IIt was a VERY good day!

Ahhhhhhhhh! That's all I can say. Pain managed, a bath, hair washed, he shaved himself (nothing like making a mom nervous that putting a razor in a half way working arm/hand of her son!), put on shorts and a shirt, ate good, got the catheter out, drains out, AND

We got him up in a fancy chair and took him down the hallway for a brief few minutes.Check Spelling

This obviously exhausted him, but it was so good to get him out of that room - he loved it - and my mommy heart was thrilled!

G'pa and G'ma Korthuis, Uncle Marty, Aunt Debbie, Lisa and David, "uncle" Jeff and "aunt" Kathi - all came for visits. Nathan had some special friends visit too - it means a lot to him - he loves his friends!

Looks like we have another night in the private room - PTL - keep prayin' - it helps so much!!

We don't know about surgery tomorrow or not - I'll post as soon as I know!

I CANNOT believe how far God has brought our boy in 9 days - Miracle after miracle.

Psalm 103
"Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits-
{He} forgives, heals, redeems, and crowns you with love and compassion,
{He} satisfies your desires so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not accuse, nor will He harbor His anger forever,
He does not treat us as our sins deserve (thank You, Jesus! editorial praise!)
or repay us according to our iniquities.
**For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those
who fear Him;
as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our
transgressions from us.
*As a father has compassion on His children, SO the Lord has compassion
on those who fear Him, *for He knows how we are formed, He remembers
that we are but dust.
The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
and His kingdom rules over all.......

Hi! I'm so glad he got to get "out and about" for the most part. :) You guys are always in my prayers! I found another song for you, the lyrics are amazing!

Before the Morning by Josh Wilson

Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you?
If there's a God who loves you
Where is He now?

Or maybe there are things you can't see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending
Someday, somehow you'll see, you'll see

Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing?
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It can't compare to the joy that's coming

So hold on, you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It's just the dark before the morning

My friend, you know how this all ends
And you know where you're going
You just don't know how you'll get there
So say a prayer

And hold on
'Cause there's good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time, but you'll see the bigger picture

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory
Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory, memory, memory

Come on, you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It's just the hurt before the healing

Hope today is as good as yesterday! And better! :)
