more than enough for today.

the graciousness and goodness of God today has certainly been more than enough.  i am rejoicing today for some wonderful improvements of my man that have been absolute gifts from Jesus - and because of the prayers of so many.

let me take time to give glory to the One who "holds everything together by the word of [His] immoveable power."

so, "i'll sing a song of praise". . .

ken's been on the trach collar now since 8 o'clock this morning.  he's doing well on it, and attending trauma doctor thinks he'll stay on until she sees that he needs to go on the vent for a little bit to rest. horray for ventilator standby mode.  as grateful as i am for its lifesaving purpose these past weeks, i so love seeing this thing collect dust in the corner.

he's been sitting totally upright in his bed for hours now.  this is another great excercise because it's helping clear his lungs, and it's just plain better to be sitting than laying when you've been laying for close to a month.

"they will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor."  isaiah 61:3

according to his nurses, he's improving at communicating to them with nods and shakes of his head.

"for this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end."  psalm 48:14

attending trauma doctor thinks he could maybe move to the trauma step-down unit early next week.  let me tell you - unreal.

"The Lord is a warrior; Yahweh is His name."  exodus 15:3

"But you have raised a banner for those who fear you -- a rallying point in the face of attack.  now rescue your beloved people.  answer and save us by your power." psalm 60:4-5
