And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Nate Update

from his Daddy: 8:27pm Dec 10
Nate had a good weekend for the most part. There were some times where all he wanted to do was sleep, but there were some other times that he got up and had a good time. Santa came on Friday night and so Saturday morning was eventful...he said he wanted to make an early visit this year and would be back with some other surprises on Christmas morning. One of the things he brought was the new Wii U console along with several games which peaked Nate's interest and gave him something to strive to stay awake for so he could play with his brothers. On Sunday, the elders from the church had a special prayer over Nate and then others from the church gathered around Nate...he seemed to have a little bit better day on Sunday afternoon. Finally, today was much different. He had to go back to the hospital for some blood tests and a follow up. He has been weaned down on his main steroid over the weekend so we could get a better assessment of his condition. Well, when we left the hospital, we got some lunch and headed home. When his brothers got home, it was like a burst of energy hit him and he played a long time with them and was very animated. He also slowly started walking on his own again and in general seemed to have a great afternoon and evening. His teacher came over to see him and brought cards and artwork from his classmates and I think that helped his spirits a lot also. So all in all, I would say he is making good progress, especially since he has been weaned some off the steroids and we still see good things happening. We have a lot to be thankful for and give thanks to God and want to thank all of you all out there for your prayers, thoughts, and well wishes.
