Home Sweet Home
Well, again, my apologies for not having posted sooner, but the Galvan family have been through many trials that I have not felt I could share on a public forum.
Carlos has come home (as of Wednesday) and physically is doing extremely well. For those of you would like to continue to pray for this beautiful and Godly household, there is a very specific prayer need that I would like to share.
Carlos has two forms of aphasia. To put it as simply as possible, this is a confusion of speech, spoken as well as in understanding. For example, he will speak a lengthy sentence in which he believes that he has communicated his need or want, but in reality, the sentence is completely garbled. This also happens when you speak to him. This causes much frustration an anxiety.
He will be covered for three weeks of intense speech therapy and then it will be their responsibility to seek private therapy.
The needs, of course, are obvious. Pray that the Lord will continue to do the mighty work that He has been doing, and pray for wisdom to discern the next step.
I will not post concerning these dear friends unless I have an update on Carlos' speech. There are many needs, but, as I said before, their privacy in family matters must be maintained. If you would like to send a message of hope to this family please leave your comments and I will forward them. If the Lord gives you the grace to continue to pray for them, it would be much appreciated by us all.
With much love and blessings,
