Helping Hands

Hello to everyone who participated in the "Helping Hands" program -- I wanted to send a heart felt Thank You to all of you. The meals felt like a true lifesaver, especially looking back now on the 1st few months of Zack's injury. With me living at the hospital and the other kids and Adron here it was your support that got us through. Thank you also to all the people who helped with laundry, house cleaning, kid watching and grocery shopping. Now that we are over 7 months post injury I think we have somewhat settled into our new normal and I have been adding "chores" back into my schedule one at a time. My schedule feels like a puzzle that I orchestrate daily. As hard as it is we are doing it (by the grace of God). My whole family thanks you for taking time out from your schedules to help us. Please keep visiting Zack's blog as I will keep it updated with pictures and Zack's progress... for those of you who are reading this as an e-mail. Monica, a special thanks for setting up Helping Hands and keeping it running. And to Tracy for posting on the blog continuously as I am computer illiterate. (haha) Again Thank You from the Collie family.

P.S. I have a large assortment of pot & pans. If you're missing something come over and look. (Thanks again!)

Zack in "Walker"

These are photos of Zack in the "walker" different days at Project Walk he is continuing to work at his recovery. Most of the time I think how amazing he is doing and has recovered a lot for only being 7 months post injury on the other hand its a very slow process and no guarantees. Zack's legs seem to be the strongest part of his body (which is great) but he needs his core, lower back and hips to actually walk on his "own" also please keep praying for hands, wrist or finger movement. Just wanted to give a update. Its emotionally up and down as you can imagine. Thanks for your continued support. Love, Amber
