Brendan started a new school

Well my son always amazes me and he has done so yet again. He transitioned perfectly. He was so excited to go to a new school and start first grade. He was all smiles as you can see from the picture. He did not cry, whine, or have any anxiety. His father and I brought him for his first day because the school was not exactly ready or prepared for these students just days before school started. That could be a whole other post!! He just wanted a hug and off he went with a new PT down the hall to use the restroom. I am so proud of him.

He had a fun but difficult summer. He had hip surgery and a heart procedure and yet he takes everything in stride and still exubes happiness and joy. He has made a friend already, Evan. He loves Evan. Evan is wheelchair bound and doesn't speak but Brendan took to him instantly. He wants to stand in his stander next to Evan, sit next to Evan and he is constantly watching out for him. Sometimes Evan's head falls down and Brendan yells to his teacher's "Fix Evans head!!". He is the sweetest little boy. I think he will make a good husband one out ladies!! :)

I wish we had a break from procedures but that never happens..Botox is on for the 5th of October, I am scheduling for him to see a new professional to assess his vision in Boston, and trying to figure out how to get him assessed for a rather new lasor treatment for tissue release. There is alway something to do and research and debate on doing but I will continue to do everything I can for my little boy. He deserves that and so much more.
