Getting There

You are all a great blessing to me...   I am so thankful!
Your many prayers are such a precious gift. 

I get very tired and the pain is still pretty bad.
My operation of a total knee replacement, went well.

My heart is still in Bundle Branch Block, which means the electrical doesn't fire as it should.
This caused problems with my blood pressure, plummeting the diastolic to the 50's.
With Blood pressure there is a high and lower number. Diastolic is best between 70-90.

So, I should be out of hospital and home, however, I have been sent to another hospital.
Where there is a will, there is a way........
I am taken and given exercises every morning. This is so tiring and the pain excruciating.

But... many have it much worse.
I have the love and prayers of so many.
Scar's can be turned into STARS * *
.... and I can still laugh.

  1. I have a left bundle block, too, sweetie. The Medtronix resynchronization pacemaker has given me new life. I was near death when they fixed me up. I am praying for you as I write, my friend.

    I know the knee surgery is not a lot of fun but eventually you'll be up doing the jig! I bumped into a gal at the airport 2 weeks ago who had both done at the same time & she was thrilled with the results.

    Take care, heal quickly ... we miss you.
    Hugs & lots of prayer ...

  2. I am still praying for you! I know you can do it! I hope your heart gets back into rhythm!

  3. I thought about you today and wondered how you are doing. Please know that your bloggy friends are praying for you and HOPE you are pain free soon...very soon!!!

  4. I'm happy to hear the surgery is over and that they are monitoring you. Will continue to pray for your recovery. "Lord please touch CM in a mighty way and give her strength each day. Eliminate pain and speed up her healing Father so that your name may be glorified. Look after Ray through this time also. In Jesus' name I ask all things, amen."

  5. Hi Crystal Mary!!
    It is so good to hear, (now I can't say voice so do I say type?)you type! ;P

    Praying for quick healing all round. Now you would know better than me but I really think you should be drinking lots of fluids.

    Stay strong and rest in Him.

    Praying and praying,

  6. Hi sweet Crystal Mary,
    I let you know that I am still praying for you, for your complete healings and full recovery. I can understand the way you feel. I'll give you my shoulder, if you wish to cry or hold on with me. I'll give you my hand, if you wish to hold it tight. If you need to talk, I'll always listen to you, my sweet dear friend, Crystal Mary. My heart bleeds knowing that you are in such a pain. Can you get some morphine or other pain killers?? I pray that one day this story will be past history, and you'll be out of pain. The Lord has mercy. Dear Lord, Jesus Christ, please, be with my dear friend in every situation and in every hour, be with Crystal Mary, and allow her to heal completely and free her from all pain. We trust in Your unconditional love full of grace. In Jesus'most Almighty and Holy Name, we pray. AMEN.
    The peace of God be with you, Crystal dear.
