A Bone

The closing sentence of my meltdown post earlier this week was, “Why won’t anyone throw us a bone”. Well a couple of mornings later a huge bone fell on top of us. We got a call from the Canadian Medek Centre verifying our appointments for the following week. Huh? What?

A couple of months ago I had made an appointment for a week of intensive Medek therapy. Then, after we did the muscle testing with the list of therapies, and after our fiasco in San Diego, and after our paradigm shift, we figured we’d better wait to decide if we were really going to go or not. I told the Medek Centre that I’d get back to them to confirm the appointment. Well I’ve been so overwhelmed that I just never got around to confirming or cancelling. Part of me assumed they had canceled our appointments. I found out otherwise when they called us on Wednesday. Since Owen is the one making decisions now, I told him what was going on and asked him what he wanted me to do. Cancel? Go? Honestly, I just relayed the information, with no energy to have an opinion either way. To my surprise he said, let’s go.

So on Thursday I got in touch with the family who told us about the Canadian Medek Centre, whose phone number I’d tried to find many times but couldn’t, and magically appeared on that day while I was cleaning the office closet. They invited us to stay with them. I was able to get super cheap flights. Typically we use miles to fly but this was too last minute. But the flights were unbelievably inexpensive. Everything fell into place.

I’m a big believer in synchronicities and this situation seems filled with them.

So tomorrow we part again to another journey! I thought I would be weary of leaving again and trying yet something else. But I’m actually excited. This was almost the last stone left unturned and I’m glad we’re going to turn it (the last one is stem cells in China). We are open and hopeful and happy to have a chance to get away as a family!

Tomorrow I won’t be able to post but I’ll do my best to post after our first appointment on Sunday.

Thank you for visiting and we hope you have a lovely weekend!


  1. It’s amazing that I would read this today. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about our life and how events have been unfolding. I think that God is guiding a lot of what is happening and when he throws you a bone, you grab it with all you have an you go for it! Hope you enjoy your trip!

    I’m hoping for a little bone myself……….

  2. Hi there!
    Just wondering if you had looked into HANDLE for your little guy? The founder of HANDLE, Judith Bluestone, had a hole in the speech center of her brain, among other neurodevelopmental differences, and she left her mark in the field of education and learning disabilities by developing a program that gently improves neurological efficiency. The website is http://www.handle.org. Nathan is in my prayers!
