True Love Ways



If you have read either of my books, you would remember that I said to always keep your blogs “happy places to visit.” Well, sometimes there are exceptions. This is one of them. I decided that in the midst of what is going on, I would tell you what’s happening “behind the scenes” right now.


My husband and I met 7 years ago. At the time we met, he was an amputee...He had a below-the-elbow amputation caused by a work accident many years ago. He is a power lineman and he had gotten electrocuted when he was in his early thirties.


At the time of his accident, it was not easy for him to adjust to his circumstances, but being the hard worker that he is, he never gave up. After a long time in intensive care, he returned to work and climbed power poles and did all of his work one-handed. He was determined.


A couple of weeks ago, he was out of state at work and got hurt on the job. As if things could not be any harder for him, he injured his other arm. We found out today that he has to have surgery, requiring him to lose all use of his other arm during the long recuperation period.


You all know me so well that it didn’t seem right to leave all of this out of my blog because I believe this will be a long road ahead. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. If you know any angels personally, please ask them to pay a visit to Louisiana.


In the next few weeks and months, if I don’t get to each and every one of your blogs personally, please understand that I will be greatly needed around here.


And after you read this, I hope that those of you who are in relationships will hug your loved one a little tighter. A hug is a gift--trust me. We never know what will happen in life.


I will still be working from home, so if you need blog buttons or headers, I will definitely be available to create them. Because I knew that this surgery might be possibility, in the last 2 weeks, I completed all of my projects for my design teams through Christmas. So, of course, these will be in my posts.


I love my new scrapbooking program, so since I will be home alot, I will still be making layouts and showing them to you. If you want a scrapbooking program for yourself, you can save $10 with my coupon code STMMMS19107. My Memories button is at the top of my right sidebar.


Love,


Cindy

Ann Nichols said...

Oh dear Cindy~
I will pray pray pray for you and your dear husband. Pray that after the recovery period that his arm will be as good as new and able to do all the things he needs it to do. Bless your heart and his... and I will definitely pray to "Cindy's husband's angel" to touch his arm and make it all better. Sounds so simple...and to God, it really is!(read all the Bible verses on healing - they always help!)
Blessings for health for you and healing for your husband during this trying time.

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Cindy,
I am so sorry to hear this!! I am amazed though that he was working and doing all that he did with only one arm! Truly remarkable and commendable!
Knowing very well what surgery on the other arm will entail, I will say that you will have your work cut out for you. Will the arm be immobilized after surgery or casted? Just curious.

My prayers are with you and your family.I pray that he will have a speedy recovery.

Many Hugs,
Debbie

Dorthe said...

My dear Cindy, how terrible for him-(and you) I so hope the surgery will leave him well, and functionable again.
3 years ago my husbond cut all 4 fingers off his left hand by the root....not at all like the underarm-but we know how it is to try to adjust to life again,after being amputated.
Sending you hugs and love- and hopes for quick recovery.
Dorthe

Rhissanna said...

Oh, Cindy, you must be so worried and anxious. This is a miserable thing for your hubby to have to go through. I hope and pray that after all the frustration of recuperation after the surgery, that things turn out ok. Please keep us posted and if there's anything we can do, let us know.

Fliss said...

So very sorry to hear about your poor hubby Cindy and really hope he recovers from his surgery quickly as it's going to be so difficult for you both.
Sending big hugs your way.

craftattack said...

Burlap Luxe said...

Hi Cindy, I am going to pray for your Ralph, I will pray that while he goes through his surgery that the use of his arm and hand will be spared, that he will recover with full use of it to do as he choses to do!

We won't claim bad news over here, we won't even claim the worst that could happen to him during surgery, the only thing we will claim is God is so much bigger then mans junk and that Ralph will recover walking into faith strong and able to regain use of his arm and hand.

A powerful prayer for your Ralph and you my friend. I so will miss our late email chats, and your beautiful visits to my place of inspiration, then for me to return to be inspired with all that you create soulfully over here.

Take care my dear friend, I will expect you to return to blogging in a short time proclaiming a miracle.

hugs and kisses to your strength!
xoxo
Blessings :)

Your husband has been in my thoughts since you shared the possibility of surgery with me. I cannot tell you how saddened I am to read that it is now a reality.
It is a long journey ahead for both of you but his strength of character is obviously remarkable and I know that you are a strong woman. You will both get through this.
I hope you both take comfort from the outpouring of well wishes that are before you and remember it will never be out of sight out of mind as you will be in all of our minds.
Sending positive thoughts and a wee hug your way.

NanaDiana said...

Cindy-

I do believe that we are all tested each and every day of this life. Why some of these tests are so hard is beyond my understanding.

I am praying for you...and if it's okay with you I will be doing a post on my blog with a link to yours- As a thought- why don't you create a Prayer for your hubby button that people can put on their blogs if they would like? I don't do a lot of linky things on my blog but this is one thing I would be proud to post. You have helped so many others that it would be nice to be able to repay you a bit.

I love you, my dear friend, and I will be praying not only for your husband but for YOU- for YOUR strength and wisdom and courage. God bless- xo Diana

You give that man an extra big hug and a huge kiss from an old lady in Idaho, sugar. I can't even begin to imagine his stress level. Prayer helps a lot, trust me. I will be doing it for him, sweetpea. I know you can persevere through this trial.

Faye said...

Cindy, I am so sorry that your husband is going through so much. I remember you told me about how he built the wainscoting on the stairs and that he had only one arm. My prayers are with you and with him. I wish I could remember his name. Ralph seems like it. I like to pray for specific names. But you know, and I know that our God is an awesome God. He already knows his name and his situation. Sending hugs.

Suzanne said...

Hi Sweet Cindy,
We will always be here to give you hugs and we KNOW God will hold you in his arms...all the while looking forward to the day Ralph can hold you in his:) God Bless you and give you and Ralph strength, Sweetie!

Sue said...

Hello Cindy
I was saddened to hear of the traumatic time you have had with DH.
I agree you have a long journey ahead, and I hope with all my heart that your DH can mentally deal with this added loss, you also will be feeling devastated.
I cannot begin to imagine what it is going to be like for you both in the coming months, you will no doubt have good days and bad days, I hope you will let us know when you are down so that we can make you feel that you are not alone and that you can sound off if it will help. All I can say now is Good Luck and I will be thinking of you both.

Debby said...

Oh Cindy I am so sorry. I hope and pray for you and your husband. So hard. They do amazing things anymore, maybe they can do a prothesis laster on. My Dad was a lineman for an electric company. He went on to be the manager. It is a unique job. We all complain when our power is out but there are people like your husband and my father out there working very hard to restore our power. Youa re so right about not knowing where life will take you. I am glad that you blogged about this. Three weeks ago a person involed directly in our lives (to hard to explain) went missing. His truck was found and that was it.
No one knows anything about him. So sad. We just never know. Good luck and prayers are coming your way.
And here is a big ((((((HUG)))))

Oh I cannot imagine how you all feel at this moment, but if you husband is a determined man, he will pull through this...I KNOW IT...we shall pray for him to accept his recovery period as a time of grace and quiet, and then the push to restore his routine will come...I am pretty sure of it, as you describe him. MAY GOD'S ANGELS BE WITH YOU CONSTANTLY, Anita

Cindy, first time here, read part of your story over at Diana's (Nana Diana) I am so so sorry. I do hope your husband if doing well and that he is off to a speedy and fully successful recovery. I know this cannot be easy though. I don't know angels personally (if I did I would lock them up my house and throw away the key) but I will keep you both in my prayers....sending you a hug:)

I am sorry to hear of your husband's accident and subsequent surgery. It's hard to believe that people can have so many trials in life, but as many have said before, it only makes you stronger. I hope that you all come through this and know that you are surrounded by so many who wish you the best. Wishing you much comfort and healing! May angels from all over surround you as well.
