Almost three weeks out...

Benjamin had his post-surgical appointment today. As much as he loves Dr. Lee Segal, it wasn't all fun and games. The stitches had to be removed -- from all eight incisions -- and he had to have x-rays taken of his legs.

The good news: He was a trooper. There were some tears but I really think those were more related to his absolute exhaustion with this whole thing, then from pain.

The great news: His hips look great! They are healing beautifully and we can start trying to incorporate some of his normal activities tomorrow and in the coming days -- little by little!

Your prayers have been felt and we feel so blessed by your love and by God's faithful care. Thank you!
