Woo Hoo! Insurance approved the 2 week extension! Another answered prayer! Rick "went shopping" again today with his shopping cart. Olivia said today was even better than yesterday. Katie is walking beside him and mainly helps him shift his weight from side to side and Olivia sits on a rolling stool & rolls along guiding his feet. Because of his tone his legs "scissor" and his feet need to be guided into the next step. He was so tired when he was done. He got his trial of soft chopped today, and did okay, but not great. Christina fed him the first few bites and then gave him the fork...he went straight to the pie! It was really funny! We'll try another trial at breakfast and hopefully he'll do better.
Your prayers are so appreciated. We get proof everyday that God is listening and answering. Rick's cousin, Ray Gipson came to visit today after his own doctors appointment. And, he now needs prayers, too. I didn't ask many details, but his cancer has returned and he will have surgery in the next couple of weeks here at Baylor. Please add Ray to your prayer list.
WE STILL BELIEVE!
