"I Love You MeMe" Sweetest words I ever heard

Well, praise God! After asking prayer Sunday at church, and sending out the emails about R.J. not speaking, I was really concerned about what was going on with him. Around 11pm Monday night we got a phone call. Rusty (R.J.'s) dad called to say that he was leaning over R.J. and said, "I know you can talk R.J. I just want to hear you say I love you, daddy." Without further hesitation R.J. said "I love you daddy"!

Praise God!

Rusty was so excited when he called and told us, we had only a moment, but he put the phone to R.J.'s mouth and I heard the most precious words....."I love you MeMe". It don't get any better than that. I didn't know if I would ever hear that or anything else from my precious grandson again. Poppa missed out on getting to talk because that was all the talking for the night. However, he has since spoken to R.J. and got to hear precious words and had a little bit of a conversation.

Look what happens when God's people pray. Jimmy and I can never thank you enough for your prayers and support.

Please don't stop praying. He is not "out of the woods", yet. After all that excitement Monday night, we got a call Tuesday morning that he was spitting up blood. He now appears to have a bleeding ulcer. They also found a pocket of fluid but can't figure out where it originated so they added another drain.

This has truly been a roller coaster experience but thrilling to watch all the miracles time and time again.

We have no clue what tomorrow holds but we do know who holds tomorrow.

Please keep praying.
