Alex had a great day of therapy today with walking on the treadmill with NO harness.  He is being supported by a belt with one of the therapist only to make him shift his weight to the left side.  He still doesn't trust that left side and so he tends to walk a little crooked leaning to the right side lol.  Other than that he did fabulous today.  He also has gotten to where he does not sit during PT at all.  So for 45 minutes he is standing or exercising.  Building that stamina up so that he gets stronger to walk for longer periods of time. 

As we were leaving therapy today Alex wanted to walk to the car... GREAT!  Not only did he want to walk to the car.... he wanted to push me in the wheelchair to the car! Sooooo, I sat in the wheelchair while he pushed me from the gym to the car with his therapist spotting him.  I AM SOOOO PROUD!  he did an awesome job today and I tell you what.... he is really living up to the term "SUPERMAN SPEED RECOVERY"!!!

Below is a picture of the Trach hole.... it is closing up!


One of our prayer warriors is in need of your prayers, knows the power of prayer and knows that God performs miracles daily.  Connie's son Derek is 9 years old and suddenly stopped breathing.  They were unable to revive him until he got to the hospital and they tell her that he may be brain dead and he is currently on life support.  PLEASE lift her and Derek up in your prayers that God will continue to work in and throughout his little body from his head to his toes. Lord I pray that you wrap your arms around them, give Connie the peace and comfort in knowing that she will put total faith in you and that you are in control.  I pray that Derek is in no pain and that you begin healing him and increase his brain activity so that we know he will be ok.  I know Father that you ARE in the drivers seat and that this is part of your bigger plan even though it is hard to fathom why this happened.  So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And all things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” (Matthew 21:21-22) We call out to you Lord..... hear our prayer.... AMEN!

Thank you my prayer warriors... LOVE YA'LL!
