Elijah and Shriners!

Recently Elijah was accepted into Shriners we feel very blessed that his care will be taken care of so well. So far he has had his first appointment of meeting the Doctor and figuring out what Elijah will need. Last Monday he had a 2 1/2 hour appointment of what is called a "gait analysis." Amazing what technology that they have. Elijah loved the robot they made of him on their computer. Below is a picture that they took of him with all of the "muscle phones" attached to him and the video reflectors. Elijah goes back to Shriners in a week for a PT & OT evaluation. He will also go in on the 9th of April for a surgery. Basically they will be lengthening a muscle in his left ankle area. (Hopefully to help the foot not turn inward so much) Elijah will spend two nights in the hospital and be in a walking cast for 4 weeks following it.
(okay I know a bad picture - it was a print out from Shriners and I scanned it)

Draper Temple Open House

Friday Night we had the opportunity to go to the Draper Utah Temple Open House. My sister Esther stayed with Sariah - which made our night easier. The boys and my sister Naomi went with us. Overall we had a great time.
