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

Celebrating Life

At SPICES Resource Center

It's exactly 5 years since John's near drown accident, we see how "I think he may not survive" to him walking, laughing, crying and enjoying life. He's still unable to do a lot of things but you'll see him try. It's "easy" to work with him cause he can be motivated as he too wants to be strong, communicate and have friends, play games etc. He too has a dream; to be able to play against Datuk Lee Chong Wei in a game of badminton! What a dreamer.! Well if you don't have dreams, how can you make your dreams come true = taken from the movie South Pacific.
After HBOT we didn't do much other therapy; instead we are training him to wash up and put on his own pants etc. which actually takes up a lot of time. Usually we'll do a lot of things for him as we hurry to appointments. But now our therapy is just going to SPICES every Thursday, private OT on alternate weeks, UMMC OT and PT on appointment, we need not rush in the mornings.
As a teenager he notices pretty girls (even with cortical vision impairment!), which can be embarrassing for me ! At times he also gets tired of praying. . . . . that's when I remind him we're doing all we can and able to, we don't know how to help him anymore than this; so if we don't pray we have no hope.  "I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth" Psalm 121:1-2.  More than anything else he has to learn and know that his source of help and hope is in the Lord Jesus. I'm glad there's no entrance exam to enter Heaven; only faith in Jesus who is The Way, The Truth and The Life. (Jn 14:6)
