We understand, Toben! In situations like this, a lot of times no-news is good news! So glad that your wife is back home and that your family is getting back into the new normal :D

I am sure things are crazy.... in a good way! Glad you are all busy finding your new normal with Joanne back home. Blessings!

No problem! I hope all is well and routine is settling in.

Praying and praying,


Toben! You are excused!! You're not a kid who has to report in every day or every little thing that happens. Sure, we wonder how everything is going but you have lots more on your mind besides keeping everyone posted on this blog. Praying everything is going well.


I have been thinking about Joanne and your whole family and hoping that all is going well in Joanne's recovery and settling in to your new routine.

Best wishes, Lynn


I check daily to see updates but pray that everything is fine and no news is good news!My thoughts and prayers are with all of you still.

I was listening to Kim Komando (she is a technology expert). She mentioned 4 games on the wii that may speed recovery with stroke victims who struggle with the use of one arm. Hammer Tanks, Plasma pong, virtual piano and humming bird hunt. Maybe you've already heard of these but just thought i'd pass it along.
I think of you and Joanne and the girls often.
Praying for you all,
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You
Isa 26:3

I love reading regardless of how often.. of course everyone understands and continues to pray. I've been so inspired by this entire journey (and I don't even know you, i only know kristen).... how all of you have handled this situation is nothing but an amazing example and gives God the glory. Such an amazing family, faith, and love.

I am continuing to pray for you and Joanne and your entire family! Chris Tomlin's "How Great Is Our God" always gives me such strength during life's trials. I know God is continuing to work in your lives, and He will do a new work in Joanne!


Praying for your precious family and continuing to pray big!
