Hello friends,
     It has been a cold week for us, but today it warmed up a little.  I don't remember how many times I heard, "It's really nice today".  I even said it myself and the temp was around 25 with a "feel like" in the high teens!  Not even warm enough to melt some of the snow we had.  The kids will be wanting to wear shorts when we get home.  
     Speaking of home, we got a tentative discharge date of Feb. 3rd today.  So, possibly we will get to come back home, that would be nice after almost 5 months away.  There are days when I feel like I will never again see my home or the people there that I miss so much, but the end is near.  Wow, I just remembered that my New Years verse started out with those very words!  

  The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.   I Peter 4:7-10

     We had a care conference today for Micah and talked about many things.  There are so many things to consider with bringing Micah home and none of them any thing that we want to even think about.   The Dr. (no surprise to me) did not get the response to the pump that he was hoping for.  There is some good from it:  Micah is more relaxed, tone is better, vitals are better and he has been able to get off of some of his meds.  We will be having another CT done this week just to make sure that there is nothing amiss that would keep Micah from having the progress that they expected.  Honestly, I think they will find nothing, but we will wait and see.  
     I don't know why we are having to go through all this or when it will all end, but I do know that there is a purpose.  God has a purpose for Micah's life and this period of his life is going to be a huge part of that.  
     I will blog again in a couple of days after the CT results come in.  May the Good Lord bless you all richly, thank you for your prayers and cards!


  1. We will keep praying for your family - I think something will be coming for your family from FWC's 21 Days of Focus prayer and fasting. We are trusting God to move in ways we didn't see coming. We can't wait to see you guys again!

  2. You may have already heard this, but Sunday 1/10 Pastor Jereme said that 2009 was a year when faith was tested and 2010 will be a year that faith will be rewarded. When he said that that I automatically thought of you and your family. I believe what he said with all my heart. Your faith has stayed the course and maybe even strengthened through this ordeal. My soul keeps repeating what God told me when Micah's accident happened. HE WILL BE OK ! Love you and still praying. Tony & Tina
