Rough Night Tonight

Rachael is having a rough go of it tonight.  She worked hard today.  She was massaged and did rehab work.  Tonight around 5:00 she became quite vocal and distressed.  Her vocalizations are not decipherable yet.  Her heart rate was quite high and even with heavy  meds she is still at a higer rate than what we would like to see.  Pray for her tonight if you will that she will get through this night with peace. 

We have not gotten a direction on where to go next.  Her stay here at Health South Ridgelake is coming to an end and she will move to a rehab facility or a health care facility that offers some rehab.  Health South is one place she might go but there is also Heartland in Sarasota and the Kessler Institute in NJ.  If she were to go to Kessler, she would be up there around 3-4 weeks.

Last night several friends of Rachael's arrive from Word of Life Bible Institute in Hudson, Florida.  They were a grand blessing.  Rachael laughed and smiled throughout their visit.  The girls sang songs to her, read her letters and notes, worshiped with her, prayed with her and caught her up on all the WOLBI news.  We want to thank Beca Robertson and the gang from WOL.  What a solid bunch of young believers!  We all prayed together before their departure.  It was a blessing for all of us.  Hanna was here with us (she has not seen Rachael yet) and therefore got to witness Godly young woman in prayer and demonstrating a love for Christ.

Thank you all for your continued prayers,

Burt and Nancy
