We never know what a day will bring.
- brought a smile as Dad kissed Mom goodbye and she attempted her first real smile!
- brought news that tomorrow we are moving to Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Center! To say we will be glad to get out of the hospital is an understatement! She moved from Neuro ICU to a room on Christmas Day and now on New Year’s Day she will move to rehab! We thank Jesus for this step forward.
- brought tears for the first time. While we all have cried quite a bit in the last 17 days, we have not seen real emotion from Mom. Today it came. And we are thankful for the start of the healing process not just of her body but of her heart and soul! There is a LOT to grieve! But we have also been able to share some of the miracles, joys and strengths the Lord has sent to us during the days that she doesn’t really remember.
- brought joy as we looked through your milkshake pictures! Multiple times today Dad asked me if I had seen this picture or that picture. Pictures came in from around the world and we showed them all to Mom. Thank you for being a part of the healing process! And for making us smile! What a gift!
Keep praying for Mom. Every day brings about new physical challenges and she needs continued healing from both surgeries and physical strength for the road ahead!
We will post pictures soon of the milkshake challenge. Thank you all again!
Happy New Year!
