One Month Out

He did it. We did it. Sylas had his surgery one month ago today. And he is doing so well!

He spent one week on the surgical floor before moving to the rehab floor where he and I have made our home ever since. He is getting 5-6 therapy sessions every weekday, stretching and stengthening muscles he has never used before. Yesterday he stood for the first time since the surgery and he had straight legs, a talk back and heels on the floor. So good! In a few minutes I'm off to join him in physical therapy as he tries to take his very first post op steps!

Thank you all for your love, prayers and encouragement during this time. 

P.s. Here's a little video Ryan put together to keep himself busy during the 8 hour surgery.

Superhero in Surgery

Sylas is in surgery now. 

We made it to Oakland last night but with all of the cancellations it didn't feel real until he was wheeled into the operating room this afternoon.




Then I cried.

He is so brave and seeing as it's National Super Hero Day, I think it's a great day for surgery.

No Surgery Today

We are in limbo.

About an hour into our drive to Oakland yesterday, we got a call that we were once again being rescheduled.

Of course we are so thankful that our son isn't the one in need of emergency surgery. So SO thankful. But we are emotionally exhausted.

And still waiting for a new date. 

Thank you for your continued love and prayers.
