Happy Birthday Steve!!

Today is Steve's 55th birthday.  I guess I shouldn't be revealing his age, but oh well.  I have attached a photo of him blowing out the candles at his 53rd birthday. Today is also the first day the girls will see their Dad.  Yesterday, they each made him a Build A Bear that represents their different personalities.  Each bear also has a recording in their voice with a message to Steve.  It is heart rendering.  Each day he looks more like himself.  He no longer needs many of the tubes and machines that have been with him.  Without all of his previous encumberments, I can easily kiss him on the cheek.  I believe he knows I am there.  Please keep praying.  It is helping.
