Saturday, April 17--7:30am

We woke up this morning and Mom called up to the hospital and talked to the night nurse. Cody is responding to commands! He will follow you around the room and squeeze your hand. Mom went back there around 6:45 this morning and he was resting so she didn't talk to him. Last night he had opened his eyes and squeezed Jessi's hand! I didn't post that last night because we are too scared to get excited. The doctors keep telling us that we can't be sure yet. Those are just their opinions and our faith is much stronger than any doctor can ever know. God has provided us with so many miracles. He is unbelievable. Cody is such a great testament to what faith can do. I hope everyone of you will take this and make a believer out you. Please keep praying. This is only the beginning of a long road.

The nurses have spoken with us this morning about the day today. They only want immediate family to go back and spend time with Cody. These little steps he has been making are so exausting to him. I know this is going to be hard because so many people want to see him. But we have to do what's best for Cody. We have to let him get some rest. We still want you to come if you have planned too. We are telling Cody when people come to see him. Having so many people in there and trying to get him to do things could possibly stress him out and maybe cause him to relapse.

It's been a great night. Please pray that we continue to have more of these. Your prayers are what's doing this and we thank you so much.


  1. God has touched so many lives through this terrible event. Anyone who has "seen" these miracles, even from a distance, just has to realize that our God is the one true God. He is still alive and active! You all are doing such a great job of giving Him the glory when these baby steps take place. You will be blessed for your witness to others.

  2. I don't know your family, but I heard about Cody though Traci Sutton. I have been so moved by your story. I will never forget Cody or your family. I am in "ahh" of your faith and Cody will. God is good!!!
    Hugs & prayers,

  5. Godspeed to you, Cody and your family.

  6. God's power is awesome...Mom and I check for posts often throughout the day everyday and I pray each time while the page opens on the screen, "Dear Lord, it's for your glory! In Jesus name, Amen." We promise, the prayers are continuing and they will....God is, was, and will always be..." Linda Briggs (& Lane) and Treava Ashworth.

  7. After reading the past few posts, I was overwhelmed with the news this morning...he opened his eyes!?! I'm hoping to get down there to visit you all again, and maybe hang around a bit longer. I feel he'll pull through, he just needs his time.

    My best thoughts are with you all.
