Feeling blessed and surrounded by miracles

The last little while has been a little tricky with Owen. He has been really good and then all the sudden he's not. I am pretty sure he likes to make sure we are paying attention!

About 3 weeks ago I noticed a pressure sore on his tailbone area. My heart sank because those are not good anywhere, but right there I knew would be tricky. I did want I had been told to do previously and then made a little donut for his bottom.

His doctor told me to keep a close eye on it and send pictures to keep them posted. I use duoderm, and since he isn't immersed in water for a bath it stays on for awhile. I thought I would take pictures each time the duoderm came off to compare any progress or worsening of the sore.

The second time it came off I was getting ready to send more pictures when I realized something about the sore wasn't right. I felt it and it felt like a scab. I softly scraped at it and it came off!!
The sore was gone and completely healed!  I could not believe it! I still have a hard time believing it went away only after about a week and a half. I knew right then that I had just witnessed a miracle!

I was giddy the entire day! I couldn't help but feel my Heavenly Fathers' love for Owen and our whole family. I know that Owen is watched over day and night very closely by loving angel hands sent from above.

He shaved!!

The last few weeks have been very humbling to me! Lenn's idea to see if we could raise money for SMA research, started an outpouring of support from many of you. Not only did we meet our goal but went above and beyond. Our grand total is $1325!! That is amazing! I really wondered if we would even reach $500.

Thank you to all who donated to support our fundraiser to not only shave Lenn's beard, but to aid in finding a cure for SMA. We got all the money in the mail this week and I am really excited and hopeful for what it might do.

Again THANK YOU, to all of you who donated!! We would like to give you a little something as a thank you, so if you donated without letting us know please message one of us, text or get a hold of us somehow.
