Saturday, April 16th

Today was a good day! Jacob only had 3 hours of therapy and was done at 1:30. What to do? We certainly couldn’t just sit around and do nothing…it was unanimous – The Children’s Museum! We were there for about 2 1/2 hours. Jacob definately enjoyed himself a lot more than Caleb. I think it was mostly because Jacob was just excited to get out and have some fun. We had a good time though. We then ran some errands. Who knew getting out to Meijers could be so much fun. I’m getting stir-crazy being here too! We got something to eat and headed back to MFB.

Soon after, Jacob’s Uncle Neil, Aunt Kristina and cousin Brady came for a visit. What a great way to end a nice day!

Please continue to pray for Jacobs physical therapy. We would love to be able to get out of here soon and just do outpatient therapy. I know Jacobs getting burned out from living in a hospital, as am I. Also, please continue to pray for Jacobs healing and Gods will for his life!

    Weird illness, strange location miles from home without your whole family. Living that life for weeks…I think you have the right to be a little stir-crazy. It’s tough to stay positive…remember…each day of treatment/therapy is one day closer to going home. Our thoughts and prayers are there for you all.

    Hi Jacob, Well I see why they have given you the nick name ‘Iron Man’. Wow! You sure have to stay tough. You are showing us all what being strong really means. The Red Wings have won their first two games. I wondered if you would be able to see or hear the games. They could use your grit and fight to keep winning.
    We got 8 inches of new wet, heavy snow this weekend. Our old muddy road had just begun to dry up. Rats! The birds are all huddled against the house.
    I think of you so much. Keep up your good work with the therapy. I’m thankful I can keep in touch with you through this wonderful site.
    Lots of love! XOXOXOXO

    Hey Jacob!
    What fun that you got to get out and see a little bit of the city there. Childrens’ museums are fun. It snowed up here in the U.P on saturday!! Can you believe that! Snow in April! And it happened just after all the old snow had melted.

    I was going through my pictures from Day Camp and found a couple of cool pictures of you and one of your brother. It made me think of how much fun you had there and how glad Pastor Ron and I are to have met you. We keep praying for you. Our Jesus is just awesome! You are pretty awesome too, Jacob.

    Here are a couple of jokes for you:

    How many balls of string would it take to reach the moon?
    Just one if it’s long enough!

    Where do tadpoles change?
    In a croakroom!

    Ms. Tami
