Update on Rep. Bam Carney after election
Dr. John Chowning shares word from Mark Carney about his brother, Rep. John 'Bam' Carney, who is in recovery after having been hospitalized with a severe case of pancreatitis and infection last December.
By Mark Carney
"...Today when I was with Bam he got to participate in the caucus conference call which was the first conference call for the 75 Republican State Representatives. It started at 4:00 and was to be just a short 15 minute call. We had to make it even shorter as the physical therapy team gathered outside the door around 4:10.
"David Osborne, the Speaker of the House was leading the call and Bam spoke up and said "Oz" this is Bam. Bam said I have to get off so I can do PT, but I just wanted to congratulate everyone on their races and thank you all for doing such a great job.
"They were really excited to hear Bam's voice. It was a real special moment that I was glad I got to share with him. Then he worked hard in PT using the walker and sitting in chair for an hour and a half. While in the chair, he used the stretch band with his arms and legs, used small weights to work his arms out, and did more leg exercises.
"Also, while he was in the chair we did a quick shave, washed his hair, read his devotional book and listened to Uncle RC singing some good gospel music. Before we knew it, it was 10 minutes till 6:00. We had prayer together and he then got back in bed. I asked him the one question I always ask as I get ready to leave.
"Have you got this? He shakes his head and we give each other a thumbs up and I walk away thanking God for His ever present watch care over Bam!! Thank you for your continued petitions and prayers for Bam and our family! We are so thankful for each of you."
