Thank YOU GOD for all the mothers who have influenced my life. What a gift you have given me to have so many great women in my life. From my own mommy to my wonderful grandma to my dear mother-in-law. But then there are the aunts, neighbors, church ladies, nurses, doctors, teachers, and friends who all share love and knowledge with me. Thank YOU GOD for all my moms in my life.

Happy Mother's Day to you. Yesterday marked one whole month of being out of the hospital. Josh is making improvements each week. We are very encouraged.

Josh's tummy is making the greatest improvements. He has been eating a lot of yogurt and it is "righting" things. He's pooping less and he has only gotten sick 3 times this week. So grateful to GOD for manifesting this part of Josh's healing this week.

Josh is still tinkling a little everyday. Yesterday was his highest yet with 140mls. We give thanks for each new improvement.

He is getting physically stronger. Standing for longer periods of time. Looking stronger when he does walk a few steps. He loves having his brothers around to talk and play. You can see it in his eyes he wants to get up and run with them. He fantasizes about going to Chuck E Cheeses, Funland, Build-a-bear, the movies, school, McDonalds, baseball games, Pizza Hut, school, on vacation, and just being home. He has big plans. GOD has big plans prosper Josh and not to harm him.

After speaking to the doctors, they anticipate Josh will be able to come home to Fredericksburg sometime around July 9th (day 180 post-transplant) if he continues to progress as nicely as he is. Looking forward to going home very much.

I have a prayer that I like to say for Josh everyday now and if you pray for Josh, I would like you to say it for him too as often as you can:

Thank YOU GOD for always keeping YOUR Word. Matthew 21:21-22 says "Jesus replied I tell you the truth, if you have Faith and do not doubt, you can not only do what was done to the fig tree but, you can say to this mountain 'go throw yourself into the sea' and it will be done for you. If you believe you will have whatever you ask for in prayer." LORD I believe every word YOU say. And because I trust and believe, I give thanks to YOU that Josh's body is healed. Thank YOU that Josh's body is whole. Thank YOU that Josh's body functions according to the way YOU created the human body to function. I declare in Jesus' name that Josh's body will not have any malfunctions. Jesus is Josh's Healer. Jesus is Josh's Healer. Jesus is Josh's Healer. Because by Jesus' stripes Josh is Healed. In Jesus' name I give Thanks in prayer---AMEN

Thank you for joining me in prayer. I give thanks for all of you and pray for GOD to bless you abundantly.

Will update as things progress. Until next time, have fun.


Dear LORD~

Thank YOU for manifesting Josh's healing before our very eyes. Thank YOU for every step closer YOU bring him to his complete healing I have prayed for him to receive. Thank YOU again for using Josh for YOUR Glory and to display YOUR Power. It is in Jesus' name I give Thanks in Prayer---AMEN!!!
