Haley Chaney Update for 3-10-08

Haley Chaney's CarePage was updated early this afternoon. I'll add the update to the comments at the bottom of the original post about the accident. You can read more at those links, but here is a little bit right off:
She [Haley] continues to show progress, but it feels as if we are now chipping away at the obstacles. The movie Shawshank Redemption keeps coming to mind. I see images of Andy Dufresne escaping the cruel, 1947 state penitentiary tunneling through walls with a small pick hammer. It took him 19 years. He slowly chipped away at the cement one pocketful at a time…one day at a time. He used a wall poster in his cell to cover up his work. That’s the image that keeps coming into my mind when I look into Haley’s eyes. I see determination and often exhaustion. She’s trying to break through the walls that stand in the way of her “freedom.”

Continued prayers for the Chaneys and all of Northern Wells, are welcome and needed.
