First, thanks to all of you who have been praying for Marianne, our parish's secretary and chief organist - please don't stop!
Second, Marianne is doing better and looks MUCH better. She's in the step-down unit from ICU. Her color is much better, and the ventilator is gone. She's just beginning to be able to talk, but it still takes a lot of effort. Coughing still looks very painful for her. No food yet, but she says she hasn't really wanted it up till now.
"O Lord, look down from heaven: behold, visit, and relieve Your servant, Marianne, for whom we pray..."
