I can..... WALK

It's been a very long journey. Many ups and downs, bumps, and road blocks, but after many detours and lots and lots of work, we have finally accomplished something. WALKING!! Yes, Kadyn can walk in his gait trainer! He does it without fuss most times.

Kadyn amazes me and amazes me more and more every single day. His determination is just so strong. We have been on this journey for 7 years and for most of those 7 years doctors would never believe Kadyn would still be here let along walking. I really have to thank Kadyn's school for everything. For caring and loving him so much!! For pushing him because they believe he could do it! Walking seemed something that was so far away and now, now it's much closer than every before!! I'm very excited and happy to see this!!

Kadyn has not had a seizure since his surgery either. No seizures and they have started turning his VNS up to a low therapeutic level. It has not seemed to have  bothered him at all!! Thank goodness!!!

Kyle is starting to come around Kadyn more, Kadyn's movements are so unpredictable that Kyle has been kicked in the face once or twice by Kadyn. It's by accident and Kadyn isn't being mean at all. Kyle has learned though to stay away from his feet. They are best friends and Kyle has even learned to say brother and will point at Kadyn, although this is usually followed by a "No!". Many 1 year olds favorite word.

Can you believe that this was Kadyn 7 years ago?? Boy has he grown sooo much!!! He has grown into a handsome strong boy and I am so proud to be his mom!

And proud you should be, you've got an amazing boy! I feel proud just as a long time fan of Kadyn's seeing him walking in the gait traiter! I know just how wonderful of a feeling that is as a mother!
