Amazing friends are an essential part of this process. We feel so blessed with all of the outpouring of service we have received. Today my parents and sisters came by and we were able to pull food out of our fridge and have a feast. Mike is eating so well (ravenously to be exact... steroids will do that to you.) Thanks to everyone for food... Do all of you know our friend Bonnie Farrell? Well, she happens to make the best cookies in the world. Mike was so delighted with those today :) Hannah has spoiled us with some of her good cooking. I don't know where she learned to cook so well, but oh my! The boys were both here this evening and Mike seems to be loving having the whole family together. He lies on the couch and listens to everything that is said... even things we don't want him to hear!
Right now Mike is laying on Hannah's lap and talking about all of the board meetings he is going to miss this week. He thinks the boards can't run without him. As hard as it will be... we WILL keep him home and quiet.
Mike confirmed with our neighbor that he could mow our grass for a few weeks, but today Dan Reno showed up with a lawn mower and did the job. As he was mowing the neighbor called and said he was on his way. Mike did tell Dan that "Mormon grass" shouldn't be mowed on the Sabbath :)
Again, we are grateful beyond words for your love and support. We know many fasted today in our behalf and we have felt the outpouring of the Spirit from that humbling experience.
Mike lives to read the comments on this blog so KEEP THEM COMING.
