Pray for Maureen (Moe) Mitchell

Thanks for asking. I went for my 8 wk check up on Thursday. My donor bones are fusing nicely with my real bone and my incision is healing very well. My right hand not so much. The doc’s office called yesterday AM and I’m scheduled for nerve testing on Oct 5. I’ll then go back to the doc for a follow-up to discuss the results as well as next steps. I now have to wear a carpel tunnel wrist splint in my right to sleep in. It’s not fun because of the pressure and pain it puts on my hand. I’m not noticing a difference wearing it but I’ll give it until the end of the week. If it’s not making a difference by then I’ll call the doc. I still tire easily but that’s just part of the process. My “Recovery Supervisor” (AKA Nat) is doing his best to pace me! It gets frustrating sometimes because my mind is saying yea you can do that but the reality is I can’t. L

Hazel Veal- death of a mom

After a long battle with illness and deteriorating health and faculties, Hazel Veal’s mother is now in heaven. Hazel’s sister was lovingly tending to her when she just peacefully “went to sleep.” Her son is on his way here to pick her up and they will be leaving today to “take care of things.” She is not sure how long it will be until she returns. Please remember this precious family as they grieve this loss so soon after the loss of their father.

Cards can be sent to Hazel at 3205 Grandiflora Place – Powder Springs, GA 30127.

Brittany on the road to recovery

Just a quick update: Brittany is recovering very well, she is eating well and took a shower today by herself ( of course with momma right there),
with a little help washing all that hair… Her staples are looking good, healing right up. There are 30 staples to be exact.. I spoke to her doctor today,
when Brittany feels up to it, she can go back to school. OMG…..Brittany’s follow up with the Neuro-surgeon is Oct. 13th 3pm.

Brittany is going to school that day to take her SAT test, we look forward to seeing those scores so soon after brain surgery.

Brittany took a short walk around our circle in front of our house tonight, which seem to be a bit to much, I just gave her some medicine and put her to bed
for the night. She is able to go up and down our 15 steps with no help. OMG (oh my gosh!) She is just amazing…

Our Prayer today: Was to give God all the Praise..Wow, what a testimony Brittany has to tell.

A "BigThank You" for all the emails, cards and visitors….and the home cooked meals..

God is so Good…He still has Brittany in his Hands..

We Love you all,
Patty, Larry, Brittany and Brianna
