Lesson learned...

I've been in a bit of a mood today.  I didn't sleep very well last night and thought a lot about what had happened at Ethan's gym class.  I prayed.  I let it go.  I feel better now.

So this afternoon we headed over to get Ethan fitted for his new Supra Malleolar Orthosis aka Sure Steps

They are nice and thin and very flexible, now we have to find some shoes that he can wear them.  The Doc suggested skater type shoes or converse.  I have two weeks to find some cool kicks for him but I'm digging these...
While we were there the sweetest boy about 10 years old, wearing glasses, with one eye, a large scar from where a trach had been in his neck and braces on his legs walked up to us and asked me if he could say Hi to Ethan.  It was sweet, that sweet boy bent down and said to Ethan, "You have glasses, your just like me."  He was so well mannered and sweet and I thought to myself, "Yes, I hope he is just like you because you are so well behaved and have the best manners"  Yep, that was my lesson from God today after my little melt down yesterday....you just can't judge a book by it's cover!

After we were done we walked next door to check on the status of his wheelchair and guess what???? It was in!!!  Unfortunately, we didn't get to bring it home because we are still dealing with insurance garbage but here is a sneak peak of things to come....
