HBOT & swings...

 Another addition to the 'DREAMCATCHER PLAYGROUND'... swings!  Izzy now gets to swing while at recess and she seems to really enjoy swinging!  Her days at school continue to go well.  Camilla (p.t.) worked with her Friday morning (her day off!).  She got her into the walkable contraption and told me she was really impressed with the results.  They helped Iz take steps but she did initiate some steps on her own and she started with a floppy head but when she got moving held her head midline and did great.  Now she will practice walking with this piece of equipment while doing her p.t.  
We just got in today from a trip up to Ponca for hbot.  We used Skipper's table last night to do her patterning after the first dive.  Mom went with me to help out.  We ended up getting back in the chamber after 10 p.m. getting out at about 11:30...  Back up at 6 a.m. and in the chamber again.  It was a good trip and Isabelle did well.  She slept all night which is always good!  
We continue to see new things with Izzy, while they can appear small we know that they are HUGE and rejoice in every morsel!  

"Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone.* 5 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up again. 8 Tie them to your hands as a reminder, and wear them on your forehead. 9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.  Deut. 6:4-9

Great to hear about more progress by Izzy. Also, glad to know your Mom got to go along. Is she going to retire soon? I remember that was her plan some years ago. Or ... do they have her held captive at OMD? (I escaped!) Love & Prayers, Betty G.

Izzy looks really relaxed in the swing! I bet she does love it! It's wonderful and such a blessing that you're able to see changes in Izzy - what a great reward for all the work you do with her. Whatever happened with the walker you were trying to get for home - were you ever able to get it approved by the insurance company? It's wonderful that Camilla is working with her the way that she is with walking. I know the Lord will continue to bless you and your family. As always my prayers are with Izzy and your family, and thank you for your prayers on behalf of my Mom.

Izzy looks awesome, she has a beautiful bend in her knees. Did she ever have to have botox? Luke has struggled to get a good bend in his knees for the past 2 years and I have not wanted to give him botox.

You are doing a great job with all that you are doing for Izzy. I know that you believe in healing from God. Do you ever wonder just how much He expects us to do to "help Him out," does that make sense. I truly want God to get all the glory for Luke's healing, therefore I struggle at times to know how much to invest into all the stuff we are doing for him, though on the other hand I find it impossible to sit back and wait for God's timing to heal Him. Can you relate at all to what I'm saying?

Thank you for your encouraging words, I continue to pray for Izzy's complete healing, in His time, He makes all things beautiful.

Love in Christ,
