Elijah and his surgery

Elijah had his surgery on his foot last Thur at Shriners. He will be in his walking cast for 4-5 weeks. Here are a couple of the pictures taken (with my crappy point and shoot that kids have dropped a million times).

Elijah right after surgery with his room Buddie that went home shortly afterwards

Chilling on the big pillow

looking out some of the huge windows...

Elijah loved riding in the wagon - including riding in it down the elevator to eat

trying to walk for the first time with the cast...

Elijah took this unexpected photo of mom and dad...

Wow, what a week! It looks like the hospital knows there stuff and took good care of Elijah. I hope he continues to make progress, it's amazing what modern medicine can do. I love the wheelbarrow! Were you just dying when he tooks those first few steps? I remember feeling lightheaded when Bryson took his first few steps after his accident/surgery. More anxious than anything. Does he get to go to school with the walking cast or does he have to take it easy at home for a bit? Good luck to you guys!!! Good job, mom!!

Hi from Germany,

your blog is very intersting!

My son, Fabian, age 10, is wheelchair bound since he fell from a tree two years ago.

It was a very hard time for all of us after Fabians accident. The moment when the doctor told us, that Fabian is paralyzed and the moment when we must told him that he never walk again, was so terrible. Especially terrible was the day, when Fabian got his first wheelchair. I still cry when I saw him sitting in his wheelchair at the first time.

But Fabian is so brave! I am so proud of him.

Since his accident Fabian visits a school for special needs kids. All other kids in his class are disabled, too. The most kids must use a wheelchair, tree kids can walk with a walker / quad canes.

Every Saturday Fabian visits a sport group for children in wheelchairs. Two hours they play together in their wheelchairs. It is so funny for the kids.

Two month ago he got a new “Spidermann”-wheelchair. If you are interest I will send you some photos of him in his new wheelchair.

Best wishes Katja
