mike has actually been doing ok with pain since surgery. he still requires the drugs but he says it’s not bad now. one week down, 5 to go till standing duty. the kids are enjoying the canvas of the casts–one for each of them. and mike enjoys their attention. his trach hole has not fully closed but still gets slowly smaller all the time. his dr said that if necessary it is possible to surgically close holes that do not do so naturally but he would wait a few months for that option. i don’t think it will take that long since it is still making progress. so nothing to complain about. lots to praise. thanks for joining us in all kinds of weather, michelle
(oh, and there is a food link up by the categories for photos and home and all that for those interested and local!)

    You continue to be in our prayers. IWe missed the National Young Life staff conference and we were wondering if there was a way to get our hands on the video that had been made.

    Good to spend time with you, Mike and the kids yesterday. Their little spirits are amazing, and it warmed my heart to see them so happy. You are teaching me much about living in the moment and looking for today’s gift in the smallest of blessings. Thank you for showing me how!
