Wow! Five Months, 20 days later, R.J. is home! He has a long journey ahead of him, but he is doing well. What a miracle! Actually, it seems more like multiple miracles. He will be living with his father in Lawton, OK. He will be repeating 3rd grade but he will be back in the same school and he seems to be excited about that part.

Thank you seems so inadequate to those of you who prayed for my grandson. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I know the throne was bombarded for R.J. and God answered. He is such a miracle.

Please continue to pray for him. The trial for the man who did this is coming up next month. It is going to be a very hard time. Please pray for us all through this time ahead.

At some time I will post before and after pictures so you can actually see the miracles you were a part of.

Again, we thank you so much for your prayers.

Malachi and Madison start school!

Well, that was another one of those firsts, that cause both joy and pain. Of course you all know that I sure was missing Philip. I imagined what he would be doing and saying as he took them for their first day. He would be funny and I would be taking pictures until he finally said, "enough Mom", let them go to school. After we left I would then drive him crazy with my memories of his first day, but he would listen and maybe even remember some of them and laugh with me.

I had that all in my heart as I took plenty of pictures and held them and kissed them while their Mom finished all the paper work. They cooperated with my picture taking wonderfully. Madison was sitting on my lap and she saw my eyes a "little" watery and she said, "you're gonna cry ain't you MeMe". I think I did very well.

For right now Madison likes school for the most part. Malachi says the best part of the day is the bus and the worst part is school! They are so cuuuute.

I thought I would share the pictures from the big day.

Rocky Arrested, Finally!

For all you who have been wondering....they finally arrested the guy who hurt R.J. He was arrested on the 21st of August. He was charged with "felony child abuse with injury.
He has a $75,000.00 bond so as far as we know he is still in jail. The trial is set for October.

R.J. is doing pretty well. He is at the rehab center. He still is under a lot of pain meds and he still can't have a feeding tube yet. It is 5 months today since he was admitted to the hospital.

There have been a lot of miracles in the last five months. He still has a long way to go. We have not got to see him since Father's Day week-end. We are praying that we will get to go soon.

Thank you so much for your prayers and anytime we cross your mind please pray some more.
