To say that the last 2 weeks were a bit chaotic may be an understatement. I have been to the hospital more times in the last two weeks that I have in the past two years. I am hoping that we steer clear for another two years.

Thankfully Hubby is doing great. He is home and back to work on light duty until next week. They did not have to put in a stent.

I am so thankful and blessed for all of my family and friends and all of the blessings that they have poured out on us through all of this. I have discovered that I have more people that I can rely on than I even imagined. So many people were ready at the drop of a hat to take care of what ever need I/we had at the moment. It didn't matter if it was as simple as getting my kids on/off the bus, taking them for a few hours and getting them dinner, or as complex as having to drag mine along with them to their own appointments. I was never at a loss of having someone there to help me.

The most important act last week though had to be the ones that stopped what they were doing and said a prayer for us, for the doctors, for the whole situation. I can't even begin to express our thankfulness for this. I know of at least 6 churches that were praying for us as well as all of my many friends. Many of whom relied on tweets and facebook updates to know how to pray.

I truly believe in the power of prayer. The first reports we got back from the doctors regarding the condition of hubby's heart were a little scary to us. Once he was transferred to Pittsburgh and they did the heart catherization, the results were so much different.

Some have suggested that the initial readings were false readings. That perhaps he moved or something else went awry. Hubby swears he never moved. I believe that God's hand was working in all of this. I believe that all of those prayers offered up on his behalf changed everything. And for that I am thankful.

You can choose to believe what you want, but I know what my God can do. I love this quote:

"Don't tell God how big your problems is. Tell your problem how big God is." -Owen Orr

Thank you again,
