Although not much new happened today, we had a good day anyway. Therapy went pretty well all day. Jonathan stood up on the standing frame and did well. He did very well sitting up, being on his hands and knees and exercising his arms during OT. He did well during speech and with the neuropsycologist as well. One of his therapist introduced him to a device called a monocle (spelling?) which is kind of like binoculars for one eye. He did pretty well with it. She will be working with Jonathan to find things that will help him see better. Jonathan is doing very well with his new wheelchair. He does not use his left hand as well as his right hand, but he is trying to move it on his own. Jonathan weighed in today at 56 pounds! The doctors are still working on finding that perfect dose of insulin for him, but he is doing fine.
Please continue to pray for complete healing. Pray for healing of his brain, his vision and his diabetes. Pray that Jonathan will walk soon. Pray for him during his therapy times. Pray for peace and contentment until God allows us to go home. Please pray for us. We are so tired and 5 more weeks seems like an eternity. Pray that we will remember what God has done and meditate on His faithfulness. The LORD's loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
