good news… our doctor called today to announce that mike’s fever is no more and his pneumonia has cleared up so he is scheduled to head home this friday!  he will still be receiving IV antibiotics for a little while and he will be on a perpetual feeding tube to be more sensitive to his digestive system (as opposed to using his feeding tube in meal spurts 4 times daily).  so we will be learning a few new things and will adjust.  he still seemed pretty unresponsive during my visit last night but hopefully time will yield a more “entertaining” michael.  i laughed at the front page story of the naperville sun yesterday with a full page cover story on a family dealing with some medical difficulties.  the neighborhood banded together and has kept them well-fed for 3 weeks.  i am so glad their generosity was being highlighted and praised but it paled in comparison to our 8 months of meals and love, and support.  so thank you thank you thank you for the incredible miracle you continue to share with our whole family.  may your graciousness be returned to you in abundance as well!

wahoo, michelle

    I know for sure what to mention aloud tomorrow when asked what I am thankful for!

    Hooray! Mike will be lifted up around tables across this nation tomorrow as we thank God for our mulitude of blessings. Of course the Z clan is counted among those blessings. Will Rafael still be Mike’s caregiver? I pray you and your little ones have a blessed day Thanksgiving.
