Hello friends,
     Well, we got Micah settled back into Ranken and he looked so relieved to be there.  I can't say yet that we have seen much difference in him yet.  He is on his pain meds still and they make him pretty sleepy, but he is definitely looking much more relaxed.  I was only with him a short while yesterday as the wind and temps here were pretty bad and I couldn't stay out long.  
     The Dr. has started weaning him off of his other meds, one will be gone tomorrow and the will take them away one at a time so that he will be very "clean" as the Dr. said.   Sounds simple doesn't it.  I was just thinking that it is also that simple with our Great Physician.  We can take any problem to Him and say "Lord, I've done this", "Lord, I can't do this", "Lord, (fill in the blank)" and He will answer.  

 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
    I John 1:9

     We may not always get the answer we want and we may have to wait at times, but when it comes to forgiving our sin, there is no waiting!  Instantly done, instantly His.  Never think that your sins are too bad to be forgiven.  
     The therapists started him right back into the therapy routine like he had never left.  All the nurses and aids were coming to "check out" their boy as soon as he got there, it was like a homecoming for him.  They are really good to him there, I can't count how many times I've seen them hug/kiss/"I love you" Micah.  
     The rest of us are doing okay.  We put up a Christmas tree the other day and spent a couple of evenings stringing popcorn and cranberries.  A good time was had by all.  The little people have been making snowflakes and hanging them in the windows.  Thomas' parents and a brother & his family got into the states yesterday and are currently in PA with a sister.  
     I am going to see Micah now and will try to get on later and let you know how that visit goes.  Know you are loved  and once again thank you for your prayers.
