Summer Fun (Week 24)

Ethan is having his fixator removed on July 9th.  We are super happy and counting down the days!!!  It's been fun but we are ready for it to come off.  PT has been a ton better but still wishing we were doing PT in Florida.  I sure miss Ms. Yvette and Ms. Emily!!!   He is working really hard on his heel toe motion and bending the knee.  He is also getting around without the walker but that will change come July 9th. We are hoping that it doesn't take him long to get back on his feet after the month off from not bearing weight. 

Daddy is still doing pin cleaning and I'm enjoying the time off!!!  What are we going to do with that extra hour after the fixator comes off?  I can assure you we will not miss it for a second!!!  We are also looking forward to visiting the community pool!  Going out to dinner and not worring about rushing home for stretches and pin cleaning.  We are going to have fun!!!

Lilly had her fixator removed a few weeks ago.  Mariel had her fixator removed over a month ago and she is also doing well.  Sophia, Claire and Eyal don't have a date for removal.  Abby is scheduled for the week after!  I'm sure they are more than ready.  We sure miss our friends.  We are all getting closer to the finish line and all very excited. 

Ethan and Abby have had 2 play dates since being home.  They are still engaged.  You can see the video on my Facebook account. 

Please say special prayers for our friends Emily, Aubrey and mommies!  They are having a challenging time and will get more challenging as the days go by.  Please pray for strength for the mommies and the kids as they continue the lengthening procedure.

Liddy is going home and has been a rock star!  She gained 6 inches!!!!  We are sad we wont get to see her but happy she gets to go home. 

I will let you know how the surgery goes and how our month long of not bearing weight!  Fun stuff but it's all worth it if that means that we are getting closer to the end of our journey.

Thanks again for all the love and support!
