FAITH IS BEING SURE OF WHAT WE HOPE FOR AND CERTAIN OF WHAT WE DO NOT SEE. HEBREWS 11:1

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Being confident of this very thing. He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. Phil 1:6 I'm starting the blog with this verse because I have to remind myself that God's not done with Rick yet, and more importantly Rick needs to know that too. This weekend he came home and we didn't do much...he rested a lot. But, each time he needed to go to the bathroom we walked...usually I push him in the wheelchair, but this time he walked and he concentrated on taking quicker steps. Sometimes he takes such slow steps that he's balancing on one foot for too long and of course he loses his balance. Weekend before last, we spent in Lubbock and we took Rick out to Blane Chapmans house. Blane had a project for Rick to work on. He had a hay ring that he needed the legs cut off of. So, he fired up the cutting torch and handed it to Rick and he proceeded to cut the legs and a metal wall out of the hay ring. It was great...he knew exactly what he was doing. After that Blane got the roping dummy out. Rick stood up and with Blane supporting him from behind he swung his rope trying to rope the dummy. I posted a video of it on my FB page. Rick even has a little smile on his face...he's finally proud of something he can do. It was the best day we've had in a long time and Blane is so awesome for making it happen. Other improvements made are that Rick got to get off of 2 of the meds he's been taking for quite awhile. So, that means he only takes 3 meds now plus his baclofen pump...when he first got hurt he was on 15 different meds plus a tube feeding! His left arm and shoulder are showing improvements especially since I specifically asked his OT to concentrate on them more than she was. I'm not sure if we are going to get to go to the Zion Bar B Que on Friday or not. Originally Rick's case manager said he could, but that was when she thought it was his weekend to go home...and it's not, so I'm waiting on a phone call from her to let me know whether or not they'll let him out. Also, our kids are going to be part of the court for the Doan's picnic and Rick is out that weekend, so he should get to come to Vernon with us for Doans...May 7th. Thanks everyone for your continued support. I can't believe how many people our blog has touched and the changes it has helped make in their lives. The music alone is awesome enough and I have to thank and give credit to Ronda Thompson for that! God bless you all! Love, Crystal
