Meg's Updates
Update 6/4/12
Posted 10 pm

Meg's halo was removed last Wednesday. She will now have to wear a neck brace for the next 6 to 12 weeks. The halo had been restricting movement in her back and the ability for the DPS (diaphragm pacemaker) to give her deeper breaths. She immediately saw improvements in both of these areas once the halo was removed. She continues to get better movement in her left arm in ever so slight increments. She continued to have nausea issues through all of last week that were hampering additional gains in therapy. They changed their strategy on Thursday and she seemed to be doing better by Saturday afternoon. She has been nausea free since Saturday morning. Today, Meg had one of her best days of therapy yet. She was able to double the amount of time on the FES bike. Afterwards, she felt great with no nausea!

Several of Meg's friends made the trip to Atlanta to see Meg. Shane Loveday, Jenna McCracken, Reily McAndrews, Shelby Hoy, & Kendall Lewis visited with Janine McAndrews & Jenny McCracken traveling with the kids. We were able to take a few excursions off the Shepherd property to a few local restaurants. Meg was excited to see them. Farrah Doman, one of Meg's fantastic dance teachers, visited with her for a few hours this evening. It was great to see Farrah.

As I pray for Meg and many others, I always thank God for the miracles He is performing in Meg's life. Even as I post this today and ask for your continued prayers for Meg and her family, I also want you to be part of the celebration of these continue blessings!!!
Count your blessings today and have a wonderful week. Schools are out in our area for the summer. Enjoy your summer and be careful when you are out and about.
Blessings, love and hugs,

Thankful for each new day that I am given!

    Wonderful! What a strong and positive young woman she is! How nice her friends came all that way to visit. If only more people would open their eyes and hearts to all the miracles around us each day! Most are not as dramatic as Meg's, but they are there. Thanks for always sharing Meg's progress and how God works in your life.
