The Pressure is on1

OK, so we are now leaving in slightly over 48 hours! I feel like there is so much to do! Getting ready for a trip like this is so overwhelming but so worth it! We spent the day doing therapy and running errands! We ordered Makenzie another pair of glasses. This pair will have transition lenses to protect her eyes from the sun. This will come in very handy in Florida! We had PT this morning and Makenzie did well. We also met a new speech therapist and she seemed very nice. We will see her again when we get back! Hopfully she has some good ideas for Makenzie's oral feeding.

In her 2nd PT of the day Makenzie did wonderful! Her head control is getting so good! She did a little bit of every activity and then we got out her gait trainer and she took a couple of steps all by herself! She has figured out how to push the walker forward and then her feet get stuck underneath her. It is so cute because she will go forward and get a huge smile on her face! She totally knows the walked moved and she knows that SHE did it! Thank You Jesus!

Yesterday, we spent a good part of the morning at Children's having Makenzie's Mic-Key button (feeding tube) put back in! I was taking her out of her walker and the tubing got caught on the arm rest and POP it was laying on the concrete instead of in her stomach! Oops!!!! She was such a trooper! We also had orthotics take a look at her AFO's and she has grown out of them! Go Makenzie! She has had these braces since Jan and already they are too small! So they casted her feet for new ones and they should be ready shortly after we get back!

Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
(Deuteronomy 32:2, NIV)

Dear Lord,
We thank you that you are a God who renews our strength by the power of your Holy Spirit. We ask that today you would renew Makenzie's strength, and that you would fall on her like rain and enable her to accomplish all she needs to today. Lord, we ask that any dry areas that are not prospering in Makenzie's life would be soaked with your refreshing rain. We also ask that you would refresh all those who work with Makenzie, that you would give them the creativity, knowledge, and insight to know how to best move her forward into all the plans you have. Thank you for all you continue to do in our lives.
In Jesus' Name,

Thank You Jesus for all of the blessings you have graced us with!

Please keep praying for our trip! Pray for safety and health! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!
