The strength of a boy....

It is with a much lighter heart that I write this post today.

I have been fortunate to make the journey to New York to join my family.

I expected to see Maddox resting & uncomfortable but rather he gave me a lesson on how to be strong.

He was teaching us how to laugh, smile and the best park of all.....WINK!

It was nice to be able to sit and cuddle him on my lap even if it was for a brief moment.

He is doing remarkably well.

Dr. Waner & Dr. Fay are optimistically hopeful that Maddox still has vision in his eye and no cataract.

If Maddox continues to recover quickly and all goes well Dr. Waner would like to start the second surgery in 4-6 weeks rather than waiting until September.

Maddox was awake at 6:00am tearing around the hospital...if we could only bottle that resiliency....

We are awaiting word as to whether or not Maddox gets to leave the hospital.

Thank you to Disney for sending over a care package for Maddox, I am told he watched "Cars" at least 6 times yesterday.

Thank you to everyone who continues to rally around Maddox & keep him in their prayers. You have all helped to make this possible for him. For that we are eternally grateful.

Will post soon....

  1. Blessings to you and yours. I often travel to New York (Long Island) for surgeries as well, but for brain surgeries. I live in Arizona so it is a LONG trip from here as well, a good 8 hours after changing planes etc. The debt is terrible since the insurance from my husband, a police officer, blacklisted me, and I had to stop teaching middle school. I keep your son in my prayers; he is precious. My kids are 9 and 8. So amazing and resilient, aren't they? We will remember you through your journey. Keep strong! Too Much Brain to Contain
