AMAZING MIRACLE

"for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose."
(Philippians 2:13, NIV)

Today is a day that I just want to shout from the rooftop at what a great day we had! This post is going to be very picture and video heavy because it shows Makenzie's progress better then works could ever describe!!!

We started our day out with speech. Makenzie has not really used her talker for over a month! I was so excited to see her use it again and she didn't seem to skip a beat! She knew just what to do and her therapist had programed it with some of the things that Makenzie and I did in CA. I sure hope her talker comes soon!! She NEEDS it so bad!

Here is video of Makenzie telling me that she went to Disneyland with Blake and Joey and that the Matterhorn was her favorite!

Then we moved onto PT. Makenies it bearing weight SOOOO well!!! It is almost like the last 3 months of struggle with this never happened!!! WOW!!! She was standing up on the wall ladder with very little support and at one point her therapist let go and she just stood there! AMAZING!!!

She stood while holding onto her kae walker! She also did a great job of putting weight through her shoulders and arms!!! Then she had a treat of Ice cream. She held it and put it to her mouth! What a treat for mommy and Makenzie!!

Since we had such a great PT session we worked on eating in OT. Makenzie did awesome!!!

The next miracle from the last couple of days is.... after I sent the GI doctor in LA an e-mail asking for his help weaning Makenzie from her tube...yesterday, he responded in less then 3 hours!!! He sent a return e mail with some questions and wants a video of Makenzie eating. I am so excited! So today was spent recording Makenzie eating! Here is a very short piece for you to see how Makenzie is doing!

Then we were off to school.

She painted a picture with very little help. She moved the brush around the paper all by herself and then she pressed leaves into the wet paint to make this....

Then it was time for goodbye circle time. As I have said before Makenzie has been doing SO well with sitting. Today in circle she sat for about 2 min all by herself with no prompts!! She sat with a few prompts here and there for over 10 min! Makenzie, Makenzie, oh how proud your mommy is of you!!!

After school Makenzie played in her stander for about 45 min. Then it was off to bed. To end the day on a PERFECT note... Makenzie put herself to sleep tonight without a single tear!!!! WOW!!

TODAY WAS AMAZING!! THANK YOU JESUS!!! YOU ARE SO FAITHFUL TO THIS FAMILY!!!

Keep praying!!! Today is proof that God hears and answers!!! Believe!!!

Dear Father,
We thank you that you work in us to act according to your good purposes. We pray, Lord, that we would be sensitive to your leading in our lives. We also pray that all those who are involved with Makenzie will act according to your purposes. We pray that all those who are involved with her would walk in supernatural revelation and creativity from you so they can effectively do what is best for her. We also pray that you would visit Makenzie with your anointing to help her overcome every obstacle that she needs to overcome. We pray that she would have new ability to understand, receive, and respond to your love.
In Jesus Name,
Amen
