GOD'S HEALING GRACE, a message from Connie Bartz:
I will sing and dance in the courts of the Lord, I will offer up praises and prayers of thanksgiving for the Lord is good,  He makes all things new in His time. Glory be to God and to His Son, Jesus!

The surgeon's report was outstanding!  Xrays today and in four months to judge stability.  No longer required to wear the brace at night.  Brace may come off 30 minutes a day due to weak muscles.  By the end of two week period, should be out of it completely.  If, in the future, the neck developed a deformity, additional surgery would be required.  Given permission to drive and to fly. I am thrilled!
Thank you for your love, prayers, emotional support, delicious meals.  Each one of you is an angel!  Know that you are dearly loved and held close in my heart.
