Update on Josh...Attitude

We are very excited about the progress we are seeing with the hyperbaric chamber oxygen treatments! Here we are 14 months out from the accident and Josh continues to make gains...in fact, those gains seem to be accelerating! He is working hard. He knows what is going on and we are very grateful! We have started a YouTube channel called "All in for Josh" where we intend to post brief videos so you can have a peek into his day to day activities and progress. You will be able to subscribe if you like to receive updates when new videos are posted. We have so much to be thankful for. Since the beginning of this journey a verse has stayed close to my heart. It is a verse I have shared before but

Update on Josh..We Fit!

We have had so many questions about our time in the Hyperbaric Chamber that we wanted to send out a quick update to let you know how it is going. The treatment is formally called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Some of you remember that Josh and I would both have to go into the chamber together. This was a first for this clinic and we were all concerned whether or not we would fit. After 5 tries we made it.

Luckily, with Josh's time in the Navy, this process i

Update on Josh... Cool Runnings!

I was over at the house this weekend building a fire in the back yard that Josh was able to come down and enjoy. We had also mentioned in the last post about the trial for the man that hit Josh. A new court date has been set for early February. The family just asks for prayers as this process continues to drag on. On a more positive note, Josh has his first hyperbaric chamber treatment tomorrow. Josh and dad have been working hard on their best impression of Cool Runnings, the Jamaican Bobsled Team a

Update on Josh...A Word about Faith

Josh finally got his Botox treatment this past week! It will take a couple of weeks for it to kick in but when it does it will help calm the muscle spasticity. That will allow us to do more effective range of motion therapy and muscle memory work. Thanks for the prayers! We will start hyperbaric chamber treatment next week. These treatments will saturate his body with oxygen which is supposed to help his nerves continue to heal. There is a catch, I will have to lay on the gurney and enter the chamber with Josh to help monitor him during the procedure. The chamber was only built for one so it will be a tight squeeze!! In our last post I mentioned getting him up in the standing frame. Just a f
