Diane allowed me to speak briefly with Bishop Stewart. He had gone to see his surgeon Tuesday which was the first time he had been out of his home since coming home from the surgery to correct a twisted intestine.
Bishop Stewart said, "The first thing my surgeon said to me was 'I want to give God the glory for the success of this operation. Secondly, I am grateful that you are in tip top physical shape for a man of 86.'"
His doctor told him it was normal for him to be weak and that it will take at least six weeks to fully recover. Leon added, I have already passed week one.
In his weakness, Bishop Stewart wanted to know how my pacemaker is doing. I was able to report that today, Wednesday, March 30, is one week since I had the pacemaker implanted in my body and connected by two wires to my heart muscle. I will visit my surgeon today in his office at 12:30 for a check up. I fully expect him to remove the bandage over the incision, and that it is healed. I want him to tell me I can take a shower and enjoy the water flowing over my body. Then, I want him to lift the driving restriction. Two weeks is unacceptable for me. I hate to have Melvine and Greg drive me where I have to go.
Greg will be flying from Atlanta to Budapest, Hungary on Saturday, April 2. He will be gone one week during his spring break from teaching school. He wants to visit with faculty and staff of the technical high school where he taught English as a Second Language, attend an opera, and visit sites he would like to see again. Greg served as an IPHC Tent Maker Missionary for two years about 20 years ago.
We will take Greg to the Atlanta International Airport for his flight on Saturday. Although Melvine is an excellent driver, I would like to drive our Honda CRV home through the Atlanta traffic. It is always tough.
