1 Month, 4 Weeks, 30 Days...How Do You Measure A Miracle

Looking at this picture hurts my heart. But it also strengthens my testimony of prayer and fasting, and ultimately the Lord's power over all things.

I took Mark for a walk over to the ICU yesterday. We saw his respiratory therapist, a few of his nurses, and Bob, the trauma nurse practitioner. They were astounded by what they saw and heard. Bob told Mark he hadn't expected him to live. And today he walked out of the hospital and thanked all of his nurses for their love and concern. For any who may doubt the existence of God, I give you my Miracle Mark.

Thank you, everyone, for your continued love, support and efforts on our part. We are only partway through our long journey, but what great strides we have made. I don't think it's any coincidence the picture that is hanging behind us. There are GREAT possibilities for us ahead. We will grab each and every one as they come along. This is not the end of this blog. The description says this is for Mark's journey back to his family. We've only just begun. Please hang on with us for the rest of the ride! We love you all!

p.s. Happy New Year!


  1. My heart is so full. All I can say without completely breaking down, is that I love you both with all my heart. We will continue to be at your side every step of the journey and look forward to many, many years of memories to come. You have survived the impossible, you both rock! We love you. Alan & Kim

  2. I am so HAPPY! You are both amazing!!! Prayers do work! Miracles happen! Way to go Mark and Scarlet!

  3. Through tears, I read this aloud to Mike. Without a doubt, Mark is just as real a miracle as those we read about in the New Testament. We are behind you all the way. We are humbled and in awe at the privilege we have to know and love you and to have witnessed this great miracle. Love, love, love to you!

  4. Go Miracle Mark! Go Miracle Mark!! GO Miracle Mark!!! GO MIRACLE MARK!!!!

You are an incredible family with strength and faith beyond measure. You will continue to be a part of our prayers! Thanks so much for sharing our journey -- and we are excited to hear about what is happening as your journey continues! Love you!

  7. Yeah! So good to hear Mark is home with his family! I grew up just down the street from the Davis family (the Robertsons) and am so happy to hear Mark is doing so well. I also work for one of the Doctors who first treated Mark and he is amazed "totally AMAZED" at Marks progress. Amazing what Prayers and a strong will can do! Best wishes to Mark and your Family!

  8. WOW! Mark looks great!! This has been an amazing miracle to witness through this blog! Thank you for posting and strengthening the faith of so many! I look forward to reading the new progress each day! Love you guys!

  9. My literal first thought of Mark at home was that you will get to snuggle his toes with yours under the covers again, and it made my heart happy. I don't know that I could survive a month without Dnny's toes. I bet this Sunday-morning-family-snuggle is going to be the BEST EVER!!!! Love you. Still with you.

    PS. Now I will have "RENT" in my head for a week! Thanks a lot!
