It's either a miracle or a miracle. An update on Asher.
I think it's a miracle. Well, yesterday was the big day for baby Asher. He had his doctor's appointment at Shriner's. The doctor there said Asher has a brachial plexus injury. The brachial plexus is a complex network of interconnecting nerves that innervate the arm from the shoulder to the hand. This is why he is unable to move his arm thoughout it's full range. The doctor said it has a good chance of resolving on it's own and he should gain full mobility. We also saw an occupational therapist yesterday who gave us some exercises to do with Asher. I'm thankful that I have been trained in physical therapy so I can do all his therapy at home and we don't have to make any additonal appointments. The doctor said there are NO problems with his bones. NOTHING is underdeveloped in his shoulder. I just want to thank everyone again for fasting and praying. I'm so grateful! We feel so blessed and we love you all.
He's a Grad student. He makes pots. He likes hunting and hanging out with his boys. You can visit his blog at www.checkoutmyblogatmyblog.blogspot.com (or click the picture).

Asher helps me develop faith. He has a nerve injury on his right arm. He also has trouble gaining weight. He sees an occupational therapist 2 times a week. He is sweet and shy but has a funny personality.
this is our story.
i called him. he said yes. he kissed me. i said, "i love you." he said, "i like you twelve." (that equals i love you.) he said "will you?" i said, "yes". we got married. he started school. we had noah. i became a mom. he became an artist. we moved to pa. he became a grad student. then came asher and i became the mom of 2. we moved back to utah. he became a teacher. me? the mom of three. we are happy. we are blessed.
