Can I just say a joy filled day!!! Nick had a lot of therapy evaluation today. HE could be at Brooks any where from 3 weeks to 3 months. We know Nick over achiever and always ahead of schedule.
I just wanted to be a little nosey and see what they were doing with him, so I decided to go back up during afternoon therapy he was with occupational. She told him 3 words to remember and said she would ask him in 5 minutes what there where......5 minutes came, around he remembered 2 of them and I could not remember ANY of them. It got Nick tickled (made me nervous) and the therapist said I was distracting him. Kissed Nick bye and left!!
They are continuing to wean him off the pain meds. If you visit him you will notice right now he is a little foggy on some things that will get better over the next week or so. It kind of frustrates Nick because he cannot control it. But he is doing great. He said I am going to beat this!! We have surrendered.
Surrender: Let Go and Let God Work by Rick Warren
Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Psalm 37:7
Surrendering your life means:
Following God's lead without knowing where he's sending you;
Waiting for God's timing without knowing when it will come;
Expecting a miracle without knowing how God will provide;
Trusting God's purpose without understanding the circumstances.
You know you're surrendered to God when you rely on God to work things out instead of trying to manipulate others, force your agenda, and control the situation. You let go and let God work. You don't have to always be in charge. Instead of trying harder, you trust more.
