So, I started writing the post below around 9AM today, but it being work, I had it on the back burner most of the day, adding to it as I got the chance. My dad just called me, they had mom up on a walker today, and she did so well that they moved her out, yes OUT OF ICU and into a private room. How cool is that? She doesn't want to spend the night alone, so dad is staying with her tonight, but I'm going in on wednesday and will spend the day with her. My heart is quite full at the moment. We seem to be on the right path, after all.
Thank you, God, for being with us all.
