Zack's Birthday Bash!

Zack's 16th B-day Bash was a Big hit! Thank You to all that came out to celebrate and support Zack. We opened his gifts the next day and enjoyed reading each card, I'm sorry I wont be able to send out individual Thank You's, but know Zack was all smiles and definitely felt loved. By the way the winner of the Trader Joe's raffle bag went to Marrissa Metoyer! Also Zack slept through the night that night and every night since after we adjusted a medication that I believe was causing the insomnia.

Project Walk is going great he made his trainer and all of us very happy when he moved his legs today!!!! I even caught it on video (more about that to come).

Zack has gone to the movies, and to a couple different friends houses to hangout, that's my social boy!

I also wanted to Thank you for the encouraging comments on the blog, I don't have time to respond to them, but I appreciate them and feel supported.

Great week...Love, Amber

Project Walk

Zack started physical therapy at Project Walk in Carlsbad. Zack says he loves it there and feels welcome. He is meeting new people everytime he goes. For this month, we make the hour drive 4x's a week. This will taper down come school's schedule next month. But for now we want to go as much as possible.

Specific Prayer Request & Zack's Birthday

We need specific prayer about sleeping. Zack has had insomnia for weeks but has progressively gotten worse, to the point he's up all night with anxiety and crazy spasms. He usually falls asleep about 5a, but then I have to wake him for therapy so neither of us are sleeping well, as you can imagine, we're exhausted!

We have tried 4 different medications all have had the reverse reaction. Please pray for rest, there is a lot I need to organize and trying to us used to our new demands.

On a happier note, 8/13 is "my boy's" 16ht Birthday. Happy Birthday Zack!
