Another month with Horn...as I'm learning to refer to my brother :) We continue to be blessed with visitors, prayers, words of encouragement and even a special night of music with our favorite Blue Footed Booby musicians! Today was another great day - 3 visits, all filled with love and hugs. I don't think Mike said a word. If he did it was just with whispers, yet I see him taking it all in and feeling the LOVE! August 11 has came and went...never imagined back in May that Mike would be celebrating his 49th birthday with family and friends. Yet a joyful occasion it was...sitting under palm trees and our feet in the sand...not quite Key West...but it worked! Just another gift from God to see friends and family gathering around Horn.
Mike is eating less, no more smiles, losing weight...yet keeping on keeping on. I don't hear "boo" when changing his shirt anymore and I'm not told, "that was a fake laugh" when I chuckle about something said. Yet the tears in his eyes when we have night time devotions and hearing his "Amen" reminds me that Mike's spirit is with us...and his faith is strong!
This is a summer that will go down in history...never to be forgotten...cherished forever! Our Heavenly Father has His arms around Mike, allowing family and friends one more day, one more day...before he is called home to his new home. Someday soon - no more tumor, no more paralysis, and I know his smile will return as Mike's Heavenly Father welcomes him home.
Thank you for continuing to pray for comfort, no pain and no headaches for Mike!
Love to all, Vonda
