|No working elevator in this apartment building|
This time we discovered the elevator was out on Monday after we called the Healing Rooms and realized they were open. We gleefully got bundled up in our winter attire - even the below-zero temperature was not going to stop us.
We ran into a major disappointment though when we got to the elevator and realized it wasn't working. We went back to our apartment and figured out what to do next. We thought about having the Healing Rooms come to us because Faith really wanted prayer but that wasn't going to cut it for Faith. She said that would be "boring."
Rob got her chair downstairs then carried Faith down and put her in it. Getting her and her chair downstairs is the relatively easy part, it's more of a challenge getting everything back up. We had a fun time at the Healing Rooms and were very blessed by their prayers and scriptures they shared with us. We were glad we made the effort to go. Upon getting back home, we decided to leave Faith's chair in the van and just bring her up.

The next day, we got Faith downstairs then she and her dad took me to work and they went to the clinic to get her mic-key button changed. (It had come out at school last week, thankfully her school has a full-time nurse who put it right back in).
On Wednesday, we made it to school even though we were a little late. After school, the elevator still wasn't working (the building managers had assured us it would be fixed Wednesday sometime). This morning Faith woke up with a low-grade fever and because of that combined with the freezing cold weather and no working elevator, we decided to just keep Faith home. When I got home from work, I was very dismayed to find it had still not been fixed.
This really, really makes me want to live on the first floor or a different building altogether! We are really hoping and praying that when they do finally get the elevator going again it will be fixed for good this time! And I'll remember to never take a working elevator for granted!
