180







Today
was a
remarkable
day!

    













 
      Karen did a 180 from yesterday to today.  She weaned off of the IV pain pump, started eating real food, gained back a lot of strength, walked around her ward several times, the nausea dissipated… she looks and sounds great.  

     Sawyer is now completely untethered from monitors , catheters, and IV's.  All of his labs continue to look great.  His doctor said he is doing "better than expected". 

     We all came here together on Tuesday.  It appears we will all go home together tomorrow.  How cool is that?!?   I think a few people are praying [understated].

     Here is a video of Sawyer as he started walking today.

This is just absolutely wonderful news. So happy for all of you. How much faster will the healing happen in the privacy of your own home. Prayers will continue for healing, strength, comfort, rest, peace, and lots of love.
Oh my, how Awesome is it that you all get to go home together? Can you say, "Only a God" hand in that one. "Thank You God for all that you have bestowed this family with in just this one week alone. You have so graciously answered our prayers and blessed the faith this family has in You. Continue to be with this family with the days and months to come. We pray for continued healing and strength for both Karen and Sawyer. We pray for the peace this family will need to keep their priorities in place while these delicate days lie ahead. Thank You for Your awesome healing power for both these precious people. " ~ In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
