Rejoice!

Just wanted to update everyone on the doctor appointments. Great news...Regan's curve is better! It improved from 67% to 54%. So, right now now surgery. We will go back in three months and see where she is at then. Right now we think the brace is working. He also came up with the idea of shooting some botox in her shoulder and in the tops of her feet to help the muscle relax. The pulmonologist said her lungs sound clear. That is great news as well. For those of you who have been on this journey for along time know that we don't have many appointments that tell us she is doing better. Scripture tells us that we grieve with those who grieve and rejoice with those who rejoice. You get lots of chances to practice the grieving part..So today REJOICE!

YES!! I wanted to call to hear how it went, but I figured you'd have lots of phone calls and that you'd eventually post about it.
That's incredible! Me of little faith, I hadn't even considered that she might not even need surgery! I'm so excited for her, and what a relief for you all!
Oh man, I was up Thursday night at 1 in the morning (ok, technically friday) sitting in my bathroom (away from my sleeping husband) praying for Regan and crying because I felt so bad for what she would have to go through.
I suppose this should teach me not to be so surprised when God answers prayers.
YES!!

That is WONDERFUL news! I've heard your story via Julie Russell, and met you at her wedding. It is good to hear the brace, and even more importantly the prayers are producing positive results. Praise Jesus!
