good reports...

Thank you all for your prayers! It was a long 24 hours but we made it though!
Ben was quite confused and agitated up until about 8:30 last night. One minute he would ask for snuggles and the next be kicking me away from him! He would just stare and then the next moment beat the padding on his bed. He would want food and then not, want a drink and then shove it away! Ben also had a temprature which probably didn't help. He started calming down and falling asleep!
I took off after 9pm and headed to my room! The nurses here were super nice so I felt like I could leave and Ben would be in good hands!
I was anxious to get to Ben today and see how he was doing! When I got there he was getting some meds! I said hello and he responded, "HI, how are you?" Right back to his old self! I felt so relieved! I asked him if he had a good sleep and was feeling better and he said yes!! Praise the Lord! I am sure he was just exausted after the prior events and all the meds!
I asked Ben if he remembered anything from the day before and he said no. I told him what had happened and he responded, "oh, that is bad!" I asked him if he remembered anything else and he said, "I fell!" Yes, Ben you did fall but that is ok! Ben said, "no it is not!" I asked him why and he said, "I am too strong for that!"
We waited until after lunch today to see a doc but he had good reports so it was okay!! Ben was SEIZURE FREE all night long! Whoohoo praise Jesus! He is going to hold Ben over one more night just to monitor him! I am okay with this too...rather be safe then sorry! Ben actually tried to get up today and wanted to do therapies! He said, "I am ready to get out of here!"
Thank you again for all of your prayers for both Ben and I! They were/are needed and much appreciated! I will keep you updated as to when we get out of this hospital and back to Kessler!

Thank you so much for filling us in!
I have been praying.
It is beautiful to watch God move.
And both you and Ben are beautiful to watch.
Thanks for always sharing.

I just found your blog via nothing but blue sky... and I have sat here reading about your story for the past hour while at work on a night shift (I'm an ICU nurse). I have teared up at several moments... but more than anything I have been deeply encouraged and moved by your commitment to live out a God honouring marriage. Your realness and love for your husband... and his love for you is awesome! Thank you for the very real reminders of how we as wives need to honour our husbands... You are an incredible wife and woman after God's own heart. Thank you for writing. I am praying for some of God's richest blessings on you both and your marriage this Christmas and for the year to come. Much love in Him, --Amber

Praise Jesus! Blessed are you, O LORD, who has answered our prayers. Blessed are you who is in control of all things. Blessed are you who sustains Ben and Katie with your mighty hand. Blessed are you, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Heal Ben, O LORD, and he will be healed; save him and he will be saved, for you are the one he praises! All glory, honor and praise to your name.

We will keep praying! Have a blessed day!

With love in Christ,
