Once again, as I sit here, I am about ready to fall asleep. Today was a good day for Josh. He spent a lot of time again, testing out wheelchairs and seeing what feels the best to him. He is pretty sure he is ready to order and wanting the color to be "lollipop blue." This is a shockingly bright blue color that reminds him of his X-Terra he drove while living in San Diego. He's a silly boy!
We had lots of visitors and the kids came home from Indiana with their grandparents. It was so nice to see them and be able to hug all over them. Noah continues to act oblivious to the situation and Zoe notices a lot. Tonight, as I was putting her to bed, she got quite quiet and said "Do you remember when Daddy could walk?" I answered yes, but she had no further comments. It's obvious that she is processing a lot.
I came home to find my house full of new boxes from Two Men and a Truck. Someone came by and dropped off a ton of boxes to help with packing tomorrow. We were so appreciative. The packing should be interesting. We don't know if 1 person or 10 will show up. It definitely takes some of the moving stress off of my shoulders to know that people are willing to help! Thank you so much!
Today, Josh noticed he is gaining some sensation to temperature on his left thumb area. That would be wonderful to be able to do so he doesn't burn himself when holding a cup of coffee, or to be able to check the temp of the baby bottle on his hand. Little things like that do matter. They give us hope and encouragement for the future.
God put numerous people in our path today that prayed with us and provided some much needed TLC. One of the girls from our first youth group in Indiana called tonight and was so sweet. She prayed with me over the phone and just wanted to see how we were doing. It's so cool to hear from all these people from our past and see where they're at and where God is leading them.
So, all in all, a good day. Please begin to pray that Josh will have enough energy to make it to church on Sunday and that it goes well. PT Kristy will be there to help us if we need her. It never hurts when you're therapist attends the same church as you! Oh the perks. :-)
