We’re going home!!! November 12th is D-day. It has been almost 6 months of ICU, hospital, and rehab. It is time for Lawrence to go home. It will be difficult but we are praying for a miracle as he still does not have the use of his right arm and leg.

We have purchased a transport wheelchair van, a wheelchair lift, a scooter, a hospital bed and expecting Medicare to supply a commode, wheelchair and a transfer board (so I can get him from the wheelchair to bed and back. We were hoping to raise enough money to accommodate our expenses but sadly it did not happen. All these items cost over $10,000 and that is a great deal. And of course, there is the expense of registering the vehicle and 15-20 medications he will need on a monthly basis. I have taken out a loan to supply all his needs. I am trusting God to provide the means to pay it back with interest. Thank you to all your donations and prayers. He still has a long way to go, but with your prayers and God’s help he will improve over time. We are keeping a positive attitude and holding God’s promise in our hearts.

I want to personally thank all Lawrence’s friends at Temple Sinai who have written letters and sent cards. It really means a lot to him to know someone cares. He enjoys hearing about “the real world” and how everyone is doing. He has been in the hospital or in rehab for over 5 months and is amazed it is now November. We are working on transferring from the bed to the wheelchair. It sounds easy, but believe me it is not. A great deal of balance and strength are required. We are trying to have a ramp built and ordering medical supplies. This is a daunting task. I don’t know how we are going to be able to afford all the things he needs to be able to come home, but I also know, God will find away. Thank you for your continued support and prayers. What we really need is a fundraiser.
