The news is awesomely good today! Two days ago (Monday) Tom's pneumonia was improved greatly and the Doc's at St. Luke's were able to successfully place stents in Pastor Tom's heart!!! This strengthens the heart, makes blood flow freely and decreases the likelihood of a heart attack. Yesterday, 6-6-17 Pastor Tom came off the breathing machine and the tube down his throat was removed. He is breathing 100% on his own. God's healing hand and compassionate grace are wonderful!
Tom is very weak and tired from being so ill and all the medical procedures. He speaks only a few words at a time and often is too tired to complete a thought. Even with that, one of his first words was, "Churches"...he wanted to know if the folks at his current and former churches were coping!
Continuing with cards and prayers is much appreciated while Tom, his doctors and his Medical Power of Attorney continue to feel it's not yet time for visitors. Let us give thanks to God for answered prayer!
With renewed vision and hope,
Rev. Dianna Niemann-Harris
