Happy Day

Nate's breathing tube was removed yesterday. He is breathing on his own and talking just a little bit. What a relief it must be to verbally communicate again. The fluid that was in in Nate's lungs is also gone.

He continues to progress slowly and in the right direction. The biggest battle now is regaining strength and movement in his hands, arms and legs. He also needs to regain the ability to swallow.

It is so good to see him smile again.


  1. It was so good to see Nate yesterday. Frankie was on cloud 9!!! I'm so happy that he is making progress. My love and prayers are still with your family.

  2. Nate, Franki and Mark: It's so good to see todays post. We love your family so much. Hope to see you soon.
    Love Judy and Wendell
