Cody sustained a drowning as well as a four
hour surgery, that left him in a C spine Curvature, his head was
contracted to the right side and touching his right shoulder, his
hands were pined to his chest, his body was completely ridged .He
had globle brain damage which caused CP.
When he went to school there wasn't any
interaction with him.
We started HBOT treatments, and within the
first month he was more responsive to his teacher. He followed
directions more consistently and was more alert. One Very noticeable
change is that Cody was less reactive to loud noises and was
tracking sounds more frequently, which shows his ability to move.
Remember he couldn't move his head at all. He started looking left
daily. He showed a 48% level of independence from January 29 until
February 22, from February 23 until March 13 he had a 70% increased
in turning his head to the left when asked . The goal of Raising his
head went from 45% to 63% during the same time. At this writing we
have 81 treatments behind us, Cody is not having the emesis problem
and we are working on eating by mouth, he can say mama, nana, by-by,
and no ,of - course this is when he wants to.
We know that without the HBOT treatments Cody
wouldn't be showing this kind of response this quickly, according to
his neurologist ,he is suppose to be in a progressive vegetative
decline, and HBOT wouldn't help at all. A good part of the doctors
treating Cody were in favor of the HBOT. To see how it would help
him recover from his injury.
The school administrator is pleased with his
development for working with him on the computer with the visual
His motor movements have increased greatly in
the time of HBOT.
We don't know what we would have done with out
Susan, Pat Rodriguez & Dr. Underwood, for their guidance with
the HBOT and nutritional assistance.
With Great Admiration
Cody, Bryan & Ruth
