Rick got his new wheelchair today, and he looks fabulous in it. It is a standard wheelchair that he will be able to propel better because it has the big wheels that he can use his hands on, and it is about 40 lbs lighter than the old chair. His posture is so much better and he can flat move in it. He isn't that great with his arms and hands yet, but it'll come. After he got it, we played wheelchair basketball in PT. Rick picked me to be on his team. We played Laura and was pretty fun...Rick enjoyed it and even grabbed Laura's wheelchair one time to keep her from getting to the basket. The Friday outing was more like an inning. We went into the courtyard behind the building and made stepping stones, planted flowers, petted a miniature pony, ate cake, roped the was actually pretty nice to stay here.

I didn't get the kids today. Riley isn't feeling well for one thing, but we have plans of going to Vernon on Sunday for Kelsey Graf's confirmation...she's our God daughter so I would like to be there for her confirmation. Then, my nieces have their dance recital on Sunday afternoon in Munday and it is always a lot of fun to watch.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

God Bless!

DAY 312

The therapists keep pushing Rick and he continues to rise to the occasion. In OT this morning, Emily had Rick take his socks and shoes off and then put them back on. The last time they tried this, he wasn't able to get his socks off without the help of a reaching stick. Today, he got them off all by himself...and he is sooooo close to tying his shoes. In PT he worked on standing and having good posture...he tends to slump when he's standing. His back and shoulder muscles are still weak. He also climbed the stairs which is great for building strength and endurance.

Riley survived TAKS, but unfortunately has shingles. It started last week with the pain and burning, and Mom got her to the doctor today. She has some medicine to take so hopefully this will resolve quickly.

I thought it would be a good time to let everyone know that we will be moving to Seymour. I don't know where to yet, so if you have any ideas, please send me a message on FB or an e-mail. In the next few weeks I hope to go to the ranch and get our things packed up. Rick understands and the kids understand although they miss their Guthrie friends terribly, as do I. If there was any way possible for us to stay in Guthrie, I would do it, but at this point it's just not feasible. Of course, we still don't have a discharge date for Rick, but I'd like to get settled in somewhere before he gets out.

God has gotten us this far, so I'm not worried about the next part of our journey. Sometimes you gotta keep goin'; even if you don't know where you're goin' to.

DAY 311

God answers prayers daily! The proof is in the Puddin'...literally. Puddin' is Stacia Antilley's nickname for Rick...and I see the proof! This morning Emily had him try shaving again. He was able to shave 70% of his face in 25 minutes which is a huge improvement from last time. More walking in PT this morning and then pool again this afternoon. He walks really good in the pool and even floated on his back with the help of some floaties. He was in fine form the guy TA's advice on "how to handle your women". He was pretty seeing and hearing his personality come out.

Please pray for the kids taking TAKS tests, and the teachers giving them. Poor Riley has enough stress in her life and now we have to add Science TAKS on top of it tomorrow. Please pray for the strength, health, and happines of my kids. They have been such troopers through all of this.

DAY 310

Rick has somewhat recovered from the weekend, but was still a little tired today. He worked hard today. In PT this morning he walked about 30 ft and would then sit down in a chair...then back up again and walk back...over and over again. OT and ST double teamed him and had him standing and talking. It was pretty busy in the gym and Rick did really good standing and concentrating on trying to talk at the same time. This is such good therapy for him. Then this afternoon he had PT again. Laura got the tryke's a 3 wheeled bike. We went outside and he got on and as Laura is explaining to him what to do, he just takes off pedalling. He gets to going to fast at one point that Laura is jogging beside him telling him, "slow down, Rick, slow down!" He had a big ole' smile on his face the whole time. That's what I love about Rick...he's always up for anything, and he's got a great attitude. We decided to bump his pump up once again; from 300 to 315. Shad Wayne, my cousin, came by to see us this evening. Rick has never seen Shad in his work clothes (dress shirt & tie)...all grown up. He smiled and told Shad he looked like "a fish out of water".

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world. John 16:33

DAY 309

I got to see Miss Ava this morning before I left Seymour...she is so precious and canNOT be my brothers child! LOL! When I got back to TLC Meredith was doing a meal evaluation on Rick. The first meal observation she did on January 4th, Rick was only able to eat 20% of his meal in 30 minutes. Today he ate 80% of his meal in 45 minutes...better and better all the time. He had pool therapy this afternoon. He was really tired...still hasn't really recovered from this weekend, but perked up once he got in the water. Laura made the mistake of flicking some water on him before he got in the pool, and he made sure to pay her back once he got in. He splashed both her and Susie and then me, too. He's in the shower now and will probably be in bed asleep by 7:15.

I'm excited to see what the week will bring. Praying that God continues to bless us.


Sunday, April 25, 2010

DAY 307 & 308

We had a super busy Saturday, and our first date since the accident. TLC took the patients to the Ranching Heritage Center yesterday afternoon. They were having their annual pioneer days, and it was really fun. Rick of course wanted to look at and read all the history of EVERYTHING, but we just didn't have time. Then we were invited to a dinner at the Fraiser Alumni Center on the Tech campus. It was hosted by Hub City Access, an organization founded to make Lubbock more accessible to handicap, or handicapable, people. Dr. Wolcott was recognized for his contributions. He is such a good man and a good don't always find that combo. He is also pretty talented...after the dinner and awards, he and his band played. We enjoyed it, but Rick was so tired. This morning he slept in, and at 11 o'clock I had to wake him up. We had a very pleasant surprise this afternoon. A visit from the Eddleman family...Barry Ray, Cindy and Brayden. We haven't seen Barry in a while, and Rick always calls him Barry Ray, and today when he walked in Rick looked at him and said, "Barry Ray", just like old times. We had a great visit and Rick stood to shake Barry's hand when he left, and reassured Barry that he is gonna get better and get outta there!

I brought the kids to Seymour and will head back to Lubbock tomorrow.

Good night and God Bless!

DAY 305 & 306

Well, we did it...we finished the week as good as we started it. The last couple of days, Rick has done LOTS of walking. And still walking really good...still pulling his left foot through good and not catching his toe. Today, the community outing was cancelled because they had planned to go to the park and have relay races. It was too cold and windy to go to the park, so we played frisbee golf in the hallways. He stood to throw the frisbee and then walked down the halls with the help of Laura and Meredith. When he was waiting his turn he would lean against the wall. The hallway is about 80 ft long. When he finally got the frisbee in the goal, he sat down for about 10 minutes to recoop and then walked back down the hall to his chair. When he wasn't walking, he was pedalling his wheelchair so, by the end of the day he was really tired. He has handled his thin liquids so well, that I'm not even worried about him choking anymore. He is now transferring to a regular chair to eat...just another way to get him out of the wheelchair more and more and make him stabilize his core and keep his balance while eating. Of course, it's no problem for Rick. By ending this week well, he has put together 3 great weeks in a row! Now that is progress!

I picked up the kids in Dickens and this time it was in a windstorm...gotta love west Texas weather. Speaking of West Texas weather, hope everyone in Motley and Cottle Counties survived the storms the last couple of nights...they were some doozies!

Praise God for all his healing, for creating a brain that can renew and restore itself, for giving us the strength and help we need to get through this and for all the encouragers that keep cheering us on!


Wednesday, April 21, 2010


Adam and Lynette have a new baby girl...Ava Lynn Smajstrla was born at 5:32 am and weighed 9lbs 2 oz and was 21 inches long. Everyone is doing fine. So proud to have a new niece in the family. Mom says she looks just like Jace, and he is a cutie pie!

Rick had ANOTHER good! I'm so impressed with him. In PT this morning he went up and down the stairs. One time he even had to put his back against the wall and use the railing to side step up the was tough for him, but he worked it out. He also got to swim again today. They put flippers on his feet (something I never thought I would see on Rick) and made him walk. The flippers made him overexagerate his steps. He fell a couple of times and got his face wet, but it didn't bother him too bad. Then he hung on to the side of the pool and kicked his feet to make big splashes. It's so amazing what he can do in the really frees him up. He had a good speech session and is using his voice more and more outside of speech without anyone prompting him to. He is also doing very good with his thin liquids; in 2 days he's only choked once, and that's only because he was chugging his Coke.

Praying that we end the week as good as we have started.


Tuesday, April 20, 2010

DAY 303

I didn't think we could top yesterday, but we did. First of all, he was weighed this morning, and...drumroll please....he weighs 171! Unbelievable! Then he went for a walk with Laura. Instead of using the walker, she walked beside him, and it was THE BEST steps he has ever taken. She had to help keep him standing straight up and not leaning too much, but his step were awesome. He walked 100 feet and not one time did he drag his toe on his left foot, he was able to pick it up every time. He was also able to control the scissoring. He sat down and took a break and then walked another 100 feet and it was just as good. Then he had roping group and for the first time ever, he actually threw his loop. Usually he swings it back and forth and finally just reaches out and puts it over the horns. But this time he threw it! And he was able to coil it up a few times. Praise God for all His goodness, for all His blessings.

Please say a prayer for my brother and sister-in-law. Lynette is in the hospital in labor with baby #2...a girl named Ava. Please pray for an easy delivery and for the health of Mama and baby.

Good night and God Bless,

Monday, April 19, 2010

DAY 301 & 302

Yesterday isn't even worth talking and sleep, eat and know, his typical weekend! Today, however, is a day that we've been looking forward to. Today is the day that Rick finally got officially changed to thin liquids! He can drink anything he wants to without thickener! Woo Hoo! Way to go Rick! He also got to go swimming again today and didn't get motion sickness on the bus! I took the kids all the way back to Seymour yesterday, and didn't get back to TLC until 11 o'clock this morning. The kids are probably going to be able to talk me into that every weekend, but I don't mind!

Thank you for all your prayers...God is listening!


Saturday, April 17, 2010

DAY 299 & 300

Yesterday was such a good day for Rick. He was re-evaled in OT and had great improvement in his hand strength, his dexterity, and math skills. The last time he did math, he was only able to do problems like 8-5 and 15+8, but yesterday he was doing 125.85 - 34.22 and he did them faster and with better accuracy. It's so good to see progress, especially when it's as black and white as this is. Brenda Duckworth came by at lunch and Rick was really talking good to her...really trying to get his voice "on". The outing yesterday was to the Lubbock Arts Festival. Rick was with his PT's during the outing so the had to climb stairs while we were there. He did 2 flights of 12 steps a piece...down and back up. He handled it really well and even tried to take the stairs 2 at a time on the way back up. We were able to convince him that one step at a time was good enough. There were several people that informed us there was an elevator, and acted like we were either mean or crazy when we said it was for his therapy. He was rewarded for his hard work when we found the food aisle. He bought 6 slices of cake and could've cared less about the rest of the art festival! When he was loaded on the van, he got out of his chair and climbed the steps to the bus. Yesterday was the first time ever that he didn't get motion sickness when travelling. Laura has been addressing his motion sickness problems, and so yesterday we decided not to give him his nausea medicine before the outing and he was able to stay focused and not throw up. That's huge...we have been dealing with motion sickness for months! I'm so thankful that this is clearing up, and the continued healing in Rick's brain. Praise Jesus!

I picked the kids up in Dickens in a downpour, and we got back to Lubbock in time for them to entertain Rick for a little while before bed. Rick didn't want to get up this morning, so again, breakfast ran into lunch. Cassie DeFiori came by for a visit and he enjoyed talking about the goings on at the mare barn.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (curing their pains and sorrows). He determines and counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names. Great is our Lord and of great power; His understanding is inexhaustible and boundless. Psalm 147:3-5.


Thursday, April 15, 2010

DAY 298

Today was PB & J day. Rick made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in OT today all by himself. He completed each step without any help...took the lids off the jars, spread the peanut butter and the jelly, slapped it together, and ate it! Cade was excited...he said, "yea, now Daddy can make me one!" He had 2 PT sessions and 2 speech sessions. We had a visit from Ronda and Trey Thompson this afternoon. It was great to see them and it's great therapy for Rick. Looking forward to seeing the kids tomorrow.

God Bless,

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

DAY 297

It was a great day. The swimming was fabulous! When we were at Baylor, Rick got in the pool and had to be put in the pool by a hoist. Today he got in and out by walking up and down the stairs. He did several laps of walking...the water is 4ft deep and warm. But then wanted to swim. Laura wanted him to show her that he could hold his breath first. He acted like it was a stupid request, but slowly lowered himself under the water and held his breath for about 5 seconds. So, they put a noodle under his chest and he would put his face under water and kick his legs and use his arms to swim. One time he even held his breath for 17 seconds! He said he really enjoyed swimming so maybe that will be a regular thing. We had a team meating today and each therapist had great things to say. His strength in his knees has improved a whole muscle grade and in his hips a half muscle grade. Emily (OT) has seen improvements in all his ADL's...daily living activities such as dressing, shaving and brushing his teeth. Meridith (ST) is still considering a move to thin liquids and is pushing Rick to speak louder.

Again, as long as they see progress they will keep him, if/when he plateus is when they will consider discharging him. Please keep praying for him...he's doing so good...praise the Lord!


Tuesday, April 13, 2010

DAY 296

Rick had to take a test today in PT...the Berg Balance Test. This is the first time he's even been able to attempt the test because he wasn't ready for it. He scored an 18 out of's a start. He had roping group and stood to rope. He did good, but he wants to do it perfect. I had to give him a little kick in the pants to get him going this will all come together. His new "iron horse" aka wheelchair, will be here on April 30th. We're all really excited for this. The chair he is currently in has a lot of support and extras that he doesn't need anymore. Plus the new chair will be a conventional chair with the big back wheels that he can start pushing with his arms which will be great for his coordination and strength. Most exciting news of the day is that Rick is going to the pool tomorrow! I just can't wait...I even bought him some new swimtrunks and boy are they cute! Turquoise blue with white flowers. He wasn't as thrilled about them as I was! The pool is at Covenant Hospital so we will leave here around 1:00 and drive's just a few blocks away.

Riley will be in Vernon tomorrow for a twirling competition. I wish I had an idea of what time she'll be peforming, but I have no idea. I do know that she will be at the Wilbarger Auditorium for the 4-H Fun Day.

Please say a prayer for our friend Chelsea Sellers. She is a former patient of TLC and is getting her baclofen pump placed tomorrow...this could make the difference in her being able to walk again!

Show me your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and faithfulness and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You do I wait expectantly all the day long. Psalm 25:4-5

I thank the Lord for all the guidance he's given me throughout this impossible ordeal. And for all the guidance that is yet to come.


Monday, April 12, 2010

DAY 295

I got the kids to school this morning, stopped at the 6666's round pen to visit with Chance O'Neal for a few minutes, and made it back to TLC in time to see Rick outside roping the was a great sight. His swing is getting better and better. I missed his morning therapies and didn't get a chance to visit with his therapists to see what he did. He took a nap from 1-2 and then had standing frame, speech therapy, and nursing education group. He just keeps on keepin' on and I'm so glad that his attitude has remained positive and that he is still determined to make a full recovery. God is good!

Good night!

Sunday, April 11, 2010

DAY 293 & 294

Friday wore Rick out so much, that yesterday morning, he got up to use the bathroom and went right back to bed and slept until 11:00. He ate his breakfast burrito, and as so0n as he was done with it, lunch got here, so he just stayed right where he was and ate enchiladas. After that we watched the movie Major Payne and he laughed...out loud. It wasn't his funny, girly giggle, but it was a laugh. We went to church this morning and really enjoyed it. Afterwards, Jayme's (one of the techs) mom and step brother came to TLC. Her stepbrother, Cody, was in a bad car accident in Sept '08 and suffered a TBI. He was a patient at TLC for 6 months. It was really good to see and hear the progress he has made. He is completely independent now. He talks very softly, and has a slight hitch in his get-a-long, but other than that he's good. It was very interesting to hear of the progress he made even after leaving TLC...progress that he made all on his own. It was very inspiring.

I am taking the kids back to Seymour this afternoon and will spend the night with them and then head back to Lubbock in the morning after I drop them off at school. Rick said he was good with that.

God Bless,

Friday, April 9, 2010

DAY 292

Today was a most wonderful day. This morning he did laundry in OT and moved his left hand and arm the best I've ever seen him move it. In PT he had a re-eval...I try not to sit in on those so as not to be a distraction. Kelly and Terry Haynes came by around lunch, and went out to Hold Your Horses, the theraputic riding facility with us. Rick was really happy to see them, and get caught up on the goings on in the Haynes family...and there was a lot to catch up on! Rick got really tickled listening to their stories about their kids. While we were at Hold Your Horses, he was petting on and brushing a little 10 year old gelding, but when he saw the mares and foals, that's where he wanted to go. He stood up at the gate and one mare and foal came over right away. He really enjoyed being there...the atomosphere alone was worth the trip. Now, at this point in the blog, you ladies may want to quit reading, but the men are really going to get a kick out of (and identify with) what happened next. Rick decides that he needs to use the bathroom...he went to the bathroom right before we left TLC. So, I said, "Rick, you just want to pee outside, don't you!" And he smiled and said yes. So, he stood at the gate and you got it...marked his territory! So, that's another milestone...not one I would've thought before today! I met my Dad in Dickens to pick up the kids, and Rick stayed awake until 8:30 to see them and watch a little tv. But, the day absolutely wore him out and he was happy to see his bed tonight.

We have such great friends and family. You'll never know what all of your support has meant to us through all of this...thank you so much.

Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfectly and fully developed lacking in nothing. James 1:3-4.


Thursday, April 8, 2010

DAY 291

Rick walked with the rolling walker in both of his PT sessions today. In the afternoon session, they tried turning the walker around backwards so that he wouldn't lean so far forward when he pushes it. And it worked really well. His posture was much better and therefore, so were his steps. In OT he shaved this morning and did a decent job. In about 35 minutes he got 1/2 of his face shaved. In ST, Meredith told him if he could show her that he can take sips of thin water for a week without chugging it, then she would switch him to thin liquids for all liquids. He is still following the Frasier Water Protocol and does really good until he starts chugging it. When he chugs, he chokes. Cristi Schur came by for a quick visit and asked Rick if he was getting into trouble and said, "just a little bit." I can't wait until he's getting into a lot of trouble!

Ready for Friday...still have plans of going to see the therapy horses.


Wednesday, April 7, 2010

DAY 290

Much better day today. Rick was ready to go to work this morning. He had PT first and worked on sit to stands and balancing against the wall. He stood for 45 minutes in the standing frame and then had ST. He talked really good in ST, very loud and clear. He also worked on some cognitive things in ST and did very good with those things, too. After lunch, he laid down for a nap, then got up for OT. Emily worked on strengthening and stretching his arms. Today was one of the other patients birthdays and she always cracks Rick up. I left this afternoon to buy Robyn a b-day present and a pizza for supper. She turned 22 today, and Rick said, "I wish I was 22 again." This afternoon the program director met with the caterers to discuss the meals for the patients. We have had some meals that were pretty disapppointing and she asked for my input since I'm always here. Rick told me to "go get 'em". They were very open to suggestions and hopefully we'll get some better meals in a week or two.

We have had some bumps in the road and sometimes wonder when will we ever catch a break, but throughout all of this we have received some wonderful blessings. There really are great people in this world. Thank you so much to everyone for the prayers and all the wonderful things you have done for us. Speaking of wonderful things, so glad my roomdogs made it home from San Antonio today. They have been playing around at the womens NCAA final four and I have been home alone...and I don't like it!

Good night and God Bless!

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

DAY 289

Rick caught another mild case of the stomach bug and was in bed all day today. It started at 2:45 am with vomitting and diarrhea. It stopped at 8 am and he has held down lots of pedialyte, water and 2 pieces of toast and napped most of the day. He is feeling much better tonight. He was so funny this morning. He told me to "find some medicine and take it before you get this virus." I said, "Don't worry about me Rick." And he said, "I am worried about you."

We found out today that Rick has a special outing planned for Friday. While the other patients are playing softball, Rick is going to a ranch that has therapy horses...really looking forward to that.

Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God's love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us. Romans 5:5


Monday, April 5, 2010


So, I made a fast trip to Seymour and back today, but still got to spend a decent amount of time with each of the kids. I really enjoyed recess with the 2nd graders today...all asking about "Cade's Dad"...they are so sweet. When I got back to TLC , I asked Rick if he remembered why I went to Seymour and he said, "take Riley her clarinet." I get so excited when he remembers things...that's so huge. His schedule said that the walked 179 ft and then climbed the stairs in PT, and worked on dressing in OT. He also played bowling on the Wii and stood in the standing frame. His ST told me that he read to her today at 58 decibels and was very clear. He did really good today...I'm really proud of him for being able to make his wants and needs known to everyone without me being there.

Thanks for all the Easter cards...we loved them. Keep believing in the Lord to answer our prayers.


Sunday, April 4, 2010



We went to church this morning at Wolforth again. Curtis had a great message and again the members of that church were so welcoming. Rick choked a little bit this morning while taking his meds, and it scared the Techs. Luckily, Kim, the nurse at TLC, was at church with her stethascope (how handy) and she listened to Rick's lungs and everything sounded fine. When we got back to TLC my mom and dad were here with a huge lunch prepared. For dessert...buttermilk pie...Rick's request. We took a few pictures and then Rick laid down for a nap. The kids left with my mom and dad and about an hour and a half after they left I got a phone call...Riley left her clarinet here. So, I will be making a trip to Seymour tomorrow to deliver it.

Hope everyone had a great Easter.

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, the women went to the tomb, taking the spices which they had made ready. And they found the stone rolled back from the tomb, But when they went inside, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And while they were perplexed and wondering what to do about this, behold, two men in dazzling raiment suddenly stood beside them. And as the women were frightened and were bowing thier faces to the ground, the men said to them, Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen! Remember how He told you while He was still in Galilee. That the Son of Man must be given over into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise. Luke 24:1-7.


Friday, April 2, 2010


With no therapies today, we didn't do much of anything. For lunch, the techs made tacos with homemade salsa, guacamole, and queso. Then homemade ice cream and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. It was delicious. About the time we were wrapping up lunch, Aunt Chyral, Granny B and Darrell stopped by. Darrell was carrying a cooler and he said, "look what I brought you Rick!" And boy did Rick's eyes light up...unfortunately there wasn't any Bud Light in the cooler, but there were homemade devilled eggs and Grocery Sack burritos! Can you believe it? We were all excited about that. I don't know how Rick could hold another ounce, but he ate a couple of eggs and then had some muffins that Chyral made. We had a really great visit, and then of course Rick was in need of a nap. After his nap we visited some more and then they had to head back to Vernon. The ABC Pro Rodeo is in town and we're hoping to go to the afternoon performance tomorrow. Uncle Bobby did not get a good report today and will have to have open heart surgery on Monday to have 4-5 bypasses. He will be in the hospital until the surgery because the doctor felt it was too great a risk to let him go. Please keep the Cochran family in you prayers...Uncle Bobby is a good man.

It was now about the sixth hour (midday), and the darkness enveloped the whole land and earth until the ninth hour (about three o'clock in the afternoon). While the sun's light faded and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. And JesusG, crying out with a loud voice, said, Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit! And with these words, He expired. Luke 23:44-46.

God Bless.


Thursday, April 1, 2010

DAY 283 & 284

I left TLC yesterday at 2:30 and headed to Seymour. Rick was having another good day, he was tired from having his baclofen pump bumped up and needed a nap, but other than that he was doing pretty good. I ate lunch with Riley today and went to Cade's Easter egg hunt. We got back to Lubbock at 6:30 and Rick was eating supper...said he had a good day, and was happy to see us. One of the techs made the kids some confetti eggs and they got into those, and went after everyone, including each other. After cleaning up that mess, Rick took a shower and went to bed. Since tomorrow is Good Friday there will not be any therapy.

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread and praising God, gave thanks and asked Him to bless it to their use, and when he had broken it, he gave it to the disciples and said, Take, eat; this is My body. And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, Drink of it, all of you; For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:26-28

Please include Rick's uncle Bobby Cochran in your prayers. He is having heart problems that will hopefully be addressed tomorrow.
