We hope that you have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day

So much has happened lately where do I begin?? First of all thank you for your prayers for my ankle it is starting to feel much better, though I think I did too much today as it is very swollen tonight. I've never sprained my ankle before so I've been surprised that it hasn't healed a lot sooner. When I fell, I really did a number to my back and yesterday I had the worst headache that I've had in a long time, I went to the Chiropractor and found out that along with spraining my ankle and knocking my back out of whack I also suffered whiplash. Enough about me, please just keep praying for a complete healing, thank you.

Luke has been doing pretty good lately, though he was really sick on Sunday night. We went out to dinner with Daniel's girlfriend, Kristin's family to meet her grandparents on Sunday evening not realizing that Luke was sick. I thought to myself that he was looking pretty pale when we were at the Restaurant and when we got home realized just how sick he was after finding out his temperature was at 103.5, his heart rate in the 170's and his oxygen levels in the the high 80's. Needless to say we got him on oxygen right away, gave him some Tylenol and called my parents to get some prayer going. After getting him up to 3 liters of oxygen and anointing him with oil, he finally began to do better. The prayers really did the job once again, as by the time we went to bed he was down to 1/4 liter of oxygen, his heart rate was in the 120's, which is still high but better and his fever was down to 99 degrees. Monday he was fine, except for the fact he been a bit "junky" in the chest and nose.

Monday night I found out that Luke will no longer get any more therapies this year as we've maxed him out. He only gets 60 PT, OT, ST and massage appointments a year. I'm thanking the Lord that I called the place he goes for PT and OT, to find out how many he had for the year, because he was at 51, along with his 9 Vital Stim therapy, which is classified at ST we are completely out of visits. I have a bit of mixed emotions about this in the fact that part of me is happy because we have two less days of running around, but also a bit bummed as I hope and pray that I will be able to get enough time in my week to do all his Range of Motion exercises. I'm also praying that I didn't miscount and end up with a huge bill, as it is we already pay $32 a visit.

This past week has been a week of some extreme challenges, but mixed with some very unexpected blessings. I will blog again in a few days to share with you all the things that I'm thankful for, which seems to be so much lately. Please have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, I pray that you will be blessed with a Day filled with joy and goodness.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue
