Dear prayer partners, it has been long overdue that I update you on how my husband is doing. I thank each of you for your prayers and pray that God blesses you for your faithfulness. It has been 10 1/2 months since my husband was discharged from the hospital. This is HUGE because it is the longest he has gone without having to be hospitalized in over 3 years. He was averaging a trip to the hospital every 3 months, and his stays were anywhere from a week to almost a month.
His Crohn’s is in remission, PRAISE God! His legs are healing, PRAISE God! He is weaning off the Prednisone and pain meds, PRAISE God! These are HUGE victories!! He has had a setback, his is having problems with a compressed nerve root in his L5, but is scheduled for a procedure tomorrow. Due to this recent setback he has not been very mobile resulting in a large weight gain, which has also created some breathing problems and fluid retention. I am NOT discouraged with this because I know that God is in control. He is in the midst of all of this. That is not to say that it’s all sunshine and lollipops, I would be lying if I said we are struggling with this but then we stop, breathe, pray, and realize that God has brought him so far and He is not done yet.
I ask that you continue to pray for Jose. That one day very soon he is able to wake up without bandages on his legs, able to take a deep cleansing breath, able to walk without struggling, has been able to come off a lot of the meds he is on, and that he can be more involved with our beautiful grandbabies.
Again, thank you, bless you, and may God richly reward your faithfulness.
