New Colors

We took another trip down to LA today and came back with new casts. One blue and one yellow this time. When the took the old casts off Robert said,

"My feelings think they don't want any more casts."

And when it was time to put the new ones on asked the guy if he could please have soft casts instead. Sorry bud, they don't come that way. He handled everything like a real trooper though.

He was also fitted for his braces and due to some sores on his feet we will be going back in one week instead of 2 to do it all over again.

Due to problems with our insurance and a flat tire on the way home we were gone much longer than anticipated. So I have to give a shout out to our friend Victoria for getting the girls to school and watching William for NINE HOURS today. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you!!!


  1. Hi from Germany,

    I found your blog by chance.

    I have a special needs boy, too.

    My son, Fabian, age 10, is wheelchair bound since he fell from a tree two years ago.

    It was a very hard time for all of us after Fabians accident. The moment when the doctor told us, that Fabian is paralyzed and the moment when we must told him that he never walk again, was so terrible. Especially terrible was the day, when Fabian got his first wheelchair. I still cry when I saw him sitting in his wheelchair at the first time.

    But Fabian is so brave! I am so proud of him.

    Since his accident Fabian visits a school for special needs kids. All other kids in his class are disabled, too. The most kids must use a wheelchair, tree kids can walk with a walker / quad canes.

    Every Saturday Fabian visits a sport group for children in wheelchairs. Two hours they play together in their wheelchairs. It is so funny for the kids.

    Two month ago he got a new “Spidermann”-wheelchair.

    If you are interest I will send you some photos of him in his new wheelchair.

    When Fabian was 5 years old, he broke his left arm. In hospital he get a full arm cast for nearly six weeks. All his friends signed his cast.

    When the cast comes off, Fabian had a multi colored work of art.

    I hope all friends of Robert sign his cast and he will become a mulit colored work of art, too.

    Perhaps you can post some photos of Robert with his blue and yellow cast.

    I will be glad about a short answer mail.

    Best wishes Katja

  2. I am so sorry for your boy and your family. He must be very brave. I really believe that Heavenly Father never gives us more than we can handle so you must be a very strong person!
