"We are going to focus on LIFE for Katya. I believe, one day, she will amaze the world."

Dr. Ben Carson on Katya Dueck

Saturday, November 7, 2015


Katya has finally, finally turned the corner and is enjoying good health again, much to the relief of her Doctors at Johns Hopkins, here local primary care practice, and of course, to us!

She first went back to school last week on Friday as kind of a trial run--Friday's at her school are a bit shorter days and then she had the weekend to rest and recharge. She was greeted with loud clapping, cheers and yells when she arrived at the school van that day! Everyone was SO happy to see her after such a super long absence!

When she got home, she looked absolutely exhausted and was very eager to go to bed that night. We are still needing to make sure she gets more sleep than she did before her surgery but the amount she is generally requiring has overall gotten a little less so that is good.

By Monday she was thankfully rested up and ready to go back to school. She had a very successful first full week back at school and now is enjoying the weekend.

We are so very grateful to God for restoring her to health! We are also thankful for the expert care she received from her Doctors both at Hopkins and here in Ohio. Additionally, we are very thankful to know about things to do to help build her immune system and improve her overall health.

Our weather took a turn for warmer this week, and that has helped relieve Chad's asthma so at the moment, we are enjoying overall better health at our house. VERY thankful for it!
