To show my gratitude for those who are sending John a card or postcard , I will have a drawing on October 5 for scrapbook paper, embellishments, and other wonderful things I have been collecting. You have made his stay in the hospital easier by your show of support, and all of your prayers and warm wishes. I thank you all.
Here is his address:
St. Louis University Hospital
John Zimmerman
Room 630
3635 Vista Ave.
St. Louis, Mo. 63110
Please leave a return address so if you win I will be able to mail you your package.

Hi Nita, you and John are always in my heart and prayers. I am truly inspired by the strength you are showing. I hope those cards just flood in if they are helping John. Please give John my best wishes and know I am thinking about and praying for you all.

Hi Nita! When I hear you mention botany, it reminds me of college when I absolutely loved my plant biology class...I got an A...but when it came to chemistry class...OMG....very bad grade!!! I had to try and bribe the chemistry teacher by making him homemade key lime pies from a key lime tree in back of our dorm! It didn't work...he still flunked me! I remember, he felt I was so lazy (in chemistry class) that he told me I would never have kids, because I was too lazy!!! LOL...fooled him, I had 4!!! Happy times, and fond memories!!! Hope your day was good today!

I just came over from "feathered Nest" because I wanted to tell you how clever your chalkboard idea is! I found the feathered nest today at work and read what she wrote about your husband. I wanted to come home and read all the details, but had no idea it was you when I came here to comment on the chalkboard. I've been thinking of him all day. How our lives can change in a click. Prayers can be powerful too. I work for orthopedic surgeons/spine specialist so his accident was so much on my mind. Keeping you in my thoughts...

Hi Nita~Oh, you and your husband are in my prayers. I was astounded when I came over to your blog and read about what you all are going through. My Mom was in an accident last year, and had many surgeries to save her left leg. She did not know until the very end if it would be saved and it was alas. it's a miracle she can walk. She (and subsequently me and my sis) spent almost 9 months in and out of hosp. with her and I totally know what you are saying about the care there. I saw things I never thought happened in hospitals and I had to go every time a shift changed so that her meds were given right. I am praying for you and your husband. :) Lia

Darling Nita, I am wondering how you are doing? Any news from John's surgery? I am so behind in posts, I am wondering if I can still send a card to the address listed?
Give your daughter a big hug and take care of your self. I will lift you all in prayer.
