Izzy had a good weekend! Matt's mom, aunt Jane Ellen, and sister Jane Ann spent the night with us Friday night. Isabelle decided to show off a little and vocalize for about 30 minutes with gram early Saturday morning. Later, Matt put a metal ring on her foot and she kicked it off repeatedly on both feet. It was very very purposeful and accurate kicking! She had horse therapy on Monday. Shorty was resting so she got to ride Opie. She did well, relaxing to the point of actually falling asleep. In the Fall the ride was getting uncomfortable because she was tight. She seemed very comfortable and was able to ride for at least 30 minutes. She worked hard and as a result was sore on Tuesday. We have also started some different things at home with her that go along with the program we plan to begin this summer. We have decided to go forward with our plans to take her to Philadelphia this Summer to begin a new program. We are excited about bombarding her with stimuli and look forward to awesome results. While lying on the floor the other night, Izzy rolled off her wedge mat and then rolled over again ending up face down on the wood floor. She was not happy about that and was kinda stuck... But we were happy with all her hard work. She continues to show us that she is very aware and very capable of many many things. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the statewide visual therapist was visiting her school last week and did some light box work with Isabelle while I was in the room. She said she was amazed at the improvment in Izzy's vision since Fall! She tracked both ways and held her gaze much longer than before. We continue to praise God for our little miracle... Izzy!!!

Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD [shall be] a light unto me. Micah 7:7-8
