A Long Over Due Wheelchair Overhaul

This morning the Millers van arrived at our house for a long over due wheelchair overhaul.
Noah so grown up in his newly over hauled chair. He needed his chair to be wider because his pelvis is opening up they it should be. All those ABR hours are paying off.

Everyone always say how much Noah has grown. In all reality he has only grown 1/2 inch in two years and has gained 8 pounds.  I just think he sits up better in his chair, his chest is filling out and he is looking more mature. We have have waited 4 months for his chair to get done. Why is there always such a wait to get things approved by insurance?

A Busy Week

On Monday I took Noah to his preop appt. with Noah's pediatrician Dr. Moneme. It really well. He is 64.8lbs and Dr. Moneme said Noah's lungs have never sounded better. And that's with no breathing treatments or vest treatments for 6 weeks. :) Go Noah!!!!
These other 2 pictures is Noah having fun while waiting on the doctor to come him. In case you are wondering..... yes Noah is happy in this picture.

Monday evening Noah had a 4-H meeting. His club is rapping things before the fair the week of Aug 3rd. Noah got to hold the flags for the pledge.

On Tuesday Noah had to receive a meningitis and a pneumonia shot for his upcoming cochlear implant surgery.    

On Wednesday he had fun greeting and passing out bread to the clients at a our local food pantry.
On Thursday Noah helped Maddie and Issiah decorate a flower pot for 4-H.
On Saturday Noah helped his 4-H club sell baked goods at the Farmers Market to make money for the fair.
On Saturday we took Noah shopping and he wanted to carry his own bag. When I stopped to take a picture he started to swing it around and twirl it around his wrist. Check out that grip....

This next week is starting out to be just as busy. Millers is coming to the house Monday morning for a much needed hover haul on Noah's wheelchair. We are also hoping to hear something back from insurance on Tuesday about his upcoming surgery. We've done everything we need to do to get ready for surgery and now it's insurances turn. Please pray for a answer this week and the answer to be surgery approved.

ABR Progress May 2014

 The latest progress report from our last session in Montreal in May.If you click on the images they will get bigger. They say ABR isn't a sprint but a marathon. Sometimes I just want to get to a big milestone, instead of always inchstones. On a side note a lot of inchstones add up to a milestone.

4th July/Ashland Balloon Fest 2014

We had a great weekend with family celebrating the 4th of July.

Dad tried to keep warm in our unseasonal cool temperatures.  It sure made for great camping weather though.
We had fun playing ladder golf.
Maddie and Noah had fun smiling for the camera.
Noah had a wonderful time with family.I didn't get a picture, :( but Emily surprised with a short visit. Noah really loved seeing her. In fact he started to cry when he sat beside someone else and not him.
Over the weekend we also went to the Ashland Balloon Fest.

A friend of ours shared her free tickets to go out on the field when they did the balloon glow.

Noah loved seeing all the pretty colors.
                                                                            Here is a video of some of the balloon glow. It was awesome to watch. Thanks Maggie for sharing with us. I've have always wanted to go to the Ashland Balloon Fest. One more thing I can mark off of my bucket list.
I wonder whats in-store for our next Summer Fun Weekends?
