It has been awhile since I have posted and I apologize. Things are going well for Dominic at school and on the progress fronts. Dominic's school Physical Therapist ran tests before we left for Germany and when we got back. She said that he has improved in strength and in muscle tone. The muscle tone improvements are important since his tone is so strong that it prohibits him from doing things. So, if we can get it to start relaxing, things could start to happen for him in the small motor groups (fingers, hands, etc).

We are going to see an eye specialist in a couple of weeks and maybe start some eye therapy. Dominic is reading words off of his computer when his aid puts them up. Previously, the letters would jumble up on him and he could not see them.

So, it is small things that are huge to us. His birthday is coming up on the 29th and I need to plan a party. Always something. Hope everyone is doing well and I will try to stay a little more up to date on this blog.


  1. Hi Dominick,

    I am really interested in taking my son to the Xcell-Center but the folks at my sisters job (Cancer Center) are very skeptical. They sent over a few links that I would like to share with you and your family.

    Is it possible for me to speak to you when you have a free moment? I would like to know your experiences at the XCell-Center and if it is worth me taking a trip out to Germany.


  2. Hey!!! My name is Pam. My daughter, Makenzie also has CP. We live in CO and one of her Pt's is Kelly. (she kept telling me about how 2 boys she was treating had gone to Germany but it is so good to finally put a face to your sons story!) We went to Costa Rica in July for Stem Cells and have seen some amazing improvements in Makenzie since then as well! I just wanted so say hi and tell you how amazing I think you son is! My daughters story is at www.makenziesmiracle.blogspot.com! I would love to chat sometime about stems cells and your experience in Germany! Feel free to e-mail me at makenziesmiracle@comcast.net!
