Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Harvesting

Harvesting
We have had the joy of fresh tomatoes, peppers, and apples we raised.
We have two apple trees. Last year we got one apple from each of the trees. This their second year we got 10 from each tree. We have eaten all the State Fair apples and Bob just picked the Cortland this morning so we each had one. Next year or maybe the next we will have so many we won't count them. It has been fun. We have had so many fresh tomatoes we can't eat them all fresh I have cooked up a lot and made chili several times. Will make a casserole for supper with some and I have frozen ten so far. We are thankful for them.
We were talking with some friends the other night as we both celebrated our anniversary together. They are farmers and they expect to be in the field harvesting their soy beans in about two weeks and a little later their corn.
Harvesting is fun. I remember Harvest Festival at church in the fall when I was a child. Did any of you celebrate a Harvest Festival?

Thank You

Thank You
On Wednesday I saw the surgeon. He will do the surgery I need. He put me on a hormone treatment to strengthen some tissue before surgery. No date has been set. He said that if surgery were done now the tissue would tear. I will see him again. November 9th. One nervous concern addressed.
This morning my primary care doctor called. He had received the report back on the heart monitor I wore for 24 hours. A very good report. My numbers had not fallen into a danger area while sleeping. My heart had skipped a couple beats, but he said that is not real unusual or of concern. So second concern addressed.
THANK YOU for your prayers.
Today is our 44 th wedding anniversary.

Nervous

Nervous
I'm nervous, now this does not often happen with me. I will see a surgeon tomorrow afternoon. I'm not nervous about seeing him. The reason I'm nervous is because my pulse has been running low along with sometime my blood pressure. My primary doctor is aware of this fact and has been adjusting med to correct it and has had me wear a monitor for 24 hours also. I had a friend who had surgery when his numbers were low and he never came out of being put under. He came through surgery okay, but he just didn't wake up. He was put on machines for a few days, but then everything was pulled. Also my daughter had a surgery somewhat in the same area and had complications. They seem to be solved now, but that is why I'm nervous. If you read this just pray that I will trust God for a good outcome. Thank you for allowing me to share. I know I'm in His arms no matter the outcome.
