In the midst of all those distressing updates about friends with serious health problems, we do have some encouraging news to share about another friend for whom we've been praying. For the past three months, we've been reporting on ApX fan Bill Turner, who was put on a ventilator for COVID on September 11. His wife, Lynn, told us the following on Wednesday:
"Monday's visit with Bill was even more encouraging. When I got there, the nurses had him sitting up in a chair, looking out the window. and he had improved cognitively. He was not only answering questions; he was also telling me things. By mouthing words. He can't talk yet, as he still has the trach.
"It may have taken him a long time to wake up, but in every visit since he has woken up, he has made progress by what seems like leaps and bounds to me. I am so thankful to the Lord for all the miracles He is providing. He still has a long road to recovery, but I am hopeful. Thank you once again for the prayer support."
On Friday night, she had even more good news:
"I went to see Bill again yesterday, and he is mouthing lots of words to me now. I can't keep up! I wish I was better at reading lips LOL. Anyway, he was wiggling his toes while I was there, so that's an improvement, and about an hour after I left, I was called by the doctor and told Bill was being transferred to a closer hospital that night.
"So I am praising the Lord for him being closer to me now. Hopefully, that will help with me getting there to visit. Because I don't drive, I have been relying on friends to help me get there. I was able to go once a week when he was an hour away and then twice a week when he was 45 minutes away, and now he's about 25 mins away."
Praise the Lord!
