Monday, May 18, 11:30 AM

It's been 3 weeks since I've posted any updates. Life is pretty much the same with very few big changes. Since the celebration things have been pretty steady. Jonathan has been released from physical therapy. He is doing great walking, so much so that he does not need physical therapy any longer. Further exercises and strengthening will be done on his own. He is still going to occupational therapy on Monday's and Friday's because his right elbow still is not able to fully extend and he is limited in his use of his right arm because of it. Wednesday's he, along with my parents, attend a nuero-physicologist therapy session. His understanding of things is great. It is the controlling of certain reactions that is difficult. We are still learning how to adjust to it all. Life is different now. He still has no sight in his right eye and therefore his abilities in many areas of life are limited. That's frustrating! He still does not have his full independence because of his reliance on others for many things still. It's a tough road to walk, but God is teaching us grace. Although, we readily admit that we, like all doctors, are still "in practice". It's tough. Honestly, sometimes it really tough, but the alternative, him not being here, would have been heart breaking. So, we're thankful, in the midst of the frustration :)

At the end of June Jonathan has a psych eval. IT is two days long and the results will determine if he is released to drive and work and many other things. He is VERY anxious to take the test and praying he passes with flying colors. So, please, keep that in your prayers. That God's perfect timing and hand would be present. He knows what is best - always. So, we're trusting.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers. The updates are becoming very sporadic I know and will most likely continue to be that way. This is simply life now. We are all just trying our best to live it out each day. So, though you may not get frequent updates, please keep up those frequent prayers. We are still ever so in need of them!! :)
