Going Going Gone!

The distractors have come off and now Nathan has REALLY taken off! Nathan's distractors were removed on April 12th. The weekend before they were taken out, the distractor that wasn't replaced on the 9th of March started dangling from Nathan's cheek like the first set! I was in California at a wedding when that happened and so it was really great of Jake to sit and hold Nathan all weekend and to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with him to keep him from having another set completely fall out.

Jake and I are really pleased at Nathan's progress and recovery from this. It was a big surgery for such a little guy to go through, but as promised in a blessing from an apostle "he will have vigor and energy to complete his mission in life". He has truly started to show that. He was such a happy little camper after surgery to get those out! He just kept signing and saying "All gone, all gone!"

Yes Nathan, THEY ARE ALL GONE!!!

Yippee for Nathan. I am glad that they are gone and he is able to get around. WOW, what can I say about your Nathan? He is such a little warrior and example.
It was great to see you on Saturday, I just wished I would have had more time to visit.
By the way, I didn't comment on the quilt block, but it's awesome. Hopefully we can get the quilts out to display on show like I did in 2005.
