Default Damn! You guys are GOOD!!

I'm typing at the moment at my mother's home in N.C. When I arrived here on Sunday night and saw her in the hospital she was so weak, shaking, and confused. She hadn't eaten anything in days. I thought she was not leaving.

She spoke of where and how she wanted to be buried. Where to find her assets and investments, etc. She said she was ready to go.

I spoke words of encouragement to her. Told her of the trips she still needs to take. Of the get togethers she would have with her girlfriends again at her place in Hilton Head, playing bridge, dominoes, etc. just like she loved to do.

Then I read her the posts of all of you who were praying for her. People I had never met and she never knew, even by internet communication. She was flabbergasted.

Well, I want you all to know your prayers work!!! She rebounded Monday and the doctors had no explanation but allowed her to go home. Today, Thursday, she is eating like a horse, taking walks around her condominium plex, doing laundry, fixing meals, etc. And she's not even napping during the day!!!!!

Now the real kicker...................her eyesight is returning!!!!! The doctors said last week she had macular degeneration and there was no help for her. She would continue to lose her eyesight ! ! ! Ah HAH ! They were wrong !

Thank you all so much. You just don't know how much you touched her when I read your posts to her. In fact, she couldn't read them then, but less than a week later she can!

Regards,
Thomas.

The doctors weren't necessarily wrong, Thomas. They simply didn't realize that a power greater than theirs was hard at work (and without their ridiculous fees). We're delighted that Mom Lee is up and about, and (from the sound of it) ready to dance the fandango! We'll continue our prayers on her behalf to that "chief of medicine" in the sky.

Never doubt the power of the Cruisemates Family Prayers! I don't understand it, I don't question it, I just accept it. <G>

Oh Thomas, I am so glad to hear this wonderful news. You have made my day! Please telll your Mom that we'll continue to pray for her. The power of prayer is God's gift. Have a wonderful visit. I know how you feel because the same thing happened to us when Ellis' biopsies and blood tests came back. Doctors can't explain it, but they don't have to because we know and thats all that matters. (((((((((hugs)))))))))))))

Glad to hear it Thomas and Lee! This "family" has always been very comforting to me and I've only met a few of us but hope to meet more in the future.
Maybe our daughters upcoming sophomore year at UNF will be the one where we finally make it to your restaurant!

Way to go Mom Lee!! I too have seen the power of CruiseMates' Prayers, when all of you so kindly sent my mom 75th birthday cards from all over. She was truly touched amd amazed that so many people cared, and she had a few more good weeks that she probably wouldn't have had otherwise.
Thanks for sharing the news with us Thomas,

donna

Hurray Mom Lee! I can't explain it, but with so many prayers and positive thoughts flying around, I'm not surprised at ANYTHING!

Again, she sure is lucky to have a son like you. Give her my best and tell her she remains in my thoughts and prayers.

So happy to hear the good news! Even better, your mom just sent me the numbers of all her bank accounts and where her investments are!

Bet you didn't know about that tidy little account in Switzerland, did you?

P.S. I've changed my e-mail address.
