Calling All Angels

These angels are in the entrance at the hospital where John is, aren't they wonderful?

Everyone has been asking what they can do, I would really like it if everyone sent John a card. He is very depressed, I went to see him yesterday and he was really down. We have not been away from each other for more than a day or two in 21 years. And he is so lonely, and sad about what has happened to him, the reality has finally sunk in. I never actually told you what happened. John fell out of a bucket while trimming trees at work. That is how he broke his neck.

In the confusion of everything Elizabeth forgot to tell how the accident happened.

I don't care if you send a postcard, a homemade card, whatever card you want is fine. I just want him to have hope and to know people care. He loves John Deere, walking sticks, Loves, and I MEAN LOVES Jokes. Woodsy things, he is an outdoor person.

Here is his address:
John Zimmerman
St.Louis University Hospital
3635 Vista Ave.
St. Louis, Mo. 63110
room 630
Just say you are a friend of Nita's so he will know who you are. Anyone who wants to send one thank you , and for those who don't that is o.k. too. Just please keep him in your prayers. * love nita*

John with a volunter also named John

This is my husband John. He broke his neck on the 15th of August. He is paralyzed from the chest down. He can move his arms and fingers. But the fingers are still not working real well right now. Our world has been turned upside down.

I have been in a daze for 2 weeks. We have almost lost him twice due to complications. He ran a 104.5 fever for almost two days. He was hallucinating very badly. John is still fighting infection , and it has kept him from going to the rehabilitation center. John is my best friend in this whole world. Our marriage has not been perfect , but, I really do love him. I talked to a Chaplain at the hospital ( Ann) about some of my concerns and she comforted me so much. This is the first time I have been home for 2 weeks. I don't know what the future holds, I only know that I am happy John is alive. This is going to be hard for him, and hard for me. Our lives as we knew them are over. John really needs prayer right now and I am asking anyone who is a believer to pray for him and my family.
I also want to thank everyone who has sent cards and e-mails and left comments. You don't know how much that has helped me. I thank you all. *love nita*

Though I am surrounded by troubles, my God will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. He will clench His fist against my angry enemies! His Power will save me. The Lord will work out His plans for my life- for His faithful love endures forever.
