And so it begins
Here we are, about a week and a half away from an event that will change our big boy’s life forever.
It seemed like just yesterday we were told, Jeffrey will have surgery to stretch his leg when he’s about 6 or 7. Well, in November of 2009 we were asked , “Are you ready to schedule the surgery?” SURGERY? NOW? He just turned 3!!
So, here we are July 10, 2010 trying to jam in as much activity that a 3 ½ year old can take each day. (Well, apparently he can take a lot more activity than mom and dad!) We have something planned almost every day for him to just enjoy being able to run, jump, tackle his brother, kick, climb, swim…and be his energetic self. Once July 21st comes and for about 6 to 8 months after that he will be carried, pushed in a wheelchair/stroller or pulled in a wagon while sporting an external bar fixator attached to his femur with pins.
Everyone has been so great and offering so much support and prayer already.
It’s odd because it really hasn’t hit me yet. I mean, I know it’s coming really fast, but…I don’t know…I think we’ve been so busy that I haven’t had much time to stop and process it all yet.
Well, let the official countdown begin: 11 days from today
