Jonathan had a good day today. In PT he walked up and down the stairs. Walking down today was a first and he did great. In OT Jonathan sat on the mat and knocked down some bowling pins by throwing a ball several different ways. He also had "Snack Attack" today where he made pudding. He also made some for Dad who got to eat it later. After that he had a new class where he exercises his legs. This was difficult for him and although he cried through it, he tried to do everything he was asked to do. After a very busy day we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and taking walks. Jonathan still talks a lot about going home and doesn't understand why he cannot. We are praying that God's will is done in this situation and are asking for peace until His will is revealed. Along that lines, tomorrow should be a interesting day. We have our cares conference and I am sure that the main topic of conversation will be his discharge date. We are going to ask that he go home on Friday (hey it never hurts to ask :) ). The weekends are really long and pretty much a waste. They are better with the outings but if we go out on Saturday, we spend all of Sunday trying to divert his attention away from why he cannot go home, it is all we can do to keep him from crying about it. Kristi and I have taken up duty spending the night for these last few days. All in all we cannot complain and we thank God for His provision in our lives.
Pray for our meeting tomorrow that we will be receptive to whatever is best for Jonathan. Pray for strength and endurance in these final days at the hospital. Pray as we move into the next phase of Jonathan's recovery, Outpatient therapy. Pray that God would get all the glory for what He has done and what He is going to do.
