I have received a bunch of emails asking about Cliff!
He is doing wonderful, but there are more challenges ahead.
One huge change in Cliff’s life is that he is back in our Church Preschool two mornings a week with all of his friends!
This year Cliff walks all the way from the car…
…down the long hallway…
(The Girl likes to “hewlp Cwee”)
… and into his classroom where he is always eagerly greeted by his buddies!
The children in his class are so sweet to Cliff.
On numerous occasions when I go to pick him up, he is playing with a few friends on the floor.
When they see me, they go get his walker and push it over to him so he can get into it!
We are so blessed that Cliff has such sweet friends and teachers!
We have been venturing out more lately and Cliff is loving every second of it!
He WANTS to walk in his walker everywhere we go!
And his speed has increased sooo much!
Cliff doesn’t need me to help him adapt to situations as much anymore.
His independence is thriving.
He does things like get out of his walker and climbs onto the little step to “check out” at the play grocery store!
The Boy amazes me everyday.
Cliff is still going to The Therapy Place three days a week where he works VERY hard!
His determination is so inspiring.
Cliff is walking on his toes now.
He used to have nice, flat feet, but because of hamstring and inner thigh tightness,
this is no longer the case.
Ross and I want to share with you that we are heading back to St. Louis
in May for Cliff to undergo another operation.
Thankfully, this operation is not as invasive as the last operation.
Ross and I know that this surgery HAS to be done,
but it is so scary, heart breaking that our little boy has to go through this
and to be honest we are worried how Cliff will react this time.
He is a year and a half older than he was when he had the SDR.
He will most likely remember having the surgery and recovery this time.
I will go into all of the details about this surgery very soon.
But for now, we just need you to put Cliff in your prayers.
Please pray that when Ross and I tell him about the surgery, he is not scared.
Please pray that Cliff does not have anxiety.
Please pray that he understands what is going on as best as his 4 year old mind can and that he knows how much we love him.
Thank you all for your support!
God is so wonderful and He continues to open doors for Cliff!
We are so thankful!
