201. Humor

Bryson has to give a "How to" demonstration in English class... Guess what he is Demonstrating. HOW TO wrap his arm. He told the class that the blood Zone will be the first row of chairs! Crazy kid. He has to change out his graft dressing every night - and has learned to do it by himself. Talented!
202. Beautiful Weather - Such a perfect day today. Spend time outside in the yard - wish everyday could be like today!

The Graft.....

Published with Blogger-droid v2.0.4

Our Heavenly Father loves His children. He has blessed each with physical and spiritual gifts. Let me speak of each type. When you sing “I Am a Child of God,” think of His gift to you of your own physical body. The many amazing attributes of your body attest to your own “divine nature.”

Each organ of your body is a wondrous gift from God. Each eye has an auto focusing lens. Nerves and muscles control two eyes to make a single three-dimensional image. The eyes are connected to the brain, which records the sights seen.

Your heart is an incredible pump. It has four delicate valves that control the direction of blood flow. These valves open and close more than 100,000 times a day—36 million times a year. Yet, unless altered by disease, they are able to withstand such stress almost indefinitely.

Think of the body’s defense system. To protect it from harm, it perceives pain. In response to infection, it generates antibodies. The skin provides protection. It warns against injury that excessive heat or cold might cause.

The body renews its own outdated cells and regulates the levels of its own vital ingredients. The body heals its cuts, bruises, and broken bones. Its capacity for reproduction is another sacred gift from God.

Be we reminded that a perfect body is not required to achieve one’s divine destiny. In fact, some of the sweetest spirits are housed in frail or imperfect bodies. Great spiritual strength is often developed by people with physical challenges, precisely because they are so challenged.

Anyone who studies the workings of the human body has surely “seen God moving in his majesty and power.” Because the body is governed by divine law, any healing comes by obedience to the law upon which that blessing is predicated.

193. Our bodies - they truly are a Gift from God!

Bryson had follow up appointments back on March 30th with both his Plastic and Orthopedic surgeons. Both Doctors were pleased with his progress. The grafts seems to be taking well - we just need to be watching for signs of infection. We also got good news where the bone is missing - the Dr. saw signs of new growth activity in the area of bone loss. He's not for sure but it looked promising! Our bodies are miraculous! Truly a gift from God - designed so well and perfect for what we need to enjoy and endure our journey here on earth!

194. ALL our friends - you are all so amazing for the kind acts of service performed for us! I could not even begin to mention them all - there are so many - just please know how thankful we are for all of you!

195. Conference

196. The Leaders of our Church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - they seemed to know exactly what I needed to hear during conference!

197. Morgan - praying for a miracle for her. She goes back to the Dr. on May 7th for another MRI and they want her to meet with the oncology team - Please pray and fast for her Please!

198. My Savior - Easter - His Birth, His life, His Sacrifice for me, His willingness to suffer for me, That He understands what I am going through personally,His Example, His Death, His Resurrection and that someday He will return!!!!

199. Blessings - It's amazing how looking for blessings from our Heavenly Father can lift you - your whole outlook on life can be different - It's wonderful when you look for them. The problem is that sometimes life can be so stressful that you seem to forget to look - at least that is what happens to me. I just need to remember to look daily for them - life is great, I am so blessed and when I remember to look for those blessings and acknowledge where they come from - life is easier even when it is hard!

192. A clean sink

Life has seemed so crazy and busy since we returned home. I think today was the very first time in quite a while that I have not one single dish or spoon in my sink.  So thankful! It's my little miricle of the day!
