Monday Morning December 20th

Josh had a pretty calm night. The doctors are still
working to keep his system in equilibrium on an
regular basis. He has a small issue with his lungs,
which they are treating effectively. If Josh is in
your thoughts today, please think about deep, full
refreshing breaths for him, and lots of smiling.

The doctors will be meeting today to plot a course for the week.
Josh will be having a procedure today that will make him more
comfortable and make breathing easier. We will keep you updated.

We wanted to thank you all for following Josh's progress. Special
thanks to Dr. Bob for adjusting us down at the hotel yesterday,
and to Keith for innumerable acts of kindness.

Nurse Amy hands off to John this morning after a vigilant night of care.
The nurses caring for Josh are amazing.

Thank you for your love and support.

  2. Darling - we burned a little yule log with so many thoughts and wishes on it on Friday (I know it wasn't the right day, but it was in the fire before we knew it!). The kids loved doing it.
    So much love to all of you.

  3. Dear Mike, Darling and Rose,

    I continue to light a candle for Josh every day and am envisioning Josh's lungs settling into full, relaxed deep breaths that support his healing. I offer through the ethers my infinite faith in the healing intelligence of the body. My heart is with you all.

    love, sally clinton

  4. Thinking of you all. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Nothing is too big or too small.

  5. Deep and refreshing breaths we are sending Josh today in our thoughts. Our prayers are still with him. Ed and I each said the Rosary yesterday at Mass. Where we asked the Blessed Mary to watch over Josh and bring him to a full recovery. We continue to pray and hope for the restored health of Josh.
    With Warmest wishes,
    Ed and Jacquie Passifione

  6. We continue holding your whole family in our thoughts and prayers for healing and peace. Keep the faith. With God all things are possible.

  13. To Mike, Darling and Rose.

    Josh is someone I spent what I regard as the best years of my life with. While I struggle to make ends meet, I sometimes forget who I was in America while working this very challenging for little reward job, but my memories of the time we spent together have always filled me with an unstoppable will and vigor upon strength that allows me to burn bright enough to stay warm through the winter.

    For all warm memories Josh has given me over the years I send all of my feelings which could never live up to my gratitude right now and I am confident they will reach past the Atlantic ocean.

    Josh is one of the many important reasons I am strong today.

    James Marshall.

  14. Dear Darling, Mike and Rose ~

    Breathing in I feel Josh filled with light, love, warmth, oxygen, healing presence. Breathing out I feel him relax and send healing energy to flow through every cell of his being. We are praying for Josh and each of you.
