We wanted to take this chance to wish everyone a Happy Easter! We look forward to being together to celebrate Resurrection Sunday and give thanks with our family for the miracles God has performed in our lives. We pray these pictures will remind you of God's provision for our family. They show Brady before surgery, in the days after, a picture with Dr. Laquaglia, and a few since we have been home. We got a surprise call today from the Easter bunny who wanted to come and visit us! The kids were just in awe and we had a wonderful time! THANK YOU EASTER BUNNY! Brady of course was the least afraid, he snuggled right up to that bunny and never really let go! Precious memories for sure. Brady is stunning us with his recovery. Other than being tired a few times, he played today like any other day. He walked behind a push toy for over an hour! At one point this morning he stood up next to me, let go of my shoulder, and just started dancing! Imagine that we were supposed to be in the hospital for at least another week or two!
As far as what is next, we have to go back to NYC for a quick surgical follow up in 2 weeks. Then we will repeat the CAT scans in 4-6 weeks. We are not sure if we will do those locally, or at Sloan. The NB doctor we spoke to on Friday told us that in most cases like Brady's, no further treatment will be necessary! If that is the case, we would then be in a monitoring phase where scans every few months would be required. So, the waiting and journey continue. For today, let us all look to God and be in awe of His grace and goodness! Happy Easter!
