Well, I did just speak to Helen a couple minutes ago. She and Chris were able to visit Max this morning and when they got to the room, he was sitting up in a chair and was doing really well. It was really nice to be able to talk to him and she said he just looks really good. He had a bit of a longer, harder night that was desirable, but he's looking good and if they transfer him out of ICU to another room, he'll have more quiet and restful sleep. They DID stand him up once last night and that was tough on him, but he's sleeping now and he plans to try to walk around a bit after lunch and Helen and Chris will go visit with him some more. In general, it is all encouraging news at this point. Continued thanks for your prayers and support.
We hope we'll have many contributors from our congregation. I imagine we will have regular and occasional contributors. If you'd like to contribute a poem, a photo, a devotion or anything that you believe enhances our life together, please contact pastor Phil to learn about posting.
