Stronger Every Day

Posted by Picasa

Yes, I had a long talk on the phone today to my sister-in-law who underwent open-heart surgery on 4 March. Edna has had a few setbacks since the operation and, although she came home for a few days, she has been back in hospital on 3 occasions, the last time for nearly 3 weeks. During that time she also had a heart pacemaker implanted.

It was wonderful to hear her speaking so clearly and strongly today, something she has not been able to do for at least a year. She says that although she is still taking things slowly, she feels better and stronger than she has for several years. Edna and Geoffrey, and all the family, are delighted with her progress now and look forward to her being able to spend more time doing all the things she used to enjoy doing before her illness.

Once again, I thank you all most sincerely for your prayers and good wishes. We all truly appreciated them.
