Hello everyone. It is Saturday and we are still in Austin recovering. Usually patients would go home today, but Skip is still having difficulty with getting up and down even with two people helping. I wish I would have worked out with weights a little more ahead of time. We are in the process of trying to get to a rehabilitation facility closer to home. They think he will need two or three days of inpatient therapy to work on normal getting around stuff. He had about 5 straight hours of uninterrupted sleep last night which really helped. Mentally this is so taxing on Skip. He hates relying on others for everything. I think that a lesson is emerging for sure. God is absolutely working on this amazing man and I can't wait to see what glory He brings to pass. If anyone out there wants to know what they can do to help, we need prayer for sure. We need to pray our insurance will provide a hospital bed when we get home(he needs the functions they provide as well as rails to hold onto to get out), we need to find a place for Skip to rehab near home or in Victoria(where grandparents are), and for Skip's pain to be more manageable. I know God will bring all of this about in His perfect timing. He has already provided me with so much patience and strength to give to Skip.
