Mike only had a 1/2 hr. of therapy this morning. He was worried that he would lose all of the muscle tone that he has built this past week so he did exercises on his own all day. He stayed in his chair all day... No naps! We spent some time outside in the beautiful sunshine, visited a friend who had a beautiful new baby, and watched some college football...
Tonight was Mike's first shower in a week and a half. He said it felt glorious. I have been giving him good sponge baths every night, but there is nothing like a shower!!! He smells so good and feels so fresh and ready to sleep.
He would love to see visitors tomorrow after lunch. He has no therapy at all tomorrow. We look forward to the staples coming out at the beginning of next week. Showers next week should be even lovlier :)
Mike's brother is showing signs of improvement. We are so pleased with this great news. He is still on a ventilator, but is getting stronger after the surgery. Thank you all for your prayers in his support. This has truly been a trying week for our family.
We feel such gratitude for each beautiful day. We had great conversations today. It was wonderful. Our prayer tonight is that all of us have a good day tomorrow as we rest from our labors.
