Update on Jay our friend who had the stroke.

Girly Comments & Graphics

We got 6 inches of snow in the night and this morning! This is the most snow we have had so far this year. Our next door neighbor and his brothers came over and shoveled our steps while my neighbor brought over his snow blower to use on the drive way. This was a blessing.

I have an update on Jay who I asked for prayer not to long ago. He had a massive stroke about two weeks ago. Even the first of this week he had some issue that were making everyone think things were not going well. I think on Wednesday or Thursday they moved him to the Physical Therapy hospital and he was able to walk around the room with a walker and do some other things that made the physical therapist pleased. When Jay's wife Brenda came to see him that night he said, "I am going home in two days!" All of his family caution him and said don't get ahead of your self. The Doctors have said you will probably be in this place for about 3 months and won't be able to work for a year. He said "No, I will be able to go home in a couple of days!! When the neurolist came in to see him later, He said, "Jay, if you can walk with out a cane, walker, or crutches and take a shower or bath all by your self you can go home tomorrow."
Well the next morning the family got a phone call from the hospital and they said " He DID it"!! The Doctor said he can go home! He can return several times a week for therapy!! WOW! Thanks for your prayers!! He says he won't be off work for a year either!!

When I opened my E-mail this morning I had this beautiful button/icon from Denise!! Isn't it pretty!!! Thanks Denise!! I have a small one on my side bar. Mary taught me how to make them smaller!! Thanks Mary!! So if you would like this,Please feel!!

Wonders will never cease!!! That is great news about Jay. And I hope he continues to recover.

Ewwwwwwwwww, more snow. I'm hopping blogs this morning and so many are posting snow scenes. I LOVE where I live. We have had a cold front move in, but no wet!! LOL

Of course, our hurricane season will change THAT.

Hope you're having a terrific weekend Carolyn.

It's about time you get the snow I sent you! hehe We have so much here, I wanted to share:-) Glad you have good neighbours who help out like that!!

Such wonderful news about your friend Jay! Seems he's determined to get better and with that kind of attitude, I'm sure he will:-) Prayers continue for him.

Such a lovely button you received from Denise...thank you for passing it on to all of us:-) Love you! xoxo


God is so awesome!

Blessings friend!

I'm glad that Jay is doing so well. Attitude is a lot of the healing process, so I think he's going to do fine.

I'm hoping we don't get anymore snow but that is probably asking for too much. March came in like a lion here, so hopefully will go out like a lamb. I am looking forward to spring.
