“Moon” Progress

  • by

“This latest update about Evan is written with joy and gratitude. Thank you to everyone who contributed prayers, pictures, and funds in recognition of Evan’s 34th birthday. Our family was surprised and joyously touched by the many who celebrated with us through Grace Klein Community. We feel blessed to have Evan as a son and also know him as a man of God still ministering to others as he overcomes his own challenges.

We have been busy these last few months and apologize for not posting an update sooner. Home physical therapy continues, including an almost daily routine with the exercise bike, in preparation for Evan to return to cycling using a three wheel cycle. Plans are in progress to obtain an adult tricycle through Redemptive Cycles. Evan’s physical and occupational therapy at Emory will resume in May. We have been blessed to find insurance this year and now Emory rehabilitation accepts he new insurance. We have been doing home therapy and water therapy since October so it will be nice to get back to Emory. Evan’s latest MRI results are wonderful. The medical report says good and stable. What a wonderful gift! MRI testing will continue every two months.

Evan’s father’s recovery from the thyroid cancer surgery has gone well. He is still on “surveillance” and the latest tests were good results. We have adjusted to his new voice.

The service dog “in training” is now qualified to wear the “service dog” patches on his vest. He finished school last month after a year of training and we are pleased. We will continue to work with him to teach him new things and regular visits to V-dogs K9 Foundation to see his friends and keep him in top service dog form.

Evan stays busy with therapies, doctor appointments, wonderful visits from friends, Sunday night church, Lego building, occasional trips, and he is participating in an online discipleship class that a friend graciously gifted him. He had a relaxed and enjoyable camping trip near Hiawassee that included campfires and meeting new friends. The Lego display shelves are filling up with kits and some of his own creations. Thank you to family and friends for gifting him with Legos for fun and therapy.

Evan remains strong in his resolve to regain the use of his left arm and leg through prayer and work. His courage and happiness inspires us all. Our family recognizes that this has been made possible through Jesus and the people who have been generous with prayers, time, and funds. It is impossible to thank everyone enough so we pray for everyone that has contributed in some way to help Evan obtain the best medical treatments, therapies, healthy food, and vitamins. Our daily “Thank you, Jesus” continues as we seek God and His strength.

“Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always.” – Psalm 105:4
