He rescued me because He DELIGHTED in me.
We are so thankful to the Lord! Clayton seems to have turned a corner in the right direction and is now traveling down the road to recovery! It has been over a week since his last major headache and he is gaining strength literally by the day. We went to Memphis yesterday for his follow up appointment with the neurosurgeon and to quote her talking to Clayton: "God healed your boo-boo." We couldn't agree more!
You can just tell by looking in his eyes that he is feeling like his old self. He is staying up for longer periods of time and doesn't even have to nap on some days. He still has some obstacles to overcome, namely strength and fine motor skills in his right hand. Sitting in his regular wheelchair for the duration of the doctor visit yesterday wore him out. His trunk has always been his weakest point, so it's no wonder he has no strength in it after laying in bed for a month. He has use of his right hand, but his movement patterns are definitely not the same. He tends to fist it up a lot more when he never fisted it in the past. I hate seeing the regression in what was his only functional extremity, but we'll just keep attacking it with all types of therapy, and pray the movement patterns return. I also pray this happens quickly as I already see him getting frustrated with his lack of control of his fingers.
There is no way to describe how thankful we are for the prayers and support we have received during this last month! We have felt the love from across town, the nation, and the globe!!! Knowing so many people are praying for my little boy literally brings me tears. THANK YOU for taking time out of your days to lift him up--your prayers are still being answered and I hope that you see that in his beautiful smile!
