Not a lot of news

So sorry I haven't posted, but honestly, not a lot of news these days - which is a good thing.

Emily and I had a good trip over to Spokane, and it was SO good to see my Brandon!! The weather was beautiful, and Emily even got some highway driving in!!

Nathan got a haircut Saturday - YES!! I'll talk him in to a picture soon! We had lots of visitors on the weekend and that really helps pass time and keep his spirits up.

Today we had a Dr. appointment, and the Medical supply came with a gel seat for the wheel chair - thanks Uncle Steve!!! Can't wait to see how it works for Nathan tomorrow!

Tomorrow we go to Dr. Korthuis/Physical Therapist (and Uncle :-), for the first time. Wednesday we have an ambulance picking us up at 7:45 AM to head down to Harborview to meet with the Ortho team, hopefully get the left leg into a brace that bends, and get the cast off the right arm.

Please pray that things look great and that the bone in the femur has started growing back - this would mean no bone grafts. Nathan is really stressed out about possibly having to have more surgeries - I'm not thrilled at the thought either - but God is Sovereign and we rest in HIS plan for our lives.
Psalm 108:1-5
"My heart is steadfast, O God;
I will sing and make music with all my soul.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of You among the peoples.
For great is Your love, higher than the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let Your glory be over all the earth.
Save us and help us with Your right hand,
that those You love may be delivered."

So glad for another update! It sounds like things continue to heal on schedule and Nathan is managing as well as can be expected. We have read your blogs almost daily as a family and are praying for all of you. Love the Edwards

Isn't life GrANd when all the chicks return to the nest? Even for a short time it means so much.
A different summer than you planned but there will probably be some super family moments. Enjoy!
