The Sharon Report.

Tom's Journal.

My daughter and family stayed over night, and then we all went to the hospital to visit Sharon before noon. I have to admit that Sharon looks better and sounds better, being more coherent, alert and receptive--- but she is still a long way from normal/ healthy. I am just happy for small mercies and slight improvements-- PRAISE THE LORD ! I still had to call the hospital staff to attend to Sharon's needs, like water for her thirsty mouth, her normal meds for her RLS [Restless Leg Syndrome] that they should be knowing about by this stage of the game --as they have her records in house. Sharon is speaking better today, and even called me on the phone a few minutes ago -- so why is the nursing staff so brain dead?? When I come there to see my wife they jump and rush around-- maybe to put on a show for me, but you've got to wonder what it's like right after I leave. Her legs were constantly thrashing uncomfortably all the time I was there, so I asked her if she wanted/ needed her RLS meds and she clearly said 'YES!' I also asked if she was having too much pain and she answered in the affirmative again. Hey! This is not rocket science--- but then, for St. Catherine's in Kenosha, WI., maybe it is. Chrysler Humana is paying a pretty penny for our health insurance that was IN OUR CONTRACT AND HARD WON.

Then I took my daughter, hubby and their 2 children [ages 2 and 4] out for Chinese buffet lunch and then to the Lake Michigan beach to play. I was all dogged out by that time, and they had other relatives to see/ visit, and they said they would return to the 'crash pad' I made available to them during their Wisconsin vacation tomorrow.

It's that time again, when I can hardly wait for the 90 day increment shots/ injections to both of my sore, arthritic knees at the VA-- but that won't be until next month-- and those are the rules of the VA-- you know, the Gov't...Ha! I am slowly healing after my fall last Sunday, tripping on the steps of the back porch carrying in the grilled meat that day. And I fell on my poor old knees too, among other body parts! Makes me feel old and foolish for not picking up my feet and wearing those goofy flip flops instead of the correct shoes....LOL. Hey! Someone else has always got it worse.

'Maybe we Christians have it all wrong' -- many people think.... [NOT!! -- I know much better than that --Ha!], but the "rumors of wars" in the Middle East with all the daily news items and development is exciting to ME! You just don't hear about it much on the 'main media.' When that 'small' war finally does come-- I figure most people on earth will be SURPRISED and SHOCKED. Since many of us THINK that the Rapture MIGHT come around that time, or a bit latter ... should we not get ready RIGHT NOW? I know that I have been hammering this subject without mercy for a long time-- many years, but it's that important. The article below is packed with eye-popping news about a coming war that could be sooner than latter. I found it very interesting.

Thank you all for your prayers for my dear old wife, and me. In many ways, Sharon and I are very BLESSED by the Lord of the universe/ LORD OF THE BIBLE. I figure I owe Him everything. He is testing/ preparing us for that grand existence in HEAVEN-- but also for more harsh tribulation in the near future. Let us NOT resist His wisdom and love/ discipline.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

By Bill Salus. Matthew 24:6 says there will be rumors of war in the end times and current Mideast matters are definitely supporting this prediction. If you put your ear to the ground and eye to the press you can hear the battle cry shouts and observe the deployment of soldiers, heavy military equipment, and deadly arsenals in the Holy Land. Christ, apparently quoting Isaiah 19:2,

Wow! She is making good improvements:) That is good news indeed! Praise God! We pray for Sharon's continued recovery. Maybe you could speak to someone in patient after care about what Sharon's needs will be when she is well enough to go home. Like we were saying before- maybe her needs and care are such now that she needs a long term care facility- nursing home- to really take care of her 'round the clock. We'll keep you both in our thoughts and prayers. Hang in there Tom!

Tom, you forget- I'm from Canada. I know all about socialist medicine! :-) I agree. It's hard for people to understand that although we preach and teach the way we do, all bad stuff coming on the world- but we are optimists!! I have to remind Michael of that every once in a while. He is understanding more these days! God Bless you brother- and sister!! I'm off to sleep shortly, and I hope you both have a better day tomorrow.
