Hallelujah for the miracles of today:
– Max started out the day walking laps to avoid his blood thinner shot
– Max’s last oxygen issues were miraculously resolved after a good nose blow
– Every major body function working well!
– Decrease on all meds & Max is handling very well
– Eating & swallowing well with soft foods
– Time together with Max outside
– Feeling joy for the first time in weeks. I’ve felt grateful numerous times, but just today I felt joy again as Andy walked me out to the car and we reflected on the sweet relief that Max’s progress brings and just looking forward to being together as a family again just fills my heart to overflowing!
“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”
-Joseph Campbell
We are all surviving & the joy is burning out the pain!
Praying for: an appetite & calorie intake, strength to walk tall and straight & do physical therapy, help for Mom & Dad to do wound care on our own, and our family together with Max home soon!
– Nat
