Yay Bear!

We've been practicing all day, and now....The Bear Is Upwardly Mobile! The little sandals velcro onto his casts and he is able to walk. The steps are small, but this is BIG progress 3 days out from the surgery! He should be ready to try going back to school on Monday!

Isn't amazing how fast kids heal? He hasn't had any pain medicine since 5am YESTERDAY! Man...as adults, we can be so whiny! Kids just deal with it and move on!

Way to go Bear!

WOO HOO for the Bear!

I got a call from him at work telling me he is walking all by himself. :)

Maybe it had something to do with Little Bill on the TV behind him. ;)

Way to go Kayden. I am sorry we haven't called him yet. I think I left my brain somewhere at the hospital. So it's been missing for 4 weeks:) I am so proud of him. What a trooper, he has been thru so much. And way to go mom, I can't imagine what it's been like for you. Lots of love from the Utah Family:)

he looks so good-kids bounce back so quick-amazing! Maybe if we could do that, we would get better a lot faster from surgeries, sickness, etc. Only problem-we have no energy to do it! we have a family to take care of, and have no energy left to work on ourselves.

Terrific! He looks in jolly spirits. One small step for Bear...one giant step for Bear!
