I’m so happy to see you breathing on your own. It is like the training of an opera singer. They strengthen their diaphram muscles so they can blast people out of their seats, and then hold a note forever. In the meantime, we have already taken several breaths, and we wonder when that singer is going to pass out. It never happens! Once I saw Robert Klein’s ex-wife, an opera singer and average size woman, put her arms around him on TV and lift him right off the floor. Now that is really a strong set of lungs. It was most impressive! Maybe you might start your operatic training soon. You never know. Stranger things have happened. Good luck on keeping your O2 Sat. rate up. JoAnn Wms.

I saw Kevin on Channel 3 news today. He looks awesome and it was so good to see him looking well and speaking. I will continue to keep him in my prayers. He is so blessed to have such a wonderful family.
