Where has the year gone. It is hard to believe July 4th weekend started another part of our journey, which started when the kids were born. This year has changed our lives in ways that most never go through, all the medical tests, all the hopes and dreams, watching Ian go from being fairly independent to completely dependent, the unknown, getting the phone call with the spinal tap results, starting medicine...watching the 1st happen all over again.
This morning brought about another 1st, Ian was able to get his socks off by himself. To most that would be nothing but to Ian, it was hard work; getting his hands and fingers to work the right way. Along with getting his legs in the right position to get the socks off. He worked very hard to accomplish this along with all the hard work he has done over the past few months and all the hard work he has ahead of him...thank you to Ian and Becca for helping Brian and I to put things in perspective and for the most part keeping them that way. We love them both with all our hearts...there are not enough words to express just how much.
