God is So Kind

One less huge surgery that Ian has to go through. The orthopedic surgeon today chuckled when he looked at the x-rays of Ian's knee. Ian's bone has fused itself in such a way that he does not need the extensive surgery and he can start weight-bearing therapy on it. The surgery that they were thinking of doing was just another form of fusing his knee so that it is stable- but God did that in His own way. This opens up a whole new realm of therapy that Ian can begin. Further surgeries could be a possibility somewhere in Ian's future, but he's fine for now. Praise God.

Ian's doctor at Children's also said that the wound on his back is definitely healing and getting smaller. Also, his body is responding to hydration in the way that it should.

God is so kind to give us these mercies. It amazes me that even while Ian's nutrition was low, God still allowed his bones to do miraculous things. Let's keep praying for more miracles.

Lamentations 3:22-24 "The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 'The LORD is my portion,' says my soul, 'therefore I will hope in him.'"

Romans 8:31-32 "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?"

John 1:16 "And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace."

God is good; all the time.
