Good news, and good news, and some more good news.

After the care team met today, one of the therapists, along with the social worker, came into Garren's room with a big smile on their faces.

"We have a proposition for you."

"Sure. What's up?"

"We'd like to extend Garren's stay, if you would like's entirely up to you."

That has been Nancy's hope for some time. Garren has made some big steps this week, and they really want to keep him a bit longer and work with him as much as they can. So our new discharge date is April 6. While I was looking forward to being home, this is certainly a great thing for Garren. Praise God.

My dad and I went and picked up the van. It's perfect, and the price is too! Thanks David!

Last night Garren was on the vent for 3 hours. Tonight he is officially off the vent. Another huge step. Praise God.

I told you we had a lot of good news! Isn't it exciting to see the pieces of God's plan all working together?

Praise God! That is awesome news! I just want you to know we continue to pray for Garren and your entire family every night. Our 4 year old asked God for Garren to be able to "walk, talk, run and jump" again really soon. From her mouth to God's ears!

Yes! We praise His name along with you. And to think our flesh can drive us crazy with the "what ifs?" when we are in a trial. Trusting is believing God even when there is not one shred of evidence physically to do so. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning!
