New video of Ryan standing ALMOST all on her own:
We are starting fundraising again this weekend. and our goal is to be back (to Nova Cells) by this summer/fall
Ryan’s core strength is MIND BLOWING. She’s breathing so much better and eating all sorts of different foods. She is also writing her name and is able to stabilize her trunk and balance when in a crawling position and when standing. Her legs aren’t doing as much as we hoped, BUT she has gained so much strength in her core and in other places I never even thought of it helping her legs. I know for a fact we wouldn’t be where we are today without your help and the stem cells. Hopefully a 2nd round will do much more.
We love you guys and can’t wait to see you again.
GOD IS GOOD. Love you guys MUCHO!!!!
AND IN A FEBRURY 10, 2014 EMAIL SHELLY HAD THIS TO SHARE WITH NCIM’S GRACE:
I have so much to tell you and show you!
Ryan is moving her legs on her own CONTROLLED!! We’re not walking – but this is a step in the right direction.
Not only that – but she recently had a sleep study to check on her central sleep apnea. Before stem cells, she was having 66 episodes per night. After we Only had 7! They are thinking about taking her off her oxygen!
We hope to see you all again before this fall. I have videos to send but I’m at the gym. I send them when I get home. We love you and hope all is well.
