Upon arriving home from his doctor's visit today (which was several hours long!), he fell limp in Joshua's arms (which had never happened before). We called yet another ambulance, which this time took him to Central Harnett Hospital in Lillington, where he is receiving excellent care for spiking blood sugar, severe mobility problems, memory loss, and more. Your continued prayers are requested.

06/23/20 and Beyond... IF YOU THINK SOMETHING'S WRONG, YOU'RE RIGHT. My husband awoke with life-threatening vascular and kidney issues on 06/21/20, and was transferred by ambulance to the hospital this morning. Your prayers are requested. As the Cape Fear Valley Hospital ER staff botched both his diagnosis and treatment, pronounced him "fine" and dismissed him to go home, we had to call 911 for another ambulance on 06/24/20,  because his knees and legs were too swollen to move and descend the 3 stairs to get into the car! Our #4 son, Joshua, and I drove him to our magnificent primary care giver, Mr. Sidney Wolinsky, PA-C. There he was able to get the extensive treatment he needed, and his life was spared again. His body is on the mend, but an entirely new set of disturbing issues has arisen. We'll return there on 07/01/20. Please keep those prayers coming our way.

The Impossible

Written by
Kelley Lovelace and Lee Thomas Miller

Recorded by Joe Nichols (b. 26 Nov 1976), 2002


My dad chased monsters from the dark
He checked underneath my bed
An he could lift me with one arm
Way up over top of his head
He could loosen rusty bolts
With a quick turn of his wrist
He pulled splinters from his hand
And never even flinched
In thirteen years I'd never seen him cry
But the day that grandpa died, I realized

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible


And then there was my junior year
Billy had a brand new car
It was late, the road was wet
I guess the curves was just too sharp
I walked away without a scratch
They brought the helicopter in
And Billy couldn't feel his legs
Said he'd never walk again
But Billy said he would and his mom and daddy prayed
And the day we graduated, he stood up to say:

Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible


So don't tell me that it's over
Don't give up on you and me
'Cause there's no such thing as hopeless
If you believe:


Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happens just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate
The impossible
