Dr. Nemeh’s office is an hour's drive and just as we were getting bundled up to leave our house, his office called to say that he was still in a session with a patient and that there was another patient before Kevin waiting. They called back an hour later and then we were on our way. It was very convenient not to have to entertain Kevin in the waiting room for over an hour. Dr. Nemeh came into the treatment room about 4:45 pm and his session lasted over an hour.
Kevin instantly had a big smile for Dr. Nemeh and got up to shake his hand. Dr. Nemeh said he remembered Kevin well and asked why we waited so long to come back. During the treatment, he talked about some other blessed kids/young adults like Kevin and how they have gained abilities they never had before with his treatment. He also reflected on Kevin’s good spirit.
Dr. Nemeh began scanning Kevin with his device and then proceeded into treatment. Overall, he said Kevin was in good health but he asked if Kevin had falls. Kevin most recently had a bad fall down the steps just before Christmas. Dr. Nemeh said his back (spine) and head were affected from these falls and that his treatment would help. Dr. Nemeh also noted Kevin’s bloated belly and said the treatment would help that as well - by the end of the session, Kevin’s belly was soft again. Part of the treatment involves this device that looks like a vibrating drum that he holds on the bottom of Kevin’s feet and body - Kevin loves it! It was about this time in the treatment that Kevin began getting vocal and making sounds. Many of you know his ups and downs with sounds. Recently the the vocal sounds have been few and far between - so it was music to our ears to hear Kevin making so many sounds. Sometimes it really looked like he had something to say. It was about halfway through the session that you could see how relaxed Kevin was feeling and by the end it looked as if he may even fall asleep.
Kevin wasn’t the only one feeling relaxed - yesterday morning did not begin the way I had envisioned. Jon has been under some additional stress; Kevin had one of his vomit episodes during breakfast and while I was trying to get him to the bathroom in time, my pot of soup was boiling over on the stove - it was one of those mornings! But Jon and I both felt a real sense of peace during the visit. We’re not sure if that is just from being in the presence of this peaceful man with his beautiful pictures Christ, Mother Mary, and Saints on his walls - or from all your powerful prayers. But when we returned home about 7:30pm - all three of us went to bed with pleasant dreams.
Speaking of sleep - I have to share an amusing story that Friend shared with me. Friend had taken a friend to see Dr. Nemeh and during the session said to Dr. Nemeh - if you are too tired to continue and need a rest, I can come back at another time - Dr. Nemeh said “I am praying”. During the treatment, there are times when it looks as if he falls asleep, but if you watch closely you will see his hands moving ever so slightly and of course feel the peace.
At the end of our session, Dr. Nemeh suggested getting an infrared light to use on Kevin’s left foot and head and also recommended that we return for another treatment in 8 weeks.
I keep all your kind words close to my heart and reread them when I need a little extra support during my day.
I wanted to share a few reflections that were shared with me.
"God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power and love and a sound mind.” - I interpret that as hopefulness and positiveness.
Matthew 7:7-12 "Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you....if you know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him."
Psalm 138 "..the Lord is with me to the end.”
