On the good news front, Jim's heart is good and strong, (we knew that), but on the other side, Jim is coming home from the hospital today to await a rescheduling of his surgery.
He's fine with that, knowing it's all in God's hands, so we must continue to pray and put all of our faith and trust in God. "In God, We Trust."
Our FReepathon got off to a great start yesterday with 18 Donations of $100 or more and 3 New Monthly Donors, including 1 New $1-A-Day Donor! I mention these Donations because of our Campaigns: Our 300 Club and Our New Monthly Donor Campaign, which I'll describe below.
Every quarter, FReeper I_be_tc, challenges 300 FReepers to match her $100 donation. Yesterday, I kicked-off I_be_tc's $100 challenge to get things started, so please join me, if you possible can!
It was a big stretch for me, but I want to try to get this FReepathon done quickly for Jim's sake, and I know y'all do, too.
If you send in $100 or more per quarter, please send me a note (in Jim's temporary absence) and I'll add your screen name to the 300 Club Roster! Now, please don't be shy about adding your name. We know you're humble, but seeing your names on the Roster often times inspires others to join you!
Our New Monthly Donor Campaign got off to a great start, too! We conduct this campaign because reliable Monthly Donations are an ideal way to support Free Republic. We already have 3 Very Generous FReeper Sponsors, Tijeras_Slim, upchuck and "somebody", for this Quarter's NMD Campaign! All three FReepers are donating $10.00 for each New Monthly Donor who signs up, so please consider Donating Monthly, if you can reliably do so! $15 a month is 50 cents a day. Please ask yourselves, "what is FR worth to you?"
Whether your donation is $5, $10, $20, $50 or $100 or more, it all helps keep FR alive and will be sincerely and truly appreciated!!
In closing, I know times are tough, unconscionably tough, but for Jim's sake, I'm asking you all to please dig deep and to please dig deep right away or as soon as you possibly can, so that Jim can have some peace of mind while he awaits his new surgery date and then after his successful surgery, he can spend his time recovering, instead of spending 2 months fundraising.
In Jim's temporary absence, Just Amy, (whom you all know and adore) will be posting the incoming. She is Jim's life-long, close friend and also his business partner and FR's bookkeeper. So please, let's get those donations coming in! However, with Jim at home today, we might see him here too!
We Can Do This, provided We ALL pitch in right away. Please always remember, $25 keeps FR ALIVE!!

Our good Lord is listening. God bless and keep you all and everyone you love.
Prayers for Jim his beautiful wife Sheila and sons Chris and John and his fabulous, caring doctors.
Lord, hear our prayers.
Howdy everyone! One of the surgeons stopped in this morning saying I definitely did not have a heart attack. Heart is strong. But the lead surgeon is out so they will have to reschedule for sometime next week. Thank you all very much for your well-wishes and prayers.
Love you all very much! God bless,
