Title: OUR OWN EARL
Post by: elise on December 01, 2010, 12:11 PM
When it rains it pours!  Our own Earl (Afriend) is in the hospital with a kidney and blood infection.
He is recovering, and expected to go home soon, but it's been a rough time for him.  Please keep
him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

I most certainly will dear Elise. It rains upon the just and the unjust alike...and though we may all get wet...we shall not drown as we stand in the shadow of God's Love and healing promise.

If there is anyone battle ready, it's this old cat. I am convinced that Earl will successfully fight this ailment.

Get better soon, friend.

I thank all of you for your positive thoughts, prayers and well wishes. Its good for the spirit when you know people care.

I'm on the mend, but still have a way to go. I've been stuck, prodded, stripped, xrayed, taken meds, turned in every direction, and cut on enough to last a life time. Three more procedures in the immediate future and one in the spring to go. I wonder if they can give me a bionic brain while they're at it??
Nah.


I'll get back to posting soon. My computer crashed and I lost all my short cuts, so I have to build a data base again.

Thanks again for all the notes.

Just when you think that you have had enough,
Another buzzard circles overhead.
It's true that when the going gets that tough,
The tough get going.  But this once instead
Of telling someone,  "Now's the time to move;
You've heard the bell.  Now get back in the ring!"
I'll tell you you have nothing left to prove.
You've whipped all comers.  May your heart take wing
To soar above this amateur disease
Which thought it had a chance to take you out.
The dope is on the ropes, soon on its knees,
And then a ten count. Yeah, you'll win this bout.
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee,
Earl: Tin Roof Alley Poets' own Ali!


Regards,
Bill

Thanks everyone for the well wises.
Bill, writing get well verses for me is habit forming. Nice verse, but I'm going to try to break this sugery/illnes trend.

I'm feeling more like myself than I have in months. Doc's follow up on the 15th, but right now I feel great. No pain, no meds.
And a bonus...I've gone back to just having a faulty old man memory instead of a illness induced memory. Go figure, I'm braggin' on an old man's memory.


Thanks again everyone. The well wishes makes a body feel good.
I'll be back posting soon.

I have to smile dear daughter, you DID tell me so. Thanks.

That's a very encouraging and warm thought Witt. I'll treasure it.
