WOW! One year ago today, Dana and I were in our car headed to Nairobi Hospital's Emergency Room, Dana was paralyzed from the middle of her chest down. The first picture below is a picture I took in her hospital room the day before she went under emergency surgery to remove tumors in her spinal column that had totally blocked her spinal cord. The spinal cord had been totally compressed for more than 4 days before the surgery could be attempted.
This picture was taken today the 28th of June. Here is Dana walking outside and playing disc golf here in our yard at the Baby Centre.
The emotions have been all over the place this week, recounting what took place a year ago. We have been and continue to be so thankful for the divine touch to Dana's body. We know that God was with us throughout, He never left our side. We felt His presence even in the hours of the unknown ahead. We didn't know at any stage if this would be it, or would she continue to recover more and more? God has touched her body in a mighty way!! And we are so thankful for all of the wonderful care that she received everywhere she went. Many said along the way, that she would not recover, but Jesus is the only one who gets to decide that. We are grateful for every day that we have, none of us are guaranteed tomorrow.
We will be back in the States in July for Dana's bi-annual check-up. We are believing that God is not done yet, He continues to touch and heal her body each day.
Thank you so very much to all that have prayed for Dana and the rest of the family. It is great to see her walk into a room of people that had been praying for her, and to see their faces, for they truly have seen a modern day miracle of God.
Blessings, and much more to come!
