Happy New Year to all of our supports....I wanted to give you a brief update as to what has been happening over the last several months...first of all, i want to apologize for not updating sooner, I myself as Devon's mother had some major brain surgery in May and have been in and out of the hospital ever since, Thank you to the great healer above, I am on the mend and doing very well....as for Devon and Rain, they are wonderful...Devon is seeing a new pediatric Neurologist who is amazing...he now has him from 11 pills a day for his Epilepsy to 2 pills a day and he has only had 2 seizures in the last 2 months and Rain is doing her job....Devon calls her his guardian angel....she will not let him out of her sight...the bond between the two is amazing as you can tell in the pictures i have just posted...her training is not complete so we are continuing the fundraising to help with the costs of training....we are looking at having to take her to Florida or California to a specialized trainer and the costs are looking close to anywhere from $7,000 - $10,000 if not more....talk about falling out of your chair but the Lord has blessed us with this wonderful miracle that has saved my son twice now since we have gotten her and he has blessed us with all of you who have made it possible so we will continue on our journey with Rain so that when Devon is on his own one day, she will be fully trained to be able to assist him when his father and myself are not available....Devon and Rain have been asked by the TN Epilepsy Foundation to go to Washington DC April 20-24 to represent the state of TN to do the National Walk for Epilepsy on April 20 and to go to the Capital and talk to the representatives about his Epilepsy and how it has affected him, his life, and his everyday struggles....I will also get to talk to the representatives regarding how its affected the family and friends....this is such a great honor to represent ALL Epilepsy patients not just TN.....Devon is psyched about going and yes, Rain will be going as well.....I want to say "Thank you" to all of you for making it possible for us to be able to get Rain she truly is a blessing...you all have opened your hearts and your wallets to make this possible and no matter the size of the donation, we cant express how much we appreciate it...DONATIONS:
Donations are still being excepted for Rains extensive training that she is fixing to go through....the account at the bank has been closed due to inactivity but the paypal account is still open for his funding...if you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me at [email protected]
Now that i am back on the mend and working toward getting my health back in order, i will be updating more often...please keep your eyes pealed for new postings and new pictures...
God Bless each and everyone of you, we love you all!
