British Columbia, Canada
Well there they are, him still with a machine draining fluid from his surgery, and her with pneumonia, swollen feet, and still she managed to send me an update email. They were snowed in, and their neighbours came to dig them out so at least they can get to the doctor for appointments, the nurse can get in to change dressings, and tend to Ray! When she heard that their "snow guy" couldn't come, the neighbours offered to do it, but the gas was empty on the snow blower. The gas can was of course in a shed over a huge 7' snow drift. Rae got her coat on to go get the gas, and thank GOD the neighbour stepped in, and fetched it for her.
When I think of complaining, these two are truly an inspiration. Each day lately is a challenge for them, but they meet it head on, no complaints, and do the best with whatever that day gives them. I have learned so much from them. They always have room in their hearts for everyone else in their own time of need. This was her final comment, with her feet up, she is priceless:
quote:Prayers gratefully still accepted, as these two, as strong as their determination is, both need a little help from their friends.
It's hard to type with my feet up on a chair beside the keyboard. Guess I should just try putting it on my lap, huh?
