Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

On Saturday we were treated to one of the worst blizzards many people around here can remember - including my 89 year old Grandma!  Sunday we were completely blocked in until a family friend was able to get to us with a Bobcat.  However, even though we would have been able to get out of town, most of the highways between here and the city where Papa is in the hospital were reporting that travel was not recommended.  So obviously we were not able to get to the hospital on Saturday or Sunday.  My mom was able to talk to Papa on the phone once and then he even called us on Sunday!  That was a surprise!!

So after two days of not seeing him at all, my mom went in today.  She said that he has been taken off of oxygen completely!  And all his IV's and whatever other wires he was attached to have been removed as well.  That is simply amazing to me as just one week ago he was in a medically induced coma and was on a ventilator doing most of the breathing for him!!!  A walking miracle for sure!

Well, speaking of walking - he actually is not doing much of that yet.  He is still very weak but is slowly and steadily improving.  The physical therapists were there twice today and got him up to walk a short distance.  At one point he was seated in a wheelchair and asked mom if it was locked.  She said that it was and asked if he wanted it unlocked, which he did.  He managed to take himself for a little spin into the hallway!  Progress!

The complaint of the day is that he is not eating enough, so we are praying that he will gain a bigger appetite so that his strength will come back more quickly...


God is AWESOME! We will continue praying for his healing! Keep us posted on his progress!
