Noah Had A Good Day

The first time since August 23 that he has had a good day (ok, it's probably the first good day since August 22.) When he called today he said he had actually fallen asleep last night for the first time in many weeks and had stayed asleep through the night. He made it through his physical therapy session today without what he called "screaming" pain and he didn't think his one leg and lower back hurt as much today as they did yesterday, so he didn't think he was gimping as much today... although his one knee is still giving him trouble (the pain in his right leg and lower back makes him favor the right side which puts stress on the left knee.) He also got his Army online information straightened out for the first time in almost two years (!) and had access to all his files... It was the first time I didn't detect anger or frustration in the conversation... he actually sounded -- um, encouraged? (maybe just less discouraged?) His phone is back on so I think he's feeling pretty good getting to talk to all his buds... So he said he thought it was a good day. I wanted to remind him that every day might not be as good as today, but not to let it discourage him, but didn't. Yeah, Noah had a good day... so that means I had a good day, too! And hoping for many more of these good days to follow.

That's wonderful to hear. Glad to hear you both had a good day, and hope they will begin to outnumber the not-so-good ones.
I want to thank you for your tremendously moving posts. You have a wonderful way with words and making us feel like we understand. Bless you and your family and thank you for your family's service and sacrifices.

So good to hear that he got a decent night sleep. Hopefully those nights will only get better. I am sure the phone has helped also. Glad is on the road to recovery.

I think a good night's sleep can do wonders for the body's ability to repair itself and for a person to recharge. Hoping Noah's first night of good sleep will be the beginning of a new trend & his continued recovery will be made even faster because of it!

So glad he finally had a night where he slept through. Sleep is restorative and healing.

So glad he had a good day and is doing better. Tell him he has a lot of Mama's out here wishing him the best and we are proud of him.

God Bless our Troops.

I've sat here and read through your entire blog this morning, and to say I ran the roller coaster of emotions is an understatement. From pride, to fear, and finally to a sense of relief, yet still some fear.

My wife and I send our prayers and thoughts to you. Noah will be back to you and the family in no time, you just wait. We're all pulling for him, and for you.

God Bless you, your family, and your son.
