Headed Home

David finished his three weeks of in-patient rehabilitation.  He was discharged on Thursday.

Somehow in the rush to pack I forgot to pack work-out shorts for David (probably because rehab was not yet on my radar). These were sent to him from his brother in law, Sergi…they are the same shorts the USA basketball team wore during the Olympics.

Today, Friday, we had a 9am doctor’s appointment at the hospital.  After x-rays, discussions, reading medical records, and an exam, David was cleared for international travel.

The children have been home since Tuesday.  My parents took them to David’s parent’s in Champaign.  We miss them terribly, and are ready to get home.

And now we have tickets for tomorrow, Saturday the 25th.  We will be in Chicago by dinner.  We’re ready to be home.

    Praise God! So glad are doing so well. We here at Christ UMC in College Station have been following your progress. What a miracle. Blessing to all.

  12. David and Shannon, can’t tell you how excited I was today to talk with Trish and hear you were all here in the states!!!! Thrilled that you are continuing to improve, David. You are all constantly in my prayers. God is my constant companion and is being very faithful to my family and me. We had Dave’s graveside service on Friday and it is so good to have him here. You are so right, it has been a long forty days. But I am so thankful we made this trip! It was such a blessing to be with you all in Ukraine. I think about the ministry and pray for all daily. Love to you all! Cathy Nevotti
