Blessed Healing

We just got home from my sons second "stringathon". He has been playing the violin in the orchestra at his school for the last two years and I am so proud of him for sticking with it. He has become quite the violinist!

As I sat in the gym with Makenzie in my lap waiting for the concert to start I was awe struck by how different this year was. She loved all of the sights and sounds. She took it all in and the late night was no big deal at all.  A year ago it was really tough. She was so tired and the gym full of people set her into sensory over load. I am so very happy with where we are today! I was able to enjoy every note without the stress of the environment and her exhaustion! Blessed healing!

Today Makenzie and I hung at home. She had two hours of PT and we broke out the Neuro suit again for the first time in a really long time. Makenzie did amazing!

Her therapist used a bench, box, toy, the steps and the cat to entertain Makenzie while they worked on sitting. Makenzie shifted weight through her hips with ease and even put her hands down to the side to catch herself several times.

Then they moved into half kneel. Makenzie's therapist has asked me to do this with her at least once a day. After several attempts I have been able to coax her into it on one side but not the other but her PT makes it look so very easy!  Maybe this request was a trick to make me appreciate what she does for Makenzie more. LOL!

All in all it was a really wonderful day.

Tomorrow we have several appointments as well as a full deep clean of the house in order to get ready for our appointment with the real estate agent on Friday morning. We have made some astonishing headway in readying the house to show and also in finding a home that will be perfect for my whole family! I am so, so, so, so, very excited! I want to say a huge thank you to each and everyone that has played a part in this process! God has been so faithful!

Believe... Prayer Works!
