Dear Lord, as Easter dawns over this Texas city, I have so many blessings to thank you for. Thank you for bringing us to TCH, that Eric is slowly improving, healing. Thank you that we're out of ICU. Thank you that the leaks in his lungs have closed, the holes healed, the chest tubes removed. Thank you that the nutrition he's receiving is nourishing and building up his body, strengthening Eric. Thank you that, if not quite sleeping, Eric is resting comfortably right now. Thank you for the doctors and nurses who are working so hard to help Eric get well. Thank you that Eric is able to somewhat maintain his sense of humor, his smile, his laugh, despite all he's been through. Thank you that Andrew and Mom are able to visit us this week. Thank you for the good days, and for helping us through the rough ones.
I ask you, Lord, for continued healing and strengthening for Eric, for protection from all the dangers within a hospital. Guard Eric from germs, infections, careless mistakes. Safeguard his mind by warding off depression, anxiety, and all things negative. Lord, assign an angel to sit here with us, to watch over Eric every minute until we walk out these doors and drive our son home.
In Jesus name, Amen
