Nan Mustard's Recovery

Home again! We can't believe it.

Dear Family and Friends,

Nan is in bed at home with her beloved Starr at her side. We sure did not expect this outcome when we started this day. I knew we had tests and I thought the hospital would take forever getting them done and then we would wait for results and then we would wait some more. Well when Nan arrived back from her second test this afternoon, the one that had her eating radioactive oatmeal and even liking it, she was so very hungry, well when she got back the doctor had signed her release papers so when Sylvia Ahn, our friend from Tracy arrived in her Honda Odyssey Van it was the perfect way to get Nan home. We said good bye to the wonderful nurses, she grabbed one last delicious hospital meal??

We arrived home about 7:30 and Sylvia helped her get comfortable in first her chair and then her bed. She had a Boost over ice and a glass of milk, some very special crackers that Sylvia gave her and decided she was tired. I'm heading up myself in just a few minutes.

We received an email from our friend Bob Miller who is the treasurer of the Tracy SDA Church. He wanted to let us know that he was sending a check for several thousands of dollars to the Nan's Recovery Fund. I was shocked, I figured that once we were headed home and coming back to start work again that the donated funds would not happen again. It comes at a time when we are just facing some pretty serious bills and I am totally overwhelmed at the timing. I just want to say thank you for the help. I also pledge that as soon as we are up and running again with the business that we will in turn find others to help with their challenges.

So once again God has surprised us with His blessings, Nan getting to come home and feeling much better, a boost financially, cool weather, new orders to begin working on to generate income. I am constantly amazed at His love and His help.

I know there are many hurting people tonight. My heart goes out to them as they struggle through life and death issues. This old world has nothing to offer that lasts but people, family, friends, natures beautys, quiet moments, beautiful music, these are the good reasons to live and prosper. My prayer is that I will never forget God's goodness and presence and that as the crisis we have been living with for months subsides I will not get sucked back into the same old work night and day routine ignoring health, relationships and life itself.

Tonight I ask that you remember us in your prayers as being thankful and very happy. It would be nice to know why Nan was so physically troubled thursday evening. It would be nice to know what to do to avoid it in the future. It would be nice to see her be able to eat and gain some weight and strength and be able to travel again, drive again, shop again.

We send our love and appreciation,

tim and nan

    Ah I finally get to read it. I had spoken to you so for the most part I got it. But this is all great news. A true and faithful heart is never left unattended. It may have some bad days but it will still be cared for.
    Congrats. Nan for beiong able to get home. I will pray that you get to stay and relax for a bit. Although you don't really lounge so I guess it would be smarter to pray that you are able to drive the Odysee again !!!!! :)
    Take care
    Pam :)
    Oh yeah....got as far as the lender, all that jibberish. Getting a little closer to Nautical :)
