Michael has officially finished his first semester in college! I couldn't be more proud of him. He received all A's...well one A- but just because of a few minor details! He worked so hard...14 credits wasn't exactly easy...and he has registered for 16 more next semester! But I must say he is really enjoying this holiday break...actually we all are! It's been really nice being able to spend so much time together! He was going to physical therapy at Neuroworx three times a week until medicaid cut off physical therapy throughout the state. So now we are looking at other avenues for Michael to continue his improvements. Some great news is he will be receiving custom made braces for his legs hopefully by the end of January! The braces are called HKFO's (Hip Knee Foot Orthodic)...he will use these braces with fore arm crutches to begin walking...I know it's hard to believe this is actually the case...but I sure can't wait! We'll keep you posted! He's received a few more visits for physical therapy...but he wants to save those for when he gets his braces. It's so nerve racking wondering if we're doing everything right...making sure he's stretching enough...or moving enough...and if he's at the right place...getting the right braces...the right care....we just don't want to make any wrong moves...yet we don't know exactly what the right moves are??? Don't get us wrong though...we have great hope he will one day be walking on his own...no crutches...no braces...just Michael...his legs...and the strength of the Lord.
