MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN!

Praise the Lord!  When the test was done today, the cath was inserted into Jim's artery, but couldn't go through.  It couldn't go through because the artery is totally clogged, and branch arteries had already formed to carry blood.  The aneurysm has disappeared on its own.  The doctor's words were, "Remarkable."  My words are "Miracle."  He needed no treatment and is being sent home.  He was told to have another MRI in 6 months in San Diego as a followup procedure.  No one has an answer for Jim's headaches, but the consensus of the Barrow neurosurgeons is that the headaches will dissipate in time. 

Many, many thanks to all of you who prayed.  Your prayers, and ours, were heard.  The answer was yes.

We're in the process of changing our flights.  Jim asked us to spend a few days in San Diego with him.  We should be back in New Bern by the end of this week or early next week, depending on what we can work out with airlines and hotels.  I'll try to find something interesting to report on while I'm out west.

Judy, I only recently stumbled across your blog, but I quickly added it to my bookmarks and have been reading both your delicious recipes and your stories of your family and Jim's health. I did say a quick prayer for you when I first read about Jim's surgery, and I feel so blessed to hear the news of your miracle. God truly is faithful and answers our prayers in amazing ways! Bless you!
