The All Clear

I admit for a moment, as I sat there in the hospital room during Noah's EEG, it was depressing that my little boy wasn't doing what all the other little boys were doing the week before starting school.

Were they all out riding bikes, swimming in a pool, playing outside while he was stuck here with all these wires on his head?

But just as quickly as I felt that, I felt such joy and relief that he is doing so well and so far from how horrible things were just 2 1/2 years ago in that very same hospital room.

We've come such a long way. I am so thankful and grateful we are on this side of things now. The mountain has been moved.

Noah has been given the "all clear" and is officially off his special diet. He has been med-free & seizure-free almost 2 years now. We have been looking forward to this momentous occasion for a very long time now.

Philippians 1:6
...He who began a good work in Noah has been faithful to complete it.

For breakfast I offered Noah some cereal with milk. "But Mommy, what does milk taste like?"

So odd to hear from a 5-year-old little boy about such a 'little' normal thing.

I am confident he is healed. I am not fearful.

Yes, I am still jumpy at every little sound he makes and will continue to check on him several times at night... but that is to be expected after where we've been and how far we've come, and I wear it as a battle scar for now.

There is plenty to be grateful for in this house. There is much cause for celebration!

Psalm 139:14
I will praise You,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

    Make him a sloppy PB&J for us, OK?

    Yay for Noah!!

  6. Praise God! What a wonderful testimony you have.

    Hugs and love to you and your precious boy...

  7. that is a wonderful story of faith. I'm so glad he was able to overcome that.

  8. You make me happy cry, girl! Thank you for sharing!

  9. It sounds like you have been through a lot. I'll go and read your links to find out what happened in the past, but for now I am so happy that whatever happened before seems to be in the distance now.

  10. Oh my goodness. I just read his story and what your family has gone through. I cried. I don't think my faith is as strong as yours. You truly are an example to me.

    I am so excited for you and your family!

  11. Wow! What a long road you've come and what a wonderful blessing from God your little Noah is! I agree with stephanie, your faith is an example for me too. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Oh Steph! Praise God! From the very beginning you always believed that God would heal Noah. You never wavered in your faith, and I believe that God has rewarded you for that. What a testimony you have to share with others. Your an inspiration to me and to every one who is lucky enough to meet you. Love you girl!

  14. That is such WONDERFUL news! I am so happy for your whole family, especially Noah.

    Perfect scripture quotes!

  15. What a sweet little guy. Praise God our wonderful creator! You are brave and strong. God bless you guys.

  16. So happy for you and your family. What a wonderful day for you guys! I'm sure even with this good news, you're still relying heavily on faith, which can be hard, but you know He has been with you all the way and will continue to walk right along side you. I wish Noah many blessings and a healthy, healthy life -- he is off to a GREAT start!

  17. My friend's little boy started with seizures after birth, he went on meds, and resolved similar to your sons. Interesting . . . They thought it was r/t something that happened during birth. Any thoughts? Amy

  18. How amazing! That is really wonderful. And he is So adorable!

  19. Yeah for Noah! I read the story of his incredible journey a few months ago (before you enabled non-Blogger comments) and was awed by your faith and strength through many hard times.

    What a testimony!

  20. So wonderful! I'm glad Noah's doing so well! I know the lack of little normal things can be strange... and straining, but the ability to find the blessings in situations that seem anything but is an amazing gift.

  21. That is wonderful news! :D What a cutie he is!

  22. Praise the Lord!!! How wonderful!!!! :) I am so happy for you - and I hope Noah loves milk :)

  23. Praising God for your wonderful news!!

  24. Wonderful news, what a blessing!

  25. WOW - congratulations! That is fabulous news. I am so impressed; it is a huge testament to how important "alternative" remedies are. Allopathic medicine doesn't leave room for exception, but it seems to me that the exception should be allopathic medicine itself!

    A girl after my own heart...GO GET 'EM!! You guys are truly an inspiration.

    p.s. I found your blog through a comment after a vaccination discussion on Mama C-ta's blog - I've been a regular lurker since. Hello!


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
