WWednesday March 25, 2009

Lisa had a quiet day today, not much to report. No tests today, however she did have Physical Therapy , Speech Therapy (swallowing) and was able to sit in the cardiac chair for an hour. She is sleeping better at night and breathing well.

Keep up the prayers and positive thoughts and we will continue sharing your comments with her. She loves "mail call" every day when we read your cards and comments to her.

Thank you.

Jim and the kids


  1. Hi Lisa, we really miss you at school... and know how hard it must be to keep you away...You do know we're all holding down the fort and things are running fine.. you be good and listen to the drs. and therapists and you'll get stronger every day.. I promise you when you come back you can do 1 more stull evaluation on me.. (I know that's what sent you to the hospital to begin with).. ha ha!!! Remember Lakewood rules and so does Carver!! Love, Lynda

  2. Slow and steady wins the race! Keep going Lisa! Team Lisa is cheering you on. Listen to the docs and therapists....they will have you running back to Carver before you know it! We miss you. Be good, follow the doc's orders and keep up the good work!

  4. Dear Lisa and Jim, Josh and Melissa,
    I know it has been a really long time since I have written, but please know you have been in my thought EVERY day. Lisa, you have had the same swallowing tests as Ray after his surgery. He was told that the healing is a slow process. It is getting better, but he is learning to be patient. You are making great progress, Keep up the fight. Love you and MISS you so much. Cheryl Dennison

  5. I read these posts. I look forward to them. I think of you all the time Lisa and know you are on a slow but steady path to wellness. We are all pulling for you. Your presence, your warm smile and gentle guidance is missed greatly but Carver awaits your return. Just take your time and know we are thinking of you and sending our best thoughts.

  6. Dear Lisa,
    You are such an inspiration to me and everyone around you. I hope today brings new progress and good things all around you.
    Running late for work - Love you, Jackie

  7. Hi Lisa and Family,
    I'm excited that things are still moving forward and just know that these bumps in the road are just a part of your recovery and the muscles getting stronger! You have shown your strength of character many times already and this is just one more way to show your ability to adjust and overcome! You are such an inspiration to me and when I am missing you or feeling sorry for myself, I just think about you and your wonderful family and I can't help but feel uplifted, energized and ready to conquer my problems. Thank you all again for allowing us to share this journey with you and be part of the most winning team....TEAM LISA!
    Love and Prayers,
    Nurse Judy

  8. Hi lisa we are all pleased by your good news mam and dad send their love and wishes glad to hear you are getting your hand writing back I could do with a good letter to update us on all the american news. Glad you liked the calendar and toy boy. keep up the good work the richards and Browning Families xxxxx

  9. Hi Lisa, don't we have both speech and physical therapy at Carver? Maybe you can come get it from us and do some work at the same time. Just kidding!!!! Take your time and get well slowly so you can stay well and feel good. You are greatly missed, but everyone wants you to be 100%. I posted a quote before that illness arrives on horseback but departs on foot, so remember it's going to be awhile until you can do everything you want.
    Thanks for the updates Stephensons.
    Love, Tracy Hall
