A Back's Need and a Knee's Back (Mostly)

It's been too long since I posted an update on Mom's knee.  She has improved remarkably since my last update on March 3rd.  She has regained almost all abilities that were taken away by the knee injury.  She can (without assistance from Dad or myself) get in and out of bed, in and out of her recliner, and in and out of the shower.  Each of those were an exciting milestone.  And God's not done yet.

She got to go to the Good Friday evening service at our church, the first time she'd been to church since the knee injury.

Right now the main thing holding her back is her back.  For some reason, the pain level there has worsened even while the knee has improved.  It makes it difficult for her to stand or sit upright for any length of time without a lot of discomfort.

We are so grateful for your prayers and support.  Jesus has been very good to us.  Keep praying!
