Today is Susan's birthday--she finally matured to join me in the post-twenties. After getting more difficult information about Whitney than I care to recount, I took Susan to a nice Italian restaurant. The food was excellent, and plentiful. But better than that, the atmosphere was sufficiently private to allow Susan and I our first opportunity to begin discussing where we going--at this point, our conclusion is "we're not sure."
We would ask you, our friends and relatives, "the family" to continue to pray that Susan and I will be able to readily discern the Lord's will for us by Monday so that we can return to CHOP with confidence.
In other news, our warmest thanks to Melody for sending a care package complete with a birthday banner, candles, and matches. It brightened our day after our last consultation.
By the way, we highly recommend the restaurant if you're ever in Philadelphia.
