Yesterday I went with him to the Neuro-Institute to watch him in therapy. He did great there too. It was so neat for me to see the interaction between him and Makenzie (he also had a TBI and was at PCH the same time as Luke.) Luke gets there a few hours before him, so they have therapy the last hour together. Makenzie is SO good for him!! He tells Luke, "We gotta work hard bro to get better.," and "we are tough dudes Luke, we are survivors." Yesterday they played table hockey, had a sit up challenge, and also had a walking race. Luke was all smiles as Makenzie was cheering him on.
Here they are playing hockey:

Those of you that came to visit Luke when he was at PCH may remember an older boy, Makenzie that was in the next room over. He also had a brain injury as the result of a car accident. Well...he is now at the therapy place Luke is going to. He says he wants to be Luke's big brother. Luke says ok to that...very cute. Anyway, today Luke and Makenzie had a walking race. My dad said Luke was very fired up over that, and did great!
Tonight I give thanks for a great week....that kid never ceases to amaze me with his perseverance and drive!!!

He has been working on crawling and tall kneeling a lot this week. There is a theory that in order to walk...you must first crawl. So, we have shifted the focus for the next month or so to really get Luke crawling more and hopefully he will start wanting to crawl around the house. Huge prayers that this will happen would be greatly appreciated:) We are only three weeks from our next trip to California for an intensive round of therapy.
Here's a cute story...my niece said to me last week..."Stace, remember you said when Luke is better we could all go to Disney World ..well I think he is doing pretty good." So cute...the funny thing is before she said this I saw her really checking Luke out. Yes, Miss K Luke is doing pretty good...but a few things he must do before a trip to Walt Disney world is planned:)
I am confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living"

Far and Beyond
"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever"
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
I feel strongly in my spirit that it’s going to be an Ephesians 3:20 decade! God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all we can imagine! Let that take root on the inside. It’s going to be a far and beyond decade. Here’s what that means: you’re going to come into opportunities that will boggle your mind. You’re going to see your career take off like a rocket. You’re going to meet the right people who will help further your dreams. You’re going to accomplish goals more quickly than you imagined. You’re going to come out of debt and pay that house off even though it looked impossible. You’re going to get well even though the medical report says there’s no way. Things may be dark and gloomy around you, but keep your head held high. You have an advantage. You are a child of the Most High God. His face is shining down on you. God is saying it’s not going to be an average decade. It’s not going to be a barely-get-by decade. No, you need to get ready because it’s going to be a decade of favor, a decade of increase, a decade where you accomplish your God-given dreams!
