Uneventful Week

Riddle #1 What has 1 SUV, pulling a trailer, filled with stuff, wandering around MD, PA, NY & OH?

Riddle #2 What 2 people would be taking advantage of their son's hospital stay to move their daughter out east, see pandas at a zoo, browse Amish goods, watch lots of water go over a fall, and enjoy much needed quiet time together?

The answer is: Bill & Deb

Dan said it would be okay if we helped move our daughter out east, and that is what we have been doing this week. [why are newlywed apartments still so tiny?].

We are blessed to have you our family and friends "checkinondan" during his surgery and 2 week bed rest at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He has not required any overnight coverage, and is enjoying good conversations with his daytime relief sitters.

Thank you for trekking downtown to help and loving Dan as your own!


Daily we talk to him and his relief sitters, AND check in with the doctors and nurses at NMH, who are getting better at addressing the needs of a vent patient. [they don't have many]

Pray for:
  • his healing of the "flap" that is covering his back sore.
  • that his therapies would not be set back too much because of having to be in bed these 2 weeks. [he was just cleared by his plastic surgeon to start limited physical therapy, in his bed]
  • work on his "temporary room" at home that will accommodate his needs.
  • us, that we would be able to think through, plan, find and purchase items for his eventual being at home.
  • preparing our home and listing it for sale.
  • finding a lot to build a home.
  • that his twin nieces would be home soon.
Although we are miles apart from Dan [like many of you], he consumes most of our thoughts and discussion. It's our new life; not always understood, but embracing by His grace.

Your son is so brave. I came to your blog through a friend of mine and keep him on my blog reader so I can pray for Dan and your family.

I had an aunt who was paralyzed on her left side when she was young, so I understand a little of what you guys are going through especially in these early stages. She became the light of my life and I have never been more blessed by anyone than her.

Riddle #3: Who rides through Buffalo New York, with their windows down yelling personal comments out the window?

Answer: Bill & Debbie

Hey, glad you guys are back safely, wondering how long it took you.

The Knudsen clan is a blessing as you show what it means to Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

I believe your path is straighter than most as you are courageously leaning on the Father.

Your faith is simply contagious and I thank God for the opportunity to read your blog and pray for you. To have others ask me about you and know that we're all part of praising the Father as we worship Him together.

Praying for you, all!

Hey dan, keep checking in to see if there is any update. Hope you're doing good and you are almost past the 2 weeks of bed rest. Think about you and pray for you every time I see your pic on the fridge down here. :-)
