Back in the game

We are settling in, getting back into our routine and enjoying our time together. We have spent the last 2 nights eating dinner with our parents, letting them snuggle with our boys and talking about what the future holds for us. I've been in contact with Dr. Scott in Boston and as long as we can figure out all the logistics, we will be going there in June for Malachi's Moyamoya surgery.  We are excited about sharing our little joy, our light and our remarkably resilient son with those in Boston. I'm sure their hearts will be warmed by his smile and grace!

It's hard to believe that 2 weeks ago he had a stroke. A major stroke that would have left any adult paralyzed, unable to see, hear or eat. They would have no expressions, no glimmer in their eye, just a lifeless right side with droopy eyes and drool. Yet here is my son who is crawling again, walking with assistance, pulling to stand and cruising along furniture. He cant eat, drink and talk. He still has his sparkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. This journey is not even close to being over and the risk of another stroke is more of a probability rather than a possibility so we are celebrating each small accomplishment, giving thanks to God each step of the way.
