This past Thursday, Nathan saw a neurologist, we were given a good report. He will be able to go to work the beginning of March. That still seems like a long time away, but Nathan continues to show a lot of patience. He's been given drugs to help with the pain, and although it doesn't cover all the pain, it seems bearable. He said to me, "Mom, I don't want all the pain to go away. I need some of it there - all the time, just to remind me of where I've been... I'm never going back!"
Having gone through this trial, I am SO aware of God's hand on us! In a petrifying event, I have found peace. I continue to pray, but it is on a different level now. I know that even if the outcome is not what I have asked for, God is working for my good. He is a GOOD God - no matter what.
