“Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them” (Psalm 111:2).
Milt writes more the next day:
Tuesday morning (2-11-14)
Good morning, my love. I prayed that our Lord would give you a good night of rest. I understand you are having a lot of pain and stiffness from the accident.
Not being able to talk with you is very difficult. Worse yet, is not knowing how you are doing and if you are getting better. I called Mitzi 3 times yesterday to get updates but she had nothing further.
I just got a report from Mitzi, and I just praised the Lord. She said they put you on oxygen this morning as you were having trouble breathing. She also told me the bleeding was better and they had taken you off Plavix and aspirin to help control the bleeding in your brain.
Scott will get the Toyota out of storage, have it tuned up and ready to drive. This car may not be right for you but only you can make that decision.
I am so grateful to our great God for sparing you. We are both walking miracles. Except for the grace of God we would both be dead. He still has work for us to do.
I have never felt so helpless in my entire life. I want to be with you, to hold you and care for you. You have been through so much and your body must still be in shock.
Did you see the car before it hit you? Do you know if the other lady was hurt?
My love, I have peace that God is going to take good care of you and you will be feeling better soon.
All my love, Milt.
Love feels the sorrows others feel,
It longs to give support,
And love is quick to take delight
In every good report. –D. De Haan
Milt DID receive a Valentine Card from me that Friday, February 14th, however. My sweet friend, Joan, did an especially kind deed. When she and her husband were in to see me in ICU Tuesday (the day Milt was writing this letter), she showed me a beautiful card she had purchased for me to send him. That’s right! I read it, wrote my sentiments, and signed it; she addressed, stamped, and mailed it that afternoon, and it reached Milt not a day early or the day after but on Valentine’s Day!
