Have you not heard???

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Jesus said,
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Oh, Praise be to GOD !

I underwent a 3 hour upper G.I. and swallow study/x-ray yesterday, which showed that there was NO obstruction anywhere, and then my surgeon's assistant removed my feeding tube. 

With her scope, she could see that my remaining good vocal cord is already compensating almost fully for the 'dead' one !  Good reports everywhere. 

The surgeon said that he didn't know what could be causing so much acid reflux, but that maybe now that the tube is out, it would improve.  Well, IT HAS !   I slept so much better last night, WITHOUT the saliva seeping down my esophagus and airway !  

And, right now, I'm enjoying a bowl of chicken and rice soup, filled with crumbled crackers, and it is going down SO EASILY !    I am just flabbergasted !  (Forgive me, Lord, I should not be amazed by your mercy and grace at this point, but I am still humbled by it !)

2014 is going to be a FANTASTIC year !


  1. Hi Dolly, What good news you shared! How refreshing to hear of the blessings and care of the Lord played out as he protects, defends and cares for his own. I'm glad for you that the news is all good! Psalm 59 is rich with the fact that God never leaves us nor forsakes us! May the Lord bless you & yours richly now and in the New Year that is upon us....

  2. HuzzaH. What a way to celebrate 2014!

  3. "For the Lord IS good, His love is everlasting, and His mercy endures forever." Psalm 100:5
    You look great, so glad to hear this report!
