Today was a usual low key Saturday for Jonathan. He spent most of the day with Dad and is also spending the night with Dad tonight. Jonathan had PT and OT today and did pretty well with both. He was able to lift his legs for the doctor and do whatever the doctor asked him to do with his left hand. These are things that Jonathan wasn't able to do for the doctor last weekend, so we have made significant progress this week. Jonathan asked a couple of times today when he was going to get to go home. While we talk about going home with him sometimes, this is the first time that he has asked that question on his own. The doctor told us that he wants to see him walking before we go home. They originally put us on a 6 week plan for Jonathan and that 6 week time frame ends March 16. We will have another Cares Conference this week to discuss this and find out what the future holds for us.
Only God knows the real plan for Jonathan. Pray that we will all trust God and His timing for Jonathan's release. Pray that God will allow Jonathan to walk soon. Pray for continued strength in his body to be able to accomplish this. Pray for healing in his brain, his vision and his diabetes. We want God's will to be done, but we are asking God to heal Jonathan and allow us to go home soon. The Scripture we have open in Jonathan's room at home and one of the Scriptures on the wall in his hospital room is Isaiah 58:8 "Then your light will break out like the dawn, And your recovery will speedily spring forth; And your righteousness will go before you; The glory of the LORD will be your rear guard." We are claiming this Scripture for Jonathan. Thank you for faithfully praying with us.
