As I wrote in my last update, James had to return to Boston to repair the surgery done on his knee due to a screw backing out from the original surgery. James was scheduled for early AM surgery requiring a 4AM departure. However an emergency arose for the Dr. causing James surgery to be delayed until 1:30PM. As a result of the late surgery & recovery James did not return home until Midnight, a very long day. Thus far it seems that the surgery was successful however only time will make that determination - stay tuned. James returned to school in short order without any problem.
The Winter has been long, cold, & hard, the result of which is we all can`t wait for Springs` arrival. We are going to jump start that by visiting Disneyworld. James & Hope & more than excited about going to "The Mouse House". I recall with James his trip 6 years ago which it seems he does remember with fond memories. I cannot wait to see James & Hopes faces when we finally arrive, that alone will make this a worthwhile trip. Their anticipation is contagious & I expect this to be a wonderful experience for the entire family. We experienced WDW just last year with our older grandchildren, which was great fun, but I expect this experience to be different because James & Hope are much younger, we will keep you posted.
James has been doing very good, doing well at school & enjoying his family every day. I am still hopeful that he will speak again & Lord knows he tries very hard. We need to continue to support him & encourage him to speak again. He will at times get distinct words out, he just needs to become consistant. One thing is for certain, he is a very happy "Little Man" with an extremely happy disposition. Despite his good progress none of this would be occurring without your help so please remember to keep James in your prayers.
