Wow, a year has passed and what a change in The youngest. Last Thanksgiving we were still stuck, but getting some traction. We had our usual feast but the youngest ate in his room due to the intense anxiety he was feeling. This year just wow, and thankful for all the positive steps that have come with this year. To round out last year , the youngest had a seizure which scared us all but it seemed to reset something in his brain, and from then on it was forward movement. Some days were small tiny steps, others were more impressive.
This year has been exciting seeing him come up from that pit he was in and seeing him take charge of his own self. For instance he started walking and then decided he needed to be jogging and then he decided he would do 10,000 steps per day. Part of those steps are jogging and part are jogging. He also made a milestone of one million steps!!! We are all inspired to keep our walking up because of what he is doing – no because of his leading and inspiring.
So on this Thanksgiving day I am thankful. Thankful that the Lord God continues to pour out patience, endurance and health on me and my family. Thankful for the doctors, counselors, nurses, phlebotomist and others who touch our lives. From the smiling receptionist at the lab where he gets his blood drawn, to the receptionist at Oasis. Just very thankful. Psalm 100 yes I will be making a joyful noise ( since I do not sing well lol) and praise to the Almighty for His continued good works.
