My Old Man

I can't believe it's been a week since I updated this- sorry, but at least I've got good news. After 3 weeks & 1 day Drew was discharged from Winter Park Memorial Hospital! Last Monday he was released and flew home later that night. It was a long, exhausting day for Drew but he made it- hooray! Drew’s right side of his face is slowly catching up with the left side. He will start physical therapy in the next few days. Right now Drew is working on gaining the 15 pounds he lost in the hospital.

On Tuesday I drove from Orlando to Nashville (only stopped one time!) and then on Wednesday from Nashville to Chicago. I am so happy to be able to be with Drew and help out his family. For now I am working from Drew’s home in Chicago.

Yesterday I went into Drew’s doctor’s office. We stopped by to pick up paperwork for at home physical therapy and a handicapped-parking tag. The precious lady at the front desk looked at Julia and I and said ‘It’s just so hard when they get old’. Yeah, late twenties are some challenging years!

Drew, John, Julia and I are so thankful for all of your sweet prayers and support. This journey would’ve been much more tiresome and lonely without all your love and encouragement. We are trying to keep visitors to a minimum- Drew does not have much stamina and tires easily. Feel free to email me if you’d like to stop by or get an update


  1. So, I have only one question who did the lady think you were getting the parking sticker for? Was it Julia? Was it John? Hmmm Anyway it is good to hear about Drew's healing. Continued prayers are being sent from North Carolina:)

  2. Hi Drew (and all) - I was thinking of you this morning so thought I would check your blog. I trust you are recovering well back up in Chicago. I am taking time this morning to pray for all four of you.
