All dressed up and no place to go

Both Luke and I are all ready to go to church, but since it is almost over we are sitting here listening to worship music wishing that our church started a bit later. Though we realize that's silly since it already starts at 10:30, which seems to be a pretty good time for the majority of the people. Luke has been doing great this week as far as his oxygen levels have been going, which has been a huge answer to prayer, but of course it seems once we get one reason taken care of not getting any sleep there seems to be another one. For some reason Luke decided that he wanted to wake up and yell for me to be by his side from about 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. last night. Needless to say getting to bed that late it get's a bit challenging to get up really early for church. Oh well, perhaps we will be there on time next week.

I'm pretty sure that I mentioned in our last blog posting that we were blessed to get 20 HBOT dives donated to Luke from the HUGS Foundation. If you are ever looking for a place to bless those that need your support the HUGS Foundation is surely a very viable place, they have blessed many children that have suffered from near drowning accidents. Please check out their website, it is, which is always posted on the side of Luke's blog in his blogger friend link section off to the right. I've been wanting to get Luke back into the chamber for many months now, but money and time has restrained me from taking him, now that the money has been generously donated I will find the time to take him at least 2 to 3 times a week until all the dives are done. HBOT has been known to help Luke's muscle tone issues, his eyes have gotten better with tracking, it has also helped his seizures and keeps him generally more healthy.

This week my good friend Yoli was blessed to have a visit by her sister Becky who is from CA. Becky has generously opened her home many times to our family and to those that have gone on missions trip down to Mexico. It was so wonderful to be able to bless her and her grandson Aidan, we had them over for lasagna on Wednesday night. Then on Thursday we went to Poulsbo for the day. While Becky, Yoli and I did a little shopping the girls did some painting. There is a wonderful place there where you can sit and paint for hours, we all had a wonderful day.

Thank you for your prayers, I'm doing much better, getting a little more sleep has really helped me. Santana is home from the hospital and he is doing better, though still needs a complete healing from his surgery site that is still bleeding a little bit. Jerry could still use your prayers, he has had a few set backs from another surgery he had two weeks ago, though doing a little better now. His wife Brenda needs prayer for wisdom as she needs to know where to get Jerry the best help that he needs right now in his recovery of the anoxic brain injury that he suffered on the operation table in November, during his kidney transplant. They have 5 children at home, so Brenda is juggling working full time, while keeping the kids and her home in order and then trying to get up to see Jerry as often as she can, he is in a Hospital in Seattle which is a good hour drive from their home. Also please pray that these HBOT treatments for Luke will help get his knee's to bend. Thank you for your faithful prayers, we sure do appreciate you!

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

Dear Sue,
Just wanted to say hi and let you know that I still read Luke's blog every time you update it and I pray for him and your family all the time. In fact, every time I take my turn on that little game we play on facebook, it reminds me of Luke and I stop and pray for him.

Just wanted to drop a note to tell you that although I don't post a lot, our family still prays for Luke every night. My five year old, 8 yo, and 10 yo always remember to pray for him. Hugs to you, dear sister!
