Our 4th Quarter FReepathon is underway, but very sadly, not with Jim at the helm right now, because he is in Fresno's VA Hospital awaiting a rescheduling of his surgery to remove his remaining leg, that's causing him extraordinary pain and actually starting to poison his otherwise fairly healthy body, and I only say "fairly healthy" because of the strain this leg has put on his body and also because of his diabetes. Jim is otherwise one healthy, very strong dude!
If you don't know, his surgery had to be delayed yesterday because his heart beat was too fast, so his very knowledgeable, very caring and very cautious doctors determined that his magnesium level was too low and he was too dehydrated.
As I'm writing this, the last word Just Amy, I and All received from Jim last night read: Thank you all very much! Now in my room in ICU. Were still hoping for surgery tomorrow. Praying for the very best. God bless you all.
Thank you all so much for your loving prayers and please continue to pray for Jim and his beautiful wife Sheila and sons Chris and John, all of whom must be going through so much stress and heart ache in their own right, along with Jim and his own pain and anxiety.
I'll likely be very disjointed because words aren't coming easily to me, so please bear with me. I love Jim Robinson and I love his family. I can tell by your prayers and your outpouring of love that y'all love him, too. I know, make that we know, that our good Lord is standing with Jim and his doctors and that his surgery will be a complete success. It's the waiting... We and Jim, must now have the patience of Job. If Jim's surgery is today, wonderful! If not, we will continue to pray. God is the greatest physician.
I think, it sometimes takes a sad event, to give us a knock in the head to make us realize how much we need and cherish Jim, Free Republic and each other. We not only pray together and for each other and our families, but we also fight the Marxist _resident, his ungodly policies, and his disgraceful un-American demonic-rats, but we also stand together in our fight for freedom, liberty, God, and Constitution, and last night our patriots in the GOP House stood together to stand for us, Constitution, freedom, liberty and God. Sweet Victory!
As you all probably know, during every FReepathon, we always conduct a New Monthly Donor Campaign, because reliable Monthly Donations are an ideal way to support Free Republic. We already have 2 Very Generous FReeper Sponsors, Tijeras_Slim and upchuck, to kick off this Quarter's New Monthly Donor Campaign! Both 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?"
Also, FReeper I_be_tc donates $100 each quarter and challenges 300 others to do the same. If we can get 300 FReepers to send in a $100 or more each, it always helps bring FReepathons to successful conclusions!!
This time, I'm going to kick off I_be_tc's $100 challenge to get things started, so please join me, if you possible can! It's a big stretch for me, (just wait till DrO receives the CC bill...lol & yikes!) 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!
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 after his successful surgery, Jim can spend his time recovering, rather than fundraising for 2 long months!
We Can Do This, provided We ALL pitch in right away.
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!
Please always remember, $25 keeps FR ALIVE!!

Thank you all so very much!!
God bless and keep you all and everyone you love.
Faithful, continuous prayers for Jim, his doctors, and his loving family.
Lord, hear our prayers.
It's a labor of love for those of us on Jim's FReepathon Team, but 2 long months is a very long time and it takes a toll on Jim and everyone, so this time in particular, please help us get this one completed in record time.
God bless you all, and serious prayers for Jim.
P.S. I heard from Jim a little earlier and his heart rate is up (a little)again this morning. He's hoping and praying his doctors can determine the cause, and we are too.
$200. inbound from the Ozarks.
