Now that  I can post again I wanted to share that Jim finally got his day out fishing. The nurse had said it was ok but only for 30 minutes. I cheated and let him stay an hour. We had to wait for the aid to bathe him so he was impatient to go. He was like a kid waiting for Christmas morning.  My brother in law and a fishing buddy of Jim's went along. I left them on the dock and took Tebow for a walk in the woods. Jim skunked them, as usual. It was only a catfish but he had a ball. I was surprised he wasn't wore out for three days but he did pretty well. We were going to try again Sunday but it was to windy.

All in All we are thankful for this blessing. Amonth ago Jim said he probably would never get to fish again but God had more in mind for him. Thanks for hospice too. Without their care and pain management I think another day to fish would have been impossible. Thanks for your prayers,

Debbie

    So Happy To See This

    As a CSN site admin, we usually try and stay behind the scenes and just make sure everything is running smoothly, but I really wanted to say that I am so glad that Jim got to enjoy another fishing trip! I saw previous posts about how much he loves fishing and how the weather wasn't cooperating. I know he must have thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for updating everyone on his good time!

    Hi Debbie

    Oh how happy I am to hear that Jim got to go fishing and also got the only fish of the day. It is truly a blessing that we can still enjoy what life we have and do the things we love to do. I am going home in June this year, that will be 3 years that I could not go because of all the problems with the mastoid infection I had, and all I can say is June can’t come fast enough for me.

    Happy Fishing Jim

    God Bless
