God continues to answer our prayers. We have been praying that Ian would respond to his therapists so that we would get more therapy visits, and he did exactly that yesterday when he held my hand.
Val L- You get a special shout-out tonight. Ian had a modified barium swallow done today and he did really well. He swallowed when he was supposed to and everything. They said he could start having thickened liquids orally so today he had some coffee. I can't wait to hear from Ian what his memories of his sessions with you are....I'm thinking they'll be pretty hilarious:) we miss you tons Val!
"When we reach heaven, there will be no sanctifying us there, no squaring us with affliction, no planing us with suffering. No, we must be made ready here—all that Christ will do he will do now; and when he has done it, we shall be ferried by a loving hand across the stream of death, and brought to the heavenly Jerusalem, to abide as eternal pillars in the temple of our Lord."
