An Update!

I thought I would let everyone know how Bekah and our nephew are doing!

Bekah is doing well and went back to school yesterday. She is on limited activity, no gym and no outside recess for a week. She hasn't had a headache or stomach act since Monday. Last night she had her very first piano recital! I have to see if my pictures turned out and I'll post a few later.

Eric is doing better as well. He is out of ICU and PRAISE GOD - headed for "Teen Challenge"! For those of you who don't know what that is, it is a very intensive drug rehab program. They came to our church years ago and give their testimonies (the patients). A bunch of us have wanted his parents to check on it for a while now, and they finally did! At first it seemed impossible because of it being $900 a month. I told Steve's sister their has to be away, all those other people could not afford that cost either. Well you know our God is bigger then anything we could think or imagine right! Steve went to see Eric last night and his mom told Steve that Eric was heading for "Teen Challenge"! WOOT WOOT! Thank you Lord! I don't know when he'll be going, but he will not be able to have any contact with anyone for 6 months, then just immediate family until 8 months! We pray that God will use this time to show Eric how precious he is in God's eyes!

Thanks for your prayers for both of these kids! I appreciate them so much! You guys ROCK!!!

Praise God for all this good news!!! I'm so glad to hear that Bekah is doing so much better! I'm also very thankful that your nephew was spared and that things seem to be moving in a better direction for him right now. God is in control and He will be working through all of this!

Wow, It sounds like a similar situation we were in a couple of years ago. Yes prayers and a lot of them are needed. I'm sure that with God's hand on Eric's shoulder he will be better soon. God will lead him in the direction that is right....Prayers to you and yours. I'll remember Eric and all his family in my prayers. Kae
