Zak's Appointment

Many have contacted me and asked me how the doctor's appointment went for Zak this past week. I am sorry that I have not been able to post; but we had to leave town here this past weekend due to a family emergency. I am sorry about the delay.

Zak's appointment went VERY well on Thursday. We met with a DAN! doctor. (That is a defeat autism now doctor). He was wonderful and Zak seemed to really like him.

He spent over 2 hours with us. Going through documents and charts. He was very detailed. He has put Zak on a Gluten Free / Casein free diet. He also ordered a whole range of tests that he wants done. We will get him in for lab work this week. We should hear something from those in about three weeks or so. Until then, we will be vigilant about his diet and see if there is any improvement in the next several weeks.

Please pray! It has been very difficult these past several weeks! Zak has had more challenges than we have ever encountered before. We are praying for wisdom and guidance from the Lord. Praise the Lord He knows!!

Thanks so much for all your prayers. They are a blessing to us. We will go in for his evaluation this Friday. This will be for his therapy and to get started training me on how to do the therapy with him. I am excited about this next step - as I feel we will see a lot of improvement because of the ABA therapy.

Hey Marty!

It's Shirley! My Thomas has been GF/CF for 2 1/2 years. The diet and many supplements we have him on have helped him tremendously!!! He has also had ABA therapy each week since Jan 07 and in one year he has gained between 1 1/2 - 2 years in many of his area's of weekness. He advanced in every area but is still not at an almost 7 year old level. However this year he is functioning very well in Kindergarten! It is exciting to see the progress!! If you need some help with the diet let me know, I'd be happy to share what I have learned!! Love ya!
Shirleychef I don't use my hotmail email account anymore. The start of my email address is the same as the hotmail, just change it to and you'll be set! Hope to hear from you!
