Sarah here again. Today Chris had another pretty good day – very similar to yesterday – cracking jokes, going for walks, praying, and chatting with visitors. Chris had asked Pastor Pat to come and give him communion, so family members joined him for that as well. Chris’s sister Rhonda is staying with him tonight, so Chris was looking forward to some QT with his sister.
Chris also asked that I take a photo of him and post it on the blog so that people know what he looks like right now:
As Chris was getting ready for his evening walk, Karen told him to be careful (as the roads and sidewalks are very slippery) and she said he then proceeded to literally “skip” out the door. Defiant, yet charming, as always.
I also read all of the blog comments from Thursday’s post to Chris (thank you for your comments!), then Chris started asking me about the blog statistics again. So we spent some time on the computer looking through the statistics graphs and tables, and Chris asked “so what’s the easiest way to post these statistics to the blog…maybe copying them out to Word and then pasting them into the blog?”. He really wanted me to share the statistics – I think he’s starting to understand how many people he’s touched throughout his journey, so here are the statistics that I promised him I would post (click on the graphics to zoom in):
Thanks again for all of your comments, prayers, and visits!
Sarah (on behalf of Chris and his family)
