We are sorry to hear of this seizure.  It had to be terrible for Isaac and thankful that he was transferred to the hospital and being monitored.  This had to make all of you especially nervous - glad his mother was with him, but, am sure it was terribly hard for her!  - just when you are on a "good path" - then, something else surfaces.  Hope the meds will control further seizures. Again, a test of our faith!  Prayers continue!

Thanks, Molly - Wow.. what a week.  Our local TV station (KIMT - Mason City, Ia) had your interview on - wonderful interview!!  We see the word: "home" in this entry - and pray that God will give Isaac the power to overcome some obstacles and his brain will reconnect to his right arm.  As always - blessings to each of you - keeping you strong  You, Isaac and your family are sooo amazing!!  Monica and Keith Pletcher

What a wonderful post. I overheard people talking at the Gopher football game about Isaac and his appearance at the Mankato game, how amazing his recovery has been, and their hopes for his continued healing. Your post shows that you are understanding the work his brain is doing to establish pathways so Isaac's right side can recover. It may take patience which Isaac doesn't realize he has. Have Isaac check out Jack Jablonski's story on caring bridge. Those two guys could cheer each other on. Don't give up...praying hard for all of you!!!

God Bless you Isaac and Molly. I have just followed the story. Heartbroken to see the struggle and pain Isaac is going through. Having those babies to cheer him up will also help his recovery. The babies will be a comfort for him and to be proud. I am so thankful for modern medicine and his great doctors. It appears he has a wealth of loving family and friends to assist him in this long recovery. Best of Luck to you, young Kolstads. May God continue to bless you all each day with great progress. Isaac will be back to playing football I predict in less than 2 years from now. I just know it. Isaac, reach for that goal!!! I am praying for you, buddy! I understand the frustration of delays from injuries, but not to the extent of what you have endured and suffered. You are a REAL man!! I am more than twice your age. I could never endure what you have suffered through, young man. I'm requesting God to send His Healing Angels to you when I recite my Rosary tonight. Each time I have asked for them, I hear about it, so I have faith they will come help you. Keep interacting with those cute little babies. They will help you tremendously in many ways and keep your spirits high. I'm so glad you have so many friends around you who love you to get well quicker. God Bless you, Isaac and Family. Always remember that God has a destiny and a plan for you. His plan is perfect. We play parts in which we teach others and they teach us. This was not your lesson to learn. The Lord is making others face Karma and most likely training the doctors involved. Everything that happened, God had a purpose. Your struggles will not go unrewarded, I know.  God bless you!   -

Molly,
I can't begin to express my happiness at seeing the amazing progress that Isaac has made. I was the nurse that took care of him in the ER that awful morning. When I met you I was so impressed with your strength. I've followed Isaac' s progress through Caringbridge closely and it makes me so happy to see the great strides that he has made. I prayed for you all from the moment I met Isaac and continue to pray that Isaac continues his remarkable recovery.
Thank you for updating this site and for allowing the world into a very personal and private part of your lives. Stay #22 Strong like you always have. You are a rock.

We can feel your excitement as we read today's entry.  Wow.. what a day he had in Mankato -football + seeing friends + meeting nurses and Drs. that were caring for him when his life was uncertain.  I'm sure seeing his amazing progress gave them great pride that they played a part in bringing him to this point.  We always look forward to your entries.  We'll now pray that Isaac's frustrations putting his thoughts into words will come soon.  Each day gets you that much closer to being home.  God's Speed !! Monica and Keith

I met Blaine and Isaac the first day they were here. I then went out for surgery
for five days. When I returned I was stunned by the progress Isaac had made.
The therapist here are all the top in their field. I will be leaving soon and could
not have done it with out them. Isaac will go a long way here.
I might say it has been a long time since I have seen a family so tight.
It has been my pleasure to know them.
