Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
Dr. Park's office in St. Louis called Seth's mom last Friday. It seems that Dr. Park had spent most of the day reviewing Seth's medical records, MRI's, x-rays, therapy videos, etc. In looking through his records, Dr. Park has found that the extent of damage to Seth's brain is NOT all that bad. Yes, he has Cerebral Palsy, but the damage is less than that of about 90% of the patients that Dr. Park usually treats. (It's amazing to me how the human brain functions. I mean, some people have major trauma to the brain and they heal and recover normally, while others sustain a tiny little injury and it changes their lives forever.)
Anyway...this is the BEST PART:
The doctor feels that Seth should be WALKING within four months after his surgery!!
And yes, we sat at Jiu Jitsu and laughed and smiled like idiots as she shared this news. It's so exciting to think that sometime in the next several months this little boy will be up on his own two feet and playing like any other kid. God is so good.
Now we just have to get Seth to St. Louis!
Which means...that the fundraiser is vitally important!! Please go check out Scootin' For Seth, and make plans to stop by on July 25. There will be something for literally everyone! Darling Daughter has been selling raffle tickets like crazy...I think she sold her first hundred in less than four hours. But there are PLENTY more. If you want to help make a difference in this sweet little fellow's life, please get in touch with me. If you live nearby, I will BRING you some tickets.
And now on to this angelic face:
Landen will undergo HIS operation on Monday morning. His family seems more at peace with things this week, and they're so thankful for all of your prayers! They'll be leaving on Thursday afternoon to get out of town for a few days and just be together as a family. (So, Thursday will be the last time DD and I get our hands on this precious baby before he has his surgery!)
Please remember this darling face and pray for Landen this week.
Thanks for your support in sharing Landen's story and his button! I've been meaning to give credit to Tonggu Momma for creating the button for me! I have no clue how to do it myself, but she's good like that.
And I don't know what those sentences are yellow...but oh well.
