while our visit to marianjoy today was marked by the mayhem only a few small wailing, moody children can muster up we did find good news awaiting us.  mike has not had a fever at all today.  i did not hear any news regarding what might have caused the fever for the last 2 days but i am relieved it has subsided.  mike is still being plagued by a lot of spasticity in his limbs to varying degrees throughout the day.  and his conjunctivitis in his eyes is resisting progress in my opinion.  but these are merely distractions on the road to recovery.  i am still in the midst of chaos and excitement in preparing for mike’s trip home!  keep us in prayer and thank you for the assurance that you are all doing just that.   

grace and peace,  michelle   (PS… even when kids are behaving badly, they are so stinking cute in halloween costumes it still makes them loveable… mckaela was a cow and eli was a bear)

    Awww, I bet there were a really cute little cow and bear! I hope Mike was able to enjoy them!

    I will continue to pray for the family and hope you will have your loving husband back under your roof soon. Home will speed his recovery, I am sure.

    What Great news! It’s amazing to hear that Mike is coming home. We’ve been praying that all goes well these coming weeks, I’m sure it will be nice to be moving forward. We miss you guys out here and wish we could come see Mike in person. Tell him we said hello. We’re looking forward to seeing both of you in December when we come through. Keep hanging in!

    Yay-I love the phrase, “mere distractions!” The roadblocks the enemy puts up are just that, “mere,” compared with the power of what God can do! The Gervels continue to lift you ALL up in the days ahead!

    Wow…only a few days away…Awesome to hear that the fever has subsided…..I can only imagine that you are moving forward in fear and trepidation and excitement and apprehension….but not without God’s constant guidance!!! We continue to pray day after day – we know that God will make a way.
