we had some sweet old friends over last night telling stories and making michael smile as he listened.  it has been a little while since i saw him smile.  he still looked asleep but apparently he sits quietly waiting for a punchline.  for the most part he is still not communicating much–a sentence or 2 a day.  but that is improvement.  he is discharged from active therapy due to lack of participation so we are responsible for exercising him ourselves every day to retain his range.  he is experiencing some more pain than usual with episodes of muscle rigidity.  it sometimes makes him cry out a bit or moan but usually passes in about 10 minutes.  mckaela sat with me and sang to him during one of these moments today. 

every day has its trials–there is no reason to pretend otherwise–but “his grace is sufficient for me”, for us.  amen and thanks.
