I cannot believe it has already been 14 weeks since Cliff’s surgery (also, see Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy under Labels)!
Wow! Time flies!
This week Cliff has worked very hard and is making great progress! He is now walking in public! This is so exciting for us! It is so comforting that even strangers seem to be just as excited for Cliff as we are! They all smile and say “awesome job buddy!” instead of avoiding him because he is different. I am so thankful that most of the people in our community seem to be accepting of Cliff.
We went out to dinner one night last week and Cliff walked from the car into the restaurant:
It takes him a little longer to get places, but we are so thrilled that he has independence now!
He still needs help turning and not crashing into door frames (he likes to “crash” which is ok at our house but not everywhere we go!)!
Then he walked all the way to our car!
Go, Cliff, Go!
We are so thankful to God for this blessing.
