My sister Kathy is planning on posting, but I can't help but share with you the great news of the day!!!! We are on the BIR list and will probably be moving to rehab next week, God willing. Also another major milestone was an MRI of the neck to check for stability. Stephen passed with flying colors and is cleared to be without the neck brace while he is in bed. As a precaution, he will need to keep it on for 3 more weeks while doing therapy. This was another very important step in moving to rehab. The pneumonia is officially gone and so we wait as he continues to get stronger and weans off the vent.
I am constantly reminded that God goes before us and although we think certain things should happen in a certain order, God has another plan. Although we wanted to go on to rehab as fast as possible, it strikes me that God thought Stephen needed to heal more so that his rehab will be the most efficient. I can't tell you how lifted up we feel by your prayers. "Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
P.S. watch for new pictures soon.......
