Your prayers are working!

I went to the hospital on Saturday. Christian continues to make good progress, though it looks like he will stay there another week because he needs a little more skin grafting, but is doing so well that he probably won't need to go to the rehab facility after all. He will have outpatient rehab instead. That will make it much easier for him to visit Stephanie. Hooray!

Stephanie's skin grafts seem to be doing pretty well. Thanks for all of your prayers! I know they are working!!! Her mom and sisters are here this weekend, which I know makes such a difference for her. They are so strong and amazing.

Saturday evening was the world-wide Relief Society meeting. I watched the broadcast at our stake center with my mom and 3 of my sisters. It was so good to be with them, along with my sisters in the gospel. The meeting was fantastic. If you missed it, you can watch it here. I know that Stephanie would have loved to have been there. I'm sure she will be anxious to watch it as soon as she can. I particularly loved Sister Beck's talk, and President Uchtdorf's talk. I thought the choir did a fantastic job too; not bad for a bunch of amateurs! :)


  1. I too watched it at my stake center in Mililani, Hi. I loved Pres. Uchtdorf's talk also. It inspired so many feelings in me. Working together CAN make a difference! This has been proven in the case of C&S. Praying for you to also have strength.

    That is such good news!

  5. I really enjoy your blog. I have been following your brother and sister in law's accident and recovery. My husband was in a crash as well 4-17-08, he is doing well. I did have the chance to meet and visit with your parents a few weeks back. You have an amazing family. We will keep you all in our prayers as you all recover.

  6. The power of prayer!!! Miracles can and do happen and aren't we so grateful for this knowledge.

    I'm glad Christian will still be able to visit Stephanie! (That is wonderful news that he doesn't have to go to a rehab center. It will certainly help with the medical bills.) I'm absolutely sure she feels his presence as well as the rest of you giving her courage and love.

    Hang it there.

  7. Alice, I don't have your e-mail... send it...

    The restaurant sounds fantastic! I've always thought grits sounded wierd. I just hope there weren't any onoins in Jay's food.

  9. Alice,
    I will sometimes read the reposts on Nie Nie and all through Pres. Uchtdorf's talk I thought about her and how amazing she is at creating. I was inspired to try a little harder to make my home more cozy for my family. I was also glad to have some ideas from her wonderful blog of creativity. Still praying for her and all of you, thankful the prayers are being felt!

  10. I'm just a mom in Columbus, Ohio who follows the NieNie blog:) I wanted you to know that we are praying for you and your family. I feel so full of love when I read Stephanie's sisters blog and now yours. You guys are wonderful. xoxo!
