Note: Unknown to me. Steve Shelby began a 24x7 prayer vigil that began on 6/17 when I entered the hospital and it was scheduled to end 7/2 which turned out to be the day I was released to go home.  This was not a coincidence.  God new what day I would be released and that 24x7 prayer would not be needed after I was released to go home.  Another miracle.
