Isaiah is now several months past his injury, he is still paralyzed, he spent two months in Levine's Children's Hospital, had several weeks of rehab locally, spent three days in the hospital here in Shelby, he has spent one month at Shepherd's Center in Atlanta for more intensive therapies. And he's had one outpatient surgery
He has worn out one set of tires on his wheelchair, the tires he has now are only a couple weeks old.
He has been denied the standing frame by our insurance, so we've appealed that, he has also been denied an FES machine by our insurance so we've appealed that. (Please pray that we will be able to have these items approved or be able to raise the money to purchase these items)
Isaiah has had significant support when he was first injured especially. Our church family has been a tremendous blessing to our family.
He has not had too many bad days, he has had some bad days. Fortunately not too many.
His faith and trust in God even on his bad days are remarkable.
Isaiah continues to need your prayer support and we thank you very much for praying.
Also since Isaiah's injury we've had to move so that Isaiah would have more room. In addition to our moving many of Isaiah's friends have moved or will be moving soon, as their parents go on to work in various ministries.
Something Isaiah greatly misses is being able to go outside and walk the dogs or cut the grass. Those were two of his favorite things to do.
We've set up a fundraiser for Isaiah to help meet his needs. You may find that here http://www.gofundme.com/3rrspc
Isaiah's life has forever been changed because of his spinal cord injury. Please pray that God will help him to always trust him even when life is difficult.
Romans 8:28 has been a blessing and a very real encouragement to me as we've faced this year. Because it is one of the greatest promises God has given to His children. And that promise is that "all things" not some things, but "All things" work together for good for those who love him.. And by that we are greatly comforted even when life is unpleasant and difficult.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
