Friday Update

Great news: Dad gets to leave the hospital today! Right now, Mom is still trying to find a suitable rehab place. Turns out Dad is doing too well for acute rehab, so she must find some place besides a nursing home where he can have at least a week's worth of physical therapy. He's having to leave in an IV for the now prolonged need for his antibiotics and he still needs a health professional to care for his trachea tube.

He should be home after another week!

Please pray for Mom. She is very stressed trying to find a place for him and hasn't had much sleep in the past three weeks.

Mike's doing very well. He's parked on the couch for a few days, but he's healing fast. Abby Kate is keeping him entertained with her books and baby dolls.

I am so happy to hear that Gary is doing so much better. We talk about him here at work quite a bit and everyone misses his smiling face! It has been a long journey, still more to go, but atleast your family is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!! I know it has been a lot to endure the past several weeks, and I wish you all the best. You have a beautiful family and you seem like the perfect daughter...such a great writer! I am so glad to hear the great news as I check your updates.
