Scoliosis surgery

Noah in his sister Mercy's room looking for trouble- LOL!

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.

 Silly boy rocks in bed and his hair is permanently "fuzzed" out from it. Try as we might to keep it long and cute! (here chewing on little sister Mercy's fave toy! yikes!)

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.

 Holding hands and "walking" with sister Kitty who is 2 weeks younger than him! :o)

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.

Noah climbing into the chair on his own.

He will be 70 miles away with Dad. And he will want to come home.

 Oh sweet boy, if only I could fix this for you. So that you wouldn't have to go through all of the things you won't understand.

I'm not sure why he likes this toy up-side-down??

 He's grown quite a bit. Size 7 to 8 shirts. Size 7 pants. He's a teenager. He even has a teen attitude. :o)

He loves loves loves his life. Smiling, laughing. He is interested in anything he sees. He never meets a stranger.
Four years ago we could not have imagined the blessing he is to our family!
Please pray for Noah.
