Everyday seems to be a good day for Nate! What an answer to prayer! I believe that Nate is making a FULL and rapid recovery. It is SO exciting to be on the receiving end of answered prayer. I wish that I could know more of what is going on, on his "insides". We know and have been told - the symptoms of a brain injury can take months - sometimes years to return to "normal". Nathan has a wicked headache due to swelling of the brain - and cannot take narcotics to relieve it. (narcotics are not recommended for brain injury). At the same time, I would like to pray that the pain, however long it lasts, would be a daily reminder of how God has saved him, and finds him of GREAT worth! Mark and I are astounded how God has rescued Nate, and we are so grateful!
8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:8-9)
This Christmas, more than ever, I want to scream from the mountain tops -- that I love Him, even though I have not seen him, and I AM filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for the end result of that is salvation of my soul! God with me! ( as I walk this journey, not alone, but with Him!) God IN me, as I walk along side of, and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Oh that I would ponder than in my heart -- as Mary did!
Pray for wisdom and discernment for follow up care and rehabilitation
Pray that Nate's heart would be protected
Pray for headaches to subside
