Today is Mitch's birthday. We didn't exactly get "a clean bill of health" for a birthday present, as we had requested. Early this morning, Mitch had a serious breathing episode that triggered a great deal of activity and a transfer to the ICU. However, before they could get everything processed to move him from his regular room, his breathing and all of his vital signs improved enough that he could have probably skipped this move. Even so, the doctor decided to stick with the plan and move him to ICU, hopefully for just 24 hours of observation.

We appreciate your prayers for his lungs to improve/be completely healed; the cancer to be eradicated and for God to strengthen, bless & encourage. When you pray for Mitch - pray for Chelsea, too. Her beautiful smile continues to brighten the room, but you know it's got to be hard for her, too.

Trusting Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine
(and imagining BIG STUFF!!),

We love you both and long for your complete recovery...
Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him for he shields you all day long. For the one He loves rests between His shoulders
