We started taking Luke to Dr. Ken Register at Mink Chiropractic and he has already had 3 adjustments. Luke really likes going. He doesn't even flinch when touched or adjusted. He actually likes getting massages, so this is right up his alley. ;)
Ken told Brad on Friday that he is responding well. I know that he found that Luke was pulling to the right side, in the neck and also the hips. (same thing that Magda found in the craniosacral evaluation)
We also started giving him a multi vitamin and a fish oil vitamin after the first visit. I can't say that I have seen a difference, but I am of the school...whatever it takes.
It was suggested by someone that we try one thing at a time, to see what was working and what was the most effective. I am of the belief that I don't care what it is that is causing his language to increase~in all honesty, God is the ultimate healer, the ultimate physician, the ultimate therapist and the ultimate teacher. Through Him, Luke is progressing.*
*Towards the end of the school year we visited a Christian man that has been known to heal people through God. He laid hands on Luke and we all prayed as he prayed over Luke. It was powerful. Luke was still, very calm and even put his hands together, bowed his head and was prayerful. It was so moving. He knew what was happening and he was attentive. At the end of our prayers, Luke got down from Brad's arms and ran like I had never seen him run before. (Remember, he is clumsy and has Dyspraxia of motor movement)
The healer reminded us that his gift of healing wasn't his, it was God's and that we should praise each little sound, each little utterance, each approximation and the words that would come.
So, that is what we are doing...Praising the Lord for our baby steps. We have already come so far.
