Evening peace

Dear Friends,

As I am sitting here in Nan's room this evening I am once again very grateful to our Heavenly Father. Nan is now resting quietly after a very big day. As I have mentioned before Nan sat in a reclining chair twice today which has tired her out. A plan is afoot now to do dialysis sometime tomorrow and also to remove the ventilator. We will see what tomorrow brings. We have the wonderful pleasure of having Roger and Carol Peden here with us this evening. They started driving here yesterday and arrived this afternoon. How good it is to have long time friends to visit with and to interact with Nan. Nan definitely knows they are here. She had a great morning with Roxanna too.

We hope for good things tomorrow and for a turn in the kidney numbers. That is certainly what I am going to be praying for tonight. She is so beautiful as she sleeps and her breathing rate is good tonight and the volume of her air is excellent.

Our nurse tonight is great and Amy was great today. These nurses are so professional and on top of any thing that happens. Now there is talk that if she can get off the respirator she will be moving to a regular room in a couple days. At first the talk was that she might be in this room for a month. I like the shorter duration if its good for her.

A couple people have suggested that I mention the addresses that donations can be sent to again since it was several blogs back that I listed them. I want to express my appreciation for the help that has been given our family. Simply put it allows me to remain here at her side when she and I would normally be working in California. Here are the addresses:

Tracy SDA Church 2025 Holly Drive Tracy, CA 95376 or Bob Miller, Church Treasurer 161 Ramona Way Tracy, CA 95376 Denver First SDA Church 6200 W. Hampden Ave Denver, CO 80227 Please make contributions out to SDA Church and on a separate paper put: for Nan's Recovery Fund or Family in Crisis Fund. No money is taken out of the contributions. All $$ are sent to Discovery Bay for Nan's Recovery Fund. --

So far we are doing OK on all fronts. Nan is making remarkable progress and its been two weeks today since her surgery. Thank you for caring enough to pray and to drop emails to us. Your prayers have touched Nan, they have touched the caregivers here and they have touched our family.

So until morning


Tim and family
