Country music singer, Dub Miller came to our house today to sing to Brad (thanks to our friend Scott Kramer). Dub sang some songs about Aggieland, including the fight song and quite a few other songs. We were so moved by his gesture to take time out of his day to give us our own personal concert.
Brad had a good day today. He slept very well last night (thank you God for the consistant, good rest), coughed a little less, and used the nasal canular most of the day (relying less on the oxygen mask which uses a higher oxygen flow). We are so encouraged by Brad's gradual improvements.
The daily support of all our family this past week has been incredible. The time that we have spent together is absolutely priceless. I doubt there has ever been another time in Brad's life that he has been able to spend so many uninterrupted days together with his entire family. It has been a precious gift.
Tonight in prayer Brad & I thanked God for the time that He has given to us. We both feel so blessed for these past several days....days that were not promised to us, but given to us anyway. We have been spending several times a day in meditation, visualizing God's hand laying on Brad and healing his body completely...visualizing the distruction of all his tumors. Our family has been so supportive to join us in these "hands on" meditation sessions. The meditations have given Brad hope, encouragement, peace, and a strong feeling of security in a time of uncertainty. I am so grateful for these sessions. I, myself, often start out feeling desperate & anxious, then leave the sessions calm & peaceful. Brad has been reading a book titled, "Remarkable Recoveries." He found that meditation was one tool that most of the patients shared. Brad & I have been meditating for several weeks together....but it feels even more powerful with the additional family praying/meditating with us.
After all of the focused prayers of so many people, I feel certain that God is going to heal Brad. I have never felt more certain of that than I do at this very moment. It is undeniable that the Lord's presence surrounds our family and is carrying us through this trial.
This is a great shot of Krista and Brad.
