I like dads new hair cut...

I know that we said that there was not going to be a new post but i thought i would let you know that dad got a new hair cut! Tom the nurse decided (with the help of mom) that dad didn't look good with a mullet, so Tom got out the clippers and cut his hair; the problem is that the clippers that the hospital use do not have guards. This being said...dad is bald! It looks good though!!

Just a reminder that today is the big day...the day that dad gets his trach. This is supposed to happen at 6pm and last an hour or so. We will likely not have an update until later in the evening. Please pray for Dr. Culp and his team as they do the surgery. Pray that God will give the doctors steady hands and the surgery will go well.

Please also continue to pray for endurance. This has been and will be a very long journey. It has been pretty wearing at times and patience can run a little thin...

Praise God that dad has been more active and moving more each day. Earlier we saw some movement out of his right side. There hasn't been much until now. He is also moving fingers more instead of just his hand. I look forward to the day that he really knows that we are in the room!

Thanks again for your continued thoughts and prayers. We will update you as soon as the surgery is over....

Words cannot express how I am feeling today. I am missing everyone and wishing I am sitting there with you instead of here. My soul is with you all today as we endure another step in the recovery of dad.

Love you all, Kelli

Dear Maley's

We are praying for Jim's surgery to go well tonight.

I remember when the head of ICU cut my dad's hair! Your comments sure brought back memories. :)

Thanks again for the time you take to keep us updated.

We appreciate it and will continue to ask our Heavenly Father for a miracle.

Love,

Rosa Liston

Hi Maley Family,

God is and will continue to give you incredible strength. You are an inpiration to Jim, and all of us. Our Lord is healing him as we speak and guarding him better than any other refuge from a storm.

It is remarkable how strong your family ties are, as well as your faith in the Lord, during these difficult days and nights. This is a strength to be admired, and he does.

Dear Sue and family,

Nahum 1:7
The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.

We know you trust him and we want you to know we love you and continue to pray for a miracle.

God Bless,
Kurt & Marilyn
