This has been an eventful week for us. First of all, Jonathan and Mom both got over their colds pretty well. Wednesday was kind of a puney day, but other than that, it was not too bad. We canceled Jonathan's aquatic therapy which had been moved to Wed. this week, because of his cold, so he only had two days of therapy this week. On Thursday, we were blessed to be able to spend the day together with some family and friends at Home School Day at Six Flags. This has become a tradition for our family and it is the only day during the year that we go to Six Flags. Dad, Mom and Jonathan didn't do a whole lot, but it was wonderful to be out of the hospital and be able to go together again this year. Jonathan rode some nice, calm simple rides, his favorite being the antique cars that he drove Mom and Dad around in. It was a very nice day for our family. Friday, we celebrated being home 4 entire weeks. God has been so good to us and we have seen significant improvement in Jonathan's miracle healing during these weeks. Saturday, we spent time with family celebrating Mother's Day with one of our Grandmas and we celebrated with the other Grandma today. This Mother's Day is especially meaningful to me. Just 4 months ago, I stood by Jonathan's bedside in the ICU and told the Lord that He could take Jonathan home with Him if that was His will. I cried out to God for Jonathan's life and healing, but I could not bear the thought of him living as I saw him at that time, which was as much hope as the doctors could give us. If that was what he was going to be, I begged God to take him home. Today, I am blessed to celebrate this Mother's Day with all three of my children very much alive, we are out of the hospital, and we continue to witness God's amazing, miraculous, healing power in Jonathan's life. I am, of all Mothers, most blessed.
Please continue to pray for Jonathan. Continue to pray for strength, stability and balance as he continues to try to walk on his own. Pray specifically for his right leg and foot. Pray that he will continue to try to walk on his own. Every day, he tries to do more walking on his own. Twice now he has gotten out of his bed and walked, holding on to the walls, to come find me in the morning. Continue to pray for his bladder control at night. I thought we had that under control, but apparently we don't, so please continue to pray for this. Please pray for the continued healing of his brain, vision and diabetes. Pray for his peace of mind. Pray for health and strength for all of us. God continues to do a might work in Jonathan's life and in our family. There is much left to do. Thank you for continuing to pray for us. We continue to need your faithful intercession. We love you all.
