Brian has been diagnosed with Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease.   He has had almost all activity restricted and will have to be in a wheelchair for a while.  He is in an adult one now while we are on the hunt for a pediatric chair.    This morning he seems to be more accepting of what is happening to him and  that he NEEDS to stay in the chair or on the couch or in bed.   I made a bag for the back so he can holster his Nerf gun and hold little things.  My folks are sending my Grandfather's wheelchair gloves that he used.  I teased him I was going to cover him with bags and blankets and the like and he can try and sell my stuff for me while at school.  He was not amused. :)

 Today we are going to try and forget about it a bit and go get our tree and start decorating the house.  We have friends coming over for dinner and all the kids can play and do some crafts.   Thanks for all the kind words and thoughts for him and our family.

  1. Changes. Good that the tree and friends are coming, and that, at least for today, you can try to enjoy just being....
    Love you lots.


I'd love to hear from you.
