A while ago I asked you to pray for Joanne Heim, Toben’s wife. As a 38-year old woman, she had a catastrophic stroke and was in a medically-induced coma.
Fast forward 6 weeks (literally, SIX WEEKS) and Joanne is healing rapidly and well! She is in a long-term care facility, has no more tracheotomy, is blogging again (with some translation from her husband, as necessary), and is amazing doctors and staff all around. Toben credits God and all those who have been praying for her for the amazingly quick turnaround – there were dark days when they weren’t sure she would pull through. Her rehab is going well and she’s still quick in her mind, even if the words don’t come as easily as she’d like right now.
