Krista is making some really good but difficult progress. Even with a cold, she wanted to get off the couch, and go out to lunch. It was nice to be able to all go together in the old Windstar that my parents are giving to us. That is such a wonderful gift, as we had wanted to get a minivan but it was impossible with all that we've been through. Krista was able to walk from the house to the car, but after that she needed to use the wheelchair. After lunch, she said that she was still feeling good, so we took her to a store to find some curtain rods we've been needing. Apparently that was her limit, as she felt wiped out as we left. She rested and slept most of the rest of the day.

It's great to see some of that old spunk coming back in her. It is often discouraging to her how much muscle mass she lost in the hospital, but she's not going to let that stop her from trying to get it back, little by little. It's going to take a very long time to regenerate, and that the long-term trial is wearying. Please keep her in your prayers, that she might remember the big picture of her progress when she goes through setbacks that come and go.

By they way, thank you Hodson and Rodkey families for the meals yesterday and today. We have been eating very well thanks to your wonderful cooking!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
(James 1:2-4)
