Mike's heart rate is back down to normal, and all of the tests have come back normal, so that is very good.  It appears that he may have simply been uncomfortable, and the nurses were able to resolve the issue.

It is also good to note that Mike has been sporadically showing two fingers on request, and also thumb movement on request, during the same evaluation.  So, it appears he is able to differentiate and that the movements are purposeful and not mere reflex actions.

Mike may be ready for a transfer early next week if a Monday-morning CT scan shows that fluid levels have not increased.  Seeing Mike moved to a rehab facility and into a coma stimulation program, as soon as possible, is probably the most important thing we can pray for at this time — and for all the things which will clear the way for that transfer.  More responsiveness and greater consistency in his responsiveness, too, are primary concerns, of course.

Sorry for the delay with yesterday's update.  (The site would not permit the update for some reason.)  

We wish all of you a safe and joyful Easter holiday.  We know you will be lifting Mike and Michelle up.  A dear friend of Mike recently emailed a message that I wanted to share:

It's no accident that this week in particular we celebrate the miracle of life and its victory over death and darkness. God introduced man in a garden and reintroduced him, fully free of the first man's bondage, in another garden. God is in the redeeming business, and the tomb is behind us. All of us.

    Mike and Michelle,

    Our deepest prayers and thoughts have been with you over these past few weeks. Words cannot describe, actions cannot express, the enormous impact Mike had on my life growing up. Mike you are a friend, a role model, you were always there to encourage, support and guide me if the need was ever presented, you were there. And I write this letter, trusting the Lord, that you will read this some day very soon, and know that you truly meant the world to me and so many of my friends. Going through high school there were rough times for some, harder times for others and I know for a fact that many of those times were a lot easier because you reached out in God's love to all of us guys. We have a lot of great memories Mike, and my prayer from the bottom of who I am is that you WILL awake and be there to make many more. Michelle, Jen and I are willing and able to help out in any way, next time in town we would love to come vist with all of you, everything is going to be alright…Love Greg

    It has been very touching for all of us here in Centerville, Ohio to comfort Brian (Mike’s nephew) and to listen as he updates us durring these trying times. The power of Christ will carry us all through this time.

    Dear Mike and Michelle,
    How do you thank someone for being faithful to God? How do we adequately communicate the gratitude and love we feel for the irreplaceable fruit we see in our adult children’s lives because of the two of you? Mike, you were there screaming my sons name at a freshman sporting event that even alot of parents wouldn’t take the time to attend. And you were there in his college days to encourage him as he searched his heart to find God’s plan in his life. His first ministry at DaleHouse in Colorado you visited him as a friend and brother …and you met his futu re wife and prayed for him. Last summer you stood on an island beach at sunset and married them with words given by God to all who were in hearing distance. The Lord’s love through you and Michelle were once again a Voice to all those grown-up guys who gathered together there. Mike, we are screaming your name to Our Lord now. Just like all those you have cried out for….we are calling on God who loves your family more than any of us can imagine. We are at our home in
    Sanibel looking at your picture on the wall with so many of the guys you invested so much in….and we join our hearts with all who love you and are praying. Michelle, you have welcomed our new daughter into your home and life and have been such an example of God’s call on a woman’s life. Thank you. I know that God is meeting you in such a powerful way, as He alone can in our brokenness. In Isaiah 42 it says “a bruised reed He will not break and a smoking flax He will not snuff out…” He does not break or put out our flame or hope….no matter how small it may be. Tommorrow is Easter and I am reminded again that Jesus rose with “healing in His Wings”…..May that be your reality. We love you and your family. All of the Margaron and St. Gean clan are standing with all our hearts in prayer for you. Blessed Easter…..He is Risen. And there IS a “Future and a Hope” in a way none of us can ever imagine for the Zegarski family. love, Patti and Brett Margaron

    Michelle, It was so good to see you on Thursday night!
    “Know that the Lord is God
    It is he who made us, and we are His;
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture…
    For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.” Psalm 100:3&5
    “Cast your cares on the Lord
    and he will sustain you” Psalm 55:22
