2 weeks of rehab. it has proven to be a roller coaster ride. 1 step forward then 2 steps backwards. I am believing that he will soon be up walking and able to come home. The youngest Grandchild graduated from VPK last night. There are still many joys in the midst of all this! Thank you all for your prayers,cards and calls they mean more than you know.

We moved to a rehab/hospital this week. His recovery continues to be slow and difficult as the Dr. predicted. I continue to stay with him every night and sleep on a cot in his room. The last 2 nights we slept almost through the night. They say he will probably be there 3 weeks. His COPD keeps them from being very agressive in his therapy. He still does not want to eat. I bring dinner in for both us each night and we eat and watch wheel of fortune, like we did every night at home. I will be so happy when he is able to come home.

Jim is continuing to recover in the hospital and hopefully he will be well enough to go to a rehab facility soon,so they can get him on his feet and walking. It was not suppose to be this way and I can not imagine why it happened like this but I am trusting that God will give him a complete recovery and that he will soon be home again.

Surgery did not go well last week, actually it was 10 days ago today that he went in for the new TAVR procedure to replace his aortic valve, he was suppose to be out of surgery in 2 hours and home in 5 days. The new procedure did not work and they had to do open heart surgery, he was in surgery 9 hours and today is the 10th day in ICU I have spent every night in there with him just coming home every day or every other day to shower and change clothes. Thanks for all the prayers, I firmly believe that is the only reason he is still here. Drs. say recovery will be slow and difficult so please continue to pray for a speedy and complete recovery.
