We have been relearning these lessons as we have gone through these days here in GR. God calls us to trust in him, to delight in him, to commit our ways to him and then to be still before him and wait patiently.
Whitney is getting back into her independence mode more and more. She is doing all her preparations for the day: showering, dressing, getting to therapies, using the kitchen in her room, meeting with her neuropsychologist and doing a great job of it all. Her strength and endurance increase a little more each day; she is going to be able to beat me in arm wrestling the way she is bulking up.
She is working hard in speech and occupational therapies. Her speed at processing improves slowly, but it is still improvement. The same thing is true about her reaction speed.
She has an evaluation tomorrow. We are praying for a good report, Whitney wants to be going home but we are extremely happy and thankful to God for the progress she has obviously made already. We again are leaning heavily on those here at Hope Rehabilitation who are expertise in this area of traumatic brain injury.
One absolutely awesome piece of news to share with you… NO MORE STOMACH NEEDLES! Whitney got the word this evening, so as of tonight she does not have to endure that anymore. She had a huge smile on her face – all dimples showing – when she gave us the news. One more step in the process…Praise God!
We continue in our prayers for you and for the families of all involved in this accident. May God keep you in His care, may His comfort surround you and His strength uphold you.
In Christ alone, Whitney’s dad
