Many thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers during the last week. For those of you who don't know, my mother-in-law had a stroke sometime Monday evening. My father-in-law was in Toronto on business so she didn't get to the hospital until Tuesday afternoon. When she didn't show up for work, they sent someone over to check on her. (See it DOES pay to be a conscientious employee!). We made the trip down to GA on Tuesday evening arriving around 12:30 or 1 and traveled back to NC yesterday. We are mentally and emotionally exhausted. His mom is doing better and it looks like she will be able to make a full recovery, but we are still all in shock. She came home from the hospital on Thursday afternoon and was starting to put some full sentences together before we left. She still has a long road ahead of her though. She begins speech therapy on Wednesday so please continue to pray that her road to recovery will be as quick as possible. Please continue to pray for Chad's dad as well as he schedules his mom's appointments and works with her at home. Thanks again for loving us and for holding us up during this stressful time.
