Too soon for glory giving?

"Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make knwon among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, Sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles and the judgments he pronounced..."- Psalm 105:1-5
Okay friends, family, countrymen, aliens with internet access- I am walking!
Limping actually (but who cares about technicalities!)!
After 4 months of not walking- crutching and wheeling, and not driving, and over a year's worth of pain- I am very proud to say PRAISE THE LORD for His deliverance out of this and the beginnings of restoration. Not even restoration- wait- rejuvenation- no, wait. How about rebuilding? I like that. I have been rebuilt with new understandings and a new closeness to the Lord and with more compassion for people that REALLY have it tough. Lord, please don't let me forget your blessings. Please don't let me forget the hurts in my construction phase that have been used in my remodeling. And THANK YOU for this chance to walk with a new found appreciation.
Thank you for my new vision, that came from no sight. Thank you for my new walk, which came from not walking. Praise!
See here's the deal.
Last week I noticed the pain was lessening. It just didn't hurt as bad to sit, stand, lay down on that side, and finally I thought well why don't I just try walking around the house. Which is what I have been doing for the past week or so. I can limp slowly and I do still feel pain. The pain did start gradually last October, who knows maybe it can gradually go away. The bonescan did show that the swelling the bone marrow (what I'm still sticking with as the cause of pain) had gone down or had gone away. Praise again!
I do still have the neurological issues: tremors, tingling, left side off, possibly spasticity, etc. and I will get those looked into further by possibly one more neuro. The MRI's of the brain and neck showed nothing. I have a great friend and connection who works with a neurologist that I am hoping to go see soon. Thanks Jon! And I will see my other neurologist tomorrow to go over stuff too. I'm hoping that will lead to more answers? This is wonderful news and I'm so thankful for it. Now we just have to pray I get back (God willing) to fully functioning again. I will be thankful for limping though!! And let's also pray that I know what the heck that whole deal was about it so if it comes back we can be on it!
So glad I get to share you all a piece of the Lord's victory in my life. This is good!
