Yay James!

James had his re-evaluation for physical therapy a couple weeks ago.  The assessment:

James is an 11 month old who is currently functionaing at 11 months for gross motor skills and 12.5 months for fine motor skills...  He presents with a significatn medical history which includes an abnormal MRI, as well as whole body cooling and seizures. 

Reading the first part of that is so much more amazing since it's followed by the second part!

Praise God!

Bonnie,

There's a newborn by the name of Frederick who is gravely ill. I don't know the details, but I know the doctors are going to be doing another evaluation in another day or two, and that the situation apparently looks pretty hopeless. His grandmother is a friend of mine and this is her first grandchild. I'd like to ask you and your readers to pray for Frederick and his family. Maybe Bishop Sheen could intercede once again.

Absolutely and postiively miraculous and amazing. I still remember weeping and grieving with you those first hours of James' life. How little faith I had!!! Glory to God for his full recovery!

Praise be to God for the miraculous healing of James. Tears came to my eyes reading this today, Bonnie. Hallelujah Hallelujah, our God is so good.

That is awesome and amazing news!!! I was a NICU nurse back in Chicago in my former life (before having my little ones:) and I followed James' story the whole way through (and prayed every day for him). I'm so happy to hear how well he is doing and for the witness he (unknowingly) gives to others of the power of God. You are all so blessed and we are all so blessed to have witnessed this miracle!
