Merry Christmas...

I had Christmas pictures made of both of my "little" boy's, their big brother decided he wasn't doing pictures this year. Elijah did well for maybe three takes, then he was finished! I still think they turned out well!

Wonderful News- update on Elijah

My little vampire at Halloween!

Wow. It is past time that I post in here. A lot has been going on, Elijah was seen at the University of Virginia Children's Hospital, Kluge Rehabilitation Center. He was seen in the CP clinic where I have to say we have received some wonderful news. A year ago a developmental specialist diagnosed Elijah with Cerebral Palsy, level 4. The spectrum ranges from 1-5 with five being the most severe and anything above a 3 meaning that the child will likely be wheelchair dependant.
After the specialist at UVA examined Elijah he said that he did not agree with the level 4 diagnosis, he changed it to a 2! He says this means that Elijah will walk independently! No wheelchair for my boy, unless he just gets tired at a amusement park or something and wants to ride on a scooter :) He will have a limp, and may tire easily, he will never be a football star or run track. But, I know that God has something great planned for Elijah. He constantly surprised the doctors and the hand of God is evident in his life!
