YAY Rita! This is the best news! I am so happy to see the photos of you leaving the clinic and on your way to the Inn. I can’t even begin to know the joy you must be feeling. Ray and I will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers each day as you begin this next phase of your journey. Love and hugs Rita!

Rita, I ran into Eric at Kroger this evening, and we had a nice chat. He was literally smiling from ear to ear as he talked about the day you received your new heart and his plans to fly to Florida to see you on Saturday. You and Rob have certainly done a terrific job raising such a loving, kind and polite young man. He loves you very, very much, my friend!
Still praying and thinking of you often,
Jennifer Bailiff

Praise GOD!! I have missed your smile~ OH how sweet to trust in JESUS.
Today's quote from Jesus Calling:
Rest in my Presence, allowing Our Father to take charge as he directs our course one step at a time! A grateful heart protects us from negative thinking, and thankfulness enables us to see the abundance showered upon us daily. In everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus 1Thess 5:18

Continuing prayers and Praise!

Rita, Our prayers continue for you as you are on my mind all the time. Eric is so excited about how well you are doing. He is keeping us all updated about your status. I feel like I am right there with you. The choir is praying for God's hand to rest on you and for His peace to remain as you continue to heal. Seeing your picture with your huge smile brings joy to me. I am so very thankful for the updates on this website.

Hi Rita!
I have been following all the posts and have been thinking about you a lot! You were such a big part of my life growing up and I loved spending those weeks with you in the summer! It was always so much fun! I am so happy you are doing well and pray you continue! I want you to know how much I love sweet cousin!

Wow! Wow! Wow! A huge PRAISE THE LORD!!!!
Rita, this bring back so many memories of John’s open heart surgery last year! Those chest tubes were MISERABLE. John couldn’t get comfortable until they were out, so I am glad you are finally rid of yours. PLEASE, please, please continue to use your incentive spirometer EVERY HOUR (while awake) .....EVEN IF NO MEDICAL STAFF MEMBER REMINDS YOU!!!! John said “PLEASE TELL HER: the incentive spirometer will be her best friend. “ “Use it competitively & keep trying to get it higher and higher.” He speaks from experience as he did not listen to this advice despite my coaching and ended up needing TWO thoracenteses post operatively. There SHOULD be a flow sheet for this, but there isn't, so I made one for him is THAT important. What are your best numbers on yours? If you don’t have one, ask for it because it is a huge oversight if you don’t have one.
We love you & are rooting for your full recovery! (BTW, John has a heart pillow just like yours!)
Hugs & kisses & prayers from those of us you rarely see, but who love you just the same.

Pam Baker-Redman & John (who would love to meet you some day)
