David's Sunday and Contact Info

We have David all settled in now at English Oaks. It is good to see him in his own clothes rather than a hospital gown. That in itself seems to make a world of difference. It was also a glorious experience for him to get to be outside as he exited the hospital and then as he entered English Oaks. He is such an outside person. If he is inside at home too long he has to open all the windows, or he has to get outside and walk or run, so for him to have been inside for 10 days straight was a marathon in and of itself!!

Our focus today was getting him settled in, so we didn't get a chance to check it all out, but I hear there is a courtyard, so I'm sure he'll be able to get outside a bit while there. That will be great. From what I understand he will be getting 2 hours of therapy 2 to 3 times a day - sounds pretty grueling, but he is ready to work and very motivated. He is also very disciplined, so I eagerly look forward to seeing his day-to-day progress.

If you are in the area and would like to visit, his room is 225. His phone number, directly to him, is (209) 573-7576. He also has a "prayer pager" that we were just given today through our church. If you are praying for him and would like him to know he has been prayed for, you can dial 654-8500. Then, after the beeps, enter the number 419, and then hang up. He will get the page and then see the number 419, which is a reminder of Philippians 4:19
"And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus."

David, Heidi, and boys:

Greetings from the SoCal Meyers! We are thinking of all of you and keeping you in our prayers. Heidi, we appreciate - as do many others, I'm sure - your updates, and we are glad to hear that the medical care is excellent and that David has been transferred to a good rehab facility.

You should know that our church choir is praying for you, as are faculty members at the Valley Christian schools.

God bless!

Uncle Marv and Aunt Bonnie

Dave & Heidi,
Thanks for keeping us informed so faithfully. You help us pray not only with requests for your situation, but with thanksgiving too. We hope this is another good week of progress, Dave, and that you'll be able to get some good sleep, Heidi. Give our love to Anthony, Jacob and Caleb (and Mom too).
Jeff and Vicki

Wow, It's still unreal. It's quite selfish how we feel about Dave. He gives so much to us. We are awaiting his full and complete recovery. If we can be of use with rides, etc. do not hesitate to call. Amy for all

Hi guys!
The prayer pager is a neat idea, though I'm sure you're being prayed for much more than you're being paged! How's progress on the movement? Anything in the foot yet? Brookside church is praying for you all, including you, mom! They/we miss you over here! Love to you all!
