Mike's new bonnet...

We found Mike is amazing spirits this morning. He is so concerned about everyone else and how they are doing that I don't think he has had time to think about his own condition. He was moved from ICU this morning and is now on the neuro floor. He is up and about, and DESPERATELY wanting to use his computer and phone. He read the paper and was so dang happy to see what was going on in Funcie. The Doctor was very pleased with the CT scan that was taken this morning, confirming that all of the tumor was removed.

"...for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

Each of you is an angel. Thanks for bearing us up!

Look forward to a picture of Mike in his bonnet :)


  1. Surely we can fix up the bonnet to match and look as stylish as the hospital gown.

  2. You might want to remember the words of Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Sunday will come..." for hopefully it has. (Ensign, Nov 2006, 28-30).

  3. Thanks, Nancy, for updating this blog so regularly. We check it a couple of times each day. We are so glad that Mike made it through the surgery in such good spirits and is ready to face the road ahead. All of you are in our prayers daily. Also, Mike - BMOTY -it looks like some people will go to any length to miss a board meeting!! Ha!

  4. Mike, Nancy, Andy, Tyler, and Hannah,
    Please count the Reno's in with the rest
    of family and friends praying and thinking
    of you daily. We only heard about Mike on Tuesday and we are so relieved to hear about the good report from his Doctor today.
    Can't wait to see Mike's cute bonnet!
    So glad that Hannah is home with you and glad
    she got her luggage too! Love you all.

  5. Nancy - Thank you for keeping all of us updated. That doesn't surprise me that Mike is up and about already. Has he asked for his Wii yet to do some yoga? I pray for Mike and all of you as well. You are very strong people with a wonderful support system. Looking forward to seeing the bonnet! Take care! Brenda Irelan

  6. I praise God for the success of the surgery. I know there is a long road ahead and ask for God's presence for all of you during this time.

    Also, by the way, Mike missed the Yorktown Properties Board meeting today. We gave him an excused absence!

  7. Nancy,

    I certainly know one angel who is standing by Mike's side as Mike stood by his family in a time of need. I know Matt is so happy that he can help in some small way. He couldn't do that if he were here. :)

    Love and prayers!


  8. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Many cheers from
    We are sending healing vibrations north.
    Fast and Speedy recovery.

  9. I woke up about 1:00 this morning wondering how you all were doing. Thanks for keeping us updated on the blog.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers. You are both such strong people and you will get through this together.

  10. Amen to Tiffany's comment! Perhaps there are two angels on watch!
    So very glad to hear such good news. You are so brave to keep this blog up - it's a very good way to keep in touch with your friends. Thank you. God bless you. And know that so many prayers and best wishes are being sent your way.
