Three pieces of good news!

Please don't let the signs of progress in Jan's though recovery make you stop your support for her, whichever form it takes: prayers, songs, thougts of love, moral support, practical support, etc. I hope soon she will be happy to hear from all her friends and coleagues, so keep sending emails or blogging. The real need for your support will come later. Right now join Steve's invitation to celebrate even these small signs of recovery in Jan.

All of you are a true inspiration to us. As a family we feel supported and benefit in the rebound from the love you pour for Jan.

Many thanks from the bottom of my heart,

Fede

I'm daily praying for Jan and the rest of the family. I rejoice with you in all of the progress that has been made and pray for continued peace.

Hello Jan. I am praying for you. I just opened up this blogspot account and when I saw the choice of templates that's when I realize I already have one that I don't use because I could never get it to work properly. But that's beside the point. The important thing is that I got through here to let you know I'm praying for you and feeling peaceful and confident that you will pull through and recover.

There isn't a day goes by that I don't think of her again and again, talking to her in my mind and heart, and sending her my love. I sense her work here on Earth, and with her friends is not done, and she is on her way back.

Hi, Jan! I don't remember whether or not I mentioned this in any of my emails but my mom has a neighbour who had an aneurysm/coma similar to yours and she's recovered 100%, although she did have to learn to walk all over againduring the first month. I'm sure you'll be okay. It's amazing how many people are praying for you!

Laura hermana de Fede:
Desde el pasado martes que llegue con mi otra hermana Norma, pensando que podriamos ser de apoyo moral y espiritual para Fede y pidiendo a Dios un milagro para Jan, al ver que ha pasado una semana y escuchar el progreso y el cambio de area en el hospital el dia de hoy, significa que Dios esta obrando de una forma maravillosa. Estoy agradecida a Dios por Su gran fidelidad y se que El seguira haciendo Su obra perfecta hasta el fin.
Jan estas en nuestra oracion.\

Jan has a new address!!! she moved this evening to the intensive care unit where she shares a large area with 10 or 12 other patients. The pace is a lot slower that in the critical care area. There is no sense of urgency and the nurse was very kind.

She responds clearly to what she wants and what she does not want. She didn't seem bothered about the change. Her vitals were normal, her temperature just a bit high. She seemed somewhat tired, she would focus for about 5 minutes and then dose off for a few minutes. She needs a lot of rest. The nurse reminded us of the importance of giving her a chance to recuperate.

My Dad and I went in to talk to her. She was very awake and kept looking at us very carefully, like studying our faces. When Dad talked to her she smiled and nodded. Made motions with her lips as if she wanted to form words but no sound came out. Dad prayed close to her ear, her eyes clearly got moist with tears. Did she know who my dad was? Was she praying along? All facts indicate that she was understanding what was happening.

Her cheeks had a nice peach colour, her hand was untied (the nurse asked her not to take her tubes out or else, she would tie her hand). She ran slowly her finger along the stiches and then moved her mouth to one side of her face, like saying: oh well...it could be worse! I told her she looked beautiful, she smiled.

Tonight, I saw Jan the warrior again. I remember her words: I was born to fly! And fly she will! She has a note on her desk at home with a quote from Isaiah 40:30 "they will raise up as an eagle in teh sky.."

Thank you for all your prayers and efforts of love. They are yielding a wonderful fruit.
