What a day

Hooraay! Bravo, bravisimo!! for Jan, who is fighting -and winning- all these battles of those things we take for granted... never again! Next time I have a sip of water I will remember what it meant today for Jan. Next time I write a word, I will remember the effort Jan made today to write something for us. As I type this blog, I remember Jan's smile when she typed Hi!, and feel truly thankful for such everyday gifts: walk, talk, write, swallow.

Janita, gracias! for the beautiful gift of your voice and your words. One day soon you will celebrate with us.

What an awesome week the past week has been for Jan's recovery. Every day she is taking new steps in her recovery. I imagine she will soon be able to write her own comments in this blog!

Jan, way to go! Congratulations on all your progress.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

I say a simple prayer of thanks for all the healing: I thank you God that your love and your grace are sufficient!

We are all celebrating the progress Jan makes every day. I just knew she would be one of the lucky ones to survive and recover. Way to go Jan!

Fede, I am so happy for you as well, that Jan's illness did not cut short your journey together.

My Dearest Jan,

Everyday I continue to thank God for your continued Progress. I agree with Fede I take so many simple things like eating, swallowing, writing etc for granted.

I was reading today Psalm 22/23 & I thought of you:

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures
he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name's sake. EVEN THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE DARKEST VALLEY, I FEAR NO EVIL; FOR YOU ARE WITH ME. (Jan I know God is with you providing you guidance & light & courage)
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff- they comfort me. (I know God is comforting you Jan)
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life. ( I know God has a plan for you Jan)
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.

Jan, I am thrilled to hear about your spirit being lifted. Steve, thanks for sharing the carton of Joy & happiness which Jan finds so hilarious. I thank for your your mind, soul & body healing.

I love you & miss you so much
