Here’s the “Dad update” for this morning…They moved him out of ICU into a regular room (on the floor). My mom said he seems more tired there, because it’s louder, but hopefully that won’t hinder his progress. She’s not sure how long he’ll stay there before they’ll be ready to discharge him, and we also don’t know where he’ll go when he’s discharged. Lots of stuff to figure out! Not much more to update than that. He’s still about the same as far as opening his eyes, etc. We would still appreciate prayers, especially that he’ll be able to respond to more commands soon.
On a totally unrelated note, I am reading Created to Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl. (Thanks, MomR, for letting me borrow it! Did you know I stole it from the bookshelf during the wedding weekend?) I’m not too far into it yet, but so far it’s a wonderful book. She has great, godly, practical advice for women about how to be the kind of wife God intended. Not only that, but it’s an easy read. I highly recommend it!
In the book she talks about the importance of being joyful, and that thankfulness leads to joy. Well, just for the record, I’m SO thankful for my amazing husband. He’s a wonderful mate (he’s patient, understanding, loving, loads of fun and laughter, willing to help around the house, and more!), a super daddy (again, loads of fun and laughter, but also committed to consistent discipline), and a hard worker (superb work ethic – Steelcase loves him!). He’s been so supportive during this time with my dad in the hospital. I love it that he’s willing to love my family like they’re his own…I’m sorry if all that praise makes you uncomfortable, honey, but it’s all true!
Oh, that all women could have a husband like mine!
