Encore on the Road to Recovery

Posted on 12/20/12 110 Comments
Aunty Lynda with Encore in the girlies new big bed -- while Louise & the rest of the gang watches on.

I thought I would share this little video clip of Encore showing off how far she has come. I just put this clip together for “Team Encore” the amazing group of health professionals that have been helping Encore since she first starting seizing last week. Team Encore includes; Dr. Kelly Ciggaar, Dr. Alix Soltan, Dr. Leslie Woodcock, Dr. Andrea Finnen, Dr. Porter and several other key supporters (like Lynda Orton-Hill, Tammy Frank and Louise Lamer). I really did not intend on showing the world this video (as evident with me being in my PJs and not having combed my hair yet:)) . . . but we have had so many now that are a part of  global “Team Encore” I thought I would share it with everyone.

Just five days ago Encore was admitted to the neurology department of the Oakville-Mississauga Emergency Clinic and labeled “unresponsive.” Today Encore continues to impress us all the rather large strides she is taking on her road to recovery. We still have much to conquer but are thrilled with what we have already accomplished.

Thank you to everyone for all of your support and healing prayers. Have an amazing holiday everyone, I know my Christmas wish has come true!

Today I am so very grateful for all of the members of “Team Encore” who saved her life  and for each and every healing prayer that has been sent Encore’s way by this amazing supportive community.

    I just wanted to let you know that the video in this has helped in more ways then you know. I have an epileptic dog who did agility and I had done many of the same foundations as you. Hand touches, body awareness, etc. When he went through bad spells I would also use the techniques you show in your video here to help him through it. However, I thought I was alone in this and just did it because it felt right and seemed to help. So in this alone, you’ve helped me believe in myself. It goes further then that though. I have shared your video on a canine epilepsy group and was surprised by how many people hadn’t thought of doing these basic things. So your journey is now helping others through the same journey and helping lots more dogs then you knew. Thank you!

    Today I am grateful to God for answering prayers of so many including my own for Encore, Susan, John and the many who have been and are providing care. Tomorrow, we celebrate God’s kindness and gentleness in sending Christ as our Savior. He rose from the dead! Encore, is aptly named, an Encore in the celebration of life, love, and our God who hears our prayers even in the midst of despair. You go girl and teach us more! Merry Christmas! Encore!
