Thank you for Praying!!

Wow- I have some good news to post!! To be quite honest I am surprised about this, being a christian it may seem like I did not have the faith in God like I should have. I prayed for a miracle but doubted... I guess I have learned a lesson. About a month ago I posted about my cousin's son Brian who had brain cancer. He had just had a severe stroke and was sent home from the hospital to be "with" his family. There was nothing they could do for him. I don't have any of the specifics but yesterday I got an email from my cousin- I was nervous to open it... But guess what that- mountain moving, gasp giving, awe inspiring God did now?  (this quote is from Linny's blog !) Brian is doing much better. His mom said he is still fighting and amazing his doctors! He has made changes for the better and is making some progress towards recovery! He will start in home physical therapy tomorrow. They have been doing some themselves and it has been helping!

The stroke was quite severe so he will be entering into a rehab facility soon for physical, speech and occupational therapy. He has a long road ahead of him but he is determined to get better. They are so thankful for all the prayers, thankful that he is still with them and hope that he will defy the doctors and make a full recovery.

I do not know what Brian's future will be but I do know that I have a thankful cousin- they are thankful for every moment they can spend with him, They are thankful for the many prayers that are coming their way, they are thankful for his progress and it give them more hope with each day!

Thank you so much for you prayers and please keep praying! God hears you and it is so appreciated!
Blessing to you,

Wow!! That is wonderful! I gotta admit, even though I prayed and asked the Lord for a miracle...the situation sounded so grim that I had some doubt also.

I will continue to pray!! Yippee Jesus (to also quote the great Linny!).
