Updated Prayer Requests

Today has been another phenomenal day!   I am so proud of Adam... his day started with his determination of getting things done the way he wanted them.  In occupational therapy Adam worked with Eri on washing himself up.  She said it surprised her how much he does on his own between washing himself and helping dress himself.  He really is doing such a great job!  In speech today Brooke worked with Adam on speaking louder than a whisper by using a voice amplifier.  He does so well communicating, but he needs to realize that he has a voice so he doesn't need to whisper.  He tries so hard, but every time he speaks it's in a whisper.

The best part of Adam's day in therapy came while he was in physical therapy.  I can't get over how strong my man is!  He is unbelievable... he walked again today with the walker about 200 feet and he was cruising down the hall.  Go ADAM, you're amazing!

Adam had such a great day, his eyes were so bright and he was doing so well engaging and participating in his environment around him.  He is so aware, so alert of what is going on.

Tonight I want to ask for continued prayers, below is a list of our prayer requests...

  1. Adam's Full Rebuilding, FULL recovery
  2. Adam's speech and voice
  3. Continued strength and endurance
  4. Pray for Adam's therapists for wisdom and guidance as they work with Adam, specifically pray for Adam's speech therapist Brooke, she has a difficult time finding what works for Adam and seems to be relying more on what's working for her rather than Adam.
  5. Pray for Adam's ankles to return to a more normal posture through his casts to make walking easier for him
  6. Pray that Adam will be able to communicate when he needs to use the restroom
  7. Pray for the staff that works with Adam, specifically for his doctors and Adam's team
  8. Pray for Adam's cognitive ability
  9. Pray for his memory, some days Adam remembers well, and other days he's out of it
  10. Continue to pray for us as Adam, Mackenzie, and I continue to trust in the Lord with all our hearts, and to lean not on our own understanding, but in all our ways acknowledge Him.
Mark 11:24  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Thank you for praying for my man and for walking this journey with us.  Thank you that I can post these requests and I know you all are praying through them.  You all are amazing!  I can't thank you enough for all that you all have done for us!

Amy, It's amazing how much Adam has progressed since we first met December 29, 2011, it is truly miraculous. Although not spoken, we knew the time would come when our journeys of therapy would bring us to different destinations but it is hard to believe the time is here. Our hearts, faith, and prayers will never be distanced as we bring our wonderful husband and son to their roads to recovery. You are truly a remarkable woman, wife, and mother. Thank you for all the strength and support you have given my family, including Dan, and myself. You are the warrior! Love, Barbara
