"Gentlemen we can rebuild him, We have the technology... Better than he was before... Better, Stronger, Faster."
I was 14 years old when I first heard those words. The show was The Six Million Dollar Man and the year was 1974. I must admit, I was intrigued with the thought of a Bionic Man.
Now I'm 60 and I'm about to receive a bionic knee... after 216 days of VA Doctor appointments, x-rays, physical therapy evaluations, exams, more exams, miles of bureaucratic red tape, numerous telephone conversations, and too many prayers to count, on Monday morning I will receive a knee replacement. No, it's not really bionic... it's actually a protesis... but it will make things better when it comes to my mobility.
To all of you who have encouraged me, prayed for me, and supported my continued mission work stateside while I have pursued this much needed operation, THANK YOU!
I do ask for one more round of prayers for a successful surgery and recovery. I have faith that God will continue to work in my ongoing mission efforts both stateside and abroad. I can't wait to get back up to full speed and witness God's working in 2019.
God bless you.
