'Operversary' Number Three!

Yesterday we celebrated the third anniversary of Daniel's SDR operation. It shows how much significance the date has for him that he asked several weeks ago if he could go out for a special meal with his friends on the 15th November. So, that's what we did!

Of course the day started with the obligatory physio. Here's a little clip of Daniel working hard trying to keep his body straight while holding a 1kg medicine ball over his head.

Then out for lunch we went!

Here's a tiny clip of Daniel walking and chatting away coming out of the restaurant. There isn't much because I wasn't moving fast enough to get ahead of him!

It was great to celebrate the day, because sometimes we get lost in the hard work, the nagging and the worry. We forget that Daniel has made huge progress in the last three years. He and we continue to work hard towards his big goal of an independent life.

As always, a big thank you to those who have supported us in any way over the last three years (and longer). It continues to mean a lot to us!
