We are thankful to have made it through another week. The second half of the week was an improvement over the first and we are grateful! It has truly been a blessing and a gift to have my sister Sarah and her youngest Macie here this week! Mom was so pleased to see them. We have determined that physical, occupational and speech therapy are great but Macie therapy is the best kind to get!  We will be sad to see them go but so grateful for having these days together. And we can’t be too sad as tonight my other sister Elisabeth and her husband Ben arrived for a couple of days. Mom asked multiple times today when they were scheduled to arrive.  So thankful for family as we walk through this journey.FullSizeRender(2)

Thank you for praying with us over insurance and the next step for Mom. Dad was in conversations most of yesterday trying to determine what our options are and has done a great job advocating for Mom. Dad has sent in an appeal but unless we hear differently in the next day or two Mom will be moved on Monday to a skilled nursing facility. Our prayer is that we could stay one more week at Cardinal Hill before moving but we are trusting the Lord on this one.

Today Dad and I were able to visit a couple of different places and we are so grateful to Jesus for providing some wonderful people to help guide us through this process. One of the places we looked at seems like it would be a good fit for our situation so we are thankful. While the ride has been rough at times I think we all have peace that the Lord is leading and He has taken very good care of Mom so far and won’t stop now. If you have ever been in a situation similar to ours you know transition is hard even if it means you are moving in the right direction. We would appreciate your prayers as we anticipate this next move. Thank you for your expressed love through cards, e-mails, flowers, gifts, food, helping clean our house, visits, etc. We are so touched and blessed by the continued outpouring of love.

We would have one request for this coming weekend for those of you who live in the area. In anticipation of our move on Monday and based on how exhausted Mom was today after a hard week we would ask that there be no visits this weekend to allow her to truly rest. As she moves through difference phases of recovery the exhaustion level of interacting has increased. Thank you for your understanding! We are thankful for each one of you!

  1. Dear Anna, I understand your concerns and nervousness and anxiety for Katy’s moving because I was there where you have been getting through. Your post refreshed my memory in that time. Please say hello to Pastor Stan, Katy and all family behalf me. Pastor Stan and Katy have been spiritual parents to Sung and Chelsea as they were feeding and nurturing Sung and Chelsea Do with the Word of God and prayer for many years. Kara, daughter of Sung and Chelsea is now 3 and half years old and Caleb 1 year old. We all have been praying for you all. I have been so grateful for the strong faith and ministry of Katy and Stan have changed our lives and also so many people around the world. We all love you all very much with our huge gratitude.

  2. Some Julian of Norwich quotes:

    “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”

    “The greatest honor we can give Almighty God is to live gladly because of the knowledge of his love.”

    “He said not ‘Thou shalt not be tempested, thou shalt not be travailed, thou shalt not be dis-eased’; but he said, ‘Thou shalt not be overcome.”

    “If there is anywhere on earth a lover of God who is always kept safe, I know nothing of it, for it was not shown to me. But this was shown: that in falling and rising again we are always kept in that same precious love.”
    ― Julian of Norwich


  3. Thank you for the update. We will continue to pray she gains strength and that you find the right place for her. No, transitions, especially this kind, are never easy.


  4. Been where you are and know the anxiety that changes create. Be sure, first and foremost, that the facility you choose specializes in stroke rehab.Bonnie

  6. It is my prayer right now that Katy is getting some rest and enjoying the family this weekend. I am continuing to pray for strength, courage, and healing. I pray wise decisions will be made in the days ahead. I pray for a smooth transition whenever it happens. I do pray it will be in God’s perfect timing. You all continue to be in my daily thoughts and prayers.
