Well we are halfway through another week! Makenzie is doing good! She has been a happy baby and is sleeping well at night.... if only I could get her to take some good naps!

Her therapy this week went well! She has been reaching with her arms and doing alot more pushing of buttons when you help her arm and hand get to the toy! It is so awsome to see! Of course I want her hands to just work right but I keep reminding myself of how far she has come since last year when we could not even get her hand open or her elbow straight!

She has also been doing well with eating! She is no where close to getting rid of the GJ tube but we are making baby steps in the right direction! Yesterday she had pureed spaggitti and bannana pudding. She did great! She was getting some lip closure and sucking which is also a great start to getting back to good oral motor habits!

I just want to send out a BIG THANK YOU to every one that is walking with us on this journey! You are all loved and we as a family feel soooo blessed! Please keep praying for Makenzie! Pray, Pray, Pray, BeLIeVe prayer works!

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity."
(Proverbs 17:17, NIV)

Dear Father,
Thank you for the family and friends that you have given us who help us in times of trouble. There are days we want to scream for help. There are also those who would like to offer us help, but perhaps do not know what they can do or are reluctant to ask. We ask that you would help us to effectively communicate with one another, whether it is us needing help or them wanting to offer help. Lord, we also ask for the days when we feel alone in this struggle with brain injury that you would give us people to surround us. Father, we pray that you would provide us with those who will lift us up in prayer and with other needs when we feel overtaken by the many issues we face. We also ask that we would be able to identify those you have put in our lives who have keys we need. No matter what situation we have with our extended family and friends, we thank you that we can always rely on the Holy Spirit to offer great help in times of need and desperation.
In Jesus' Name,

"these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family"
(1 Timothy 5:4, NIV)

"Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother's house when disaster strikes you — better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away."
(Prov 27:10, NIV)

"If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!"
(Ecclesiastes 4:10, NIV)

"Jesus did not let him, but said, 'Go home to your family and tell them how much the
Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.'"
(Mark 5:19, NIV)

"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."
(1 Tim 5:8, NIV)
