Update on Josh 10/19/16 8:00 pm
Today was an active day for Josh. He is back off the ventilator after the surgery and only has to wear his neck brace while he is doing physical therapy.
Today Josh accomplished 3 things:
1. His eyes tracked our mom around the hospital room.
2. He moved his left hand without a response to stimuli, meaning it was an intentional movement.
3. His physical therapists were able to sit Josh up in a chair. While in the chair, he was able to get a big hug from his momma.
Tonight we ask for prayers of continued progress. We would also ask for prayers that next steps in Josh's transfer process will become more clear.
This accident has taught our family several things. It has taught us to rely on our faith as well as our family and friends. We all have bad days and good days but it has been our faith and all of you that have made this journey manageable. Without either one of those two things, this whole picture looks a lot different. We thank you for the support that all of you have provided. We thank you for the constant encouragement even though we can't always find the words to respond. We thank you for lifting our family up and interceding on our behalf. We thank you for mowing our grass and making dinner and sending care packages and the time you are investing in our family.
Matthew 18:20 says "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." We thank you for gathering for Josh. We thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus.
All In For Josh
