    Smile A little good news

    For those of you familiar with my wife and her battles with MS. She has eaten her first real food meal in two years! Nobody was sure if her intestines would ever work again but for now they are. She's mighty sick and tired of liquids! She's not ready for that steak dinner yet but maybe in a month or two, who knows.

    She is still mute but then she is still walking so we'll take what we can get. Appreciate everyones past prayers....

    Glad to hear the news. Be thankful in all things. Sometimes we tend to overlook the small things in life, yet, sometimes they are the most important. Didn't know about her problem, but will say a prayer for more healing. I have myasthenia gravis, and heart issues as well. Just take each day as they come and be glad when you wake up on the green side of the grass. Be thankful for each day you can share together. God bless the both of you, and may He keep you strong.

    That is good news. I guess we all need to be thankful for some of the little blessings we get.

    Great news, ELCruiser. I hope the good news keeps coming for her, and you. I'm betting she is enjoying solid food. I went 9 days without food after my surgery and once they let me start eating again, I just couldn't get enough. Good luck to you both and keep us informed!
