Finally, Some Mobility

This was the first day where I felt more comfortable out of bed than in it. I spent a large chunk of the day down in the visitor's waiting room with family and friends. We passed the time playing card games and discussing everything we knew up to this point.

In the late afternoon, I went downstairs for the MRI of my brain. The procedure lasted about 1/2 hour and required me to stay absolutely still. We expect to hear results from the scan tomorrow.

We know that there are a lot of people praying for us, and I am already feeling the positive effects of the healing process. Thanks so much to everyone out there who is praying for our family, we firmly believe that this is what is going to get me through this.

Dear Nate, Deb & children: I sure hope this goes through since I am no pro on the computer. Cheryl Jozsa was kind enough to send me your blog. Nate I knew the first day I met you when I was working in the office for C.C. you were a very special person. I love reading your updates, and I know God is right there with you. God Bless. Love, Mary Cyr

HELLO, I HAVE KNOWN DEBBIE FOR SOMETIME. ALTHOUGH SHE MIGHT NOT REMEMBER ME.
I MET HER MOM IN CICERO IN THE EARLY 80'S AND HAVE BECOME FRIENDS. I RAN INTO HER AT CHURCH ONE DAY AND WE EXCHANGED PHONE NUMBERS. I CALLED HER UP ONE DAY AND IN OUR CONVERSATION DEB CAME UP AND THE FIGHT TO BEAT HER HUSBANDS BATTLE WITH HIS ILLNESS. I FELT OVER TAKEN BY THE CONVERSATION BUT KNEW THAT I WOULD KEEP HER AND HER FAMILY IN OUR PRAYERS. DEB AND NATE I AND MY FAMILY WILL KEEP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN OUR DAILY PRAYERS. WE HAVE AN ALMIGHTY GOD.
WE JUST NEED TO CONTINUE TO TRUST IN HIM FOR ALL OUR NEEDS. I DIDN'T THINK I COULD GO ON LIVING WHEN MY SON DIED. YET HERE I SIT AND I'M STILL BREATHING AND WRITING YOU THIS NOTE, SO CONTINUE TO BELIEVE
HOLD ON TO CHRIST FOR HE IS ALL WE NEED, SOUNDS A BIT NON PERSONAL, BUT THERE IS NO ONE ON THIS PLANET THAT WILL COMFORT YOU LIKE HIM. HIS HOLY SPIRIT REMAINS IN US, PRAISE GOD FOR THAT. MY DEAR FRIENDS MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES. MAY GODS ANOINTING SPIRIT FILL YOUR EVERYDAY. AS YOU ARISE EACH DAY GIVE THANKS FOR THE DAY AHEAD AND PRAISE HIM FOR THE DAY OF PAST.
IF I MAY HELP YOU IN ANY WAY PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO REACH ME OR MY HUSBAND. LARRY DOMINICK IS THE PRESIDENT OF CICERO (MAYOR) AND CAN BE REACHED AT TOWN HALL CICERO ILLINOIS. OR YOU CAN REACH ME ELIZABETH DOMINICK AT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT. OUR LOVE TO YOUR FAMILY FROM THE HEARTS OF MINE
REMAIN IN HIS LOVE,
ELIZABETH DOMINICK
