i got the chance to attend a Young Life retreat and enjoy good teaching, good friends, and good food.  mike’s parents spent every waking minute with Mike, McKaela and Eli while i went AWOL this weekend.  it did wonders for that crankiness of mine and i believe they all enjoyed themselves as well.  mike is doing better now than he ever has since this all began.  he has been so chatty this week i have actually asked him to keep his thoughts to himself or share them with someone on the phone–anyone beside me (i can’t hide that cranky week).  unfortunately he did specifically prefer my attention until i ducked out of the house.  but he has been seriously impressing me.  he has a whole bunch of ideas he wants to convey and many are understandable and conversational.  sometimes he is harder to understand though and sometimes i am not sure if he is confused, experiencing the wrong words coming out or if he is really a bit crazy.  he has shown so much coherence and comprehension that when he does throw a weird, out of context sentence out at me i don’t know where it came from or if it is significant that he didn’t make sense.  but it is a very exciting time, crazy sentences and all.

Please Do pray for therapy.  he was evaluated and began therapy through the home care agency that worked with mike in the fall but they do not have a speech therapist available at this time (due to a nationwide shortage).  you cannot have more than one agency work with a patient so we will need to dump that agency altogether to get speech any time soon.  i am waiting on some info from marianjoy before i go to a new agency altogether for home therapy for speech, occupational and physical.  he has been getting the physical therapy this past week since they began that before they realized there was no speech therapist available.  but pray that we get all of that organized and working smoothly.  he is doing so well right now i would hate to squander too much time.

praise God for his goodness.  he puts on quite a show!    michelle
