Wednesday update from Dad: 11-21-12

Thank you for checking in on Shane tonight; he has had a pretty amazing day. Along with staying very active with his varied therapies he seems to maintain quite a full social life. This afternoon he received a visit from a very close Cape friend of many years who is a very real part of our family; Haley who now resides in Maryland who just graduated from Loyola and visiting her family in Mass. visited him with Chelsea. After that I was trying to find a time to visit him but seemed to have some difficulty. After Haley’s visit a close friend from ECSU stopped by and spent a couple of hours with Shane, Amanda. I tried to squeeze in after that but Shane shared that his friends who attend Fordham, was down visiting. When I arrived Jake was there with 2 of his fellow football players as well as Ryan from Western Mass. and Raven from UConn (all high school buddies and really close friends). After being there for 5 minutes Nate, KJ, and a couple of other Eastern friends came in. After combing through all of the empty rooms next to Shane’s and scrounging any available chairs (I hope Gaylord is not reading this) and visiting with all of the young men for a few I gave Shane my love and said good night.

There is something very amazing happening with Shane that pretty much defies most of what we have been told. Over the last few sessions with his Physical Therapist Shane has been able in a lying down position (not against gravity) to move his legs about a foot in both directions with his left and today with his right. He was only able to move his right in one direction over the last couple of days but as of today was able to go in both directions, very gingerly and somewhat slow but is moving all the same. He called me in tears the day before last and shared the news with me. We offer praise to our Lord and know he is in control; as I said about a month ago He will have the last word on the matter. Shane is committed to working hard, moving forward, and is excited where he will be over the next couple of months. Again, we rejoice over these new developments and are expectant of great things; the power of prayer is a reality and we are so grateful for what is taking place.

Have a wonderful day of thanks tomorrow; love on your family and friends and have a great day!!!

  8. To the Mosko family, Happy Thanksgiving, so happy to hear such greaT news! on Shane’s recovery, GLORY BE TO GOD!
    I hope that you guys realized that what you are going through, speaks, inspires, ministers to all of us, at least for me, BIG TIME!; as Gayle said before about taking things for granted in life, I am reminded, and shaken everyday to be grateful, and I do not take things for granted as much as before (I know I still do), but what you guys are going through, GOD is using for others; it inspires me everyday to keep on going. I guess this is what we call GOD’S PLAN!
    I do not remember the verse but I now it is in HIS word, HE does not waste any struggle.
    (may be somebody will remind us of that verse, thanks!)
    WITH MUCH LOVE!
