Real Moments- Ezekiel is Home!
I am thankful for the Lord's tender Mercy! My boy is home!!
Almost as soon as Ezekiel was buckled in his seat belt, his smile returned and his everyday sparkle glistened in his eyes! There is no place like home! It feels so good to be here with our family complete! Ezekiel slept well through the night. His humor is back to normally. Making jokes about being "nuts" since he has pins in his hips now. He has also been joking with his siblings about "taking his legs off" as he removes the leg rests on his wheelchair. It feels good to be home! This morning Ezekiel wanted to do something to help the family so we set up a work station for him to be able to make his "famous pancakes". He was pretty impressed with himself and said, "Oh ya! The worlds best pancakes from a wheelchair." I guess the wheelchair adds some flavor to them I wasn't aware of? ;-)
Thank you to everyone who sent notes of encouragement, the many prayers, children who told their parents they wanted to come and do Ezekiel's chores, friends who sent jokes via text message, others who offered to drive over to us and bring a meal. Words can not express the love we felt and the thanks we gave for each of you! The body of Christ was amazing in how they immediately went to work making sure we were okay! THANK YOU!!
On behalf of the entire Wood family, We thank you and pray that God will repay to you 100 fold for all you did and were willing to do for us!
With much love,
Mrs. Joseph Wood
Ezekiel is giving Hannah rides around the house. His wheelchair has a seatbelt so she is fastened in. He's been talking with daddy about "rigging" his chair up to have a horn (to honk at those of us that get in his way) and a 'headlight' (so he can make his way to the bathroom at night). He calls himself "mater" from the Cars film since he loves going backwards! :-)
