Thank you all for your support on my time away. I had a restful time and was encouraged as I spent good friend time with Merrie and her family. It did rain or was cloudy the majority of the time I was there but it was a blessing for them, they needed the rain.



Jim did pretty good the first two days I was gone but unfortunately the rest of the week was hard on him. He is very focused on going home and is pretty sad and lonely. It's so hard to get him to understand that his need to stay and continue to improve outweighs his need to go home. The kids and I are struggling with this as we see his sadness. His birthday is June 17th and I had high hopes to take him out for a day but the Dr. doesn't feel this is a good idea. We will try to do what we can at the hospital but have to balance it with not over stimulating him.



If any of you feel led, would you consider sending him a birthday card or maybe a phone call that weekend. It's hard to make him believe he hasn't been forgotten.

VA Hospital

1481 W 10th StreetIndianapolis IN 46202

Patient: Jim Maley Rm C-4146

Phone: 317-988-3590



On an up note, the Dr. said today, he continues to improve but feels he may benefit from another facility here in Indy to continue rehab. I should be very happy but I know this will make Jim unhappy. I keep telling myself that it is in Gods hands and he will guide us. But my heart wants to take him home. Please continue to pray for guidance and wisdom.



I want you all to know I read all your comments and they lift me up. May all praise and glory go to Him who has given us so much and many miracles.

Sue,

It was good to see you and Jim, even though we had to visit on the grounds of the VA hospital. Anyway, I thought Jim looked good, he has good color and he seems to enjoy being allowed to sit outside. That alone has to give him the promise of new beginnings.

John and I will be in Indianapolis again in July, I hope you two are not there. However, if you are, we will sit and visit again.

God Bless,
Becky Wells, Stiebeling

Sue and family,
Sue I enjoyed our visit. I know how hard it was for you to be away from Jim. I hope that soon Jim will be able to tell you himself how glad he is that you came for a visit, and a time of much needed rest and relaxation.
Love to all,
Merrie

I continue to keep you all in prayer. June 17th is also our anniversary, so will remember to say an extra prayer for Jim on his birthday--and for Father's Day as well.

God is doing great things, Sue.

If they move him when and where? Do they give you any guidelines as to time frame? We will continue to pray for Jims recovery and for you and your families strength. P&P Miller
