Journal entry by Karen Pawlowski

Dear family and friends, drum roll please.........    Bill got the green light to come home on Friday.  He'll continue therapy at an outpatient facility closer to home.  Needless to say, he is ecstatic.  When he heard the news he almost cried.  

Bill's recovery is truly a miracle.  When he collapsed and went into cardiac arrest, a stranger automatically called 911, another gentleman applied CPR while a restaurant manager ran for an AED.  What i found out yesterday was that those two men who work at the Kitchen Kettle Village had just renewed their first aid and CPR certs.  So, it was fresh in their minds.  It seemed that God had positioned everyone that was needed at that very moment.  In fact the Gordonville ambulance that responded wasn't local, but for some unknown reason was in the area.  On top of all that, Lancaster General Hospital turned out to be part of Penn Medicine.  

I truly believe that God purposely places certain individuals in your life to support you when something like this happens.  In our case, we needed an army to get us through the past five weeks, and you were all up to the challenge.  We will never be able to express our gratitude for your support and we thank God every day for your love and friendship.
