Mark moved and communication questions answered
update on Mark 6/28:
Life gets busy in a hospital and we have had ups and downs, but are trying to focus on the positive! Javon & I take turns traveling the hour and a half trips back and forth each day to the hospital. We have so appreciated the loving hospitality of Makoto and Anna for the last ten days, but plan to move to a hotel a few blocks from the hospital tomorrow.
Mark was moved to a general floor on Monday which sounds encouraging, but can be scary to learn new nurses and procedures.
He has a lovely view of the skywalk and overlooks the river
(I don't think he's impressed:). God blessed us with a sweet Christian nurse - she's so kind!
Mark is still unable to form words yet other than hi and hey... But at times he does really try to talk. He has three therapy sessions each day and we try to do ROM exercises on his right side 4x each day also. His right leg seems to be responding much more quickly than his right arm/hand. Another lesson in patience...a reminder this is not a 50 yard dash! It's a cross-country journey...praying we can all keep the faith as we travel forward!
II Tim 4:7
pneumonia: resolving, less coughing and less secretions, praise god!
right hand: noticed a slight twitch in arm yesterday but it hasn't recreated today, no finger/wrist/elbow/shoulder strength yet
right leg: strength is increasing, attempting standing today showed the nerve's are still diminished and he couldn't fully set it on the floor
verbal: he was less talkative by the end of the week but still occasionally using hi/hey/and some garbled speech
God has been faithful and journeyed before us and is holding Mark with His strong right arm! IS 41:10,13 Trusting Him!
You have no idea how much we lean on your prayer support...
God bless each of you until we meet again:) We love you!
Mark & Lori
