What a surprise to go from such an upbeat report last Thursday to more hospital adventures. Skip gave a great overview of the changes that occurred following my last blog. Today I am still in the hospital feeling a little better but still in pain. Heather and the boys returned from Prosser today so I got to hear about the wedding. It sounds like I missed a great wedding. The only challenge I would have had was the length of the service and the cold weather. I am so grateful that I was here when the relapse occurred and not in Prosser. Many of you have sent me e-mails telling me you liked the video blog so I decided to send you another one from here in the hospital.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers- God is Good, All the Time, God is Good!

    This video makes the split of body and Spirit so obvious to us, that your Spirit is so overwhelming !! Praise God…using your body as a vessel to convey message(s) to all who are in contact with you, much like that Pentacost scene from Act 2 !!! The warning beeps also brings home to your hospital bed surroundings…..obviously your body is fighting to regain comfort and strength, at the same time, your Spirit is so high and amazing; that the only message is : All is well and according to His plan for the good of all……
    we will continue to pray, of course and will what the Father’s will for you…and we all know what that means, right ????
    His Yoke is easy and His burden is light……
    through you , we are witnessing it……

    A prayer for you, my friend:

    Dear Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
    I come before You with gratitude for my friend Don. I thank You that his spirit is so strong. I ask that You would heal him, that You would deliver him from the cancer, and that You would bring him into complete remission. I ask that You would continue to give Don a strong and clear sense of Your loving care for him and for his family as they wage this war against those renegade cells. AMEN

    As you have seen so many times, God has a purpose in all these details and apparent setbacks.

    It’s great to see your face and hear your voice–the video blog was a fabulous idea. And the bonus is to see all that high-tec junk in the room. You must be in your element with all those screens, gauges and buttons.

    Hi Don,

    Sorry to hear you spent Father’s Day in the hospital. I’m impressed with your website – the video is neat. Matthew is having a great baseball season – hit one out of the park last week. Hope you recover quickly and can go home soon. My thoughts are with you.
