We have had an interesting week here at St. John's Mercy Medical Spa (SJMMS). The personal attention and pampering have been fabulous! If you are looking for your next vacation spot, this is the place (without the brain tumor, of course).
Where else can you be in your PJ's all week and have personal assistants (nurse techs) help out with showers (only with Kate). Or what about the nightly tuck-in service, right before bedtime (with complimentary sleeping pills). Or what about the delicious, nutricious, gourmet meals delivered right to your bedside (now that's room service).
Or what about the posh room accomodations and ammenities; wood floors, neutral decor, parking garage view, beautiful fresh flowers, delicious gift baskets, high-back recliner chair, wireless internet access, two single reclining beds (this is a family environment - no funny business allowed), fresh towel service, mach 10 turbo toilet (no plunger needed here), free covered parking, and much, much more! We will really miss this place.
All kidding aside, this has been a special week for Kate and I; it has strengthened our marriage, renewed our lifelong commitment to each other, deepened our faith and trust in the Lord, strengthened relationships with family and friends, taught us to trust others with our children and daily needs, enabled us to have more compassion with others who are suffering, showed us that others are helping to bear our burdens, demonstrated to us the power of prayer, and given us a clearer focus on our future hope, God's ultimate redemption of ourselves and this world for His Son's glory.
Thank you for sharing this journey with us, now and in the days ahead.
For God's Glory,
Dave and Kate
