Quote & Update!

Ashley came across a quote that helped lift her spirits today. She shared it with me when I got the update from her. I knew it had to go on the blog tonight!

"When a train goes through a tunnel and gets dark, you don't throw away your ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer."
~Corrie ten Boom (author of The Hiding Place)

*Robert is doing well today. He still sleeps a lot, but is awake more. His numbers are still .3, and he got platelets today. He gets a chest x-ray every night at midnight, and they look more clear every day. His breathing is much better. This has allowed him to eat more. Today he had pudding and some chicken pot pie. He doesn't have a great appetite yet, so Ashley helps to convince him that eating and drinking Ensure is the cool and super thing to do! He only gets lasix as needed now, and he didn't need any today. He is getting rid of his excess fluids well on his own. All the prayers are helping! Thank you!

  1. that is a REALLY good quote. I found your blog through my friend andrea's. I went to high school with her and she served a mission in rob's same area. You are an amazing couple and sooo positive. Thank you for you influence and holding strong to the gospel no matter what comes your way. You will be blessed for your dedication and endurance!
