It’s past a year now since you prayed her well.
and she is amazing.
Thank you Jesus!
From that accident, a year ago, with fractured skull – there was hearing loss on left side.
A year later, a new doctor tells us he maybe able to reconnect hearing bones and all should go well.
However . . . there is a tiny, ever so tiny chance he could brush nerves that control the face. . . and then facial paralyses could set in once again.
My teeth clinch, and I feel them shift.
He assures us he’ll stop if he feels he’s to close
and so she trusts and wants to move forward with this operation.
There was another accident two months ago.
She was stopped at a light. . . and that was all she can remember. This time, nothing was hurt a Fisherman dad with magic hands, and dedication to his girl couldn’t fix.
and we blew out a whole breath
The next day this girl and I sat down to talk about what had happened . . . she was frightened because she didn’t know. No more driving we said . . . until we check this out.
more doctors were added and more tests were done – the results Absence Seizures.
We thank God only cars were hurt and doctors are on it.
and once again we focus on the good.
Because really. . . what else is there?
Time and time again we hear just how amazing she’s doing. . . and we rejoice.
With her daddy as her morning chauffeur – today she started school again – out the door 6:45 sharp . . . and she’s excited for this life.
