3 months and 3 days later

I suddenly realized today, it has been three months and three days. Life changed in the blink of an eye and for the better in our case.

Three months and four days ago, we were weary and clinging to the promise of God that things were going to change. We were doing five dialysis treatments a day and Marty still was fluid overloaded. His blood sugars were running between 250-400. His last hemoglobin A1C was 11. He wasn't sleeping and barely getting out of bed. We were spending our days crying out for mercy.

Three months later, our days are filled with joy. Every minute that he is well, is a precious gift to us. We are constantly rejoicing and thanking God. Marty is back to working full time and plus some. He says he comes home and is tired but not the same tired. He says being back to work helps him see the difference. His blood sugar is between 89-110 every day. His A1C is 5.2, non diabetic levels. He is not taking insulin anymore and hasn't for two weeks.

Hard to believe that life changed in a instant and how fast things turned around for the better. We are so thankful for the prayers and support we have received. We are thankful to God for blessing our family with a miracle.

" Someday, somehow you'll see. Would you dare, would you dare to believe that you still have a reason to sing. Cause the pain that you've been feeling can't compare to the joy thats coming." Josh Wilson

 Believe me, nothing prepared us for the joy that has come!
