Giving Thanks

What a special time of year. We stopped on Thursday to give thanks to God for all that He is and does. On Friday we were given so much more to be thankful for.

John fell through our attic onto our garage floor while taking down christmas ornaments. His head was bleeding, but he was conscious. We took him to the ER and CT scan revealed his back had broken in his 11th vertebrae. Our Dr. said 50% of all 10ft falls are fatal. We were sent home with various meds to help John cope.

Today we saw a Neuro surgeon for his back. With rest and a back brace John should be healed in two or three months! The surgeon said he has seen cases like this were the people don't make it. And here, by God's grace, John is walking around, pretty dizzy and stiff. But he is alive. He is well. Lord willing he will heal. So humbled that every breath is given by God. And thankful for God having more in store for John here on earth! Praises be to His name. As for me and my house, we will praise the Lord!

Oh My! I'm so thankful with you that he is okay! Praise God! Will be praying for a full recovery. I suppose that is one way to get your wifey to wait on you hand and foot for awhile! :)
