Nan Mustard's Recovery

This blog is a record of Erin (Nan) Mustard's recovery.

Headed for CT.

Dear Friends and Family,

It is sunday and Nan is READY to leave this place. It is a wonderful blessing to hear her on the phone booking a hotel for Wednesday night, booking our flights on Southwest for thursday, spitting out numbers, discount options. What a wonderful outcome to have her mentially intact, to have her left leg working, to have her heart functioning well, to have her feeling whole and hopeful about the future.

For many of you who have been with me through the blog from the very beginning you know full well what the journey has been like. Nan's recovery has been a miracle, a long struggle, a test of her metal. Each of you has played an important part in this process and we will always appreciate what you have done. We have experienced something that most people will never have to go through, we would never have imagined that we could go through all of this but each step has been possible because of God's hands.

We have no idea what God has in mind for our future but we certainly want to be available to do His will whatever that is. We know we are not the only people facing serious medical issues and we would hope that we can help others as they face impossible odds and frightening times.

Today we hope to collect all the various items sitting in the window ledge, seat Nan in a wheel chair, head to the elevator and to the lobby. I'll run to the car which is parked in a place I've found that is free, been there for a week so far, drive the car up to the front door and load the most beautiful patient in the world. Then we will drive out Highway 9 to Freeway 395 and head south to East Lyme, CT. If Nan wants to stop for lunch we will, if Nan wants to do anything we will. At Roxanna and Ricks Nan will get to sit in the recliner, eat baked potatos for dinner, play with the doggies and relax.

Our weather here is not as warm as the west, mostly clouds and rain, however we'll take some nice dry heat for a change I think.

I'll blog later when our day is over. For now please pray that God will grant us His blessings and a safe trip today.

We send our love and deep appreciation.

    Enjoy the drive Nan. It has been a very long time since you have been able to do that :) How happy I am for you. As always I wish you the best of luck and keep you in my prayers and thoughts. You are a great woman Nan. Tim is right the most beatiful patient is now being released. But you have never depended on your looks or womanley wiles to get your way. Always using your brain. I find you a marvel. There are not many in the world that utilize it the way that they should. You have always sought out knowledge and a strong path to follow. It has been a blessing to have gotten to know you. Thank you for letting me share part of your life. I will be so elated when you get to land in CA :)
    Have a great visit.
    Pam :)
