Yep - last night was hard - the hardest one yet! When I got back to the hospital this morning, they had the pain more controlled and he was in decent spirits.
Randy and I headed down to grab him some b'fast and when we got back up to his room the Physical Therapist had him sitting in a wheelchair!!!! THE BEST THING I'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME!!!!! We wheeled him downstairs and outside and showed him the helipad where he arrived almost 2 weeks ago. He was exhausted when we got back - but what a HUGE step!! We have a few more hurdles to pass before we can get him home, but everyone here says we'll be able to do it - lots of work, but they are encouraging us to get him home.
Today my brother Martin, wife Jacquee and son Oscar came up from Portland to visit . Nathan enjoyed chatting with them and it was so good to see them!
Pray for Nathan's frustration level as every day he realizes more and more how broken he is.
Pray for Randy and I as we learn how to do "this".
I can't wait to get home and cook for my family, have friends come by, and enjoy the healing process God is going to bring us all through!!
We continue to covet your prayers! God is so faithful - even in the dark times I am so aware of His constant presence!
