Sunday Night

Hey guys... I am SO sorry for not updating. My Gert's been really sick - flu AND strep - and I just didn't get to do much of anything.

Good news! Michael is OUT of ICU!!! He's in a normal room, not hooked up to anything!!! WOO HOO!!! His memory is slowly getting a little better. Tomorrow he will be inundated by a bazillion different specialist, so he'll probably be WIPED OUT by the end of the day. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy... makes ME tired thinking about it!!

They're not sure yet when he'll be coming home, and not sure yet about when he'll be back at work. But all in all things are really good.

The girls got to see their Dad today, which was good... though they found the hospital Cafeteria WAY better than visiting Dad :)

I think that's the general gist of what Kat told me. I'm a little fuzzy. But I guess for the most part it's safe to say no news is good news!

That is wonderful news, Lizzy. Thanks for keeping us posted.

I'm sure it helped Michael to see his daughters, even if they were more interested in the cafeteria.

We'll continue to pray that the specialists and therapists will help to bring about a complete recovery for Michael.

No ICU, no tubes and wires, lots of therapy...these are all very good things on the road to recovery.

Still in need of prayers for love and support, though, I'm sure. Kat, you are never far from my thoughts.

Cafeteria food? Yuck!
