This blogger stopped by to see Mike Deming this morning. My shift at Strong Medical Center ended so I went on up to the seven floor of the hospital, popped my head in and, lo and behold, he was awake. I stayed for about an hour and a half and we chatted. Considering what Mike has been through, he is doing very well. (He’s a wee bit cranky from lack of sleep though – grin – but who can sleep in a noisy hospital?). Did you know that today (July 3rd) is Mike Deming’s birthday? Poor fella has to spend it in a hospital room.
Mike’s surgeon stopped by and let him know that next Tuesday they are letting him go home! He has a few small exercises he is to do throughout the day. They will be having him walk a few times today also. When I left, he was sitting up eating breakfast. Let there be no doubt that the Lord has heard your prayers, Gospel Light, and has given Mike the strength and spirit to endure.
