Crisis over!

Folks, the last few days have been a bit of a blur. Last Thursday I was out shopping with my daughter (Mary). I had a friend coming to collect a parcel and called Paul to make sure he'd be home. He was driving and I just heard him groaning and saying 'Help me help.!' I started to say 'where are you...I'm not home,' when the phone cut. A short while later Joseph(son ) called to say could I come back home as Christian (other son) had called for an ambulance. I rushed home to find him writhing in pain in the back of the ambulance. I followed them to Watford General. After hours of tests and examinations, one surgeon decided to operate. It turns out he had a perforated appendix. Thank God for that surgeon who came at the end. They were going to do a scan, but the dept was closed so they suggested waiting till the next day and schedule him for a scan to check for gall stones. Precious time would have been wasted but for that God -sent surgeon who made the decision based on gut instinct(forgive the pun). So he's had the Op and was sent home after 3 days on his insistence!
Now he's recovering. He can't eat anything except 1 tsp yoghurt at a time, and sips of water and feeling quite weak. He's done a deep appraisal of his life and re-arranged ALL his priorities. For that I praise God. Seeing the suffering masses in the A&E is a real eye-opener. We have a lot to be thankful for. I'm looking forward to Christmas more than ever before, because I'll be celebrating my Saviour JESUS to whom belongs escapes from death. A big Thank you to all my friends who prayed and supported me. You are wonderful. Please continue to pray with Thanksgiving that God will speed recovery and also provide for us. Paul is self-employed and when he's down no income comes in. But God is our provider and he has never let us down and never will.
My hair has been totally neglected as a result of this crisis. I haven't even washed it for 2 weeks and it's in dire need of a wash.
Till next time..Merry Christmas y'all. God is GOOD!!!

Hi honey, I've been trying to call and text you on a number I now know to be out of order!! Anyway, just want you to know that I've been thinking of you and you've been in my prayers. I had a feeling that God has a very good reason for putting Paul flat on his back and I'm believing for miracles. I hope we're able to get together before Christmas.
Take care and God bless
