via Daily Prompt: Orange
The word “Orange” is bringing forth wisdom for my well being today. I woke up with a song and a thought sitting very strongly in my heart. I had decisions about care sharing and survivor agenda that I wanted to think through carefully, so this will be an all day experience and event journal entry as I complete the 100 words.
I am remembering my conversation this morning about the value of voices in prayer who come together daily to connect. The revelation in praise and prayer is my new orange.
This is the 21st day since finding ourselves in ICU with the diagnosis of heart/ lung involvement. We sometimes use the word surreal without even knowing the definition. I found these definitions worked for me as I remember the episode which I call “walking in the shadows of death.” It was a “weird dreamlike” situation that we have been able to step through these last 21 days. On this day of new mercies we have declared as in Psalm 73:2, “But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped. Our Real God Reality!

I spent the last few hours in a caregiving situation which prompted me to write a journal note about the trademark of thanksgiving. Almost three weeks ago my husband was admitted to ICU after he had a cardiopulmonary event. It was tense time when a moment seemed like forever. Today I am thankful for the place and people who brought him back to our home. We take for granted the trademark of Thanksgiving. Some think of elaborate dinners, shopping trips and moving quickly to prepare for the Christmas celebrations. I will enjoy thanksgiving starting right now.
Starting my Day 5 of #Spirit40. I am sending thanks to the Myers for helping me in my advocacy and ministering of the #SurviorsandShareCarers. Today when I started my thirty minutes of walking , I felt the urge to write and release my fears into a faith fountain. This beautiful display by Val is my inspiration to keep moving and to give God the glory for the people who give me strength and courage We often have to look into our lives and ask for a Psalm 139 review to make changes. Today is my day of release, review and refresh for #sharecaring.

This is a day of thankfulness as I sit to write of our past twelve days experiences and give kudos to some brave people. On Thursday October 5, 2017, my honeySi and I entered the emergency room as we had been instructed. My husband was informed that he would receive treatment. We received part the blood transfusion and was told we would be moved to a room to complete the treatment. My husband stopped breathing and then we began our encounter with many brave employees working to save his life. This story continues to unfold.
I an sitting in the hospital chapel waiting on the designated prayer session scheduled for 09:30. I have so many things to thank the Lord for and I needed to get it in writing. My husband spent 5 days in ICU and is now preparing to go home
I know this could have been another story because He stopped breathing and was revived. Today is our eighth day and a reset for restoration. Today’s awakening is a blessing which I see as
coming into the love and joy from a storm of chaos. We remain at the cross and the Lord’s grace.
I have been in a most unusual position for three days. We walked into the ER at 2pm at the request of our PCP who was concerned about abnormal labs. My husband received one unit of blood and was sent to a room to finish and be discharged. Around 8pm our world changed when suddenly my husband screamed that he could not breathe.The medical emergency team started treatment and noted that he needed to be transferred to ICU The first nurse we met was Donna whom I believe God placed in position to save my husband’s life. She was my nurse angel. The next nurse who came was Caroline and she continued the wonderful care. This picture is my smile on our 3rd day in ICU. My husband is improving every hour and I am thankful for this deliverance and delightful outcome. I wanted to give them my #InspiredGratitude.
