Update on Cliff and Jenna

For those of you who know one of my best friends Jenna and her awesome husband Cliff Holm and have an interest in how things are progressing I thought I would post this update that I was emailed this morning by Jenna's mother.

This has been a week of ups and downs - Cliff's surgery went well - hisgrafts are healing. Cliff was moved to a room with a door rather than acurtain, he began eating solid food, and he was able to go on somewheelchair rides around the hospital. However, Cliff's head injury is stillserious - he is back with a catheter and a feeding tube for the time being.We have been told that he has taken 2 steps forward and 3 steps back -which we are also told is typical with a head injury as serious as his.
Those caring for Cliff, have requested no visitors for the time being. Heneeds stimulating conversation, but he gets very disoriented and confusedeasily. His heart rate stabilizes when he hears Jenna's voice - how sweet!
In the meantime, Cliff and Jenna's ward will be holding a fast on Monday,May 19, if you would like to participate - and we beg of you to keep bothCliff and Jenna in your prayers. We're still holding out hope that Cliffcan be home by Memorial Day.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
