True bliss...

Ya'll are getting two blogs in one day! I forgot to mention the best part of my week! It took place this past Sunday! I went up to the hospital that morning and gave Ben a good shave and shower. Of course he was so relaxed that he slept for about an hour! I try and let him rest as much as possible (not sleep tons though) on Sundays because he has no therapies and needs that day of rest. Later that afternoon there was a movie on and I was on his left side. I asked if I could lay next to him and snuggle with him and he shook his head yes. I then asked Ben to point to the side he wanted me on. Ben pointed to his right side...his stronger side. As I went to go over to his right side Ben totally streched out his arm and I got next to him. When I got comfy Ben totally wrapped his arm around me and pulled me close. Ben has never done this before and my heart was melting. My head was right above his chin so Ben layed his head and chin on my shoulder. He leaned into me more and gave me some kiss noises and puckered his lips! Of course he got lots of kisses! This is the same day when I heard him say I love you the loudest! Breathy and hard to hear yes, but the hardest he has ever tried to get it out!
Oh God thought of me on that day and knew that I needed it alot that day! Ben also knew...he knows my heart just like Jesus does and exactly what I need!
Thank you Ben for your love...I love you with all my heart!!

Wow Katie, what excitement I feel in my bones about the progress you are reporting on Ben... especially the walking and breathy talking. It gives me chills to see the Lord at work in you guys; spiritually, emotionally and physically. He really is the Great Physician!
