Happy Easter!

As you may know, I have gone home! It's a great blessing to be with my family and in my own bed!!

Thank you again for all your love and support. I am sure I would never have regained the bit of strength I have had it not been for the prayers, good thoughts and love of each of you. I am more grateful than you can imagine!

It is going to be a long haul to health. My injured brain tires easily, and my stamina is short lived. I am trying hard to follow doctor's orders and be patient with myself! I am grateful for happy hours and my wonderful family.

On this Easter day, I am filled with the joy and hope of rebirth and new beginnings, and wish you all the best.

Love, Pam

Happy Easter to you, too, Pam! Yesterday the weather was so beautiful and I thought about you, glad that your first weekend home would be nice, hoping that you might have a chance to enjoy the sunshine a little, and knowing that it would at least put a smile on your face when you looked outside. Even though you don't have the stamina you would like right now, I'm sure that while you are taking life at a slower pace than usual, you will notice so many things that you never have before. It always amazes me how many different perspectives life can have! Continue to get better -- we're thinking about you! Love, Debora

Pam,

You don't know me, but I'm a choral director at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. My wife helped you out in the first moments after the accident. We've been following your wonderful progress through the blog and I'm very happy to hear about your recent successes and incredible recovery. Our prayers are with you.

Easter blessings to you and your family.

Happy Easter to you, too! Its wonderful to hear the spring in your voice and know that you are relaxed and at peace in your own home (hospital food isn't the best, is it?) I meant to tell you long ago that when I first heard of your accident, I called our Unity Church headquarters, which is home to Silent Unity, a 24-hour prayer vigil. Its a wonderful program staffed entirely by volunteers, but what they do is take down your prayer request and they hold it in prayer for 24 hour hours a day for 30 days...and yes, an actual PERSON prays over your prayer request for that long! (Okay, so they take shifts, but still...) I just knew that with constant prayer from Silent Unity and from all your friends and family you were going to come out just fine...all things are possible with God, right? RIGHT! And while I am amazed and elated at your remarkable progress...I have to say that I'm not completely surprised! Welcome to your resurrection and CELEBRATE!

We love you and miss you greatly!
Love,
Angie Antkowiak

Pam,
I am so excited to read that you are home. Life is so much better in your own bed and in your own surroundings. Just take it slow and let everyone wait on you, you so much deserve it.(plus it is kind of nice too) I do want you to know that your friends at Andrew Price are praying for you too. We all love you and wish you a speedy recovery. Please let us know is we can do anything for you.

Lots of love,

Hi Pam!
It is so wonderful to hear you are home! I know it must be scary, and i hope your bedroom is on the first floor! I love reading about your progress and I pray for you everyday. I'm so pleased you are driving fast on the road to recovery. Everyone at choir misses you dearly! Don't worry about those doctor's appointments and definitely bring a portable dvd player or something because doctors take FOREVER, especially here at vanderbilt! I would suggest having your daughter go at the appointment time, and you going much later, when the doctor might actually see you! Take care and Good Luck
Love,
Kelly Finan
