From Chapter One – THAT DREADED ‘c’ WORD:
My dear husband,
One horrible Wednesday morning I picked up to phone to hear a doctor tell me, “Your husband is seriously ill.I have to operate, but I don’t expect him to come off the table alive.If you want to see him you have to be here within 1/2 hour.”
I cried. We had plans. We wanted to travel. We wanted to grow old together. I didn’t know what to do.
I was upset and mad at the doctor for being so uncaring. My anger grew when I found out he had told you that you were not going to live through the surgery.
How could he be so unfeeling? People told me he wanted to be honest; he wanted to let me know how serious the situation was; that he didn’t want to mislead me. It was cruel and, I believe, unnecessary. He could have worded it better; He didn’t have to terrify me.
Neither of us knew what the future held, but we did know that the doctor was not ultimately in charge, God was.There was a lot of prayer going up for you that day.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of JUzDIzRTS first author event. It’s exciting and I’m pleased to promote my first non-fiction book and spread the story of our experience of faith, hope and love. I’m hoping for a great turnout and to meet lots of new friends.”
