We are continuing to enjoy our time at home. Jonathan is doing fabulous. He is sleeping well at night, his blood sugars are much better and he continues to eat well. We went back today for an evaluation with the new PT. She has big plans for Jonathan and she is preparing to take him to a new level of recovery. We are looking forward to seeing how God is going to use her to assist in His complete healing of Jonathan. Jonathan spent most of the day up and walking around. After therapy, we picked up Dad and went to Taco Bell for lunch (one of his favorite places). After that we went and enjoyed visiting the staff at the church office, which is something the kids love to do but have not had the opportunity to do in quite some time. We had a couple of visits from friends and family this afternoon and Jonathan always enjoys showing everyone how good he can walk with his walker. He kept asking today to ride his bike or his motor scooter or to ride his razor scooter. The longer we talked about why he couldn't do that right now, the more upset he got until he started to cry. After he calmed down, we got his razor scooter and brought it inside. With help from Mom and sisters, Jonathan was able to ride his scooter around the house a few times. He was pretty proud of that. We continue to work on the potty training and hope to get that under control so that he will be able to do the pool therapy on Thursdays.
It is such a blessing to be at home. We have nothing but praise to the Lord for the time we have spent at home these last few days. Continue to pray for healing of Jonathan's brain and for his peace of mind. There is still so much that he doesn't understand and cannot comprehend. Pray that we will be able to help him sort through the thoughts he is having and that no matter what he might think, to know that he is a very special boy and that God has a special plan for his life. Pray that he will be able to handle his new therapy without crying or agitation. Pray that we will have wisdom to know how to help him and to work with him to aid in the progress of his healing. Thank you so much for your continued prayers. They continue to carry us through each day.
