This therapy/medicine gives her body 15 times the penetration of oxygen intake then under normal conditions. Helping with her growing more veins in the brain, turn on or grow new neuron, and assist with her brain to obtain a better plasticity to its improvements. She is walking with one person assistant, making better use of her arms and legs. She is eating three meal a day by mouth, having her g-tube removed. She is working on talking with saying HI, DAD, YA, and NA. All of these improvements are a direct relation to her getting HBOT therapy.
