Update: Laurie Roth

Just twenty-five days ago, I wondered if my wife would live or die. Obviously, she lived. I just wanted to show you all exactly how beautiful your answered prayers look. We have a long way to go, but we are on the right track. Someday, Laurie is going to kill me for sending this picture to all of you. However, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.

As you can see, my bride looks great! (Rich included a photo of Laurie.) The feeding tube was removed and she immediately felt better. She was able to walk up and down the hall with no assistance and I was able to walk arm in arm with her. She practiced getting into and out of a car for the first time since the accident. We both can't wait until she gets in the car which will bring her home. There is a meeting scheduled for Wednesday afternoon which will create a tentative date for her discharge from St. Lukes.
