Al's left foot and toes look like they're three times my foot size, and I take a size 13. Al was in good spirits, and was watching the television. He was rather forlorn because he has no idea when his foot and femur will heel so he can leave the VA and head home. He was very glad to see us. He also said he'll miss karaoke at the VFW. Al is still in Room F56 at the VA. Mike prayed for healing, and patience for Al.
Ted looked better than I would have imagined. The nurse was changing his trachea tube, and Mike and I had a very difficult time watching this, and what Ted was going through (the torture). Every shift they do this procedure (three times every day). Ted grabbed my hand as they were doing this, as he was very uncomfortable, and so were Mike and I. Ted has his memory back, as he told me to say hello to Karen, and "how is your family?" He was disappointed that he has missed his grandfather's funeral, would like to be in New York City with his oldest son, BJ, who is fighting Hodgkin's Disease and has lost his hair after his fourth chemo treatment, and couldn't talk enough about "what an angel Shelly is". We asked if we could pray with him, and he was all for it. Ted is still in Room 405 at St. Joe.
These two need our constant prayers, that they would not give up and they would heal quickly. If you can make you way over to the Ann Arbor VA or St. Joseph's (Ypsilanti), you would be lifting up their spirits, for sure.
