I wanted to update those of you who continue to ask about Merritt’s leg. We so appreciate your continued prayers! The calcium bump on the side of his leg continues to grow, which is a continued indication that the bone is growing together inside. When we went to the doctor a few weeks ago, the x-ray showed it all healing beautifully, except for a little portion on the front of the bone. You can pray that fills in. Because when the leg is done growing, the rather painful bump will finally start shrinking again.
It has been amazing to watch from a front-row seat how God designed the body to heal itself. Though Merritt isn’t quite back up to speed yet, he is doing well considering the accident was just eight months ago. There are still days the muscles hurt, some days he hobbles a bit, and I’ll be able to outrun him for a while. But he can lift rocks, pour concrete, drive the tractor, and walk beside me, holding my hand… And for every step we take together, we are so thankful.
