Our days can tend to blur together. The dailiness of stroke recovery can at times cause us to forget to STOP and REMEMBER what the Lord has done! And although we have seen the Lord work for us in so many ways this past year, today we want to intentionally stop and thank the Lord for two specific miracles. It was one year ago today that my Dad drove himself to the hospital with chest pain and while there suffered a heart attack. The doctors let us know how blessed we were for how that day unfolded and how easily we could have had a much different outcome. So today we want to stop and thank Jesus for His mercy in sparing my Dad’s life one year ago!
Our second miracle of the day is that while we have seen some reflexes and felt some of Mom’s muscles trying to respond we have seen little to no significant response in her left arm (Wilson). Today after the therapist had used the E-stim (electrical stimulation) machine on her left arm we saw movement for the first time! It has been five months since we have seen any real response in her arm so we are celebrating this victory.
I don’t have any answers as to why the Lord has been so good to us in sparing both my Mom and Dad’s life in the last year. All I know to do is to say thank you! So today we praise the Lord for His mercies which are new every morning. We praise Him for His faithfulness through a very difficult year. We praise Him for the opportunity to share with others about His goodness even in the midst of suffering.
For all of you who have prayed faithfully for Wilson here is a short video from this morning. Thank you for your prayers! Please don’t stop!
