Oh Axel

Almost two years ago, when I met you for the first time, it never occurred to me I'd your mother just a few short months later. Never would I have dreamed I'd watch you suffer through some of the things we've had to "fix" for you. Back in November when you started having problems I dreaded the thought of having to repeat it all, and tell you that dreaded halo was in your future again. I was dreading having that contraption around for another summer!

But today we got great news! We learned the pain you're feeling is a pretty normal part of the healing process, particularly for a boy who's grown nearly 5 inches in the 8 months since the surgery was done! (and gained 21 lbs!)

I can't wait until this summer Axel, to show you all the fun things it will bring!

What WONDERFUL news! So sorry that he is in pain, but so glad that it means he is growing and thriving! :) Looking forward to watching him explore and learn more new things. :)
