Just keeping you posted

Hi Everyone!

Nathan completed his first week with therapy at MarianJoy.  Just a side note -- MarionJoy has been wonderful!  Everyone is so helpful, friendly and seem very devoted to Nathan's case!  Mark and I were commenting that we weren't sure that Nathan really needed much help -- he seems very normal, with occasional "search for words".  In one of the testings they offered him however, his therapist told Nate a story -- with the direction that he needed to repeat the story - word for word.  The story was only 4 sentences long.  Nathan was only able to recall the first sentence -- none of the rest.  That was eyeopening to me.  I am thrilled though, that they are able to pinpoint his deficit, and then rehabilitate him where it is needed.  Nathan continues to show patience with the whole situation, though I must admit, he is more than willing to speak to anyone about the journey he's been on.  And, that's good!  It's been a significant journey!  We ALL talk about it -- all the time.

Continue to pray for Nathan -- that he will understand God's plan for his life - clearly - as he continually surrenders his life to God.

 “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)

Much love to all of you~

  2. I was just thinking about Nate tonight and wondering how he was doing. Glad to hear things are mostly moving forward! Thanks for the continued updates.

  3. We continue to pray for Nathan physically and spiritually. He is such a sweetie.

    Although he remains on a difficult journey, he has the love, support, and prayers from many friends and family. God is in control and knows exactly what Nathan needs. Continuing to pray and believe that he will one day be completely restored physically, and stay restored spiritually.
