Kelly’s Observations

November 25, 2010

Last night Kelly visited with Mark in Cardiac ICU. It was a window of time when the pain was managed and he probably felt better just having his daughter there. She wrote me “He’s doing his breathing exercised now. Dad’s making nurses laugh and preaching to them. He is complaining about the lack of veggies already and demanding yogurt instead of jello.”

When I called the nurses station they admitted that it took a while for them to get his pain under control. They said it is a very painful surgery so he is finally getting some relief.

Mark was basically awake all night. He was sitting up for an hour again so they gave him the phone. While they made the transfer I could here his voice telling someone where our church was located and how much they would enjoy the worship.

He gave me a list of things to bring him. He was able to have some prayer time this morning and felt like the Lord reassured him that he was going to be healed. Now he just has a lot of hard work ahead. He walked a little bit and will be to a lot more of that as the day progresses.

We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

    LOL!! Glad to hear you are still preachin! What a blessing. I hate that you are having Thanksgiving in the hospital but so thankful you are doing well and having your family close…Mark..you are deeply loved. This whole experience will give you so many stories!!!! I’m visiting with Shannon in Seattle and we were talking about how you guys kept Duke for us and never told us he destroyed your fish pond! And how kind you were to us. Duke is about 14 now and still kicking. He’s fat and sassy and still loves fish. God bless you my brother! I will continue to pray for your recovery…

    Love in Chrsit,
    TeriU.

    Praise the Lord!! This is something to be thankful for indeed! Mark and Buckley family, may you “..shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life…” Philippians 2: 15-16 whoo hoo!


  10. Dear Mark,
    I’d guess we have about 100 people at Beit Tikvah praying for you, and it looks like our prayers are being answered right before our eyes. I’m glad you found a kosher pig. A real miracle! You told me you have been learning the benefits of Sabbath rest. Now is the time to put those lessons into practice. Love and miss you.

    Dear Kristina,
    You are a champion, taking care of your husband. I’m glad you’re finding some rest in the midst of the storm. All the extended Slobodkins continue to pray for you and Mark. We love and miss you on this Thanksgiving.
