And now, a word from Jim Hoft

posted at 7:31 pm on October 4, 2013 by

Actually, quite a few of them — including an opening from Psalm 23.  Our good friend Jim is back at Gateway Pundit and relates how he very nearly died, but survived through prayer, faith, and excellent medicare care when he needed it most.  That, and the love and care of friends and family:

My trip to Los Angeles the weekend of August 16th was wonderful. I saw several friends. I spoke at a rally for media fairness. I played the part of an Obama rodeo clown chasing a cow across the stage. It was great fun.

It wasn’t until late Saturday night that I started feeling ill. And I brought what I thought was a cold virus back home with me to St. Louis.

The next week I felt horrible and took cold medicine to try to shake this late summer “virus.” It wasn’t until Thursday when I woke up with no sight in my left eye that I knew something was terribly wrong.

That is when I checked into the hospital and my life changed forever.

My twin brother, who works and lives in Hong Kong, was trying his best to capture what was going on with my health crisis in St. Louis. His beautiful daughter, Candice, came and stayed with me my first few nights in the hospital.

Much of late August through September was blurry for me. I was very, very sick. I prayed, and prayed, and prayed, but was not sure if I was going to make it. It was such a dark, lonely place. But in the end, prayer won.

Be sure to read it all — and remember to keep Jim in your prayers.  He’s out of the woods, but has a lot farther to go to return to health.  We’re grateful he’s still with us, though.  Welcome back, Jim.

He went through so much. I’m so glad he’s getting better. I hope and pray his recovery is complete. Jim, you are a much needed, much loved warrior in the conservative ranks. Your Gateway Pundit site is one of my top bookmarks. Get better quickly, guy! May God bless you.

While Ed often says “read it all”, this time you really need to. Unbelievable.

I’m enormously grateful to hear this news. After reading about how sick he was, and then hearing nothing for so long after that, I was really afraid he wouldn’t make it.

I’m at a loss for words over this incredible miraculous recovery, except to say prayer works.

God bless you, Jim, and I will continue to keep you in my prayers.
