Today was a very special day for me. First I’d like to wish Jesus a Happy Birthday. It’s only because of you Lord that we celebrate Christmas. Thank you for your love God, for your many blessings we are given everyday, for answered prayers, and especially your son Jesus. Monday was an important day for me my doctor came in and said the drainage was low enough that my drains and stitches could come out. That was the first time in three months that I didn’t have anything attached to my back. Today, was Christmas and I finally was discharged from Gaylord my home away from home. My parents came and picked me up at around ten-thirty this morning. Just being in a car driving home felt so great! I honestly didn’t think I would make it home for Christmas this year but God answers prayers, “for we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28. It was so amazing to be home today with my family, to be back in my own house. My physical disability really hit me hard today being in my house for the first time. Moving through my house in the wheelchair was difficult to do not physically, but emotionally. It was tough because I know that the things I use to be able to do in my house I know longer can. I have to find new ways and means to get by. But just like everything else I will adapt and move forward. It’s going to be frustrating and difficult but “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phil 4:13. This Christmas might have been the most memorable Christmas for me. Being able to be home with my family was such a blessing on this wonderful day.
I would like to thank all the friends of my parents who have given up their time to help my family get our house ready for me to live in, I’d like to thank Sarah for the fundraiser she did on Patuisett, selling t-shirts to raise money to help my family, I would also like to thank those that have donated to my recovery fund at giveforward.com and for the donations that my family has received.
Thank you to each and everyone of you for the love, support and prayers.
