Two Years Post Surgery

It's hard to believe that two years have passed since that scary, anxiety filled day.  Two years of healing and growing and good health.  This day was a crossroads for Winston.  Almost everything we talk about regarding his health and progress is defined by that day - it's either pre-surgery or post-surgery.

I had no idea that abdominal muscles play such an important role in our health and well being.  With strong tummy muscles, Winston can finally eat well and keep his food down (he used to throw up alot!), he can run and jump and climb just like any other kid his age and he doesn't get terribly sick when he catches a cold (no hospital visits for him since his surgery!).  His body is now strong all around and it's such an amaziong blessing to have him be so healthy and strong.

This is Winston the day after his surgery two years ago.
 And here he is today - happy and healthy!  :)
(I couldn't figure out how to rotate these but wanted to post them anyway.)

You ROCK Winston and we love you to Infinity and Beyond!  :)

I didn't realize he has had no hospital visits because of sickness since then!! That's so awesome! Yay! When we all get together you would never even know he has had such struggles when you watch him play with the other kids. At the party he even had the strongest swing... by far, lol! Boy, we love you Winston!!

(PS, Holly, I can't even imagine all that you've been through with this. BIG HUGS!)

Me too! I didn't know being so sick was connected with his tummy. What a blessing all around.
