BUSY, BUSY BUSY!

Witt has been very busy!!! He spent 11 days at Warrenton
for the Zapp Hall Antique Show! This was Witt's second show
in a row to share with us and it was wonderful. He was not
feeling great at last fall's show and even had to be taken
into Houston to see the pediatrician. This show was uneventful
as far as Witt was concerned but incredibly busy especially at the cafe!!!

WITT SPENT MOST HIS TIME AT THE
TABLE WHERE MELANIE MAKES PLATES...
HOWEVER, IF HE NEEDED A NAP
HIS BED WAS READY THERE TOO!
JOE PETE WAS TRYING TO MAKE A DEAL
FOR THE "WITT PETE"!!
SOME GREAT TIMES WITH THE YOUNG COUSINS!
Witt wasn't back home long before he started on his new career
of finger painting. Look out Picasso!

I have a couple of prayer requests but first join me in thanking the Lord for Witt's health! Except for the couple of weeks this summer because of a stomach virus, it has been a year since Witt has been in the hospital!!!! We still run into friends from the hospital when Witt goes to his doctor's appointments but I have almost forgotten what it's like to sleep in a recliner! The first prayer request I have is for Witt to sleep through the night. I am writing this post at 3:00am because Witt has been waking up in the middle of the night for several nights in a row and its not an uncommon occurrence. I came over to sit with Witt so Melanie and Austan could get some sleep. In 8 days Melanie and Austan are taking their first vacation with Witt! We are going to Winter Park for Easter!! It's closing weekend at the ski area but a much warmer and healthier time than at Christmas. All of Witt's doctors have more than approved of the trip...they are pleased that Mel and Austan are taking him. This week I am having a special adapter put in my car so that we can travel with the humidifier attached to Witt's ventilator. Mel has worked out all the details of medication and supplies. The oxygen supply company even has an office in Denver and a top lung specialist that used to be at Texas Children's is now at a hospital in Denver! Please join me in praying for safety in travel. It should be a 2 day trip with an over night stay in Amarillo...hope the Gayle and Bobby Bed and Breakfast is open!!! The longest trip the Luphers have taken before this was a 5 hour trip so the timing will be up to Witt. He normally enjoys being in the car! We will return to Texas the week after Easter. I can't think of any better way to celebrate Christ and His complete victory over the things of this world than traveling with Witt, His miracle!!!
