James is finishing his Summer School today & hoping to enjoy some vacation @ the Lake before school begins again in September. He has continued to do well, his earlier surgery to help correct his knee appears to be slowly correcting, as was hoped & anticipated. As a result of the corrective knee surgery James is required to wear a full leg brace that is bothersome but necessary for him. Despite the discomfort my Little Man continues to be strong & fights thru the discomfort.
This last week he surprised his Dad & nurse by clearly saying Dad, the first time this has happened. He tries very hard to speak but with that exception the words have not come quite yet, but I continue to be hopeful. This is James favorite time of the year & tries to spend as much time as possible outside, the little boy is alive & well wanting to do everything any other 8 year old wants to. He does like going to the movies & especially being with his family. He brings much joy into our lives. When Hope plays with him he has a gigantic smile, he loves her & she loves him so very much. It has been a good year thus far hi-lited by the trip to Disneyworld in the Spring with few bumps in the road. Hopefully James will get to the Lake with his cousins so they can swim, tube, fish, boat and just have a great time with his family which I think is his most favorite thing to do.
Things could always be better but they could be worse so we are happy as to where we are at. Although he continues to do well it is because of your concern & support, so please as always remember James in your prayers since that is what has allowed him to get this far.
