Michele is doing great. This morning she had an abdomen surgery and was able to partially close up (just waiting on swelling to decrease to finish the job). Slight fever today, but keeping it controlled. She is really on the road to recovery we believe, and continue to be thankful for everyone's prayers and well wishes. Nephews Steven and Jeff arrived early this am. Teresa now has Sasha (Michele's puppy) and she is with her puppy friends - thanks Teresa. Teresa will be opening an account at Vectra Bank, where her and Michele work, for Michele's recovery. So many people have asked how they can help. Of course all the prayers seem to be what we need the most. In time, when we get her home there will be lots to do to help, so thanks so much for all your offers. We will let you know when Steveie D. needs something. Right now its just day by day and hoping to get her out of the ICU and transferred to the step-down unit. They are not allowing flowers in the ICU, but thanks so much Cafe Diva for the gorgeous arrangement. The boys' hotel room really needs a smell good!
I forgot to report that yesterday they exercised her lungs by allowing her to breath on her own for a bit. This is how she will gain her strength. River just took Zach and Corbin to work out - they need to expend some energy. I am just watching our camp here in the corner of the ICU waiting room. It looks like a yard sale here. We are sharing the room with the family of the young women from Denver who lost her unborn baby in a hit and run. Pray for this family as well. Tragedy's like these are not wished for on anyone, but I have seen so many people come together in family love and faith in this room for healing.
