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!
