Over the past week or so I have received a lot of messages, texts and phone calls from friends encouraging my family and me and asking how Logan is doing. We started this journey with Alex and now two of our children have had surgeries, with more to come. When we went into this "surgery adventure" with Logan we were told there could be nerve damage or paralysis. We were so thankful when he came out of surgery and was moving his hand. During his follow up appointment yesterday the doctor asked him if he could feel it when he touched his arm. He could. So many prayers were answered--There have been no complications and Logan hasn't been hurting.
And still, friends are checking in.
I have had several friends ask me how I do it. My answer to this question is, "I just do." Encouragement and support from friends and family doesn't hurt. ;) A couple of friends even told me that as mothers they would have been a mess. The truth is, when we went into this we knew that there was a good chance one of our kids would have this disease, but we wanted kids so we had them. Turns out all three of our gremlins ended up with it, but they are still awesome kids! I have seen them make people smile, I have seen them encourage friends, and I watch them, Alex especially, overcome so many obstacles. I can't imagine a world without them in it. It is so cool to see all the people in their lives--the many people who love them sending us encouragement, praying for my kids and for us, and contacting me just to see how "the little super hero" is doing.
So, what is the purpose of this blog, you ask? It's purpose is to say, "Thank you" to all the wonderful people my kids have in their lives. Thank you for taking the time to get to know my kids.
We love you all!
