Early October, much to our great sadness, we came home. We had had the best vacation ever- 7 weeks in the Woods.
Once home our calendar was FULL, physical appointments, dentist visits and scheduling our PT and OT appointments. For 14 of us!
This was going to be the year Noah walked with some kind of assisted device. That was our goal. He's bigger, stronger and ready! We've tried everything we know of to help him. So now we're going to set up a network online (from his OT/PT) for suggestions from other Children's Clinics.
We had noticed something about Noah's back over the summer. We've had other kids with crooked spines and Scoliosis. But this did not look like anything we'd seen before. And since his last growth spurt after turning 13, this was something we were concerned about.
We were right to be concerned. It's Scoliosis. Its quite severe and will require several surgeries. :o( Noah is not going to like this.
Walking will be on hold indefinitely.
He will be 70 miles away with Dad. And he will want to come home.
Four years ago we could not have imagined the blessing he is to our family!
Please pray for Noah.
