The lord answered our prayers

My husband, Gary, contracted GBS in April 2007. He is unable to use his arms or hands at all. I waited until April 2008 to file for his SS disability. We had our telephone interview on April 22, 2008. I sent in all our paper work and we were approved as of yesterday, June 4, 2008. I had no idea that this would be approved as quick as it was! The Lord has certainly answered our prayers!My husband has worked at the same job for almost 30 years and when this hit him last year it was devastating for all of us. My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma in July 2007 and she passed away in Jan. of this year. I must say it has been a long and hard year but I have put all my faith in the lord and knew that he would take care of me and my family. We have had so many people praying for us and still praying that Gary will eventually get well one day. My husband was very active before this hit him. He took care of himself, he walked 3-4 miles a day after working 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, but through it all he has maintained a good and positive attitude, which I think has helped him improve. He still cannot feed, shave or bathe himself but hopefully one day with the grace of God he will be able to return to the man he was before this devastating disease hit him. God bless you all!
