Reflecting on an Anniversary I Would Rather Ignore. It has been 5 years. So much is the same, yet so much has changed.
But, on this day,
Our Lives Changed Forever
Anniversary I Would Rather Ignore.
What began as a somewhat normal day.
Get up at 8:15 am
G got H up and ready to eat breakfast.
He ate normally.
Noticed he was a bit needy.
He wanted to be in my lap, at all times.
He was a bit whiny.
The boys saved me and took him to their room to play with Legos.
That lasted for 10 minutes.
I kept hearing N say “buddy, you are not in trouble…why are you shaking and screaming?”
I called him back into the dining room.
He still was throwing a fit.
I had him sit on the step to calm down.
As he shook, he cried.
I told him to stop shaking and he could get up.
He ate lunch.
N put him down for a nap at 12:30
We were all relieved because we would have no screaming time.
At 4:15, we got him up.
He was carried downstairs (as normal) and put in my lap.
We snuggled until he woke up.
I told him he needed to sit on the potty (5 steps away).
I put him on the floor.
I thought his legs were asleep, so I picked him up and rubbed his legs.
After about 5 minutes, I put him back down to go to the potty.
He fell again.
Concern began to enter my throat from the depths of my toes.
I had N go across the room (about 10 steps away) and I had H walk to him.
He wobbled like he was drunk, cried, shook, and fell.
A Year Ago Today
That’s when I knew……
Our lives would be forever changed.
Please pray for a miracle.
Romans 4:18a “Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing….”
Romans 4:20-21 “Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
2 Years Ago Today
He walks, unassisted.
We had our wheelchair ramp removed.
He can ride a tricycle.
Most of the time, he can feed himself.
He struggles with this speech.
Also, with behavior.
Wobbly legs, but better.
Shaky arms/hands are still troublesome.
The Meds are working.
God is good.
We have come a long way, but there is still a long way to go.
