A Medical Update

It has been a little while since I updated on some of our medical stuff.  It has been a long road but we finally have Sera scheduled for surgery.  We have been working on getting surgery scheduled for 9 months.  Because of her numerous medical issues and lots of unknown medical information we had to jump through lots of hoops to get her passed for surgery. For those of you who do not know us personally, Sera was born with 7 fingers on each hand and 6 toes on each foot along with several other congenital birth defects.  She does amazingly well!  She will be having surgery on March 24th to have the extra digits removed.  It will be a long process and may require more than one surgery.  

WOOOHOOO!  Jacob has his new wheelchair.  This chair will allow him to use his Dynavox speaking device, if Dynavox ever sends us the attachment arm.  Another long story, we have been working on for far too long.   It is also more sturdy so hopefully he will not break it when he goes into extension.  He broke his other wheelchair multiple times.  If you know us in the "real world" you are probably wondering why you have not seen his new chair.  Well,  there are multiple reasons.  #1 it will not fit into our van.  #2  it is super heavy and I cannot lift it.  I can barely drag it up the front stairs of the house(when Jacob is NOT in it).  So here is a picture of him in his wonderful new chair that you may never see in person.
