Report from Debbie about Grace who had her 1st surgery for scoliosis this week. Chad, our son, talked to Beka, our granddaughter and Grace is doing great. They though she would be there for a week to 10 days but she maybe able to go home tomorrow. They will not put the cast on until July. Chad is taking a bus to New Orleans so he can ride back with Grace while Beka drives. They keep giving her meds so she will be still. Beka says she will not stay in the bed. Wants to run around. She seems to be doing better than I am.
Today one-by-one the older girls came through my bedroom. I am in a chair so each gave me a hug. This ends the one-up as every child on campus has passed through the last 3 days to hug me. It was over 50 years ago we buried our baby, Misty Dawn, and 8 years later we buried Dorothy Michelle and between the two we buried our ply natural son, Jonathon David. When that happened we felt our live could never be full. But look at the 4700 children who have hugged us, love us and prayed for us. I took a special foot this morning as one of the girls is 15 years old and has two babies here. She and Dottie hugged and kissed as I snapped the oldest and the youngest mother on campus. No human being has walked tho earth with larger blessings than Mike Clark. I suppose you could say “HE HAS IT ALL”.
