Hallelujah....Brad is OFF BEDREST!!

Brad went in to the doctor on Tuesday for his follow-up appointment. We are thrilled to announce that he is OFF bedrest! Hallelujah!!

Brad had a few instructions for Dr. Marco when we went in on Tuesday...Brad let him know that he would be taking out his stitches that day, he would be starting PT the next and he would be swimming in his pool by the weekend. Dr. Marco said that the plan seemed reasonable enough to him. Hooray!

Brad said that once he is able to get into the pool, he invisions himself taking the Nestea plunge. I think we will have to have a party at that point. We are so excited for this new-found freedom for Brad. He is even driving! It is such a relief to see him moving around the house and getting out and about now. It gives me such a sense of peace to see him moving forward towards recovery. He is in great spirits and I know that he is looking forward to regaining strength in his right leg. He is especially looking to the day when he can chuck those crutches into a lake somewhere!

We are so thankful for God's healing on Brad. We are thankful for all of your continued support during these past eight months. I know that we could not have done it without you. You are an amazing family of believers and we send a prayer of thanks each night thanking God for each of you. Praise God for his healing power!
