Calling all prayer warriors

I will make this quick and to the point. Derrick needs your prayers. He needs specifically to pray for restoration of his cells, his muscles. Peace in his mind.

Most of you know the Dr's believe that Derrick had a stroke on Saturday night. He was air lifted via helicopter to Harborview Medical Center. He was in a coma for about two days. He slowly came out of the coma - actually it was rather quick seemed like forever though.

His right side is fine, strong as an ox. His left side is very weak. He can move his arm fully, however it is very weak so it is extremely difficult for him to do. His leg , well it is still not quite cooperating. He can wiggle his toes and move his foot about a 1/2 an inch. He for the first time moved his knee today. Again very weak and tough to do. they got him standing - with assistance. In no way did he just stand up, they helped him and he put some pressure on his leg.

Keep in your prayers. We need strength.

We know that he has already been healed through Jesus Christ, and now we are just walking this out. The road is hard, and we are keeping faith. Reality is though he can't get up and walk and that is a tough reality no matter your faith. My faith is not the size of the mustard seed right now, it is the size of my bedroom. I have already told the mountain to move, and it has moved! Derrick is alive, he is talking, he has his sense of humor!!!! He will walk and run again.

There are so many things I can write about right now so many things big small and weird that have happened at the hospital know this -- God is in control- God did not decide sat at 8:45 to strike Derrick down - it just happened. However it happened and all things work out for the glory and the good of God!!

I'll tell you all more later - - but I am tired and do not know why I am blogging in the first place - I can't sleep so here I am! Crazy lady that I am....
