Surprises

Eric continues to surprise us. It seems every day, he does something new on his road to recovery. This past Thursday evening, he walked almost half way around Gabriel Sq. in our neighborhood. His furthest distance at that time, and I thought it quite impressive. But Friday evening, he walked the whole square! It's .84 miles -- I measured it on my bike. Two weeks ago when we went to church, Eric was in a wheelchair. Today, with O2 tank slung over his shoulder, he not only walked from the parking lot into church, but, instead of taking the elevator up to fellowship hall, as I expected, he strode right up the stairs, all 21 of them! I can't wait to see what he does next.

That's what happens when you eat the Sonic all the time!! You get energy. Keep it up and in no time, you will be running laps. Best, Jennifer Ettenger

I'm so glad to hear about Eric's amazing progress walking around the neighborhood. Also that you got to the spa. I've never been to one, but if there's anyone who deserves a visit to a spa it's you. (big relaxed sigh)

We love Apples to Apples!

Great achievements Eric. So glad to hear that you are making steady progress. A positive attitude is going to get you back in shape sooner rather than later. I'm sure you climb steps faster that I do. Enjoy the holiday tomorrow. It's back to work on Tues.

Thank you Jesus for a fast and complete recovery of Eric's lung and everything else in his body. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful miracle! It's been a joy watching prayers being answered right before our eyes. What a faith builder this has been. Thank you again Lord for being faithful to your Word.

Eric what a testimony you have. Imagine the power it will have on those who hear it! You are so blessed. Isn't it wonderful to have God on your side?

Have a great day.

Eric is God's way of showing so many people that HE DOES ANSWER PRAYER!!! We just need to be doing the praying. Thank you Lord.
