Ps. 117:1 Praise the LORD, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
2 For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.
Praise the LORD.
At about 8:20am, 48 hrs ago, I got a phone call I won't forget while I'm alive on earth.
Life can change really fast and what seems important one minute doesn't seem important at all then next.
The night was uneventful, which is great. I'm sitting here talking to Grant and I just made him laugh. He doesn't remember anything that has happened to him in the last 24 hrs. even the things we have told him just an hour ago. I told him if he kept asking me the same question it would be like talking to Teresa. She has to ask the same question 4 different ways to see if you will give her the same answer. I think she is just trying to keep us honest. We love our "Ninja-CPR giving-Lifesaver-Mom".
The sun is shining through our window and The Son is shining in our hearts as we rejoice that He has given us another day with our sweet Grant. He looks great. He is uncomfortable, which is good because he knows what he likes, which is better than not knowing anything.
Lam. 3:21 Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."
25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD.
Grant is going to have another Eco-cardiogram today to compare it to the 2 he has had in the past 2 days. I think they are still trying to make sure there is nothing obvious going on, but I'm not completely sure.
We will probably discuss the timing of the next procedure and then we will have to wait to see how he feel and reacts to everything.
He looks amazing for what he has gone through.
Please know that we love you all and relish your prayers. We love having you come by and visit us. Grant will probably not be seeing anyone until after the defibrillator procedure is done and they move him to another room. So come if you like, no pressure, and be encouraged by the others that are here.
The prayer requests are the same as last night and as soon as I know more I will give you an update.
Grant wants to read the blog and since he is awake I'll have him try to load the pictures onto it. No promises, but Grant in his state is much more "techy" than I am in my normal state.
Praise God from whom all blessings low.
Praise Him for He gives us life and breathe.
Praise Him for His faithfulness at night, and in the morning.
Our God is GOOD!
Rejoicing with my son, in the sun and in The Son,
