Walking already - I think it's nap time

We've made it through a good portion of the grogginess of post-surgery blues and the joy of a liquid lunch - I think I can see a cheeseburger in my wife's future very soon! Unbelievably, the professionals from the hospital's torture - er physical therapy - department came by to take her on a leisurely stroll...

Now it's nap time. I feel a little guilty about being sleepy but getting to bed after midnight and getting up at 3:30 a.m. to get ready and come to the hospital makes for droopy eyes. She is on her side with the leg and knee supported by pillows and the lights are dimmed.

I will endeavor to stand watch without falling asleep. Thinking of that reminds me of Mark 14:37.

Still, I am wondering about autumn in Florida. I've heard of temperatures in the single digits and below zero up north. Here today? Roughly 78 degrees...

The chapel caught my eye on the way back to the room. It seemed a shame not to make use of such a peaceful place - the beauty of the stained glass and the words of Psalm 20 were just what the doctor ordered.

And for a certain author friend, I almost saw a Seabird when I looked at the chapel window the first time. 

Thanks to everyone for their prayers...We really appreciate it!

  1. I checked in before---Well, make that before-before--and didn't see anything and then I forgot. I'm glad that the surgery is over and that Nance is actually on her feet, however painfully and temporarily. Please tell her that I'm praying for her--for you both! And remind her as the phys-ther aka pain-administrators will often do to keep persevering especially through this period of recovery. I hope that you got that nap in!

    Under the Mercy,


Thanks for visiting the Stream. What do you think?
