Tonight I am sitting here watching Joel move his foot. You are not misreading this; Joel is moving his right foot without stimulation. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! He has been moving this foot for about ten minutes or so. His foot is lying on top of a blanket elevated, and the toes are moving as I write this. I had two nurses come in to see it for themselves.
Please continue in earnest prayer to the one who can raise up little Joel. His skin color is rather dark, and his urine out put has slowed down. We need the Father to do what only He can do and sustain Joel’s life. We also tried to restart his nutrition, but he did not take it at all. Pray for wisdom and guidance as we seek to care for Joel
We are making preparations to leave the hospital on Wednesday, Lord willing, sometime before noon. As of this writing we do not have any formal nursing care to help when we get home. Please pray for the Lord’s provision in that area. The Lord has sustained Joel for 18 days now, and for that we are grateful. The road has been difficult at times, but we know that ‘all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose’. We can rest on that bedrock truth, that God is sovereign in all things. May He raise up Joel in His time…..
