Thank You Jesus!

I just woke up and was in pretty bad pain and it took me about 5 minutes alone to get the strength to sit up and go use the bathroom. This is pretty much how it is each time now and I'm sure it's only going to get worse in the next four weeks, but that is fine! I'll have a precious son to hold and love on...so this pain is worth it!! After I went to the bathroom, I was thinking about Brian and wonder how he was doing and I kid you not, as soon as I sat back on the bed to climb back into bed...I got a text message!!! In the past week, EVERY phone call and text message, my heart has just dropped because I didn't know whether it was going to be horrible news or good news. I felt pretty positive about this text due to Brian's great improvements yesterday. So I checked it and it was from Ashley and she said that Brian is awake!!! He smiled at his parents when he saw them in the room and is sitting there with his eyes open!!! This is truly a miracle and a blessing and God is doing work!! Prayers work when it is His will. It is His will for Brian to make it through this and be with his family and to meet his new son. I couldn't possibly go back to bed before coming to post the update!!! I'm just too excited and proud of Brian to go back to sleep and do it later! HAHA. Keep praying as he continues to come back and let's hope he'll be the same Brian and will be able to remember everything and be able to talk and all!! I know he will. Thank you again for all the prayers, but let's not quit praying just because he's awake now!!!!

When my MeMaw was diagnosed with cancer, we were told to all just read Psalms Chapter 23 everyday. I printed it out on little stock cards for me and everyone around who deeply cares about my MeMaw and to this day...I still have it in my truck. We prayed and prayed and God took care of her!! I knew He would do the same for Brian. Here is Psalms 23:

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

UPDATE -

After I went back to bed and got up, I had a few more updates on Brian. I am bawling my eyes out with happy tears now. They said Sharon (Brian's Mom) held up a picture in front of him of Levi and he squeezed her hand and tears started coming down his face. So he remembers having his baby!! They said he's trying to talk, but you know...being "away" for a little over a week and having tubes all down your throat for that long..it's gonna take a little extra while for that to happen, but I KNOW he will!!! I had to share the wonderful story!!!
