System working

Hi everyone. I feel as if I've emerged from the pit. Late last night my digestive system showed that it has figured out its new route. Thanks for your prayers for this. The last major hurdle this week has thus been cleared. Now things are geared towards getting out of here. Yesterday they disconnected the morphine and toradal and replaced them with a less potent pain killer. They also took me off the supplemental oxygen. Today I had my first shower and first meal - some apple sauce. Tonight I had some eggs and a piece of bacon - my first real food for over a week. I'm still in pain and feeling lousy, but I am in a great mood. I'm now going to be weaned off the pain med and continue to see if my body can handle solid foods. They think I may be out of here by week's end. I hope all continues to go well so that I can leave. Christine is moving into the Rotary House for the next two nights so that she can get some much needed rest. Thanks everyone for your prayers this week. I am deeply thankful to the Lord tonight.

Greg, you said "I'm still in pain and feeling lousy, but I am in a great mood." What a testament to God's grace. Hope your mood remains anchored in Him!!
