mike did make it through his first day back in therapy.  he met his 3 new therapists and mostly we just went through preliminary evaluations of his history and how he is doing right now.  we began to set goals in each area and checked on some pressure wounds forming on his heels.  the physical therapy assessment gathered that he does not yet have enough leg strength to put weight on his legs so we will still wait on that chance for standing but that is still the goal.  another exciting goal is to get some functional gain in his eyesight.  his eyes have not aligned themselves and so he has endured double vision.  we hope to get some new direction on addressing that frustration.  he will work on various other goals as well but those stuck out.  they did lay him on a bed/table so he did not have to endure the wheelchair the whole time and he expressed his undying love to the therapists who made that possible.  specifically he said that it was amazing and he wanted to come back every day (just to lay on the table).  it is a seriously exciting new place to be in mike’s growth.  and he did ask every new therapist if they had ever heard of young life.  he was trying to find new leaders.  made me laugh on a long day.  thanks for dinners and prayer, michelle

    We are so excited about Mike and therapy! We are praying for you Mike!
    We got a hold of the YL conference video of you guys….”I love Christ and kids” from Mike was amazing to hear. Mike, it’s your heart, always, nothing has changed that. Michelle, we love you and yes, you are bringing God glory through your lives.
    We check the website often…please keep us updated when you have a few moments.

    We love the Zs!
