Today was a great day! I was playing with Makenzie in her highchair and moving her legs in a running motion. I was singing her a song about running and a huge smile came across her face and all of the sudden she started to GIGGLE!!!! It was the most amazing sight to see. She has been so smiley lately. She has been giving tons of social smiles. I never knew how much we all take for granted the simplest things in life. She is doing so well! Thank You all for your prayers and support. Please continue to pray for healing. God is listening and answering our many prayers.

Makenzie is doing well. She just got over a cold! She has been doing great in therapy and is also still doing well with the G-tube feeds! With her being sick we haven't been doing much orally. Too many buggers. Not to much else to report. Life is busy! Next week it should slow down a bit! Yeah! Please keep praying for Makenzie! She continues to grow and heal and we are so proud of her! Pray, Pray, Pray, Pray!!! Thank You!

Makenzie is doing well. She has however been running a 100.5-102.8F fever on and off for the last three days. I took her to the pediatrician today and her blood work was normal, her lungs sounded good, no strep or flu, so I guess we just sit and wait. Her rehab doctor said to give it a couple days and if she is still running a fever she wants to do a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia. Please pray that what ever is going on inside Makenzie's body heals so she can get back to her happy little self!
Please also pray for sleep! Makenzie has been waking up in the middle on the night and won't go back to sleep for hours. I am exhausted and need to get at least one WHOLE nights sleep soon. Well off to bed I go, maybe tonight will be that night!

Makenzie had a rehab appointment on Monday at Children's Hospital. It was a GREAT appointment. The doctor took Makenzie off all of her pharmacy drugs! No more nasty side effects! Praise God! Her doctor was also very impressed with her overall improvment! She was most impressed with the fact that her agitation was gone. She said that was HUGE! She is also very supportive of the hyperbaric chamber and supplements. I can't wait to get her back in the chamber. We are still raising money to buy our own so that we don't have to leave CO and all of our family ,friends, and therapists. Feeding is really the olny source of concern right now. Makenzie is 18lbs and has been for 6 months now. The doctor wants to run some blood tests to find out if there is any medical reason she is not gaining weight. We started calorie loading her food and hopfully that will help. Makenzie is making WONDERFUL progress! God has blessed in ways we never thought possible. Keep praying for Makenzie as her road to healing is still long. Pray that she gains some weight and has more energy to heal. Thank You all for your love and support.
