I know that I expect the interview to go well, but I think that it really did go well. I was able to talk about my stroke, about how the Lord has led me all the way, about the Drs. surprise every time they see me, about prayer and why we should pray, and what happens when things don't work out the way WE think they should. I found the interviewer tobe genuinely nice and easy to work with. The biggest reason for the interview was twofold: first, to tell people that Drs., though they have training and God can use them, don't always know the future. Second, I wanted to thank everyone, especially the people who don't know me, for praying for me during this time.
I am still overwhelmed everytime I read the surgeon's notes. What he said, in a nutshell, is that the surgery is an attempt to save my life, but it will not take away the deficencies in my life. Boy, when he saw me, he was surprised. I give all glory to God, because I fought hard, but He sustained my life so that I could fight another day. There is a balm in Gilead and there is One who hears every prayer and can do above all that we could ask or think.
