Scott’s Surgery Date

Dis b kumming frum Altosinger:

So, all things being equal, Scott goes in Tuesday morning the 28th for the latest round of tumor removal. They have it listed as inpatient this time; that’s okay, coz they will take care of him and i will get a couple nights of uninterrupted sleep! For those of you familiar with Thousand Oaks and its environs, it is in the Conejo (kuh-nay-ho)Valley, and when we lived down there, there was a nasty bug that went around–not the flu, not a cold, and you coughed for what felt like years even after the rest of it went away. The doctors down there called it the Conejo Crud. And that is what i have had–but since we are up here and not down there, we have dubbed it the Yakima Yuck. Close enough, and i am looking forward to the respite.

Anyway, thank all of you for your prayers—please crank them up again, okay? One does get a little weary—which indicates that i have not been spending enough time–or enough focus, anyway–on the LORD. “They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” I do appreciate you all! GOD bless you exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think!
Love you bunches! –janey

  1. GLOW fur scott, ob course, and fur you to get some respite! (um, cud you stop off at some othfur town, a liddle out ob da way, and gibe dem da flu? jest tinking…..)

  2. “Strengthen your servant Scott, O God, to do what he has to do and bear what he has to bear; that, accepting your healing gifts through the skill of surgeons and nurses, he may be restored with a thankful heart…”

    Many prayers from us, dear one, for both of you!

    • I love the prayers you are using—i know they’re from The Book of Common Prayer. Which version and what year? There are so many wonderful prayers that were originally prayed from a full heart and under GOD’s inspiration that they still resonate, sometimes hundreds of years later. My favorite was one we sang in high school as a prayer response:
      “Almighty God, unto Whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from Whom no secrets are hid, cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Then the Amen, which stretched out some, and the soprano part was really a little high for untrained teenage girl voice, but was still a thing of beauty. When i’m kind of befuddled, that prayer can help me straighten out in a hip and a hurry! Thank you, beloved. This is a big help!
      Love you lotses! —janey

      • From the ’79 American BCP…

        The one you quoted is the opening collect for a Rite II Eucharist in that prayer book.

        This is another one I use when I’m feeling overwhelmed:

        “This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.

        Hugs, prayers, and beeeeeeeeeeeeemz to you and Scott!

  3. Restful and healing thoughts beamed to the Northeast from mighty meeting of the Waters, to Janey and Scott!
    About halfway between us, in the Rockies, my Uncle Jamey is also going under the knife on Feb. 28th, for initial cancer surgery, and they [and we all] are hoping they can get the whole tumor before starting chemo. My cousin is flying halfway around the world to be with her folks at this nerving-wracking time.
    We pray that the 28th will be a good day for all families involved! {{{{{Janey and Scott}}}}}

      • Nupdayte: Scott has come down with the crud, and his lungs are in no condition to be put under. I will contact doctor and hospital tomorrow (and see about getting him into the doctor for a visit on this front); bulletins as they break!

  4. {{{{{Janey and Scott}}}}}
    When you have a chance, check out Romans 5:3 – 5 (KJV): Not only so, but also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
    Beemz, prayers, hugz nd schmooz to you Janey!!!
