Guess who called me!

I usually give you an update each Saturday, but I just had to tell you about the wonderful, exciting phone call I received from Melanie. We talked about 15 minutes. Her voice is still soft and I understood almost everything she said. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to hear her voice.

The main reason she called was to thank each and every one of you who have sent her a card and prayed for her. She says it has been absolutely wonderful to receive cards from so many that she doesn't even know. But, most of all she is so grateful for all the prayers. She is scheduled to leave RIC on the 18th, and will be moving ot another rehab facility in Indiana. I will update you with an address then.
