mike was able to come home tonight. i was so excited that he was able to say thanks to our sweet nurses himself as we rolled out. and we got him resettled in his own room again. now all we have to do is yank all the sticky tape off of him and scrub off the adhesive. thanks so much to all who stole a chance to visit him over the holiday weekend. it is hard calling for babysitters all the time and even getting to see him for a few hours without dragging the kids still leaves long gaps for him. he cried when i showed up to take him home. i think he sometimes just gets a bit overwhelmed but i am taking it as him really appreciating the gift it is for us to be able to have him at home. so hopefully all will stay calm and home is where he will stay. we rest in your prayers, michelle

    Reading your updates brings your family into ours. Whenever you bare your soul, your transparency fills us with humility and a perspective that only someone in the midst of turmoil can offer. It is offered with the backdrop of faith in the knowing and in the unknowing. We long to draw the curtains back more and try to understand what we do not understand. We pray for more grace, more strength, more hope, more of anything when you feel spent and lacking. For now, he is home and each homecoming brings another closure of the last stressful event. And in that, may you have peace in the present.

    One thing about turmoil: it reminds us how amazing daily life is. We are so thankful Mike is home again.

    Sorry I was out of pocket and unable to help you today. I know that the opportunity will arise again and that you will call me! You remain close in my heart and prayers every day.

    We are so grateful to know that Mike is back at home. Did they ever discover the reason for the seizure? Prayerfully that was the last one! I have often thought about the verse you mentioned about the Spirit interceeding for us even when we cannot. I’m in awe that our God thought even about that need in our lives. Thanks for your encouragement to us through yet another “bump in the the road.” Here’s to an uneventful Christmas celebration at home! Love ya, Barb

    Dear Michele,
    I was going down the prayer list and realized that I hadn’t checked your blog for a week. I was so suprised at yet another thing you all have had to go through. I am sorry for your set back, but glad to know that Mike has not regressed far. I pray that Christmas will be an amazing time of health, family and growth in Him, at home, together.
    I am so thankful that you share your heart and remind us of how important the things are that we take for granted really are. Your courage and your faith are such a great witness.
    I pray that God just do a mighty work in Mike, that all your patence and diligence will pay off and that God will recieve all the glory for the work He has done in Mike and in you. You are a blessing, Michele!

    glad mike is home. saddened and frustrated about the seizure and hospital stay. this last month we had a sermon series on prayer. one week was on when God seems slow to answer, or when his answer is to wait (something like that). anyway, i’ve always struggled in this area and now with what seems like a slow recovery for mike and another good friend (a young mom) who appears to be in the final round of a fight against what was supposed to be a highly treatable form of cancer . . . i’ve been in a bit of a one-sided shouting match with God. jeff and i were talking about this and he pointed out that mike has made it much farther than anybody thought he would when this first happened. he is able to be at home with you all and able to communicate much more than they thought he would. and he is mostly free from pain. these are great blessings. i want more! so what do we pray? give us patience? give us faith? give us grace? i guess all of the above. we will continue to pray.
