Report written by the Sobolev Family to LifeNets:
As to a good angel of our family, we would like to tell you about our success and achievements. Excuse us for our long silence. I was at the sanitarium and there was no Internet there.
This year at the sanitarium I defended my bachelor’s diploma. The examination committee came to see me. Even though I was studying through distance learning, the defense of my degree had to be in person. We were in a very encouraged state of mind, since I defended my thesis “Business Project - Computer Club". My work was evaluated as “excellent” and was also noted as a good analysis with a viable proposal.
This has been a great morale booster in our lives. I am now considering my possibilities to furthering my education in a distance learning format.
From the physical side, there is encouraging new. My hands are more confident and I have a greater scope of movement. This is amazing since these are movements that have developed naturally. I have been able to sit easily in bed, move to the side, rise on my elbows and lean over. And then understand that this is a very new development. I wasn’t able to do this. The statement “Movement is LIFE.” And the RIGHT movements make for a healthy life!
We are convinced that that only God’s Will and lots of rehabilitation work will yield good results.
In the sanitarium we have met many people. Everyone has his life and his trial that has strapped them to their bed. And, yet we see God’s mercy in that He has sent people like you. We are beyond words to express this in proper words for the constant concern that we feel.
Let God give you health and strength, patience and endurance in your work.
With great respect,
Sobolev Family and Ivan
Ivan would be very happy to hear from
