Florida was a whirlwind, in and out in less than 12 hours... traveling was very difficult, not just being away, but see all these families traveling together especially ones you can tell just had a Disney experience. I know there will be a day when our family will be able travel together and create lifelong memories outside of hospital.
I'm not going to go into any great details right now, but please be praying for me as I have a really big decision to make. At this point I have to make the best decision for our family, I'm looking at what's best for Adam, but also what's best for us a family and for us to not have to keep moving from facility to facility.
This morning in Florida it was so refreshing to feel the warm sunshine on my skin. I couldn't help but to sit outside and have my morning cup of coffee under the warm sunshine. This was truly God's gift to me today. My soul rejoices in the warm sun. As I was sitting there, I pondered how truly thankful and grateful I am for this journey. I don't expect all of you to understand, but I am so grateful for all that we have endured, God has really captured my heart and is teaching me what it means to give thanks in all circumstances. To be content in all that life hands us. While I would never wish this on anyone, and I certainly wouldn't want to go through this again or even start over for that matter, there has been so much good and so much learned, that it makes me excited to see all that God will continue to do through this. It's keeping my eyes focused on God that makes getting out of bed each day even possible. He truly sustains all 3 of us each and every day... just another reason to be so thankful. 1 Chronicles 29:13 Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
Please continue to pray for Adam as he is battling this cold. He's doing better today than yesterday, but still not himself. Like I mentioned last night, a cold really takes him out, it effects his whole body, and he already tires easily, but with a cold he's just plain tuckered out. Please pray that his body will heal quickly and pray that there will be no set backs. Please pray for Mackenzie as she will be traveling home in the morning and having to adjust to life back in a hospital... I am so happy she was able to step away for a week and be a kid, thank you to all you made that possible and special for her. Pray for her as she adjusts back into her last month of school here in MA. For those of you who are worried about her, know that God has prepared her for this journey just as much as He has me... He chose our family, prepared our family and has equipped our family. I know this has not been easy on her, but let me tell you, she is an amazing kid and God will use her in a mighty way as well.
Pray also for Adam to continue to make gains moment by moment and for his FULL recovery, better than old, better than new. Pray for daily gains that continue to baffle the scientific minds. Pray for Adam's voice to grow stronger and louder when he's speaking, pray for the doctors, nurses, therapists, and all staff that care for him, pray God's hedge of protection around Adam's immune system, pray for Adam to continue to gain strength to walk on his own, pray for him to know when he needs to use the restroom, pray for his sight (especially on the right side), pray continually for his ability to continue to process information and act upon it. And selfishly, please pray for my back. Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for our family. We are so blessed and feel honored to have so many of you so faithfully lifting us in prayer.
