Isn't life sweet?

Amber is Wonder Woman. Read my latest update here.

Amber is no longer our Sleeping Beauty...

I hope she doesn't mind me saying, but she is now more akin to Wonder Woman!

Seriously, what an amazing woman! She is up and walking, virtually all by herself. No kidding. Still a tiny bit shaky, but she is doing it on her own! She climbed up and down three flights of stairs today. She is just charging forward taking every opportunity to get stronger, so that she can get home. It's incredible. This is truly a miracle.

Her voice is getting much stronger, and tomorrow the full tracheostomy will be removed! Hallelujah! She is more than a little excited about that. She has become a professional annunciator, but she is gladly giving up this newfound talent so she doesn't have to rely on our woefully lacking lip-reading skills.

Life is good. God is good. Amber is healing. We have witnessed a miracle. There is no doubt about that. Thank you for your faith and for joining your prayers with ours and calling down the healing powers of heaven. The strength we felt as we all united in prayer and fasting will not be soon forgotten. We have been reminded that our Father in Heaven hears every one of our prayers. He loves us and wants to bless our lives. Let us not forget to give thanks. We are eternally grateful that He saw fit to grant us the blessing of Amber's full recovery. She's well on her way there, sprinting actually. Just itching to get home. Home to that beautiful family of hers. Isn't life sweet?
