Evelyn is feeling much better today. Even last night it was wonderful to see the swelling in her abdomen was greatly reduced and she was up and walking today, sitting for awhile in the playroom. We had to convince her to rest this afternoon so as not to push herself too quickly. It is great to see her healing and moving in the right direction. Dr Mercer expects that her drain should slow down in output over 4-5 days and her digestion should slowly resume over this time as well. Already, her appetite is back somewhat and her ostomy has also put out more than it has in days. Little steps forward!

Thank you to everyone for your love, prayers, gifts and words of encouragement during this latest set-back. We’re hoping for a smooth, steady recovery, as God wills.

Continue to remember us.
