

I was as calm as going to have my teeth cleaned  ~~That is GOD giving peace

around  1 PM I was walking up with the vent (gagging) the nurse asked
if I wanted my family to come back or wait to the vent was out i motioned wait
until the vent was out I didn't want my husband to be scared to see me with the vent.

The doctor told them it took less time( approximately 4.5 hours)    than they had thought and everything
went well ~~Praise God~~

I am a avid walker and I walked three miles morning and evening most day , when they told me on day 2 that I had to walk 250 feet my thoughts were no big deal , boy oh was I in for a shock
I had to use a walked and the pain was almost unbearable in my chest .  I will have to say that 250 feet whipped this girls but !
  I only had pain medicine the first and second day my doctor said you are one strong woman and I would say no one better mess with you.  that is GOD holding me . 
Looking back over the past few months I know that GOD has carried me most day , gave me the strength I needed for each day, I feel so blessed that he loves me so

I give GOD all Prasie and glory and honor for his healing touch,

My Road to Valve replacement

In September 2018 I found out from a echo I had,
that I needed to have a heart cath right away due to my aortic valve
my cardiologist has been watching for about 5 or 6 years.

I had the heart cath I watched the multi tvs that my
doctor was watching as he performed the heart cath
(not painful at all)

I was then sent back to the recovery area for several hours
I was told that I would be referred to a  Valve Specialist
a International Cardiologist
A few weeks later I saw the Specialist he  did
more test , a stress test( I walked this did good so I thought.)
he then did the TEE which you are put to sleep to
look closer at the valve  all test revealed my aortic valve was severe and my
heart showed under stress

I  had been praying and asking GOD for conformation that this would go well
GOD used this man that did the workup for me before the TEE , we chit chatted as
he did all the paper work , he told me he was not scheduled to come in at 530 am
but was asked ( GOD knew he could us this man who was a christian )
he went on to tell me several things that conformed  what I had been praying for
even down to the Surgeon.

GOD will give you confirmation just ask him.

I Praise God

God's Overwhelming Love

I will start with the afternoon of  April 14 2016, a beautiful sunny day to be outside
I have a huge bush pile that I needed to burn , getting the fire started it wasn't burning the way
I thought it should so i go get our gasoline from the garage (bad mistake) I poured some
on the fire ...puff... the flames shot up and I ran backwards (bad mistake #2 )I fall and immediately I knew my arm or wrist or both were broke.
I go inside and get ice out of the fridge to put on my wrist and calmly tell my husband that he needs to take me to the doctors in another town as I know I have broke my arm ( it looked so deformed I couldn't look at it)
We stopped at our local clinic as my husband thought we should,  they x rayed and said its broke in two places, we then travel to the Orthopedic clinic( did I mention I have no Insurance I lost it some time back ), more x rays then the dr says your wrist is shattered, we can put it back in place however it will not stay without surgery.They did put it back in place
As they try to find a wrist Surgeon for me to see the next day, I stood praying that God
you place me with the one that is best for me , the one you want me to have .
All night I just layed in bed not sleeping but praying and talking to GOD knowing he was hearing my cries. I asked GOD to go before as we traveled back to the surgeons office
I come back the next day to see the surgeon more x rays, yes its still in place . the doctor informed me that it was in place and since I didn't have Insurance  I could try and let it heal without surgery(he tells me surgery is between eight to ten thousand dollars or more), he stepped outside the door and what I heard next  ( every time I think or talk about this tears flow just as now) was this Doctor saying  " I do not want any charges to her all my services are at no cost)
I am overwhelmed with tears when he returns I say " I just heard what you said and all I know to say is you will be blessed for this " his reply was " I am just glad I can help you.(GOD provided)

The Doctor say I want to see you again in ten days we will see if it is still in place and healing.
On our hour or so drive  home I had some calls from different family and friends asking what I was told . I received a call back from one of the ones that I had told my report to  their words were
"he said to tell you what ever you need to get your wrist fixed you have it don't worry about the cost "
(GOD provided)
Ten days later I return more x rays, the Doctor walks in saying your wrist has shifted even more
if you continue to let it heal in this cast you will have little to no use of your hand and wrist, surgery is the only way it will heal he then says " don't worry, my services are at no cost to you " the only thing you will have to pay for is the use of the operating room and the anesthesiologist. (GOD provided)

I will say this GOD will Go before you and make all things possible when you dont know what to do he has the answers and is always a on time GOD

Though the eyes of a child

I hosted a Ornament exchange party this week
I sit and watched this sweet child stand on the tins I had
under the tree and how she moved from one ornament to another
standing on each tin just touching each one

My thoughts were this is Christmas , this picture says is all
though the eyes of a child

Merry Christmas to all may we each  have the  eyes of a child though the coming year
focusing on Christ. with that child like faith

Brown Bag Christmas

This year I had posted on facebook  about Christmas past
and how when we were young the scent of Fruit
filled the air in our little Methodist Church.
My friends spoke of how this doesn't happen anymore
to my surprise today the pastor walks in to my
work with a brown paper bag filled with fruit and candy
how awesome is that .

Apples, Orange, candy and Juicy Fruit gum

My thoughts were actually on the smell or aroma that filled the little church
and how we should be filled with the Holy Spirit and show the juicy fruit

Merry Christmas to all

and lots of cuddles and love 
just look at her so tiny and cute 
all brown except 
the white you see on her sweet little face 
she also has some white on her paws kind of like 
she has on white gloves 

                                                              look at her blue eyes
