Dec. 3

So... Friday was a day full of little miracles and progress. Sue was able to get her breathing to a Point that they removed the respirator for now. The doctors said that they still may need to put her back on the respirator but felt that she could do without it for now and she would be more comfortable. Sue has opened one eye and can recognize people. She has squeezed our hands and given some of us a little pat. At one point she even gave a couple of her sons a little wave when they entered or left the room. 

Sue is getting great care from an incredible staff of doctors and nurses and technicians working on her what seems to be nearly non stop. We are so grateful  to all the professionals working for her recovery. The University of Utah Medical Center has a tremendous reputation and they deserve all of it.

It has been so humbling to receive so many well wishes and offers of prayers and fasting in our behalf. We want everyone of our treasured friends and wonderful priesthood leaders to know that those prayers and the fasts have yielded miracles in Sue's life and in the lives of our family. Our family has an incredible peace and assurance that wherever we may be heading in terms of Sue's recovery that the Lord will bless us with everything we need when we need it. We are also grateful for all the expressions of love and offers of assistance that we have received. Honestly it is overwhelming and warming to know how loved Sue is. Please know that Sue and I love you all right back.

Please continue to keep Sue in your prayers.
