She opened her beautiful blue eyes

Dear Friends,

I am writing from the hospital waiting room for ICU. When we arrived we found Nan much more awake this morning. She blinks back when we blink, moves her feet, opens her eyes and is much more alert than last night. No we are not fully awake yet but when Jason told her he was leaving for Africa she reacted to that. She is doing better.

Medically her creatins are up and thats not good, liver is still not functioning like it should and heart is weaker than ideal. Yet more and more tubes are coming off and out.

We will visit one more time and then take Jason to the airport for his return flight to San Jose. What a blessing having this young man of faith has been to mom and all of us. He will be missed and appreciated.

I will post more later.

Sending our love and thanks for your prayers,

mustard family

    Hi Tim and Family,
    I will be praying all weekend for Nan. I am glad to hear that more and more tubes are being moved. Children do make a difference in your life and I know that Nan is blessed with the children and you, Tim.
    God bless you and your family,

    We missed seeing your blog yesterday but we all understand you need time to spend with the precious time left with your children and granddaughter. Also, you need time to rest and re-energize each night.
    It is so heartwarming to know that Nan is responding more each day and each day is more hopeful than the previous. How touched we are hearing about Keanna's sweet songs to her grammie. Would you be able to get a tape recorder to tape Keanna's singing so that Nan can still hear them afterwards?
    Know that we are praying for Nan's heart to be strengthen and her recovery will be forthcoming.
    In God's Love,
    Irene Wing

    How wonderful to see good news again! It is a slow process, but I hope & pray it is steadily forward, full steam ahead.

    We are all pulling for the Mustard Bunch back here in Livermore.

    Hi Mustards,
    Good news that more tubes are being removed! However we still need to be "Guardedly Optomistic" and we will all continue to pray for Nan and her family. She knew her family was near and the love that they have for her. How special. And little Keanna with her sweet songs was such a blessing for all of you. Have a restful Sabbath. We continue to remember you in our prayers.

    Love and prayers ~ Roger and Carol

    Such good news for all of you. It is especially great that Jason and Nan could have some communication before he had to go.
    I find myself giggling as I read your blog and while I write as Nan's pug is so lonely she will not stop licking my toes. She must be desperate for the attention Nan usually showers on her. The dog that never leaves her side is now entering depresion. But I think she will recover as soon as Nan get's back here. After all, noone else will give her table scraps. Tehee.

    Tim, It is such a blessing to be able to get daily reports on Nan's progress. Thank you so much for doing this for everyone. Her relatives here in Houston anxiously await the updates each day, and thank God and rejoice in each improvement.
    We love Nan so much!

    Hi Tim, Nikki and Keanna, How nice to know she "opened her beautiful blue eyes." I think she will talk to you on Sabbath, maybe on Sunday for your Father's Day gift. Keep up your courage. Love, Barb & Ger

    We are so glad that Nan is doing much better. We have been praying for her, she is a strong woman. Your family will leave soon but remember you can call us at anytime. I know you talk with Art often and please don't feel that you are interrupting, we are blessed not to have to work and we carry the cell phone everywhere. We'll be at the Grand Canyon next week, we'll call you from there as we won't have computer access.

    Happy Father's Day!

    Connie and Art
