We just got back from getting more hyperbaric treatments. We spent a week in San Antonio and Joshua recieved a total of 9 treatments this time. So far he's had a total of 49. Since getting the first 40 he has shown progress. He is crying now and showing us new movements. His therapist are very impressed with him. We've also had some of the specialist comment on how "good" he looks (very alert). The only set back we've had is he is still throwing up and his seizures have increased. They took him off of some medicines and that is when we saw the increase. As far as the throwing up, I don't think the fundo is tight anymore and am planning on seeing the surgeon again. He might need to go back into surgery. I'm very pleased with his progress, I just wish the seizures would stop completely. He now cries when he gets a really strong one. I won't stop believing, praying, and having faith that somehow it will get better.

I've looked into stem cell treatment and eventually wanted to give him this opportunity. I've heard so many good things about it. As a matter of fact, I met a mother who said it decreased her child's seizures. I also read about another that totally stopped her sons seizures and also has improved his mobility. I am very encouraged. This procedure is very expensive. I will keep you posted.

Yesterday I recieved notice that my friend's baby went to meet the Lord yesterday. He was about 10 months old and he went with the lord in his sleep. He had many health issues just like Joshua. I am so heartbroken. The little angel's name is Kaden, please pray for his family. They are so dear to my heart.

We are planning on getting Stem cell Treatments for Sierra (hopefully in March!). If you want more info on it, I would suggest that you join the yahoo groups. They are really good!
