Well, we had hoped that Jaxson was not going to need a second surgery however, after sending video tapes and measurements to Dr. Park, he has decided that the heel cord surgery will benefit Jaxson. I am again, worried sick but I know that he will be in good hands and I have complete faith in Dr. Park’s abilities. I also want every effort to be made to help Jaxson have a brighter future.
A special heartfelt thank you to everyone that has commented and shown their support. Our local PBA has even gotten involved. I can’t tell you how nice it is to see our local community as well as people from around the world reaching out to help Jaxson. Anytime that I get afraid or worried or even down in the dumps, I remember how lucky we are and I remember the sign below that my daughter shared with me after her first visit to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
This was a sign that my daughter saw when she first walked through the doors at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, I love it! It is so inspirational and I keep it tucked away in my heart. Below are my two sunshines. Jaxson and Tanner. My daughter captured this image of the two boys when Jaxson was in rehab, she used her iphone.

We hope to bring awareness to other families that have no idea that this surgery is available and that some insurance policies cover the surgery. We had to find this information out on our own, not one doctor or therapist along the way even mentioned it to us. This is not a cure for CP, but it makes a great difference in the quality of the lives of those who have had the procedure.
Fingers crossed, wish us luck!
Also, I am sorry for the duplicate posts that I have been sending out-I had no idea, thanks to Dennis Bishop for the heads up.
