My dear Father in Heaven I praise you this morning, I praise you for the gift of life and for my precious son. Father you have shown us how much you really do love us through David and I am so grateful for your unfailing love, it means so much to me. You are the way, the truth, and the life and I am so glad to know and love you like I do. In your name Amen.
I just had to make a public prayer of thanks today so that all of you can pray my prayer with me. When we got here today the doctors told us that he was doing much better today, but I wasn't going to believe it until I saw it. And then I saw him, and he is doing soooo much better!! His right side is so much stronger, he was using his right arm to pull himself up and had good function in that side. His speech is MUCH better, he still has some facial paralysis and he does have some speech problems still, but it is almost 100% better then yesterday. His thoughts are coming quickly and he is forming words without any problem. He looks better overall, PRAISE GOD.
This whole experience has taught me so much about my son and myself, I know deep in my heart that the Lord is using this to teach me those things, that is just one of the many reasons. It has proven to me without a doubt that the Lord is there for us through all things, all of the time and he is in control- I AM NOT. For those of you who don't know me, I am the biggest control freak out there, and this experience has taught me if nothing else to give up that control and rely solely on the Lord. My faith and love for the Lord is so much stronger today then any other time in my life. My love for my boy has become stronger and the bond that he and I share now is so great. I fell to my knees when the surgeon told us that when Dave could speak again his first words were "How is my mom?" I was astonished that his love for me was so great and verbalized. The Lord is doing mighty things through this whole ordeal, and these that I have mentioned are just a few.
