MARCH 16TH - Day #1 Post Surgery...
IRREVERSIBLE, PARAPLEGIC, COMPLETELY PARALYZED FROM THE CHEST DOWN..... these were the surgeon's words we struggled to digest ten days ago. - Eman can feel his legs!!! Eman's legs are moving!!! - I was reading to him yesterday afternoon and I squeezed his knee and his whole leg popped up. Throughout the course of the afternoon he legs stretched, moved, reacted to stimulus. This is a DIRECT answer to your prayers. We cannot tell you how ENCOURAGED Eman is and ALL of us are. Eman is not controlling these movements, but he CAN feel them, and he can now feel EVERYTHING. I tested him, covering his eyes and asked him "where" we were squeezing his legs/feet - he identified correctly every time. Psalms 139 - "Where can I go from Your spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold YOU ARE THERE. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, EVEN THERE Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me."
