Home At Last 1-24-06

Yesterday Andrea got to come home at 1PM. She was up at 4AM taking a shower and getting out of her hospital gown. They finally let her go and we headed to the eye doctor for a check up on her right eye and a pre-op for her left. She was able to read some big letters and her right eye continues to improve.

She was so happy to be home from the hospital. We just sat around till about 10PM talking and celebrating with family. It was my Mom's birthday and she received the greatest present of all. Andrea is finally home. She is still scheduled to receive surgery on her left eye on Thursday of this week.

Her trachea is still healing and she has an annoying cough. Once it heals she have an easier time coughing up the junk still left in her lungs. We worked out today and she walked down the street this afternoon with me. She also got to take a ride in her wheelchair down the street on this beautiful afternoon. She also did some walking and is getting stronger each and every day. Keep the prayers coming and we God will heal Andrea. She is so beautiful and needs everyone's support. God Bless and talk to everyone tomorrow.

Andrea & Jay praise his Holy Name. Thank you Jesus for the miracle you have provided! Andrea, it makes me stronger in my faith to see the miraculous way the Lord has answered our many prayers. I continue to pray for you and your family daily. As I mentioned in a prior comment I do not know you personally but only heard of a young woman in need of prayer. Thank you for letting me pray with you. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your miracle. Ask, Seek, Knock.

Your Brother in Christ!

Andrea -

I am so happy that you are home and getting back into a normal routine. You are breaking through every obstacle in your path and in no time you will be out setting the world on fire again. Please know that I think about you all the time and I can't wait to hear your voice again. I would say take care of yourself, but I know that J is already doing a good job of that.

Love ya.
