Yesterday (Tuesday) morning update on Marc

The beautiful roses from the Sams....


This is the update Marc's dad wrote yesterday morning...thanks so much, Dad.


Celaya, Mexico. Again, many thanks for the prayers and concern of our Ropeholder family. This is Tuesday morning, Janet and I are in the hospitalroom with Marc and Melodie. Marc had a very good night of rest (and Melodierested well too), and this morning has shown the most improvement yet in hisrecovery. The ophthamologist was in last night and thinks that Marc's eyewill make a complete recovery. Though it is still swollen in the area ofthe eye, yet the bruising is receding, and the eye itself looks better. This morning, Marc (with aid of the nurse and Melodie) walked to the bathroom, was able to shower and wash his hair. Then he was able to seewell enough to walk across the room (and was walking better too) and sit down in a chair. The nurse re-dressed the suture line across the top of his head (Janet says the suture line is beautifully done [if such a thing can be"beautiful"]), cleaned out the actual wound area where the rock/piece ofconcrete had smashed into his forehead, and rebandaged that area and his nose that had been shattered. Right now he is eating almost normally though he says it hurts to swallow. Altogether, and thus far, this day has been very encouraging to all of us. As Melodie has mentioned, "The prayers of God's people are making adifference in my husband's life." From all of us - thanks for your prayer,and we earnestly request that you continue until God brings us the whole way through this present circumstance.

This is the piece of road asphalt/concrete that almost took my husband's life.

God is so good.
