A week of ups and downs

This week has been a really tough one! We are all trying to be brave with the holidays here and we seem to be being tested again. While Josh was in McKay Dee they put a filter in his vein to stop any bloodclots from getting to his heart. Well this week they had to go and retrieve it, what an adventure! They went down the main vein of Josh's neck to retrieve it. Of course most people get put under for this procedure but not Josh, he does not want to get put out again. He hates the way that the medicine makes him feel. Well he was in pain for a few days, but doing well now.
On Tuesday Josh was put back FLAT ON HIS BACK, we know can you believe it???? We are sure that it is the best thing to do though. We just can't seem to get this small opening from the flap surgery healed; which is what is keeping us from getting up for therapy. The real reason that we came to Craig Hospital for. Oh my we are starting to think if we are ever going to get home. Not really though, we know that Heavenly Father has a plan for Josh and our family. We see his hand touch our lives each day. Each day we continue to try to submit ourselves to His willl. This is challenging but we know that it is exactly what we need to do. Our testimonies continue to grow and be strengthened by the knowledge of the gospel. It is through faith and knowledge that Jesus is the Christ and He know each one of us personally, cares for us, and has an individual plan for all of us. Our family is blessed by each one of your prayers, fasting, and love for us. Please continue them because we are leaning on you. Thank you for sharing your love with us.
