Did I Hear Him Right?!?!
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
"Did I hear him right or was it just wishful dreaming?" This is what I thought when Carter's Neurosurgeon told us we could come see him again in JUNE when we see all of his other Doctor's!!! Woo Hoo! A Break, a big long break! It is exactly what Brandon and I have been praying for. Sweet Carter needs it, and so do we. I was so happy I could have skipped out of Johns Hopkins Hospital today, and well... maybe I did.
Carter's appointment went great. His incision looks wonderful. I will need to continue to keep it covered for at least another 2 weeks. Carter's walking has dramatically improved. He had just started walking again by himself from his last surgery in March. When he would take a step, he would not bend his knees and his legs looked extremely tight. Since having his cord untethered, he is bending his knees and walking so much better. Carter will need to have another MRI with sedation in about 3 months which we will do at home and send up here. Other than the MRI, Carter SHOULD have no other medical procedures until June. Ecstatic is and understatement!
Thank you all SO much for all of the prayers for not only Carter, but our entire family. Please continue to pray. Pray for Carter's incision to continue to heal and for him to remain infection free. Pray for Carter's legs as they continue to build strength and for his body as it continues to heal. Your prayers, text, messages and phone calls are truly what has gotten us through this year. We would not be where we are today without them. Thank you! As always... To God be the Glory!!!
One of Carter's favorite things to do while in Baltimore is ride around the Inner Harbor in his stroller and look at everything. Yesterday, we took him for a stroll, and he loved every minute of it!
