Surgery's Coming

The surgery postponed from September 24th is now scheduled for Wednesday, October 29th.

Snapshots of the last week:

Jaran told me he felt his baby girl move. He's counting the days. (Delivery date by c-section: December 11th.)

Mom no longer needs oxygen. Her kidneys have been declared "healed." Praise the Lord! They still check her blood sugar on a regular basis. She just needs to exercise and regain strength. We are both dreading the weeks we will be separated because we'll be in different facilities.

I finished line edits for my next book, mystery #2, A String of Murders. (Pub date: March 2009, from Heartsong Presents Mysteries). So I have no writing projects looming while I am in rehab.

I am half a pound away from 45 pounds total weight loss. Another praise!

I am writing blogs to "post" while I am away. One a week for the next three weeks. By then I hope to be home. Don't let my blogs fool you. I'm not really here.

Talk to you again soon.

Wonderful news, Darlene! So glad your mother is doing better. I'm sure you are thrilled to have the line edits done so that isn't hanging over your head. And a big CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss. I know (from experience) how difficult it is, and I'm so impressed at how you've stuck with it. We'll be praying for you, especially tomorrow.

I'll be praying for you tomorrow on your day of surgery. It's also my birthday - so you should have a great day! Glad your mom is doing well. God will take care of you both - so rest easy while you are recuperating.
