Three Updates

Dad S. is doing much better and seems to be getting stronger each day. He is back to teaching 2 classes at the Bible college. He gets home from class then has to rest for a while. We are thankful for his recovery but continue to covet your prayers as he grows stronger and that he will take it easy during this long recovery process.

Rebekah's hand remains the same. She has developed 2 eraser sized knots, one on her ring finger and one on her index finger. They don't bother her so I am just watching them for now. She has occasional pain in the index finger. She has learned to wear a sock with the toes cut out to protect the arm donor site. She sees the surgeon in December.

Kandie's feet. My feet have been a problem for my entire life, literally. The one that had been in the boot since returning from Peru is doing great!! The right foot which has a spur in it and has been bothering me for 2 years isn't. Dr. Hoover will operate on that foot on November 19. I am actually looking forward to it since I have been walking with pain for sooooo long. I don't look forward to the long recovery. My plans for working at the hospital this furlough are looking dim with the needed surgery. I can't be on my feet for 12 hours at this point. I would like to find some type of gainful employment. I have enjoyed volunteering at our church's community center.

Thanks for praying for the Stilwell clan, it has been an interesting year for all of us.

Thanks for the updates Kandie!!! We are excited about coming up!!! The girls are disaapointed that they will miss nearly four weeks of their puppies lives. Oh well. Also thanks for the updates on your father-in-law and on Rebekah. We will keep praying for both. My father-in-law is flying up to Cleveland Clinic this week. He has an appointment on the 15th. We are praying that he won't have to have any by-passes but something isn't working right in his heart or arteries. Which ABF do you attend? We want to make sure we see your presentation at the ABFs when we are up there on Oct. 5th!!! See ya soon!!
