Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/24/17

Great day for Ryan today. He’s seemingly back to normal. No O2 supplement, temp normal and pulse rates normal. He even started laughing again. Praise God!

Now, we can once again focus solely on praying for his complete healing…oh, and that he never gets sick again. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Yesterday, I read an article about Victoria Arlen of Dancing with the Stars; a gal who was in a vegetative state for nearly four years…then recovered. During her account of her ordeal, one line stood out and sent chills up my spine. It was as follows:

“The lights when out,” Arlen said. “I was trapped inside my body, unable to move, talk and function … I had to prepare for the possibility of dying.”

I just can’t comprehend going through anything like this, and hope Ryan knows God’s got him in the palm of His hand, and that we all are storming the gates of heaven on his behalf.

Ryan, We love you. We are praying for you. We are pleading with God that He will grant you peace and comfort and ultimate healing; that He will be by your side throughout this journey you’re on. I hope the reason for your laughter is because God told you a joke…or maybe it’s just you think your dad is funny looking. Whatever the case, I/we want you to be happy. And, we want you back even better than before you got injured. We miss you dearly. Please come back to us…
