Rejoice

I have wonderful news to share: my mom is making great progress! She's still in the ICU, but has, according to her doctors, made dramatic improvement and they are quite pleased. This is a major change from Saturday and Sunday when we were being asked if she had a living will and to get our affairs in order. We even had the priest come on Sunday to perform the Annointing of the Sick; the situation was that grave.

Then yesterday we started to see an improvement and we were elated, to say the least. I can't thank you enough, dear friends, for your kind words and prayers. I really believe that prayer can work miracles. I look out on this sunny day and I am thankful.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad.
- Psalm 118:24
