Well, this is Michelle...and it's my first time posting! The last post from me was actually typed by my sister since I could only hunt and peck. But look at me now! Typing away with 2 hands! Imagine my sister Angie's surprise when she sees this!!
Just to be clear, Ryan is in Covenant Health Care, Rehab Unit. The rehab unit is NOT located inside the main hospital building...let me know if you need help finding him! Today was his first day in rehab, and Ryan cleaned himself up this morning and was able to get his shirt on with only a little help. He said it took him over an hour, but he did it!
Ryan's cousin drove me down there to see him today and we had a great afternoon together! He looked better than he did when I saw him on Thursday! As we talked about some of things that have been going on this last week, the conversation turned to all the people who have helped us during these last 2 weeks. As I told him just some of the things people have done for us, he looked at me and said, "Isn't it amazing? I'm just Ryan Roman. It must be because of you." He went on to say that even though this is the worst thing we have been through in our lives together, it has also been amazing and wonderful. Although I may not be able to call it amazing and wonderful just yet, I do agree that we have seen our God do some amazing and wonderful things. Top on that list of amazing and wonderful things is all the support we have had from our family and friends, near and far. Ryan told me of visits/calls from friends that have really been a blessing to him. Tonight as I opened cards and read the encouraging words inside, I was amazed again at how God has used our friends to carry us through. Thank you for your words of encouragement, they soothe our soul! Thank you for your visits. they bring us joy! Thank you for your prayers, they strengthen us! We are very grateful for each one of you!
By Christ's strength, we will press on, trusting our God is yet to do even more amazing and wonderful things!!
