OK, OK, So I am A Little Slow With Updates

Sorry that I have not posted in a few weeks.  Things are going well.  Joshua is in a routine and for the most part settled.  He spends a lot of time on the sofa resting his legs while they are elevated but yesterday his homebound teacher came and he is back to work.  He did not make it through the entire 2 hours, about 15 minutes before the end he became glassy eyed and was too tired but he will work up to it quickly and I am hopeful that he will be back to school in about 2 weeks.  I know he wants to go but I have to be careful about his stamina and his legs still swell if they are left down too long so he has to keep them elevated.  He saw the doctor last week and we are just waiting till the first of Feburary to see where he is at.  He will remove the casts then and xray him and decide if he needs new casts or braces.  He may get to stand then so we will see what happens.  I will post then to let you know where he is at.  It is amazing to me what you can get used to and think nothing of, people act like they are amazed when they see him but to us it is no big deal.  Thank you for your continued prayers, we know they make the difference.
