DAY 183 & 184

Rick woke up a little nauseated this morning and threw up a little bit before therapy. He has seemed fine ever since and has eaten good all day. He got agitated 3 times today...agitation is part of the healing process, but it is hard to watch him get so mad. First with Amanda, she was checking the tone in his left arm and she jerked it really hard. He grabbed both her hands and got a hold of her. He wouldn't let go and had her locked in his sights. Then he started trying to talk or I guess I should say cuss her out. We couldn't exactly make out what he was saying, but it would probably all have to be bleeped out! He did it again to Chel'C and then the Jeannie in ST. He wouldn't even let Jeannie touch him. All the nurses and therapists said it was great to see a response out of him and Jeannie was just tickled that she heard his voice. They also backed off his baclofen pump again today, which I am really grateful for. He's just been too loose and seemed very sluggish lately.

Thanks again for all your prayers and support. We are so blessed to have such great friends and family. I hope God gives each of you a special blessing for being such a huge blessing to us. I thank God for getting us through another day and for giving me the strength I need to manage.

  1. Crystal,
    Praise the Lord, when he gets well we can work on his vernacular. Hopefully some of those things will work themselves out when he gets in better mental condition and more stable. Let's pray and agree, Father in heaven we come before you with praise and thanksgiving. Father we thank you for everything you have done for Rick and Crystal and Father we thank you for all the things to come. Father we pray for Rick's mental stability, Father we pray for mental strength and a re-newing of his mind. Father we thank you for a supernatural miracle and a complete restoration of body, mind, and spirit. Lord we thank you for the birth of our Saviour, our redeemer, and the fact that our redeemer lives. That he enables us to come before you and makes provision and intercession for us. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen and Amen
    God Bless America+-+-+later, Rick
    Merry Christmas
