I am recovering, thanks be to the good Lord. I was vertical more than horizontal today and that's when I know for certain I'm mending. A new friend from church called yesterday to check on me and said "You seem to get sick so quickly" ... she has no idea, no one does unless they deal with on-going lung problems, just how quickly you can become gravely ill. I found myself seriously dealing with thoughts of death the past few days ... we have no promise of tomorrow, or the next hour for that matter. The older I get the more I realize how close I am to leaving here. I don't mean to sound morose, but perhaps it's good to have these thoughts from time to time. To remember we are mortal beings who have an immortal spirit and that when we do leave here, IF we have been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb, we will go Home, to die no more.

I must admit I'm not quite ready to go yet. Things I'd like to do. People to love and care for.

Thank you for praying for me. I've again read all your posts and made sure you're all alright too.
My love to each of you.
