HOME FOR A BIT…


Hello Friends,

I’m home for a bit. I’ve been traveling a lot. Don’t get me wrong I love traveling but it is also nice to take a break. Yet it feels a little odd. Sometimes I wonder if this was the life I was meant for? Still tho it is nice to have a place to call home and rest. We all need to rest at times right?

 

I really love October. It is my favored moth of the year and not because of Haloween. I always just felt more alive and fresh every October in Florida. My parents were married on October 11th and my Favored Bible verses is John 10:10. SO I always hoped one day maybe I could get married on October 10th.  I recently found out the Cherokee tribe considers October as the New Year moth, and not January. 

We are part Cherokee on my mom and dad’s side. My dentist was actually said the number of points I have on some of my teeth proved I was Cherokee. It is silly but knowing this really makes a lot of things in my life make sense better.  Since it is October I want to Say Happy new year to the  Cherokee people!

 

I don’t have much time until I am off on another trip. I will work on my books, continue to clean out the house more, and continue to make progress towards who I want to be … I don’t have much time but I will make the most of it. I hope.  Let us be honest it is a never-ending job!!! 

 Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

My Dad’s Heath….


Hello All,

“My Dad”

My dad is one of my biggest heroes. He would go to all my doctor heart appointments and act silly to keep the mood light. I have always tried to be a good daughter. [I’m not perfect tho. 🤣]

When I was a child and he worked swing shift, I would always make excuses to stay up and wait for him to come home. That became easier as I got older. Sometimes when he got home we woul all as a family go swimming under the stars. He has always strived to keep the family close and to be a good dad 👨 ❤

He is a kind man who works hard. He is always learning new things and creating new things, and inventing new ways to fix things. He is almost always willing to help others whenever he can. He never says a bad word about anyone. Whenever he got sick he would hide it if possible. He hardly ever showed weakness.

“A squirrel on the Wolf dad carved with a chainsaw”

In 1992 just before hurricane Andrew he had a heart attack. That was the first time we saw him really ill. I remember sitting outside the hospital door in Orlando while Hurricane Andrew passed over the state. Trying to entertain my sisters and not worry about my dad while mom was with him. That was a difficult task for sure. He refused to let us girls see him which was painful for us. Thankfully he survived and recovered.

“Dad and Rinley”

It wasn’t until December 2015 where he had a second heart attack and Flatlined. Thank God the doctor didn’t give up on Dad and he came to after 11 electro shocks. After that he had a triple bypass, a stent, and a defibulator put in throughout three surgeries, within the same week. He was subosoed to make a full recovery but he was still pretty weak. Because of a blood clot in his somach that caused issues getting blood to his leggs on top of a bad hip. That didn’t stop him from being as active as possible.

“Mom and Dad”

Then in 2018 he developed strep / cellulitis in his foot which turned into a some sort of vasular ulser. It took most the skin off the top of his foot almost causeing him to lose his foot. I won’t share the pictures I have here but possibly in a book in tbe futer. It was pretty gross at some points.

He became bedridden, all the doctors said there was nothing they could do that he should just prepare for the end. We had nurses and physical therapy coming several times a month. It really tested our faith. Dad had blood poisoning three maybe four times. He was on several antibiotics non stop. We didn’t give up tho, we kept praying!

“Jini and Dad.”

After months of his foot getting worse we finally went to see a second doctor who wanted to do a bypass surgery in his legs even though everyone insisted it would be a lost cause. They they proceeded to do the bypass surgery in his legs, they were pretty sure they would still have to amputate his foot later tho. But we kept praying and standing on the word of God. When reading the Bible out loud to him we came across a verese that we know God gave us for the trials we’ve been facing….

We claimed that over him and stood in faith. They kept insisting that his foot had to be taken, and maybe more. The day before the sugery, which we didn’t realize was scheduled they heard blood flow. So we asked them to push the sugery back and they agreed to push it back three days to see if there would be enough blood flow to save his foot. After the second day they canceled his sugery and he started a treatment that they use for burn victims. Called mist therapy.

“Jabber and another chainsaw carving of dad’s.”

After a month of treatment his foot was well to come home. I took him to a burn dr three timesca week untill he was well enough for a skin graft. When they did his first graph they also had to remove a some of the bone in his foot and big toe due to it being infected. But nothing to major. His first graph was promising tho not perfect but he needed a second one from his own skin from his thigh. Tho painful for sure he made a full recovery after almost a year of stress, fear, anger and pain!

Don’t Give up hope for a miracle. It may take a while, and may not come about the way we wsnt. But God is a Good! He is a loving father who gave us his son Jesus.

Don’t Give up hope and be strong. We may not understand the path we are traveling but it will be a path that will make a difference. 😀 God brings good out of all bad situations. I truly believe that and I fully trust God.

My dad never gave up, and he’s better, znd more active now tgen after his bypass surgery in 2015. He is one of my biggest heroes and I strive to be more like him.

“I Love my Dad”

God bless you today and always!

💕 Amy Jane Sandberg
