Quince is in a rehab facility. He can not move any part of his right side. I noticed this weekend that he is able to swallow now. He could not swallow when he was in the hospital and a feeding tube had to be inserted. I asked the nurse if they would be taking that out and she said not yet.

Quince was watching a game when I went to see him. I asked him who he wanted to win. He tries to talk but only small sounds come out. I am not sure how to describe it. He can hold up his fingers and he did do that a lot. He also cried. He is very sad and discouraged. Please keep praying.

I don't have any pictures of Quince to post and he was probably the only person in America who is not on facebook or myspace : ). I am going to take pictures of his children and his wife next weekend so then I will post them so you can see who you are praying for. Thank you so much for praying!

To end this on a happy note: My friend Katie who has been diligently praying for Quince, is having a giveaway this week. Go over and enter. She is giving away a beautiful bird.

Well, that does sound encouraging that he can swallow now. I know it will take a LONG time in rehab re-learning to do the simplest things. I am still praying for him in Oklahoma.

We will continue to pray for Quince, for improvement and for his mental outlook. I am glad that he has a good friend like you.

He will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I was hoping you had some better news today.
I have heard the recovery process for a stroke is very slow and long.

Thanks so much for the comment about my little darling. You must not have noticed the picture directly under the "baby" picture. That was taken just a couple months ago, and is appropriately titled "Stud Muffin."

I have no idea why I've never clicked over and checked out your blog. I've noticed your comments on so many of my favorite blogs. I'm so glad I did, because first of all, I finally was able to open up and enlarge the photo, which I now know is your son. I've always thought it was a picture of you (in a winter hat!) I'm going to have to come back later and read through your archives. In the meantime, I'll add your friend, Quince, to my prayers. Thanks for doing the same for my friends.

I'm so happy to hear Quince is showing some signs of matter how small. It breaks my heart that he's so sad. I continue to pray for his complete healing.
I have to go check out that give-away!

Would you send me an email line on Quince and the situation with him? If you have time...

I wanted to thank you for your sweet, sweet comments on my post about Courtney! I have been so blessed getting to know beautiful women like you!

I've got some catching up to do on your blog...If you can't send that email soon...I'll be learning more about Quince and his situation reading up on past posts, I'm sure.

Many blessings! May His grace abound!

Still praying! Here's a testimony my husband and I knew someone that fell from a fire escape. No one found him til the morning. He was unconcious and in a coma. We started praying for him as well as other believer's. The doctor's said there was no hope and if he ever came out of the coma he would never walk or be able to do anything for himself. My husband would go and visit him, reading him the word of God (didn't know if he was saved, could hear or what)...I am glad to say he is now walking, talking and is able to do things on his own...praise God! Also we anticipate him and his mother visiting our church. God is good! Be encouraged! Sorry this post is so long...God Bless!
