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.
