1 year; 6 months; 6 weeks and 1 day

One year ago today (27th July) we got an email from St Louis Children's hospital which told us that Evan was a suitable candidate for the Selective Dhorsal Rhizotomy surgery. It's safe to say that things havent been the same since....

Six months after that, and therefore just six months ago (28th January), following six months of fund-raising, Evan had the surgery. That was just the beginning.... below are a couple of "before" videos.

...and by way of an update, here are a few "after" videos. Hopefully it shows how much progress he has made in just six months since.

So, what next ?

Well - it's the start of the six weeks holidays, so we will have chance to "get our hands on" Ev and, in amongst doing all of the usual "kids stuff", we have a few challenges for him. Watch this space and one day soon you will see him walking independently. One day...
