NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "The Glory of Roses"

"The Glory Of Roses"
© Nora Kasten
Oil painting on linen  (30" x 24")  From the archives  SOLD

"First, let me say a huge thank you to everyone for lifting up my son, Jett, in prayer.  Yesterday, Sunday, I was able to go to the hospital in Tarpon Springs to be with him all afternoon and evening.  He was in a lot of pain but kept putting off getting more meds for relief . .  .  I told him not to play macho man in front of his mother.  He didn't take the meds though until after I left and the nurse told him that he cannot let the pain get ahead of him like that and to keep taking the pain medication every 4 hours for a while longer.

His left leg and foot are dark, dark gray but thankfully, more feeling is coming back in his foot today.  He was able to finally get out of bed yesterday and walk with a walker so we took a couple of short walks in the hall together.  He's hoping he can use a cane tomorrow instead of the walker.  His INR blood tests results are still too low and he must stay in the hospital until the Cumadin regimen he's on works. His risk of a blood clot is still very high.  I am so thankful the surgeon could help Jett . . .  . especially since he had waited much too long before getting help.  

I often refer to my four sons as the boys, when in fact they are all middle aged men now.  I'm praying that Jett will make better choices for his life and he will understand just how merciful God has been to him.   My faith is ever greater because of all your prayers and the Goodness of God.  I am most thankful and grateful."

Good news. I'm glad you're seeing improvement. The spirit needs that! Your role has been. to be a pillar of strength this year. You've played it so well. I think its truly your own faith that pulls miracles. Happy Thanksgiving my friend. In a year where you may have found little to be thankful for, Jett now gives you something powerful to be giving thanks for.

Personally, I'm very thankful for the time we spent together. Be well and stay healthy. Your family is very lucky to have you...

Nora, you have my continued prayers
during these times, as does Jett.
A mothers love is the comfort only you can give.
Maybe that's why we should honor our Father & Mother, it's a commandment to help us.
