Well, it has been just over two weeks since Steele's surgery and we are happy to report that he is recovering very quickly!! We would definitely call the surgery a success in that there were no complications, Steele hasn't lost much strength during his time "off" from therapy, and he is eating normally!! We are so thankful to have this major step behind us especially because we are leaving for the annual SMA conference TODAY!!!
This year the conference will be in Kansas City, Missouri. It is hard to believe that it has already been a year since the last SMA conference. As we have been preparing to leave I can't help but to compare my emotions this year to the emotions I was feeling last year at this very time. I have mentioned this before, but last year about this time I was second guessing the trip. I was anxious, scared, sad, and a host of other emotions-all which seemed to hit me at the same time. This year I am anxious but for a completely different reason. I can't wait to go see the people that have become our SMA family. I can't wait to go be with others that just "get" us because they are going through such similar situations. I am excited to laugh together, to cry together, and to learn together.
Be sure to like Steele's Facebook page as we will post pictures and updates throughout the conference. We are so excited to share this experience with you.
As always thank you for your prayers and support!!
