Gratitude!

Thank You!

During the past month I've learned that God listens to prayers, and that I am surrounded by many loving people. Thank you, My Friends for sending your loving thoughts, prayers and support. After many long and painful hours of waiting and praying, Jim was taken off of the ventilator successfully approximately three weeks ago.

After spending a week in a Critical Care Unit, Jim was transferred to a rehabilitation facility because his muscles have atrophied after being on life support. He can't move his legs, but his arms are now "working" but weak. The doctors are thrilled with his progress, and have called his recovery "miraculous". Having been the recipient of your love and kindness, I've absolutely no doubt that miracles DO happen - I'm married to one!!! 

It's going to be a very long road "back" - we still face many health issues and obstacles. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I am eternally grateful for your loving thoughts and support.

May you be surrounded by angels with colorful wings!
