Post for December 12, 2015


Happy 30th birthday to our oldest son, Michael.  One year ago today, Perry was listed for a heart/double lung transplant by UNOS.  Forty seven years ago today, in 1968, Perry underwent his second heart surgery.

Continues to recover from most likely an upper respiratory infection & is on antibiotics.  Walked ~36 ft today.  Completed a 25 minute trach collar breathing trial. Very, very tired & slept most all of the day.

    Focusing on today's efforts, brings the utmost for tomorrow's hopes! What a team=That has hoped, prayed, planned, reached decisions, endured, but most of all, endeavors towards that ultimate goal, of one day looking at Cleveland in the rear view mirror, laughing and ever more in love as you head back home together! All your Prayer Warriors are giving it their all to gain this Prayed for Gift from God! As we all look forward to the upcoming celebration of Jesus' birth!

    Happy Birthday to Michael. Happy walking 36 feet to Perry. I bet that felt like 36 miles but he pushed through it. Thankful for each step forward but certainly sorry about the respirator infection. Hope the antibiotics kick butt quickly. E-Hugs and tons of prayers. Love, Joni & Ken
