Here's Lukie getting excited about seeing his sister Amy get home from Denmark
I thought you would all enjoy seeing this wonderful picture of Luke. I think this is one of the best pictures we've seen, as you can see his eyes are both looking right at the camera. He was at the airport waiting for his sister Amy to get in from her 2 1/2 month trip to Denmark to visit her Uncle and Aunt. We are all so happy that Amy is home again we missed her so much.
Here's a little update from his last Dr. visit. It was decided to wean him off his Tizanadine, which is a muscle relaxant since it doesn't seem to be helping his tone issues, just puts him to sleep. The Dr. and I talked at length about what to do next for Luke, we set up an appointment on March 25th to try BOTOX. Gordy and I will be praying about this, hoping that you too will join us in praying to know what would be best for Luke, as it kind of scares me to use BOTOX on him. Good news, Luke is weighing in at 37 pounds once again gaining weight, which is great for Luke but not so great for my back and shoulder, which has been giving me some grief lately. The Dr. said that Luke's back looks great and as usual Luke is looking good, except for the fact that his knee's don't bend and his arms have a hard time straightening out. The Dr. along with Gordy and I are frustrated with the fact that we can't help Luke's muscle tone more, it makes Gordy and I realize all the more our only hope can be in God, He truly is our only answer to Luke's physical needs.
Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Suzi
