Hi everyone,

Suzy has been discharged from the hospital! However, she is still in quite a bit of pain, though it is somewhat manageable by medication. She is walking, but anything more than 50 feet is really quite a bear. We'll have another appt with Dr. Parker in the morning and if all goes well, we'll be cleared to drive back to South Bend.

She's resting a lot and often falls asleep mid-sentence. Thank you for all of the phone calls, but at this point emails are best because she is constantly sleeping (or at least trying to sleep). I read her the emails when she wakes up and it really lifts her spirits.

Thanks for all of your prayers and please keep 'em coming.


  1. Hello, you beautiful couple!
    It was a great blessing just to hear your voices for a minute.
    You are not far from our minds and hearts all day.
    We love you and send our hugs, prayers, blessings, and can't wait to see you later in the month.
    Mom and Dad

  2. Excellent news!!!! Just keep resting Suzy!!! Dave make sure you get rest too, so you can be the best caregiver ever!!! :) We're praying for both of you. Hopefully you'll get to go home tomorrow and can recover as comfortably as possible in your own bed!!

  3. Dear Suzy [and Dave]
    Continuing to pray for and think about you. Hoping for a lessening of pain and discomfort as you travel home to recover. Our thoughts, hugs and love follow you.
    God's blessings,
    Mom and Dad
