Good Friday-morning

6:20 a.m. Stephen had a restless night. I think he is trying to hold off on pain medication but then becomes so uncomfortable. It is such a difficult balance to control the pain and keep him alert enough to be able to do some walking and breathing exercises. Let's hope that today will bring relief. Stephen's friends Jess and Mike came in from NY to visit with him yesterday, what a smile that put on his face. His roommate, Eddie has also driven in from NY the past two nights-his presence has made such a difference. Our family, of course, has been so wonderful-their presence gives us all an invaluable sense of comfort and support. I'm not sure what we would do without all the love and support from everyone around us-I cannot tell you what it means to each of us.

    Love you,

  3. Hi Karen,

  4. Hi Karen and family,
    My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your family, we pray for a prompt and full recovery for Stephen physically and emotionally. I am confident that with the blessings of this Holy Week everything will fall into place for Alison, Stephen and the rest of the family.
    I have been wanting to send a message since Tuesday but had no time to set up this account, but better late than never.
    Big hugs,
