Glory to Jesus Christ--glory forever!

FINALLY two pieces of good news:

1) All but one suture was removed today.

2) A bone density test revealed borderline osteopenia, not full blown, and certainly not osteoporosis.

Continued prayers please for the strengthening of the leg muscles severely damaged by the infection.

And prayers, please, for this unworthy servant who is her caregiver, needing to press my head harder into the marble floor at the third stroph of the Prayer of St. Ephraim for I am frequently losing patience with the insensitivity shown by some "medical professionals" and the outright incompetence occasionally encountered.

Christos Anesti!

I am profoundly thankful to share that, yesterday, on the Orthodox Sunday of the Samaritan woman Photini, my wife was able, for the first time in 10 weeks, to walk most of the day with a cane instead of a walker.

She was able to attend Orthros and Divine Liturgy and fully participate....walking carefully to reverence the Gospel at Orthros and to receive the Holy Mysteries.

The pace of recovery, as many know, has been slow. So much so that her retirement from public school teaching, originally planned for June 30, was accelerated to May 10.

There is still a lot of physical therapy ahead. Her goal is to be able to climb the 20 steps to the church choir loft. Right now she can do one or two.

So, please continue the prayers!

Dear Thomas,

Patience is a virtue and a blessing to you! ;-)

I am glad that your wife is doing a bit better.
I pray that she will come to a full recovery.

Be well,
Alice
