What an awesome day Saturday was! Dave had an awesome nights sleep Friday night and it led right into having a great day Saturday.
A first!- Dave had his first meal sitting up in his wheel chair! Now this may not seem huge to some but try eating while in bed only halfway sitting up! It's not fun! This also led to another first: we had dinner together last night as a family in the cafeteria! It was so awesome! Dave was able to sit and have a normal meal with his family....this is a huge breakthrough....Thank you Jesus!
Highlight: After Dave went on a stroll yesterday in his chair, he wanted to take a detour when it was time to go back to his room. Dave has an old acquaintance (coworker) that is also in the same hospital. Dave asked to go by his room and when they did, Dave took the time to encourage and lift up this guy. This is so cool! To be in the situation that Dave is in and take the time to "be there" for someone else is just awesome! This is a prime example of Daves heart to love and serve people.
I want to encourage everyone to take the time to celebrate the small things in life. It's very important we celebrate these things with Dave as we gain ground. We're seeing God do some awesome things in Daves life....God is so good!
Thank you SO much for your continued prayers and encouragement!
