Zane Update

It's been a little while since I updated you all on Zane's progress. He's continuing to have therapy 5 days/week for 2 1/2 hours a day. We are super-impressed with the treatment he's getting. He's put back on a total of 10 pounds, and his appetite is much better. He ofter surprises me with how much stronger he's getting.

A very recent development is that he's starting to get a little feeling back in his right hand. It's not like normal feeling, but more like the tingling you get after being out in the cold for a long time & warming back up. In therapy the other day his therapist got his left arm back to a 160 degree angle. This is only 20 degrees away from normal!

Zane and I have had the opportunity to speak at a chapel & church service and are so thankful. We have 6 more appointments coming up over the next few months. We are both humbled and excited by the opportunity to share our story. We feel that this is one way that God is using what we've been through.

Again- I don't think I can thank you all enough for all of your support. We are forever thankful each and every kind word and prayer. They made all the difference in the world

Hi Zane and Courtney, You are both in my daily prayers! You have such an amazing testimony to share with so many. I am glad to hear of all the opportunities you have to do so. You never know who will be listening to you one day and come to know the saving grace of our Lord. I am so awed by the continual progress that Zane is making, thank you for the updates as you are trying to get on to normalcy in your lives. I love your new "nest"! I had to chuckle about your new find.......you are a woman after my own heart! My husband is never surprised to see what freebies I can find and haul home. It's so fun to come upon one of those great treasures. That is a beautiful sheepskin! Glad you had an eye out for it, too! I don't leave comments often but I do check your site to see how you are both doing. It warms my heart to see the progress and I thank the Lord for answered prayers. God bless, and hopefully our paths will cross someday.....hugs to both of you!
