Hello everyone, my name is Isabella Parker and I have OI. I am 2.5 years old now. I have had 25 fractures since birth. My favorite things are dancing, Dora, Elmo, and playing with my brothers. I just got a new wheelchair and I am able to get around now by myself. I am trying to stand now and I am weight bearing on my legs. 

I still get my Pamidronate infusions every 8 weeks at Lebonheur they are now one day treatments instead of three days. I also go to Omaha Children's Hospital every year to visit their OI clinic and visit oi specialist. I will be getting rods for my legs soon and hopefully they will allow me to walk.

I understand that alot of people are praying for my me and I want all you you to know how much I appreciate it. Without all of you, I may not have had much of a chance. There is no power greater than prayer.

Watch for updates from them in my journal as things seem to change from day to day.
