Mollie, I've been thinking of you and you are in my prayers. Hopefully you will move out of ICU today or very soon, be patient, it does take a while for the swelling to decrease and the sutures to take hold! In the mean time try to walk as often as you can and chose the chair instead of the bed. Stay on top of your pain, but not so much that you can't think straight!! It sounds like you have a great support system! God Bless
Just checking in! You maybe a little thang, but your a tough little cookie! I know your going to be healed and better than ever! I know God is getting a hear full, because we all LOVE you so much! I'll check back in a little while!
p.s. Mollie is so blessed to have you Jim and of course those precious girls!!!!
You all have been on our hearts and in our prayers all week long. I'm so sorry that you're having to go through this struggle but I do whole-heartedly believe that our Loving Father is in control and that He is not surprised by this situation. I have been praying that the Lord will use this struggle as a way to strengthen your reliance on Him and to have an even stronger marriage. Once you get passed this difficult post-op time, your sweet precious family will have a deeper bond. My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11 He has a plan for you to prosper and not to harm you. Paul and I will continue to pray for your healing.

You poped into my mind first thing this morning and was happy to see that Jim had posted. So sorry yesterday was a tough day for you, but I pray today will be better. I have faith that it will be better and soon you can leave ICU behind!
Bill and I along with Mattielu continue to pray for you. Mattielu is here with us sense Luanna is in Florida with Susan and its funny and such a blessing to see how fast God answers her prayers. we love you, LuLane

Chris had issues that kept him in ICU for a few days too! I know you just want to relax and move on so that you can feel like she is going to get better and past the scary stuff. She will! Everyone in their own time and God's time.

So, so glad the surgery is over & from what we hear you're doing great! Beth sent me a picture & you looked beautiful as ever! I hope by now you're feeling the magnificent difference now that things are pumping like they should be. Looked like it from your picture anyway :-). Trey & I are certainly keeping you, Jim & the girls in our prayers! This journal thing is really so nice :-) I know you'll enjoy reading all of the love being sent your way once you get up to it... Even though Jim had read so much of it to you I'm sure you'll re-read again. Can't wait to see you in the very near future my sweet friend!

P.S Jim are you honestly hiding that you are that wrestler on the side....lol
Mom and Dad forwarded me the email and we have been praying for you guys every night this week. I just read all of the journal entries and I am very happy to hear the good news. Jimmy I completely understand everything you are saying about the hospital, it is not for me either. I will continue to keep up and continue to pray for you guys. Miss you guys a lot and can't wait to hear you are outta there.
I remember when you told me you had just met this guy named Jim, and he was REALLY TALL!!!!!
And you said, "Holly, HE is just such a Good person, HE is just GOOD!!" WOW
Doesn't God have a way with leading you to the "good" people in life. The right One!!!
Thank You JIM for loving Mollie and taking care of her!!!
Your a GOOD man and husband!!!
Stay strong there will be mounds of jewels in your crown!!!
Dear Mollie, We are so happy to hear that your surgery went so well and about your wonderful progress! We continue to pray for you and for your family. This journal is a fabulous idea and we are glad for the updates! Hang in there Jim!!!
Mollie, I pray the road to recovery is fast and as painless as possible. Keep your spirits hi knowing friends and family are with you .
Jim thank you for being such a wonderful husband!Don't forget to take care of yourself!!
Much love to you and the girls(my girls have sent prayers your way!!)
Toby, Rachel, Le'la, Tatum & Baylee
Mollie , Jim and girls...It was such a blessing to me to be with all the family in the waiting room during Mollie's surgery. All of our love for you, Mollie, drew us together into a tight knit group as we waited, remembering the fun times
growing up and then the blessed time we had praising our Lord in prayer as each one of us shared our hearts desire for His devine guidance and care for you as your Dad closed our prayter time .We serve a mighty Savior and praise him that our family can lift each other up in prayer. Thank you God that we love and care for each other. Love you, Aunt Winkie
Hi Mollie! - and Jim! I am so happy (although I'm boo-hooing my eyes out at this moment) that the surgery went so well. I will continue to pray for a speedy recovery. What a blessing it's been to read about your progress and your tremendous faith! You guys are a sweet pair.
Honestly the worst part of the whole recovery process , the oxygen ! It was so frustrating getting tangled up in all the cords when you tried to turn over or get up. I had a nurse ratchet that came in at midnight every night and got mad at me because I didn't have it on! I didn't say thank you, to him when I went home. I'm praying for her. I know she'll be just fine.
Such wonderful news!!!! Mollie, you have made great progress.....Jim, you are a trooper.....don't forget to take care of u!!! We love you.....Luanne and Billie....mom said to tell Mollie that she never let go of her hand!!!
Hi Molly, So glad that you are on the mend. Please take time for yourself and be sure to go to cardiac rehab. I had my aortic valve replaced 3 years ago at age 66 and I am doing fine. Just a hint, get a body pillow so you can hug it as it makes sleeping better. Also get your nails and feet and hair done as it will make you feel better. Know that our prayers are with you. Marlane
I was so touched to receive your husband's e-mail about your surgery. It has been a blessing to be able to pray for you! I loved when he said, "if you know Mollie, you know she has a heart as big as Texas". What a perfect description of you! Your journal entries (and your husband's) are so encouraging and it is wonderful to hear the great love you have for each other and our Lord. I know it must feel so good to have the surgery behind you and I will be praying for your speedy recovery. God is our Sustainer and I know He will take care of you during your recovery. You are an amazing woman, wife, mother and Christ follower and I am so thankful to know you!
Dear Mollie (and nurse Ratched) You look incredibly good. Thanks so much for the updates, Jim. I get my tissue ready each time I open one! So happy this surgery is behind you and that it went so well. Jim a/k/a/ Nurse Ratched, back off the lunch trays and keep up the support. You're amazing. Bandit is doing good. He played Keno with the girls last nite. He had fun. Love and Hugs, Judy
Stay strong, Mollie! I went through this in February at the age of 41. Recovery was rough at first, but got better very quickly. Only 6 months later I can hardly believe how much better I feel. It is all frightening and surreal, but I am so glad to now be spending my days with my 5 year old and my husband. There is a great life after recovery! Please know that you are not alone and that we are all thinking of you.
Sounds like Mollie is progressing as expected! All wonderful things! From my experience with Kyle and myself the first time up is the most difficult! It should get better each time. Pain control is so important. Sounds like Mollie is not afraid to ask for pain meds, good! I hope that you are trying to get some rest yourself! Hope all continues to progress as it has! Praying for Mollie's continued speedy recovery! Love you guys, Emily and the Gang
Bill's kept my in the loop and you've all been in my thoughts and prayers. Believed you'd come out of this healthier than ever. You've made the recovery period - now for the marathon! Love you, Linda Eakman
hoorah for all the good news......I dropped my phone in the Atlantic Ocean off of the fishing pier.....could not wait to find a computer to find out how great she is moving along.......Molllie is a true rockstar and now she has a healthy even sweeter heart! Thanks slim Jim for all the updates!
Dear Mollie, so thankful for the amazing recovery you are beginning now!!! God is with every wonderful breath you take! Your dear husband is keeping us updated on your progress and how you are a nurse's dream patient! Praying for you dear girl and Gods healing hands over each detail in this journey! I love you! Priscilla
We are elated to hear your surgery went so well. I am so glad your pain is being controlled! You, Jim, and the girls are in our continued prayers. Hang in there each day will get a little better! I pray for you to get your pacer wires out soon, so you can enjoy your hot shower!!
Dear Jim, thank you for the updates! I'm thrilled by Mollies progress so far and it is only day two. Unbelievable! Up in a chair for breakfast is amazing to me!!
Take care of yourself and get some rest while Mollie is in good hands. Give the girls and Mollie our love and know that we have you all in our prayers.
Thanks again, LuLane
