Dear Friends, I am typing this from our apartment in Houston. To my surprise and delight, my docs discharged me from trhe hospital today. They told me yesterday that their intent was to discharge me today, but I did not want to post until it actually happened, since I am still fighting a sinus infection - I thought it was too good to be true. The above pic was taken the moment that they disconnected my IV line - which had been connected for 3 weeks, meaning that I could not move anywhere without dragging along my IV pole. It's a great feeling to be 'untethered' after all that time. My parents arrived yesterday from Illinois - we had chinese food in the patient lounge last night. They will be here until Saturday, then spend a couple of weeks visiting friends in the state, and then come back through Houston before heading back north.
|Leaving the Hospital today at 1:30 PM|
As I make this transition and reflect on the path that I have walked over the past many months, I look back on many trials and triumphs, and I know there will be many more of each ahead. I am eternally grateful for the many people who have walked with me, encouraged me, prayed for me, shared my story with others who are now praying, and all who have helped love me through. More than anything though, as I look back and forward, I am grateful that I have walked with Jesus all the way - trusting Him in bad news and good, tough days and joyous days. So if you're still with me, I wanted to share this song with you. It's an old hymn, written by Fanny Crosby (died 1913) that Rich Mullins rearranged and performed - "All the Way My Savior Leads Me". God Bless you. Dan
