Wishes Can Happen and Ernie's Bike Shop!! I am so thankful to Miss Jessica for turning Brooke into Wishes. And then what a wonderful program, thank you Miss Carol and Wishes can Happen! Beyond that, we were so blessed to work with Ernie's! They have a wonderful staff. They worked with us over and over when the bike did not fit Brooke. Aidan and Brooke thought it was pretty cool to meet Ernie himself!
For those of you who continue to pray...Brooke is doing good. She has started first grade, and loves learning. She tires very easily, so I school her for an hour and she rest. She does very well when she wears her collar. Sometimes she likes to test her limits though, and later suffers for it. Such a hard lesson for a 5 year old to learn. Brooke is suffering from severe leg and back pain at times. And we are still dealing with other issues. She was taking piano lessons before we left. (A gift from her grandparents) Brooke really loves music, and it seems to soothe her. We are still dealing with sensory issues, especially sound. It is such a blessing for me to be home with her, as she likes to keep quiet and stick close to home. But Brooke keeps her spunky personality and continues to make us smile, and warm our hearts! Thank you all for continued prayers!
Tomorrow we get our insurance! Praise God nothing major has happened in the past 3 months! Brooke is far behind on medically testing. So now slowly, as time and money permit, we will make appointments and travel to see neurosurgeon, urologist, and gastro docs. Please pray that we will find a pediatric doc as wonderful as our beloved Dr Kungle.
This is but a journey, and some days we yearn for home more than others. So thankful for the people who lift us up on this journey, and to a faithful God who sustains!
