You've said a mouthful here Miss Deborah. SOmetimes our situations are not about us, but other people. If your husband didn't have this situation, you would not have had the opportunity to pray with the lady in the waiting room. God ALWAYS turns EVERYTHING the devil brings for evil for the glory of the Lord. Still praying...


Do not fight FOR victory, but fight FROM THE PLACE of victory. Jesus has ALREADY won the battle!

Yes, thank you DS and Cholette! I very much believe the doctors we were seeing that were 4 hours away--well they were assignment, not vice versa. When it became clear they had exhausted all their treatment options, particularly one doctor and his entire staff gathered around us and thanked us for how we had treated THEM. I was a little astounded.

The trip 14 hours away was to encourage an Israeli saleswoman and also to minister to my husband's sister.

The local doctor now--we are praying for his father who is very ill.


When my husband first got hurt I got that verse in James that tells us to count it all joy when we fall into various trials. I didn't want that to be my verse. I wanted it to be something like "I am the God that healeth thee."

Do I believe the Lord could reach down right now and heal my husband as he lies in his hospital bed? ABSOLUTELY!!!!! Yet so far in this trial I know my heart and my husband's heart have been changed for the better. I know I can testify that God provides--there have been times when I've fretted over bills, only to see a financial miracle the next day or so. Perfect faith, complete, lacking nothing, like James says--that's what God is after in me.

I know I have stumbled in this trial, but God has helped me up every time and I know I owe much of the victories I've had to the prayers others have prayed.

A very famous basketball coach taught his players to always acknowledge those who assisted--so if a player made a basket because someone else had passed the ball to him, that player had to at least nod to his teammate. The message was, "You helped me. I could have not done that without you." So to everyone who is reading this, to everyone who has prayed, I want to nod to you and celebrate your role in what I know is going to be a great victory.

A little update here, 11 months later...the wound is slowly healing!!!! The keys have been to take out the traumatized tissue that was around the wound (that's what the last surgery was all about) and also to quit getting the wound wet in the shower like one doctor advised.

Do you guys know e coli resides in even the cleanest water pipes? For us, our well water was contaminated. My husband has had to fight a MRSA infection (an antibiotic-resistant strain) and even at one point a bacteria found in gangrene!!!! Yikes!!!!!! We have had to get an entirely new source of water.

This has indeed been a hard bloody battle. Once this wound heals, then we need to find a doctor who will take the plates and screws out of my husband's foot.

Sometimes it's Christians who have been the most judgmental and least supportive in this battle. I can almost hear them thinking, oh well, if you had faith like ME, you wouldn't be battling this. You guys must be hiding some grievous SIN!!!!! So I'm feeling some days a little like Job, but God has been a faithful friend through it all, giving us the grace we need.

Wow!!! What a trial to endure!! You are one strong woman! I am so happy things are progressing and getting better! Will continue to pray in agreement with you until the full healing manifests. I will also be praying for provision and favor to get a whole new clean and healthy water source. Its really a shame that other christians have been this way with you. I have had similar experiences as well, with judgemental christians. Its very hard, when brothers and sisters who are suppose to love, support, and lift us up end up judging and criticizing instead. I just know God will be so faithful in the end to vindicate you. He will bless you in the presence of your enemies.

Looking forward to a full healing, and Gods awesome provision for you guys. Thanks for updating us, and look forward to hearing more praise reports of Gods faithfulness. :hooray:

The wound is continuing to shrink, little by little, but conversing with my husband tonight, it's clear to me his workaholic attitude has not changed. I guess I thought after a year of me intensely nursing him, my husband's priorities would have shifted, but I don't think they have. I know my year has not been wasted because I've offered up my service as service as unto the Lord, but I think this has been one of the darkest nights of this journey.

I'm so happy that he is getting better Deborah!!! I will be praying about his working habits too. We sure don't want to see him work himself into something similar to this again. You are a saint!! He is a very blessed husband to have a wonderful wife as you to take care of him during this time. As you stated above about you doing these things as a service unto the Lord, I really think the Lord is pleased with your service!!! I think He is smiling down on you stating, 'Well done my faithful one, well done!!!'

This pesky ulcer on my husband's foot was almost healed--it had filled in from the bottom and all the doctors who saw it this May agreed it was almost healed, despite the fact it was still growing funky bacteria according to their cultures. THEN this last Tuesday the doctor told us he wants to do surgery on it yet AGAIN because of the drainage it's having!!!!!! The surgery is tomorrow.

On a positive note, I catch my husband reading the Word pretty much every night now and I can tell his heart is softening.
