Lab techs are vampires

4:30 a.m. and the lab techs have already come and taken 6 vials of blood, they didn’t even offer me cookie and juice like Red Cross.  It only took two sticks to find a vein.

They have been doing their assessments; one at 11 and one at 3:your name, date of birth, year, president, where are you.  Part of me wants to answer with off the wall answers but I have refrained. Nurse came in a bit later as my heart monitor quit working and they were getting no signal.  I assured her I was still alive.  Turned out I just needed a battery change.

I have been having some great conversion with God, one thing about a hospital is you have plenty of time to talk to him.

Great news is I was able to move my pinky.  I even woke up Ron to show him.  It takes a lot of concentration, I stare at it really hard and concentrate..reminds me of the guys who bend spoons.  It is a baby step.

Hope everyone has a blesses Sunday.  My hearts and prayers are with my congregations today.  One as they celebrate the birthday of a beautiful 99 year old and the other as they find out about dear Charlene’s passing.  Will be praying for them both.



I am a wife, mother, and pastor. We moved from Bowling Green, Missouri to Idaho Falls in 2016. I am a native of Eastern Washington state. In 2013 I had 2 strokes in 8 days and this is my journey of faith, family and health. I believe no matter what happens in your life that God can use it for His glory.
