Little Man has his new leg and it literally is out of this world! It fits great, looks cool, and he is walking more than ever. We are so thankful for the folks at Shriners hospital for all they do to help our guy live to his full potential. They bend over backwards to helps us crazy people who live half way around the world and travel in for medical care. We are blessed to have them as our medical team. In their great care for our guy and setting up what he will need next, his doctors let us know that he probably will need another surgery next summer. It shouldn’t be as big of a deal as his bone reduction last summer, but due to his super growth, bone spurs are something we will have to look forward to. We are keeping that in the back of our minds, and thinking that we may have another summer stateside in the near future.
Once Little Man was running on a new leg we were able to check a few other things off our to do list this summer. Dental appointments down. Eye exams and new glasses. Soccer Dude’s follow-up and a minor outpatient surgery is done. Lots of grilling, a bit of camping. Many lovely visits with friends and family in the memory books. Another year of homeschool supplies loaded into suitcases. The grand finale was two days of travel. We are now home and can I just say….there is nothing like sleeping in my own bed!
It has been a busy summer! Now we are ready to settle back into our day to day lives. We are taking the next week to rest and get over jet lag then we will start at it again. Hubby can’t rest for to long – He has a trip scheduled for Thursday to look at the new campus in our city. His university is moving! It might prove to be a crazy fall with many new twists and turns as the university gets settled in their new location. We will keep you posted as it develops.
Thanks for lifting us up this summer. We are so blessed to have the support of so many! Blessed.
