Miracles do happen

It's hard to believe that BH ( Beloved Husband) has been home from hospital for 2 weeks now and is doing so very well. Regaining strength slowly but steadily. He has even been taking a turn round the garden because we have had such lovely Spring weather.
He wasn't sleeping at all well because of the discomfort and pain of trying to get from lying to sitting and vice versa.
On the very day we had a visit from someone re the possibility of obtaining a grant towards the purchase of an adjustable bed,( we couldn't even begin to afford to buy one) BH's colleague from work visited. He said his disabled friend had been given a new adjustable bed but didn't find it fitted her needs. She had heard about BH and wanted to give the bed to him! Her son came that very night. Dismantled our other bed and installed the adjustable one. Since then BH has had really good sleeps and not been awake at 5.00a.m. through discomfort. Thank-you God.

A week today BH has to return to hospital for a couple of days while everything is checked out. Then he will hopefully be out of the woods and onto the flat. I cannot tell you how much it means to me to know that he is sleeping so much better and in comfort not pain.

(The Practice Nurse tells me I may have shingles but that it definitely will not cause any risk to BH. It's not full blown so hopefully will return from whence it came.)

Hope you don't mind reading all this . It's just that I feel like I'm walking out of clouds into wonderful sunshine and wanted to share the joy.

There aren't very many nice perople out there but in the times that we need one most, they always come out of hiding. I am so glad to hear that things are going so well for you and you husband. God bless you both and I will keep you both in my prayers for a continuous, speedy recovery. You take care of yourself as well so those shingles don't get any worse.

I do believe in miracles. What a gratifying feeling you must have! Just keep on being thankful for the small things as well as the large. When a loved one is experiencing any sort of pain, it pains you more. Have been t here many times. As you, I am so humble when relief comes. What a joy!!

Take care of yourself as he needs you to be there in order to continue. Oh, thanks for sharing. Makes my day!

Yes miracles happen everyday. Such wonderful news about DH I hope and pray that he gets stronger every minute of everyday.

How are you doing with the shingles? That can either be mild or very painful.
