It has been one week since the Lord brought us home and we are still in awe of this awesome blessing. Jonathan has done incredibly well. He seems to be very content being at home, but always enjoys getting to go somewhere. Our church is in the midst of a Team Impact Crusade and we had the opportunity to attend the service on Wednesday evening. Jonathan enjoyed watching Team Impact as well as all the hugs and visits from people who have missed him and have been praying for him. Other than going to church Wed. evening, we stayed home and really worked on the potty training on Wed. and Thurs. In order for him to be able to do the aquatics therapy, he has to be completely potty trained, so we worked very hard on that while we were at home. Jonathan has done a fabulous job! On Thursday, he kept the same clothes on all day long and never had an accident! We are so proud of him. He thoroughly enjoyed his aquatics therapy yesterday. He did a lot of exercising in the pool for about 45 minutes. I think this is going to be very good for him. He is doing more and more things at home. Yesterday, he enjoyed spending some time playing video games with his sisters. Today he is playing on the computer. He loves to take walks and is still eating very well. Just so we don't bore you with all the little things that Jonathan is doing every day, our plan is to update the website on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday nights. We will however, write anytime there is something significant we want you to know or pray about.
Your continued prayers are very important to us. Please continue to stay in touch through the website so that we can let you know how he is doing and let you know what our prayer needs are. God has been so good and each time we look at him, we realize the incredible miracle that Jonathan is. There is healing that has yet to be revealed, and we continue to pray and anticipate the manifestation of that healing. Please pray that Jonathan will grow stronger and stronger each day. Pray for increased strength and mobility in his legs. Pray that he will respond well to his therapy. Pray for his mental healing and that God will completely heal his brain, vision and diabetes. Pray for Jonathan as he slowly reintegrates himself back into the activities that he has been part of. We look forward to what God is going to do in Jonathan's life and in the life of our family. Thank you for being part of this incredible work of God.
