mike was more awake today than i have seen him in a week.  he even mustered up a smile for me to take a few pictures of he and McKaela laying next to each other.  the encouraging word is that it may just take a few more days to get the marianjoy transfer set into place.  many have asked me if i am glad about heading to marianjoy and i certainly am.  i have truly felt blessed by mike’s stay at manorcare for its excellent staff and its mindboggling closeness to our house.  but mike at marianjoy in wheaton is a vital step closer to mike coming home so we are eager for that goal.

a side note…every once in a while i shave mike’s head down to a fuzz–mostly just as a cleanliness issue–it’s easier to wash his head without the hair.  however, when he is low on hair his scars from his head surgeries show more and may give visitors a jolt at first.  just keep it in mind–he is doing great, all the scars have healed well and his hair does a fine job of covering them when allowed.  but they are certainly disconcerting–the man has indeed been through a lot.  regarding the sunken in area–i have been told that mike can only have the surgery to put a plate back in to complete his skull in that area once he has been infection free for 6 weeks.  i don’t know that he has been healthy that long since this whole thing began.  at 4 weeks we can call and make some preparations for the surgery and pray he keeps germs at bay.  but that will be a minor goal on the agaenda.  he is not compromised in any way by not having the plate in yet though it will be nice when it is able to be taken care of.

thanks for hanging in there with us, by God’s grace,     michelle

    Mike’s progress is just great!! If this keeps up he will be playing in his own golf benefit. Keep it up Mike. I’m excited to be able to help out Mike and his family on the 14th!

    Hey Michelle:

    Thanks for the update. So you say Mike’s head is lop-sided? (just a little humor.) Can you post the picture of Mike and McKaela? For us far away (Colorado), it would be helpful to see Mike smiling with his daughter. Marianjoy will be a good next step. Keep hanging in there. The wings of the Lord are broad and strong, they can both carry you, Mike and the kids and also shelter you all from above. Rest my dear one! Rest in Him!

    Thanks for keeping us informed Michelle (and always in such an interesting, well-written way– I feel like I’m reading a good book when I read your posts!) Lucy enjoyed meeting Mike last week. I honestly thought she was going to jump out of my arms and pounce on him, so I think he was probably ready for her to leave when we did! (For those of you reading this, Lucy is a baby, not a dog). We will continue to pray for Mike to remain free from infection. We love you Zegarski family….

    As always I am amazed by your strength and faith. We continue to pray for all of you. For peace, strength and wisdom. We pray that Mike will be back at Marionjoy soon! Prayers that he will be home soon! Prayers that he stays infection free! God Bless you all!!

    Love and prayers,

    Once again, thanks for the updates. We love hearing about the amazing things God is doing!

    Hey Mike and Michelle,

    I am coming to visit on behalf of the Ingalls family. I’ll be in Napervlle that last Thursday in October. I was thinking of making a film with our video camera so you can see what Rob is up to. Mama will have to run fast to keep up with his many exploits!

    I was wondering if you typically have a DVD or VCR player in your many venues? Let me know. If not it is OK, I can just show it on the camer on the teeny tiny screen!

    I look forward to seeing you and bringing “Rob, the movie, version 17.0. Until then, you remain in our prayers daily.

    I’m so glad to hear that Mike continues to do well. May the Lord daily sustain all of you with his grace and love. Always lifting you all up in my prayers.
