Micah is brilliant! He astonishes us almost everyday with the things he does. He has a photographic memory which is hard to comprehend sometimes. He has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh! He is also very sweet and cares about the safety of his family members. These are things that we know about Micah because of his behavior. We've learned much about Micah the last 3 years watching his behavior. However, there is much we don't know about Micah. We don't know what he enjoyed most about his trip to the zoo or what he wants for a snack when he gets home. We don't know why he crys when he wakes at night. Did he have a bad dream or is he in pain? We don't know these things because he can't communicate them to us. We know that with therapy and biomedical intervention we can help Micah find the words to speak. Please consider supporting Micah and helping us provide what he needs to break out of his silence.

Thank you to those that have been praying for Micah! Also, thank you to those that have given this last week to help with expenses. Thank you Lisa Weber, Susan, Jerry and Penny Swigart, Scott and Kelly Curtright, Roger and Sherida Wittum, Brenda Blanchard, and the anonymous donor! Thank you so much to all of you that have given to help our son!

We would like to send a personal thank you to all that have given donations so please, please, please send your home address to marcacox@cox.net.

We recieved Micah's B-12 shots and the Transdermal Glutathione. So, we will start giving him those this evening. We are still waiting on something from Micah's doctor before we complete the Heavy Metal Test but hopefully we can also do that this week. Micah has been doing better since being back on all of his supplements and prescriptions.

Some of the therapies that we are looking into are Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Cranial Sacral Adjustments, and Speech therapy. It looks like we will be able to go ahead and pursue these things because of the generous help we are recieving from all of you! We are so excited about all of this and look forward to working with the various speech therapists and doctors to help Micah!

Also, soon we plan to start a blog that will follow Micah's progress on his journey and give more information on specific supplements and presciptions that Micah has to take and why. There will also be more information on his therapies and hopefully the progress that he makes with those therapies.

Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your prayers! We are beyond grateful for the doors that are being opened because of your support!

Thank you so much! Thank you Auntie Dianna and Uncle Pete for giving and spreading the word down in Texas! Thank you Karl and Kay Pfeiffer, Larry and Debbie York, and the anonymous donor from Texas! Thank you Shelley Shrader for your donation!

Shelley could you send your address to marcacox@cox.net

For those of you that are praying, we have a new test that we will be doing this week. It's called a DMSA challenge test. DMSA stands for meso dimercaptosucinic acid, which is an FDA approved substance for removing heavy metals from the brain and tissues. Two years ago we found out that Micah has a high mercury load in his little body. We did a little chelation then but have not retested his levels yet. So, this will tell us what the mercury looks like now and how effective this substance would be at removing the heavy metals from his body. It will probably be a couple of weeks before we get results back but I will give an update when we do get them.

Thank you again to those of you who have given. Most of all thank you to those of you who are praying for us as we continue to fight for our son.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was so shocked to see that Micah has alreday recieved $500 dollars this morning! Thank you Kathy and Gary Orr, Tom and Maggie Keehn, Aunt Janet, Grandma Taka and Grandpa Jim, The Fagerlands, and the anonymous donor! We are so grateful for what you have given!

Kathy and Gary, Tom and Maggie, and The Fagerlands, could you send an email to marcacox@cox.net with your home address.

We will be using some of the funds today to order some of Micah's medical supplements. One of the new things we will be doing with Micah are B-12 shots. He will recieve them every 2 or 3 days. And we are able to start those because of your generous gift!

Also, I will be updating later today with a list of Micah's medical and therapy needs with specific costs. I will be giving an update on where Micah is in his progress too (what testing we are currently doing and results from recent tests).

Again, I can't say thank you enough! You have truely blessed our Family!

God Bless,
Nicole

Thank you all so much for your continued support for our son! You are providing for him in so many ways!

I do have a prayer request. Micah has been off of all of his supplements/medication for a week and a half because he must be off of them in order to provide accurate test results for the heavy metal challenge. This has been very hard on him because he's not getting what he needs to function day to day. He has regressed so much just within this last week and it is very apparant how important his supplements and medication are. We should be finishing up his testing soon. So, if you would lift him in your prayers this week and the weeks to come, we would greatly appreciate it!

Marc will be starting a blog for Micah soon. We will be posting much more information there if anyone is interested.

Again, thank you all so much for your prayers and support!!!

Thank you so much to those that have been praying and those that have given this last week!

We just recieved Micah's B-12 shots and Transdermal Glutathione. So, we will start those this evening. Micah has been doing so much better since being back on all of his supplements and presciptions.

Also, we are planning on setting up a blog to keep updates and information on therapies we will be doing. Hopefully we can get that going within the next week! I can only make brief updates on this site and I would like to write more in detail about the things we are doing with Micah.

Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your prayers and support!
