Praising God!!! Thank you for praying!!!

I just heard from Matt in Cairns. Matthew started to make a rapid recovery about an hour ago, and has regained much of his memory. The CT scan did not reveal any bleeding, Praise God. He was diagnosed with a severe concussion and will be observed overnight. We believe that he had an undiagnosed head injury after his last fall in May that caused this relatively small fall to result in major damage. Looking back I can see that there were signs, but his body was in such a mess it went overlooked. If things continue to improve he will be discharged tomorrow and will be home on Friday. I have no doubt that it was the prayers of thousands around the globe that has turned this nightmare around. Thank you, God. Thank you friends. Thank you prayer warriors. Matt will update when he gets a chance.

- again, from Matthew's mom (Matt is the dad). Matthew had a really bad fall in May, which is why in her previous post she said something about how much can one little boy handle. We love this family. They have three boys around Isaac's age, which was nice of them. :) Matthew is the closest in age, the oldest. Isaac was so sad and scared last night, he'll be thrilled to hear this good news when he wakes up! He'll also be thrilled to hear Matthew is coming back on Friday already, Lord willing! He kept asking (1) if he'd be okay, and (2) how soon he could come back. (They had a sleep-over "scheduled" for Thursday night - it's a two-week school break here.)

I've posted pictures in the past of the boys burying each other in our sandbox. :) I can't get ahold of Matthew's mom right now for permission to post a photo with identifying names; maybe later. I hope she's sleeping! 

Love and unspeakable gratitude to our Great Physician and you all who prayed!,
