I recently shared with someone, "It's just hard to see your child in pain" and they said to me, "Is he in pain?" which made me stop and think about it.... and actually, it doesn't appear that Edmond is in pain, neither seizures nor spasms indicate pain, perhaps some uncomfortableness at most. I suppose it's hard to see your child not be healthy and strong as you had imagined they would be, but I am very thankful that he is not in pain. It's interesting the things you learn to be thankful for and the expectations that become frivolous when you are simply thankful that your child is still breathing day to day. That your child is able to eat, I never thought I'd be thanking God for that one.
I also wanted to share that Adonis was recently encouraged by the testimony of Tim Tebo, I Wikipedia'd it his personal life and it says,
"Tebow was born in Makati City in the Philippines, to American parents who were serving as Baptist missionaries at the time. His mother, Pamela Elaine (née Pemberton), is the daughter of a U.S. Army colonel, and his father, Robert Ramsey Tebow II, is a pastor. While pregnant, his mother suffered a life-threatening infection with a pathogenic amoeba. Because of the drugs used to rouse her from a coma and to treat her dysentery, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. Doctors had expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion, even though illegal in the Phillipines, to protect her life, but she decided not to have one.
Tebow is the youngest of five children. All of the Tebow children were homeschooled by their mother, who worked to instill the family's Christian beliefs along the way."
UM!!! Dont you love how the MIRACLE of his birth is just passed over so lightly like it's no big deal that a pregnant woman who was in a coma was revived and that a placenta abrupted baby was born ALIVE!!! Not to mention healthy, not to mention an NFL pro. Wow. I'd say that is something miraculous, THank God for the faith to trust God and have that baby, thank God for these testimonies that we can continue to cling to, not just in Bible days, but in today's world. Please keep Adonis and I in your prayers we are constantly battling our emotions, especially for me as a mother it can feel impossible at times to make it through each day. I am so thankful for my husband's strength and stability. Last night Adonis prayed that even though science is stacked against us, God is mighty to save and to show His power over all of this.
