Thankful Thursday On Friday
What am I feeling thankful for this week? My husband's heartbeat, it is a beautiful, precious thing. His heart stopped beating this week for twenty seconds, which to me, seemed like twenty years. We had to immediately get to the hospital, where they already had him a room waiting. That was Tuesday evening, on Wednesday afternoon, they took him to the operating room, where they placed a pacemaker inside his chest. As I kissed him, and walked away, so they could take him into the operating room, I immediately went to the restroom, and began to cry like a baby. I prayed, and prayed, until they brought him into recovery. In my mind, a tape recorder was playing, saying over and over: Eddie"s heart stopped, Eddie"s heart stopped. I could have lost him. No more us, just me. I truly felt like my heart was going to stop. Father, thank You for saving Eddie, and bringing him through this. Please continue to watch over him.
