Makenzie Found Her Voice

Yesterday was great!!! We had 3 therapies and she was in a great mood! In Pt her therapist was working with her and she made a "Ahhh" sound. We both looked at each other and couldn't figure out if we had just heard the same thing. Then we went to OT and Speech and came home to have OT here. We were in the kitchen and she did it again...... and again..... and then again!!!!! It was the most beautiful noise we have heard in 9 months! She continued to laugh and make babbling sounds all evening and would even respond to a question with a ahhhh sound!!! She also giggled a whole lot! Today was not as much but we did get giggles and she made her new sounds like 2 times. I was hoping for more but I keep reminding myself that she did this with smiling as well. She smiled here and there for a good long while and now she smiles all of the time!!! The pathways are there it just takes time!

We also got her Food Sensitivity testing back today. There were some interesting results. It came back with 22 different foods that her body may be extremely sensitive to. The big one were...banana, beef, egg, garlic, milk, peanut, soybean, wheat, almond, apricot, wax bean, canola, casein, and gluten. So now we have to take her off of all of these food for at least 6-8 weeks and try to slowly reintruduce them to see if she can handle them. We also have to put her on a 4 day rotating diet so that she doesn't get any new sensitivities! Sounds like fun huh? It is all worth it though. 4 weeks ago the only answer was surgery and today on an already restricted diet she has been almost reflux and puke free for over 3 weeks!!!! Yeah GOD!!!! Thank you God for leading us to Micheal Payne and Living Well Today!

Well my house is clean, the laundry is done, and I just finished feeding Makenzie so It is time for my head to hit the pillow and go to sleep! Thank you all for your prayers! Keep believing in God's Power and Grace in restoring Makenzie!!!! Prayer Works!!!
