Dearest MartieSis~

Today the garden rejoices with glee
in the miracle of His gift to thee
We, in quiet meditate,
thank Him for every breath you take~

So much love within these pages for you, dearest friend~

Prayers continuing for as long as it takes to see you back here~
Praise and thanks with each passing moment to Him~

*Huglets*

Martie,
How can you not be alright with so much love surrounding you. Just look at this thread. It proves how much you are loved and admired and how much you are respected as a poet. As for me, there is no measure to quantify my esteem for your personal attributes as well as your talents. My prayers are with you always
I'm off to Disneyworld and will check in later
Love you
Liz

Hi Martie:  Just wanted to say hello and let you know I am thinking about you and continuing to say prayers. Marge's beautiful floral pictures have to raise your spirits, as they do mine!

Love

It's a sun-gilded late afternoon here on the sourthern Oregon coast.  People have been enjoying the warmth all day. I've been inside most of the day cleaning clams,  but I am thinking how great it is that you are doing so well. Just had to send you a hug and some TLC before getting off line.  

Love,
Klassy

Can anyone stand some better news?



One of our poets contacted me today, asking if I had heard any more.  I was pretty sure that being this was a Day of Rest, Martie probably needed some.  So I was overjoyed when Taylor called moments ago.

Some highlights of this last week have culminated to allow us to rejoice in this message!

Martie is out of ICU.  She has been transferred to a private room.  [Transmission was breaking up a bit - I did not get a room number, but I can later...]

First of all, the four plus hour surgery was only 2.5 hours.  There was no need for transfusion as had been thought there might be need for...something tells me great powers were at work...but that is just my own interpretation of things.

Here's the better news.  Martie's HUMOR is back...her Thought Processes are much CLEARER...there is no longer any sign, let alone hint, of slurring speech.  

The doctors are speculating that she will be discharged as early as Wednesday...possibly Thursday.  They will plan for some home health care, and Taylor is calling his boss to get back into the work schedule.

Taylor is overjoyed.  I don't think he's doing the happy dance alone...but I won't put up that dancing baby...

Our Martie will be home soon folks.  Go ahead and flood her with cards...you've got the snail mail address from a few posts ago...or make her own postman smile and send them to her at her home.  

Or just leave links, love and notes here...I have a feeling this will become, for Martie, a "keeper" of a thread.

I wish I could thank all of you in person.  I know in my bones that this new lease on life will bring Martie's muse back...

I know it in my soul!



Thank you All!

Thank you for the update, Kairlea! And, the good news. Martie, I am so glad you will be able to go home soon, and that you are doing much better than the doctors thought you would. I know you are.

Dear sweet Martie,

I know that you will be overwhelmed with
all that you will find from your "Family
of Friends".  I am most pleased to know
that all is going well for you..and I look
forward to seeing you back with us again...

Taylor,  I prayed for you during your time
of need.  I prayed again for this wonderful
lady that you love,  that has become so dear
to us over time...

Please always remember where we are...and
that we care so very much for you, Martie,
your son's and grands....

Hi Martie!
You rest and get better okay?
I just hope any snail mail to the hospital
will somehow get passed on to you at home.

Perhaps Taylor can check that out.

Love you...miss you,
Tender hugs, Nancy

I'm so pleased to have returned home to find the good news of your recovery here.  May you go from strength to strength in double quick time and come bouncing back soon.  Many thoughts, prayers, and hearts, have been (and are still) with you and tucked away in the corner you will surely find mine.  
Hugs and Love

Karilea...i have been watching this thread through the days of Martie's operation all the way up to now...the love we all have and send to Martie is unique...thank you for keeping us all informed...

Martie we all look forward to the future days of your brilliant poetry..the pictures of such vivid flowers that accompany your poems and most of all for your caring soul..that adds to the family of poets here at pip and connects all of us together to our one soul...one heart...and the big love we have for you and all poets at passions in poetry...may you have a speedy recovery...and may God keep you within his light of love..

Goldenrose.

To thank God
in numbers of two
Like sunshine upon a tree
this tree of beauty, Martha's tree

Not fruit too rich
its taste and flavour
just right
Her heart, her warmth,
her kind to give


Perhaps I will save these words and write in adding to this later,
to be grateful to know two wonderful being, two wonderful woman, Martie and Karilea.

After all this was what prayer was for
and those blessings received all in being true
This it thank in God,
freedom of worship lived

a poet who cares

We are all soooooo blessed at the good news !
MartieSis ... love ... soooooo much love surrounds you and Taylor~

And as a 'side-note' ... because of this 'keeper' thread .... I was able to see that Elizabeth Santos was heading for Disney World this Wednesday, and will be here a week ... I emailed her ... and we will be making plans to get together, as Disney is only a hop, skip and a jump from my home ... Bill and I will drive over and meet Lizzy on whatever day she chooses !!!

Blessings abound !

Continue your progress sweet Sis ...
prayer vigil continues~

Martie called this afternoon, just to prove to me that she could giggle!  Now, the docs are watching her carefully because she does have a small fever, and they’re chasing that bug down to see where it is residing.  It could well be a touch of pneumonia, which is common, but I’m sure once they track it down, shoot it with some antibiotics, everything will once again get on track.

Keep bringing those jokes and such in here, poets…Martie is really looking forward to getting home and having something good to read.

But with poets like you, that’s a snap!

Fantastic news!  Let's hope that fever is already gone or at least on it's way out.

Let's have a party
To celebrate Martie
When she comes home
For the mercy God's shown

We pray for healing
'Til she's feeling
Once again
As great as she has
aways been

I have tears in my eyes, a mixture of sadness and relief, after going through this incredibly love-filled thread.

Dear ((((((((Martie))))))) I send you all my love and my prayers are with you for a perfect recovery.

Poets do have warm hearts, it shows here! This love is rooted in your own beauty, dear Martie. You are quite special to me too.

Love and hugs.

Dear Martie,  I was laughing through my tears reading the updates from Sunshine.  I share them with BonnieQ on All Poetry, because she has a prayer circle there for you, as well.  She understands what you have gone through first hand!       We are both so delighted at your progress.  You remain in our prayers.  Hugs.

much love,
Karen
