Saturday was long and hard for Robbie and especially for us. We are trying to pull back on some of the meds that make him sleepy so he can be more awake for therapy. It ended up making for a really long afternoon of lots of spasms, pain and discomfort. It is hard to see his improvements be so small that you wonder if you are making it up The improvements are also so far from where we desire for them to be.
PLEASE PRAY THAT ROBBIE IMPROVES IN SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO ENCOURAGE HIM (AND US). ...and, of course, please join us in continuing to pray for complete and quick healing. Also, pray for strength and stamina for Tanja and I. We praise the Father for continued health through this time and ask that He continue to grant us the ability to be there for our son. We are also so thankful to the many family and friends who are coming to help us and give us breaks, especially Tanja’s parents who are taking the night shift 5 or 6 days each week. Please also pray for our girls who have no spent a month without us.
Many of you have shared many scriptures with us which is always a blessing. One friend shared this and it has really spoken to me. For those of you praying for Robbie, I’d like for you to meditate on this and pray over it for Robbie:
1 Peter 4:1-2 - So, since Christ suffered in the flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same attitude, because the one who has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin, in that he spends the rest of his time on earth concerned about the will of God and not human desires.
What a blessing that God may be using this time of suffering to set Robbie up for a life of amazing purity and focus on God’s will. We pray this is so - that what Satan intends for evil, God will turn to good. God bless you all and thank you for your perseverance in prayer for our son.
Ken and Tanja
