Quick Praise Report!!

Thank you so much for all of your prayers, everyone! My Dad is doing much, much better now. The doctors thought that it would take this plasmapheresis treatment and the rehab combined to get him well again... but it looks like God might have other plans! He woke up Friday morning without any pain, laughing, smiling, and talking much better. The doctors had started Dad on antibiotics for the staph infection they found in his blood, and we think that really helped him a lot.

Anyway, my sisters and I got to spend all day yesterday with our Mom. She came home to spend some time with us while my grandparents stayed with Dad. We had a really great day together! Later Mom drove us all up to the hospital to visit Daddy for a little bit and then our grandparents brought us back home. We got to see him walk to the bathroom in his hospital room... with little to no assistance!! We were SO excited!! Daddy was really glad to see us, too. He was giggling and smiling really big at us all! Yay!! :)

Anyway... at this rate he won't even need to go to rehab! One of his doctors said he would definitely need the rehab because his symptoms had gotten so severe... but isn't it amazing when God shows us differently?!? His ways are so much higher than our ways!

Praise God! Praise God!

I was wondering why you don't post pictures of you and your family's faces. No offense here I have been just wondering and this latest picture made me ask.

It is a very nice picture. It reminds me of these verses:

Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy 128:3

My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. prov.1: 8&9

Thanks Grace! Those are some really nice verses! I'll head over to your blog and answer your question. :)
