Saturday February 21, 2009

Mom had another quiet day today. Moms white blood cell count continued to improve today. This evening they are moving her to an acute care facility so that they can continue to wean her off of the ventilator.

So, Dad, Melissa, and I (Josh), will be moving with mom to her new facility. We will once again set up our posts, just with a different view.

We all are very thankful for your continued prayers and support!


  1. So glad to hear that positive progress is still being made. Thank God for every step in the right direction. Hang in there Stephenson Family. You're doing so well! Please send my love to Lisa. Thanks for the updates, it makes it easier to wait for Lisa to get better.
    Continued prayers and love,

  2. Lisa,
    I hope your move goes well, and that you receive the same excellent care that you have received at Little Company of Mary. The devotion of your dear family continues to inspire me, you have not been alone for one minute of this journey. Then you have Team Lisa support as well--you are a woman who is rich with things that are more treasured than anything money could buy! Know that I am with you every step of the way.
    Love you lots,
    P.S. Carol said to let you know that you are on the prayer list at her church as well!

  3. So glad to hear about the latest and greatest news you have given us! Team Lisa is behind you all the way sending prayers and good thoughts daily... Keep fighting! We miss you Lisa and know you are on the road to recovery.

    You are on everyones minds and in everyones thoughts all the time. We are fighting with you all the way!

    Thank you again for the daily posts.
