Greetings Kolstad family!  Molly, it was great to see you at my daughter's benefit a couple weeks ago! I wish I would have had time to come chat, as I feel like we may have some similar stories to share, although Isaac's journey of recovery has been much longer and harder than my daughter's, but there are still some things I can relate to as I read your posts! The memory issues are the big one!  If you ever need to talk, let me know! I know you have lots of support though and the Mankato community is wonderful when it comes to that!  I hope all continues to go well and that I can see you, Isaac and the girls in another ECFE class some day soon!

Isaac it was amazing seeing you today enjoying the weather and the "yard games" with Abe...I stood in the kitchen and watched as you threw the ball thingys on the rope with your right arm.  I couldn't help but lose myself in the in how awesome it was to see you and witness how much you have accomplished...in tears I thanked God for all He has done and how He, along with your determination has helped you to get to where you are today.  Your journey has been long... I have reveled in your accomplishments and progress...I am blessed to have seen it for myself today.  Keep up the good work and know that you remain in my prayers...God bless you!  #22strong

It is great to read the word "Outpatient" - although, hard work continues!  Molly, you need to publish a book from all your journal entries - you are such a great writer and informer!  Isaac, we continue prays for more progress - you have certainly gone "over and beyond" with rapid improvements.  Prayers for each - you are all just so amazingly strong!  Monica and Keith

Issac's improvement is wonderful news for us who have been following your family these last months. I am so happy for you Molly, Issac, and your beautiful daughters. I know you have further to go, and it won't always be easy, but I know you will make it. You are a wonderful family and we will continue praying and thinking about all of you. We have your backs. God bless you.

Molly,

An amazing update! Obviously,#22 has stayed strong and continues to stay strong.  Most of the credit goes to you honey. Without your love, support and positive attitude, I am sure things would be a lot different.
Your daughters are adorable and Isaac looks great in the pictures. With faith and determination, all things prevail.

Hugs, love and prayers to all of you. I hope to meet you all one day!

Isaac and family, how wonderful to hear of this great news!  Your recovery is so remarkable.  I don't even know you, but am so proud of your strength and courage and determination.  I pray for you and your family every day.  We know what it's like to face a medical emergency and all the ups and downs that it entails.  It is not an easy ride, but you are overcoming your challenges, and it is admirable.  Prayers for continued progress and normalcy!  Anything is possible with God.
