God bless in the recovery and the days ahead.

It means that I consider my money to belong to God and I see myself as one of the hungry people who needs to get fed with God’s money. If I really have put all my trust in Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then nothing I have is really my own anymore."

good to know you're doing better. I hadn't realized how much time had passed.

The UN says the ebola outbreak must be controlled within 60 days or else the world faces an "unprecedented" situation for which there is no plan.
this is absolutely fantastic as it unites the world into being OUR problem rather than THEIR problem.

Rider, hang in there, it gets better.


I was back to work 3 weeks after a quadruple bypass and cardiac aneurism repair. Everybody is just different in that regard.

Recovery is often difficult, but things will improve. I hope you feel better soon.

Had all four wisdom teeth out on the same day.


I actually scared the oral surgeon because even with two syringes full of anasthetic per tooth I was still coherent enough to actually have a conversation with him.


I actually walked out to my mom's van under my own power (I was told not to drive because everyone assumed I'd be totally out of it), remembered that the pharmacy I was supposed to get my antibiotics from takes a long time to fill orders (it's the pharmacy for the local Army hospital; active duty soldiers come first, and they'll bump people because of it), and asked to go to the mall so that I could get a book to read.


Unfortunately, the pharmacy took so long that day the anasthetic wore off while I was waiting. Not a fun experience.

Rider, thanks for the update. It sounds as if you've really had some challenges with your recovery!
Surgery is never easy to recover from, and I wish you all the best as you progress back to good health.
Hang in there, I'll keep you in my prayers.

Of course the good part in this, if there are any? weight loss, ive gotten down to 336 from 356 because the anibiotics so strong they made me too sick too eat for awhile everything kept coming up but now I eat with lots of pickles and they give me nausea medicine pickles calm a nauseated stomach it helps me anyways and then when i have my tummy tuck Ill lose another 20-30 lbs which will be cool. Also been praying trying to develop a better relationship with God want to be a apart of Christianity when I get back home.So thats a good had a talk with God when I first got here it scared me, I had 103 degree fever infected and coughing vomitting I was a mess so maybe this can be my turn around with God as well...................better relationship with him anyways


 


its interesting iron Ive had a bunch of teeth pulled out but you are brave if you had all 4 pulled out at once you must have a high tolerance for pain!
