Latest Update

Praise the Lord! My dad was up walking the hospital hallway tonight! He hadn't had any pain medication since 4 a.m. but tonight he did ask for something due to his arm aching so much. It had swelled during the day and was causing him discomfort, so he was given a Percocet. He was moved out of recovery and into intensive care this afternoon, a day earlier than most patients! Is God a powerful God or what?

My entire family knows its prayer from believers that are helping dad and all of us through this process. Mom and Dad were so blessed reading the encouraging comments I had printed out and taken into the hospital.

We had some fun times while hanging out in the waiting rooms. Here are a few photos to prove it! Click photos to enlarge for better viewing. Enjoy!

Shane with his Grandpa Jack, last Wednesday after the heart attack, the first night in hospital. Oh and notice the guard dog, Chance!

Shane with Grandma Loretta in the waiting room. Mom was actually sleeping in this position. Notice how God supplied a chair that let out into a bed? *Smiles*

Naomy and Josh waiting for their turn to go in and visit Grandpa.

My brother Johnny, THE THINKER!

The boys got a little bored. Wait until you see what they were up to!

Are those Josh Vernoy's feet?

Jungle Mom's son, Josh Daniel with his Uncle John, whom he looks up to very much indeed!

A glove miraculously became a bed buddy for Grandpa! Thanks Josh Daniel!

My hubby and I trying to rest a bit.

Agustin looks so innocent, doesn't he?

I am so glad everything went well. I am sure Grace will be encouraged by the pictures. Thanks so much for showing them. I wished I could have been there at the hospital but God had me right where I belonged.. working and "watching" Shane. Whew! what a hand full I put in a whole 10 hr work day and he never interrupted me at all. I had to stop to see if he needed anything. We had a great day. Hope to do it again (under different circumstances, of course!).
Love ya. Hope you got some rest.

Pam, thanks for sharing. looks like a party and I missed it!

We always made the kids the medical glove balloons in the jungle! And I think Johnny would be batter named , The Stinker!

Pam, I am so glad that your dad is better! I think that the prayers were awesome, but I also see how much family that he had nearby. What a blessing that you all could be there! It's really wonderful!

Praising God for this wonderful news!!


It was fun seeing all the pictures. Hospital are such uncomfortable places. When we need them though they are such a blessing. Take care and everyone get rested and looking to the day we see a picture of your Dad walking aroung. connie from Texas

I'm so glad your dad is doing well!!! We'll continue praying for his quick recovery.

It was fun seeing the pictures. I've spent many an hour in a hospital waiting room, but I don't think I had that much fun! ;)

Big Hugs, Lyndy

The news continues to be encouraging. Looks like everyone did a fine job of trying to be occupied. I gave report in church last night of your daddy and our church rejoiced with you all. We are continuing to pray for him as he recovers. Love you!!
