Update - Monday Night

Hey all, Lizzy again. I just got an e-mail from Kat's best friend, Cindy, and I just wanted to update you all.

At this point Michael is awake and off any support machines. He's a little confused about what happened to him but that's pretty typical. At this point they are still trying to figure out what course to plot. There may be some surgery next week, but they're not yet sure. At this point it looks like he'll be in the hospital for a while.

Right now I’d say our dear friend is afraid to be relieved yet, and not able to wrap her brain around the possibilities of what comes after this, but is taking baby steps and is remarkable courageous.

So keep praying, keep loving, keep supporting. I know Kat was just amazed at how many people have posted about her and Michael, and I know when she gets a chance she's reading the comments and I'm sure they mean so much to her.

Father - Thank you so much for all you have done... thank you for bringing Michael this far. We know the road is long and we're not sure what curves and turns it will take, but we know that you will be with Kat & Michael every step of the way. Please continue to touch him and heal him, and continue to bring comfort to Kat & the girls. Thank you... Amen.

(I just need to add a note that there must be some serious mojo in Kat's blog because the two times I've posted here I've hit the spell-check button and it says "No Misspellings Found." That NEVER happens on my blog)

I am so happy to see this blog. I have worried and prayed all day. The very last thing I remember last night was praying for Michael.
I know he is not out of the woods yet, but still this is very encouraging.

Just know all will be well!

Continuing to pray for all of you! Kat, be sure to get rest when you can. I know from personal experience how easy it is to get run down. It sounds like you might be in for a long haul so I'll tell you what Darrell's doctor told me: Go home when you can. Be sure to eat. Take sleeping medication if you're having trouble sleeping. Be easy on yourself.

Oh my word. I had no idea!! About either one of them! I've been so out of touch with all of my followings. So sad to come back to this.

I am glad things are looking up. You can bet I will include Kat, Micheal and family in my prayers.

Micheal is a very lucky man!!

Praise the Lord!!

Love to all...

Continuing to pray for Kat and Michael--thinking about them and the girls constantly.

(and--Hey Lizzy--if you want to temporarily lend my Kat's password, I'm good at rearranging Project Playlist music so we might all read the prayer with something other than Vertigo playing ;). Just a thought....I'd help in any way I can!)
