Greetings once again from Fr. Bill!
While I am planning to return to Chamberlain later today or tomorrow morning, Fr. Steve’s parents will remain with him until Tuesday or so. He has more family arriving tomorrow to spend the weekend with him. One of us from his SCJ family will return on Tuesday.
Fr. Steve continues to recover from his surgery with the usual and expected side effects. He was up a few times yesterday. Today, he is taking things easier. His doctors want him to have more rest before doing too much walking.
Pre-op, Fr. Steve hoped to be in the hospital 5-7 days, but the doctor told him yesterday it would be more like 7-10 days. We know how our plans change when we are in the hospital, etc!
At times, it is easy to forget Fr. Steve has had very major surgery and requires more recovery time. He is very willing to do whatever the doctors, nurses and others ask him to do.
All of us deeply appreciate your prayers and thoughts for his recovery. Please continue to pray for him, his parents and his care team during this special time of recovery.
Fr. Steve and I were with you – students and staff – in prayer during this morning’s graduation ceremonies!
Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, please remember all those who have, or currently are, serving our country.
