The girls are coming!

In less than 48 hours, Julianna and Mari will be here with us! They're flying down Sunday with my dad, and we're so excited to have our family all together again.

Kol had a pretty good day today - he's needing less and less pain medication, he's been more alert and smiling, he's walking easier (although he still prefers to ride in his wheelchair).

Today's unexpected visit came from an old family friend - Vaughn Roste (I don't think I've seen him since 1994 or so) is living in Oklahoma, and stopped by for a visit. It was good catching up with him, and it also gave us a chance to play host and have him stay for supper - nothing fancy, just some basic spaghetti and a simple salad, but it felt good to be the host for a change.

Kol just rolled over in his bed and said (in an annoyed tone) "Don't you guys ever turn that OFF?!?", so I guess it's time to turn off the TV and shut down the laptop for the night.


  1. So pleased to hear that Kol is improving daily, and that Obert is bringing the girls down tomorrow. We spoke with him last night at a meeting and shared a hug. Hugs to all of you and many heartfelt prayers.

  3. Dear Kol (and family),

    We pray for you often throughout the day. The entire church at Elbow also has you in their prayers. You are a very brave/tough young man and inspire our family. We love you.
