Y'all have overwhelmed by your kindness, THANK YOU!

I would like to begin by saying that I'm overwhelmed by your amazing responses to my last blog post. I don't feel worthy of all your praise, I'm just a Mom trying to live my life according to what I feel God wants me to do. Thank you for all your continued prayers, they are so amazing and powerful.

Luke is doing a bit better. I do believe that he is finally starting to swallow a little bit again, this is a huge answer to prayer. We are not having to suction him nearly anywhere the amount that we were having to do last week. Nights have been so much better, I only had to suction him twice last night and he has only been on a little bit of oxygen at night, this is a huge answer to prayer.

My wonderful husband has blessed me by sending me on a 3 day cruise with some good friends for my birthday. I will fly down to LA on April 28th and catch the cruise on the 30th, which is my birthday. It is a repositioning cruise which means it goes from LA to Vancouver BC with no port stops along the way. My only goals for the this vacation are to relax, sleep, play games, read, eat and have fun, I'm praying for no stress that week. I have been having some health problems lately and most of them are related to the fact that I've been under too much stress, therefore have been told by numerous people that I need to take a break from the stress. Please be praying that Luke is healthy, that is the only way that I know to have a completely stress free week.

Once again thank you for your amazing support and prayers, they mean more than I can ever say!

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi

It sounds like this cruise is just what the doctor ordered! I am so glad you can kick back and relax, it is well deserved!
See you next week, hopefully!

So glad to hear Luke is doing better! Your cruise sounds like a lot of fun, and will hopefully be just the thing you need to refresh and renew! If you have any extra time while in LA give me a call, I live closeby!

I haven't been here much at all since Easter. Since my Uncle past away. Coming here today and reading all the posts... my eyes filled with tears. I have followed Luke from the very first week after the accident. YOU have touched my life in such a way I will never be the same. I pray for him often....

You and I are cyber friends, snail mail and even phone pals.... but my slow computer has discouraged me.

As I was reading what you posted below this one.... I truly believe the enemy wants us to give up, lose hope... and so often I am there. This past week was a tough one. But as always God continues to pull me out of the pit....

I am praying for your trip... I wonder if you will see this before you go?

I love you.... and I am always here. :)

I just want to let you know that we are still praying for Luke's healing up here in Alaska. My kids and I pray for him every single night. Thanks, too, for the encouragement to not give up. I have a situation that I've been praying about for over 20 years, and just yesterday I said that I have about given up hope. Then tonight I read your post, and God used it to encourage me. Thanks. I hope you have a marvelous time on your cruise. Enjoy this gift!!

I want you to know that we read about you and Luke. :D

I am so glad that you will be able to have some time to regenerate.

You have such a wonderful heart. I need to work on softening mine some.

Lots of love and hugs,

Tammy and Parker
