Making Progress...

James is making good prgress after his spinal surgery Wednesday. He sitting up in a chair watching his alma mater get pummeled. Luckily for him, he is on some major pain medication, so he isn't feeling the pain of watching his team lose...badly.

He has a long way to go still. He will be wearing a brace for about 3 months that makes him look like some sort of paratrooper. I will have to sneak a picture of him with his brace on for posterity. Thankfully, the doctors that operated on him are first rate...doctors and human beings. They have come in on their days off just to check on James. The compassion they show for James and our family is simply amazing to us. Thank you, Dr. White and Dr. Bolt!

What has blessed us more than anything is the help and prayers from family and friends. James' siblings have all come rushing to help without ever being asked. They just came, saw what was needed, and jumped right in. My side of the family has taken over the care of our daughter, Miss Scarlett, which is a major concern to us. And our friends...they sat with me during his surgery and have prayed for us and/or called daily. Friends that live too far away to be here continually lifted our family up in prayer. We could not have better family and friends.

The biggest news is that the feeling is coming back into James' legs! We were not sure that it would ever come back. We are hopeful that he will have a full and complete recovery. Now if only his alma mater could have a full recovery of its ailing season...
