ON THE GO------------Let's get things rolling

So far we've had a week of hyperbaric treatments done. We are going to get 40 by August 8. At first it was a little tough on our ears and extremely uncomfortable. It has gotten better throughout the week. I have been asked if I see a difference yet, I do notice a few things but will wait to share because I feel it is way to soon to say anything yet. Just continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I will do my best to keep updates.

We are still trying to raise the money needed to receive these treatments. Our raffle seems to be going ok, however we still have many more tickets that need to be sold!!!!! We are not in the clear yet, as a matter of fact the price has been raised. Therefore we NEED to sell all the raffle tickets. Those of you that know you can help sell them please contact me.

Back Home....just in time!

Joshua was discharged on Tuesday night. He is not fully recovered, however, we did come home with once again....NEW MED's. On a positive note, we got him off of one medicine. Thanks to my parents and Tony's parents we were able to pull off a birthday party the next day. It was crazy having a full day of appointments and getting ready for the party at my house. Thank the Lord it all went well. We had many people show up and we had a great time. I will post pictures later.

We are so happy to be home and I am extremely excited because we are able to make our first hyperbaric appointment on Monday (7-7-08). Continue to keep us in your prayers! I just know something miraculous will come out of all this. I will be taking our lab top with us so I can keep updates as needed. Thanks to the car wash and the firefighters union raffle, we are able to get treatments for the month of July!!!!!!!!!! I am so grateful to you guys and those of you who also gave of your time to support the fundraisers. Tony and I are still selling tickets for the raffle we are doing. This will help with the rest of the treatments for Joshua. I will keep you posted.

OH, I also have added two links for those of you who have been asking about the hyperbaric treatments. These links contain amazing videos of some success stories. Also, I was asked to give specific things that I want people praying for so here it is:

1. Seizures to stop

2. Cerebral Palsy
(this will help him sit, stand, walk, hold his head...better muscle control)

3. Complete Swallowing & ability to suck
(so he can eat by mouth--no more G-tube)

4. No more aspirating
(if he gets healed from #3 then this won't be a problem anymore)

5. Heal his brain
(no more abnormal activity--this will take care of his seizures,alertness-focusing-sight, movements....)

I guess these things pretty much go hand in hand. I wanted to tell you specifically the issues he is having. I also want to ask that as you pray for Joshua to include Joshua's little friend Giulianna.
