God's Help In Adam's Progress

I still am so amazed by how God is continuing to work through Adam's recovery.  I have some amazing results to share.  Many of you have asked for an update on Adam's recovery... and all I can think to say is WE SERVE ONE AMAZING GOD!!!  Adam continues to baffle the medical community by continuing to show documented progress weekly!  This is very significant, from what I am told most people will plateau in their recovery, and yet Adam continues to make significant progress... THANK YOU JESUS!!!

Adam continues to be treated in all disciplines of therapy and most of our week is spent in therapy or travelling to and from.  Adam recently started speech therapy in a new outpatient clinic and in order to assess where he is the speech therapist tested Adam in attention, memory, executive functions, language, and visuospatial skills... the results literally brought me to tears.  The test confirmed what I already knew, Adam's deficits are in memory and language.  He struggles the most with memory (please pray for his memory) and his language is improving almost daily.  The part that brought tears to my eyes... his executive functions, attention, and visuospatial skills tested with very mild struggles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

This is amazing!  Originally, Adam was diagnosed with the inability to ever be able to use his executive functioning.  Today while this speech therapist was giving me these results she explained that anyone with a brain injury that tested as well as Adam has an excellent chance at making an incredible recovery.  AMAZING... GOD IS SO FAITHFUL!  Jeremiah 32:17 'Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.

Adam continues to work hard EVERY day.  Some days are better than others but we all feel that way.  This morning I asked Adam what his favorite worship song is and he said "Helper" and I said I wasn't familiar with that song, I asked how it went and he started to sing "Jesus help me".  I loved his song, and it was truly from his heart and this is often his prayer in our morning devotions.  I ask you all to please join Adam in his prayer for Jesus to help him, for complete healing, FULL restoration.

There is more to update on, but we are in between appointments and this is all have time for today.

AMY!! Looking at that picture of Adam and his speech therapist, you would NEVER guess that Adam had a brain injury. As to his complete healing...was it Jim at that little resturant you went 12 miles to get to, WELL, there is Father's example of just how healed Adam is going to be (in Father's time, ALREADY is.) Thank you for taking time to post. I am blessed, Marion
