Dear Joey,

A change in destination but the same road: Recovery.

Once again I pray for a safe move and I add that you will receive a warm welcome of open arms and open hearts. Ready the expert care, ready the exact program, ready the excellent equipment.

Peace. You are loved.

Santa Clara

Dear Joey,

So, you are going to get a change of scenery. I am praying for an uneventful, safe, and comfortable move tomorrow. I heard from Bob that the pacemaker hasn't fired. A strong stable heart is an asset. Sandy says your mind is sharp and accurate. Nimble and quick as always. Your's is a mind to admire. And I do. Sleep well in Hashem's arms. You are loved deeply and well.

Dear Joey,

I am praying for the pneumonia to dry up today.

I know the best place for your health care will be found: one that has all the services and personnel you need.

So, the long view is that it will take some time for the nerves to heal. I'm praying for perfection in that healing process. Much of life and living takes time. Waiting doesn't always mean that nothing is happening. Hang in and hang on. You are loved.

Love Carol and Bella

Moving or Staying Put

Dear Joey,

You might get to move closer to home today. You are in God's capable hands where ever you are. He is there. I pray you do get to have the ability to speak without the trach soon. It must be exhausting to try to communicate in ways other than with your voice. Hopefully it is more amusing than exasperating to watch people try to understand. I'm thankful you have a strong mind and the will to keep working to accomplish your therapy.

Love carol and bella
