We are slowly making progress – inch by inch. Still on morphine, still in much pain, beginning to face what lies ahead of us.

What helps our attitude is Skyping with the grandchildren

It also helps to make a trip down the hall in a wheelchair –

but it is exhausting.



  1. So glad the surgery went well. Mike and I both have you in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Hi Ruthe,

    I really feel for u and what u r going through. My break wasn’t nearly as bad, but I can empathize with u. While ‘this, too, shall pass’, I always like to add ‘now would b good’. Pls know that, if there is anything u need, all u have to do is call or email. I do not wish to b a nuisance, only a prayer warrior on ur behalf. I pray for pain-free days and quick recovery. May u feel His healing power 24/7. Blessings, Penny

  3. Hi Sam and Ruthe!
    Wow…a lot happened when I was in Destin apparently!!! So sorry to hear of your fall, broken femur, surgery, pain etc…whew!! God bless you!!! I have been praying hard since the moment I was made aware of your situation..I was delighted to see the body of Christ at work so abundantly in our church..(makes me so greatful to be a part of The Orchard:)! I will be bringing you a meal families favorite…my homemade Italian Meat Pie. I saw the comments about cookies…do you like chocolate pie too? If not, I will bring peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies! Another thought…when I signed on to the blog I saw an elephant dancing right above Ruthes head…coincidence? I don’t think so!!! If that elephant can be taught to dance..we can get Ruthe up and walking again!!! I would love to help with that!! I LOVE the pt’s at Baptist rehab!! Would love to take Ruthe to her sessions and sit with her and help in any way!! Please let me know how I can be of service!!!
    Blessings and love to you both!
