Going Going Gone

Exciting news to report:

Dan's halo is off!

Bill called Dan's neurosurgeon last week to inquire about when the halo would come off; that started the staff here to ask about the timing [sooner is better than later]; soon x-rays were ordered; the neurosurgeon viewed them, came over for a visit and just removed it!

Dan will wear a neck brace for about a month, until he builds up his neck muscles, but he already feels better. (and of course, Mom gave him his big hug.)

Thank you for praying for us. We know that we are not the only hurting people in this world -- many face much greater aches that we have, so knowing that you think of us, makes us feel quite special.

Beseeched the Lord on behalf of Dan and the Knudsen family last night while reading Psalm 34. So glad to hear the good news about no halo and the little update about the twins. So cute! Many thoughts,
