we're now in a room with one other patient, but still have a window!)
Just as important as sharing with you the prayer requests, how much more fun it is to tell you answers to prayers!
Today was really such a good day. Nate's sleep was pretty good, but he woke up a happy boy. He had 4 spoonfuls of Rice Krispies. He was happy all morning (other than the obvious, when pressures were being taken or medicine given, of course). We had a good morning looking out our WINDOW! Yes, it's amazing what a window by your bed can do. Especially when the street is super busy! We also went for a little stroll down the halls.
Initially at lunch he completely turned his head, numerous times, at the grilled chicken burger and other things I offered. Then about 5 minutes later I offered just the chicken in pieces----and he ate 5!!! That was enough to thrill me! Everything else he shook his head at, but I was just so glad to the those morsels of protein in!
I have such a different feel today. Today I feel like we can do this...we will get through this....and things will get better! I guess that's what happens when you have an army of people praying for you!
They're changing up his meds just slightly, and the plan for tomorrow is to do an echo. I am praying that there will be obvious improvement and that we will get a better indication of how things are going and how much longer we'll be staying!!
Here's my prayer:
"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul."
And to the Banmans...thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful flowers! What a suprise! For me, they are a reminder of new life, beauty and the promise of spring - and they bring an even bigger smile to my face!
Wishing Michele and Katelyn and the whole group from church leaving for their mission trip to Mexico a safe journey and an experience that will change not only the people you touch, but yourselves as well! I'll be checking your blog!
