Saturday evening

Hi, Its Melissa.

I just wanted to tell everyone that before I left Saturday evening and I was saying my goodnights to Dave, I was holding his left hand and telling him how proud I was of him/how strong of a man he is/how loved he is..... All of a sudden he curled his fingers around my hand and lifted it up off the bed ever so slightly, not only once but twice (boy, did it make me squeal with joy!!!!) I truly believe he heard me talking to him and I left the hospital last night with peace in my heart.
Thank you for your continued prayers of recovery, support and love....we're passing it on onto Dave!


  1. Hi Wisniewski Family,

    Wanted to let you know that I have added David and your family to our prayer chain at our church in Richmond Iowa----Holy Trinity Parish. I have also contacted a friend from Payton/Churdan who knows your family and told him to get the prayers going for your family.

    I had my computer turned off since I have been painting the room where I keep it. I was thrilled to read the progress and know that faith can move mountains.

  3. Melissa and Wisniewski Family,
    I am a Navy OR nurse but am originally from Lawton, Iowa, about 10 miles from Moville.
