Wendy didn't sleep at all last night. New nurses, sharing a room, delayed food trays, unfamiliarity of a new space all made it impossible for her to relax. Dr. Calhoun said she desperately needs sleep. Without sleep she won't have enough energy to adequately complete her physical therapy. She also needs to start eating more. She needs calories for much needed energy.
She has absolutely NO set date for going home. Her recovery will be evaluated day by day.
CB met up with and checked in on a few of the people you have been asked to add to your prayer list. Hunter had his tracheotomy today. The procedure went well. He is heavily sedated at the moment. Vincent smiled for the first time today since his accident on September 27th. His sisters said this last weekend was very scary and they almost lost him. CB shared with them that he though for certain it was the power of prayer that got him through the weekend. Two more of his sisters will be arriving from Holland on Saturday. CB, GB, and Sylvia met up for breakfast at the Kiwanis Family House this morning. The three prayed for a little baby named Madison that had surgery at 5:30 am. They encouraged Sylvia to not be afraid to pray and talk to God. Sylvia was excited to report that she read the first two chapters of John last night.
The Kiwanis Family House is a sanctuary for families that are at UC Davis Medical Center with hospitalized relatives. CB got a chance to meet and thank the founder of the Kiwanis Family House today. Wendy's family has been so thankful for a close and comfortable place to end their long days. They are also thankful and blessed by the many incredible encounters they've had with people like Evonne, Michael, and Sylvia at the Kiwanis Family House. The Kiwanis Family House is filled with opportunities for conversations that open the doors for God's love to be heard and accepted.
It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. Samuel 22:33
