Things around the Pettigrew household continue to be busy ...  
from nine week tests, to Matt going to jury duty!

Izzy had a good week at school last week.  We had comments 
that she was tracking very well in her vision therapy and that
she is drinking water well for them too.  Her vision just keeps 
getting better and better!  She is really looking around a lot and
noticing things.  

Thursday afternoon Isabelle  was sitting beside Bailey
and he was playing on his PSP.  She was watching the little screen
so intently.  He pushed the button with her finger and then she 
offered her little finger to push it again.  

Thursday evening Amanda and I went to
see a play and I came out of my bedroom dressed up more than 
usual, Izzy looked me up and down and then said "wanna go" or
something very close.  She knew just looking at me that I was going
somewhere and wanted to be included.  When I came home later 
that night I got her up and held her and she just looked at me for
a long time with a semi smile, very glad that mom was home.  
Matt's mom spent the night Friday night and helped out with therapy.  
She noticed too that Izzy is looking more at faces and into eyes.  
While we were preparing to leave for the pumpkin patch Saturday,
Paula got Izzy to say "wanna go" several times.  We are excited to get
back to Ponca for more hbot, hopefully in the next couple of weeks we
will make several trips.  

We are so blessed that Isabelle continues to be so healthy!  We continue
to pray for healing in Isabelle's brain and thank God for that healing!  
Thank you for praying!  We love all of you... our prayer warriors!!!

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint."
 Isaiah 40:31

What a great praise report! How exciting that she is vocalizing and using phrases that you can understand! God's healing power is certainly evident in Izzy! I continue to lift Izzy and your family in prayer to Our Lord. Thanks for sharing your great news!

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” I John 5:14,15

I'm so happy to hear that Izzy's vision is getting better. The pictures you've posted recently have been wonderful, she looks so alert and attentive. The fact that she is vocalizing so well is a miracle, God is so good to give encouragement on the way back to complete healing.

My scripture to ponder on today is: He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted Job 5:9 What an awesome God we serve to give us such hope in knowing that He is not running short in the miracle department.

Love in Christ,

We just continue to be amazed at the progress of this little girl. God is truly working a miracle in her life -- just as we requested that He do. You must be so excited to watch this miracle develop day by day. Keep up the blogging!
God Bless,
