Back Home and Back in the News (Lima News in Ohio)

Faith is back home from the hospital.  She came home Friday evening even though she has bled a little more, it was not significant enough to keep her in the hospital.  She is happy and feeling pretty good and the bleeding appears to have stopped .  It doesn't look like she will need a tranfusion this time which is good and at the same time we were hoping she would bleed enough to find the source.  Our little "woman with an issue of blood."  God continues to give us opportunities to allow Him to work in us and through us.

Rick Santorum spoke last night in my home town of Lima, Ohio.  When we learned about this, we contacted the Lima News to see if they would be interested in our story.  We interviewed with Dave Trinko, New Media Editor, Wednesday evening and the story is on page 2 of the Lima News today, the Sunday edition of the paper.  The lead story is obviously the visit by Rick Santorum followed by our story with the newest pictures of Faith, the Smith clan, and Rick Santorum from a week ago when he was near us here in Michigan.  Jesi noticed that Rick looked so much happier in the Lima News photo with his wife beside him.  Not that he was unhappy, but it must get a bit lonely even with all those people around him...seems obvious that he adores his wife.  Ohio's primary is Tuesday so this is good timing.  Here are links to the story.

My mom was able to meet Rick and Karen Santorum for a minute last night at the event which was fun for her, but it was packed with around 1,500-1,800 people so not much time.  My older brother Gene is a lieutenant in the Ohio State Highway Patrol and was on Rick Santorum's protection detail.  He spoke to Rick for just a second, but was able to get a photo with Newt Gingrich and his wife.
