I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools water and the parched ground into springs. I will put in the desert the ceder and the acacia, the myrthle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

Isaiah 41:18-20

My art work

This is John's first piece of 'art' work after the accident.
He's lost his ability to hold a pencil or crayon. He did this using a special crayon called a palmer crayon (it's at the bottom right hand side of the photo.)

John's classmates would know that he was bad in 'pendidikan seni'. Well ...it's still 'bad'. At the present moment he still does not have the wrist movement but used his whole arm to colour. It'll take a lot of practice before he can write with a pencil again but at least with this piece he held on to the crayon and did this on his own.

Crawling all over.

We're at SPICES in Wangsa Maju. We go there every wednessday for about 2-3 months now. Here you see us crawling all over, john having fun with the wide floor space. Some may ask why make a walking boy crawl? Ans: Walking co-ordinates the legs but crawling requires co-ordination of both arms and legs. Works the brain a bit more.
Mind you it took quite an effort before he found the fun of crawling. When we 1st introduce the toy he would just stand up and walk over to get the ball. We had to help him co-ordinate his arms more before he could move!

Ya... john enjoys his bicycle more than the 'horse'. Yesterday we started his 81st HBOT (oxygen therapy) session. We had to delay it for 2 weeks cos he had a cold and then passed it to mom! Fyi:- A cold can block your ears and when under pressure like in HBOT chamber it can cause earache.
It's a minor set back but we're back on the trail.
