How fitting that today Axel woke up full of smiles and energy. He's now sitting in his room, singing along to a Signing Time CD, just smiling away. He feels GREAT! He is walking well (so I'll be taking that walker back to Shriners in June!) and is off all pain meds.
So, later today I'm taking him out for a BIG surprise! I'm almost as excited to see his face as he is going to be to get the surprise.
