therapy continues to go well and we got our final checkup with the ENT on his healed trach site today.  all sealed with just a small scab still about to fall off.  HURRAY!  mike is getting a lot done with all three therapies still.  and his boots (instead of braces) do not impede them working with him at all.  they did start him on the tilt table on monday where they strap him in very much like frankenstein and then tilt him a certain number of degrees at a time as they monitor his blood pressure. he was great (no increased or dropped pressure) and got up to 50? degrees which in person seems very upright honestly.  i forgot how incredibly tall he is.  he liked the feeling of some pressure on his feet and they will try further on ensuing days.  they will also be hopefully bumping up his therapy schedule from 3 days weekly to hopefully 5 days weekly.  pray whether this is the right move and that we get to if it is good for him.  also, at least his pressure wounds are not worsening.  so that is a step in the right direction.  and we see an optometrist on thursday to check on eye function again.  i get regularly overhwelmed and annoyed and irritable and then suddenly feel blessed and provided for and joyfilled.  pray for mike as he endures the roller coaster of my moods which he can’t quite fathom since he isn’t in charge of the details of how all this is working out.  suffice it to say, despite both of our tendencies toward whining, God is showing his goodness in this race marked out for us, michelle

    Mike, yaay for doing so well, I know how badly you want to resume a normal life, (you too,Michelle). I went almost a few months (and I’m still doing it)
    recovery from a head injury from last year(God held me all through it), taking it all in stride,with God. I THINK Angels helped me that day, too(not too focus too much on it).
    When i’m at work, I’ll sometimes sing songs, not about this life, but the life and the world to come. I sometimes forget this life, this messed up world, all knowing we’re prepared for a better one. We are ever ready for that Day, the new World.
    We don’t know what hour, keep watch always.

    Thanks be for therepy, and that you’re doing so well on it. You’ll
    be up and running in no time. Michelle and kids, keep leaning on
    God. Thinking every day about you.
    I’m gald you’re feeling better.
    Remember Michelle: Don’t take everthin’ on your head, space out ,stay calm, remember God’s in control. Take it easy.
