mike went in for a video swallow test today to see how well he protected his airway when swallowing. they watch the substance as it goes down his throat on x-ray. unfortunately, a lot still made it down his trachea instead of his esophagus which means he will have to keep up the swallowing practice and try again further down the line. he is certainly frustrated and angry. but we made a point to count our blessings and remember that today is not the last chance. he will get there still. pray for encouragement, and persevering swallowing practice. and may the recent pictures encourage you as you pray as they have reminded us of the daily treasures we enjoy, michelle

    Sending prayers your way. I will pray for more practice and that the next time you go in all will be well. I am so excited to hear how much progress you have made Mike. We keep praying here! I haven’t heard how the worship nights are going (if you are still having them). Hope they are going well. Take care of yourselves and know we are covering you in prayer daily. God Bless!!

    Love and prayers,

    “Let all who take refuge in you be glad;
    let them ever sing for joy.
    Spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
    For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous;
    you surround them with your favor as with a shield.”
    Ps. 5:11-12

    Lord, we wait expectantly for You and your faithful work in answering our prayers. Thank you for spreading your protection over the Z family, for blessing them and for surrounding them with your favor as with a shield. We love You and rejoice in You. Amen.

    Thanks for sharing pictures! We are coming to Naperville in a couple of weeks and definitely are planning to see you. We are so excited about all the good news and progress for Mike. We thanked the Lord last night and will continue to pray!
