For we live by faith, not by sight.

~2 Corinthians 5:9~

John Henson had four heart bypasses yesterday and did well despite other health issues. Thank God for this wonderful report.

Beth Brabham’s knee surgery went well. Pray for her to have a good recovery period.

Cathy Wells goes back to the doctor for her follow up after knee surgery. She said all seems well.

I went to the pain management doctor for a routine visit. I gave my procedure a “10”! Now, I’m waiting for improvement following my fall. I look forward to the day I can give it a “10” too.
