HBOT - lets go!

Today we went to meet with another Doctor who administers the HBOT therapy that we have been researching for Walker.  It was so nice to meet a Doctor who has first hand experience with how this type of therapy can help.  She has a 13 year old daughter with Cerebral Palsy and has seen how it can make a positive improvement to the quality of life for some individuals.

As I have posted before, we are not seeking a miracle. we are not expecting Walker to tango out of the tank, but we are hopeful that we can bring the true Walker to the surface a little faster.  Just to hear him mutter mama, or give a kiss would be the greatest gift I could ask for! I am trying not to get my hopes up to high, this center is only an hour drive away so we will be able to travel there each day.  Our plan is to take Walker every day, Monday through Friday for the first 20 sessions and then go from there.  Everything I read, suggests at least 40 sessions, but Ramiah and I would like to see how it goes, sort of play it by ear.  20 sessions would be four weeks as well as a good chunk of change.  None of these sessions will be covered by insurance since it is still considered "experimental". 

I will keep a diary of how it goes and post updates as they come. Please send all your positive vibes our way!!
