Thanks for the update, Phil. It must be rough to deal with Erika when she is having so much trouble remembering and can't understand why she can't leave yet. It sounds like you are remaining strong, in spite of the issues you are having. I hope this entire ordeal helps make your relationship even stronger. The Lord does move in mysterious ways.

 

Our prayers are with you both.

hi all, brenda and myself try and get out to check up on erika at least every other day with trips up to the hospital. it is so hard to a good friend lying in bed and knowing that there is nothing you can do to take the pain away all we can do is be there to try and make her feel better, if it is this hard for me and mywife i can imanage how hard it is on phil.... i talk to phil aleast onece a day to check up on him to see if there is anything he needs. but i know all the comments from all of you have realy made him see how many friends he has out there and i thank you all for making my best friend / brother try to feel better :eyeroll: brian & brenda reinhart

well they finally have her surgery for her elbow set up for tomorrow at 8:30am which is 08/06/08 my daughters BD they took my surgical wrappings off my right hand and replaced it with a cast to stay on for 6 to 8 weeks I did not think it would be that long it scares me I am asking for prayers not only for healing but for finance's for this extended period .

 

In the surgery they will be putting a plate in her elbow with a couple screws if it does not bother her it can stay in permanently otherwise they can take it out later after it all heals

 

Just to let you guys know I think you guys are the greatest not only all the prayers and support sent by you guys the money is a blessing also I in no way though I would be down this long.

 

thanks again

Well they cancelled her surgery again her sodium dropped during the night I wish they could get this done because I think I can have her moved to Elkhart hospital after they do the surgery south bend I was told is a 70 mil round trip not 50 like I originally thought I can't drive my self yet so I have to rely on family ,friends .and the pastor and they won't accept any $ for gas I just hope they let me repay them somehow And when I get better my house will be open for anybody touring through my neck of the woods I don't have much but its comfortable and I would like to take you out for dinner or something I would like to meet all the ANGELS that ride WINGS I feel truly blessed to be a small part of such good group of people

 

every night I pray fro Erika and all my new and precious friends that I have found in my life I pray that your are blessed every day because you make me feel the same

Thanks for the update, Phil. It always semms like in times like this, nothing moves as quickly as we would like. Hang tough. It will be easier soon, I hope. Once you are both home, that's when the tension and pressures can back off a bit.

Phil... it's a pay it forward thing...

 

Accept what is coming your way from friends.. this is what people should be like and we need to become more like.

 

OK... Pastor Rich here..

 

In the Bible Christ tells us to take care of the sick, the elderly, those in need, and the poor.

 

This is what we should do and when we need this help accept it as Christ doing it for us.

 

When the time come we will be able to do it for others. Those who need it. Pay it Forward.

 

What we do for others we should never expect anything in return. The nice thing about it is. It will return someday when we most need it.

 

Phil Don't worry about what others are doing for you. Just take comfort in the idea that you have friends who care.

 

God Speed good friend.. our prayers are still there for you and your family....
