Whitney Cerak

We, the Cerak family, are elated beyond description at Whitney’s return home. It is so much more than we ever imagined three months ago.We would like to restate our plans of not speaking to the media. There is still much on the road to Whitney’s full recovery. We want to thank the media for the respect they have shown of our privacy in this time. And ask that the same courtesy given us would be extended to our family and friends.

Psalms 33:18-22
But the eyes of the Lord areon those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep him alive in famine. We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shieild. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

The phrase unfailing love means so much to me and it means so much to God because He used it 27 times in the Psalms alone. I'm so thankful for his unfailing love because mine has gone thur periods of fading or divided love but Gods love toward me has been constant. It is what we all desire and what God desires to give us, his children, his unfailing love. I look at Whitney with a mothers love and it amazes me that Gods love is so much deeper than our earthly love.

Whitney had a great Saturday. We were able to get away and Sandra and Matt were able to join us on their day off from Spring Hill. Saturday started Whitneys favorite way by sleeping in. A Saturday morning tradition continues of homemade(out of the box) blueberry muffins. The smell wakes them up with a smile. It was a really warm day so we were able to hang out at a pool for a couple of hours. We have to be careful not to get too much sun as the medication Whitney is on makes her sensitive to the sun. We got enough to give us a little color and make us look healthy. We orderd pizza then went to see "Pirates of the Carribean". Whitney ended her night laying on the grass looking up at the stars. Perfect ending to a fun day.

Love, Whit's mom

Dear Cerak Family,

I noticed in a People article that Whitney will require months of antibiotics for an infection in her leg. It is possible she would benefit from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Many doctors don't take the time or interest to propose this to their patients but it is an awesome and powerful treatment for wound/infection healing and in Whitney's situation it is an insurable diagnosis. Also, it is great for healing brain injury and boosting the immune system overall.

I am a parent who has done 140 treatments with my daughter after a birth injury causing cerebral palsy. The hyperbaric chamber is also used for diabetic wound management, cellulitis, multiple sclerosis, fetal alcohol syndrome, ADD, autism, reflex sympathetic disorder and fibromyalgia.

I hope this information could be of value to you.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like any additional information. I am sure you have a chamber in your local hospital that is used for burn victims and other diagnoses.

Blessings to your family,

Carole Rosen

Oh, that sounds like so much fun! I'm on vacation right now at the grand resort of the parents house just revelling in the fact that I get to hang out with them and the dog and even their noisy but hysterically funny bird. In all of this, I can see that you are all truly treasuring this time that you are spending together, in spite of the reasons for it. I love hearing about Whitney's progress, and appreciate the encouragement that it provides! Love you all!

Reading that she ended the day by looking up at the stars almost made me cry. I cannot imagine what it does for you and your family to witness each thing that we all take for granted. God Bles you.
