My name is Nick Dennen, and my TBI was in 1998.  Could someone in the Kolstad family please email me at (Dennen23 @ aol.com)?  I have a similar experience and would love to share a few of the things I've learned over the last 16 years so I can give you my website.  I don't want anyone to think I am using Isaac's page for anything other than his full recovery!  Thank you so much, in advance, for contacting me (I hope)!  Keep up the good fight, Isaac and family!!!

Happy Birthday Isaac!! - You are a huge inspiration with your steady+++ progress.  Molly, again, your journal entry is marvelous - you need to publish a book for others who began with little hope - and progressed to this point.  Blessings to all of you for a glorious Christmas - praising God for his goodness!!

Happy 25th birthday Issac! You are truly one amazing young man! I watched your interview with Mike Max, and you were awesome (Molly, you are awesome too and adorable) What a beautiful family. The love shows so much! Wishing you and your family the blessed of holidays this year and may 2015 bring nothing but joy and happiness to all of you!

Dear Isaac,

I have been hearing about your successes while I was in Minnesota on my farm this summer.  I would hear updates on Chanel 12 from Mankato.  I live about 30 miles South of there.  I have had my United Methodist  Church in Winnebago praying for you, and I still continue praying for you to be completely healed.  I am now in Dallas Texas for the winter, and I do not hear much about how you are doing.  I finally was able to find your CaringBridge information, and am glad to hear the news about how you are doing.

I am so pleased to hear about your strength and powerful determination.  God has given you lots of Grace, and you are a wonderful example of His love and care.

Continue to be strong,

Rachel and Issac, It is thrilling to learn about BOTH you and the progress EACH of you are making. 
Rachel I went to school with your father at Wilson Campus School Mankato-when it was "the OPEN SCHOOL".  
Everyone in your family has been amazing with their faith in Issac's recovery and willingness to help Issac do his very best.
God is definitely with you on this journey...and you are both doing exactly what is supposed to be done each day with God's help.
Tell Marti Hi for me!  Bless you all,
Penelope (Penny) Simmons

 Such an inspiring journal entry!  Your last sentence says it all!  Hope Isaac finally got to eat his apple crisp - he had the right idea - but, the wrong sequence. It shows that he's trying very hard and success will come in time for many things. The support of the football team is a huge ++ and am sure the players appreciate his encouragement and advice.   Prayers continue for all of you.  Monica and Keith

OH MY!!!!!!!!!! Doubt that most of us could begin to keep up with all this multi-tasking and schedules.  Isaac, plus the rest of you have to be exhausted - but, in the end - Wow.. such progress!!  It continues to be so very rewarding to read your Journal Entries.  You all are getting strength from God.  Loved the Halloween Kats!!  Adorable!  It is great that Isaac is visiting and encouraging others - We're certain that his "mission" is so much appreciated and will help them "see light at the end of the tunnel"!  It is very easy to get discouraged and to have Isaac visit is such a blessing to many!  Prayers continue - Monica and Keith

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
