One Less Tube

Yesterday afternoon, Sue and Lisa sat with Eric (thanks!) while Bob and I took a break. It's been two months since we've done anything together as a couple besides being Eric's parents. We strolled through Hermann Park, looking at flowers and watching wildlife. Had dinner at Luby's. Felt like a date.

The doctor pulled chest tube number two out this afternoon. Eric's doing great. My prayerful pleas have shifted from "Please God, please" to "Thank you God, thank you."

Visitors today (in order of appearance): Aunt Lisa, Aunt Sue, Andrew, Grandma Rusnack, Aunt Cathy, Uncle Steve, the Easter Bunny (who gave Eric a stuffed rabbit) and two clowns.

Praise God! Isn't He great? Always there and always faithful. Eric is going to recover quicker than you could imagine and be better than he was before this happened to him. Good job Eric. Have a blessed evening.

Thank you for sharing the good news!! So glad you and Bob had a pleasant day together. Even more glad that Eric is doing well enough that you felt comfortable to get away for awhile!
Love

Great news, Angie. So glad Eric is slowly loosing all the things that tie him to his bed. God is good and He has shown his great love for your family. Indeed, prayers of thanksgiving are in order. I will keep all of you in my prayers until you are safely back home. That does not mean I will ever take you off my prayer list.

Hi to Eric, Bob, and Andrew.

Love, bev

I'm so glad to hear that you & Bob have been able to spend some time together. And glad to hear that Eric is progressing so well. And glad to hear that Eric was able to entertain so many visitors today! All answers to prayer.

Wow! I'm back from the retreat and read the last couple of days to catch up on what's been happening. I missed a lot. God is good. I'm so glad you and Bob had some alone time and Eric is making huge strides. The dark cloud is lifting and I couldn't be more thrilled. Love you guys and hope to come your way soon.
