Asher is Doing Great
We’re so happy with how Asher is improving. Just five days after surgery and it feels things have come so far. He has definitely been resting well at night. Plus, he has gone almost 24 hours without any breakthrough medications. He says he has no pain except if something bumps his left leg or foot.
Today he was able to go a very short distance using his walker. He can only use this in very short spurts. One, because he can’t put any pressure on his left leg that is casted. Two, due to the deformation of his right foot, he is not able to support himself and hop very far. However, we believe one day that will all change.
Just 38 more days in that cast and his rehab can begin. Then, we hope the doctor says he is improving so well that we can begin looking at a tentative date for his right foot surgery. We’ve just got to keep taking one faith step at a time.
Asher has stayed in such great spirits and remains very comfortable. He continues to improve daily. We believe all the extra prayers are making such a difference. I believe that by the time my Asher is 15 years old he will finally feel somewhat normal compared to other kids. However, as he would say at only 13 “he is just the way God made him.” He will be special to us no matter his progress.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28)
