Daddy and CadenPhoto By: Refuge Studios

As the old saying goes, it is true with Caden. Thank God that the only significant thing to bring to your attention is that he has been remarkably healthy for about six months now. There have been the occasional pop-up fevers and one instance of pneumonia over the summer that caused a few long nights of suctioning, but nothing worth raising a stink over. We are hopeful that this is all a sign of Caden’s immune system maturing to a point to be able to fight off some of these short term bugs that previously manifested into long hospitalizations.

Caden does have an orthopedic surgery coming up in November after his 8th birthday. This will be an adjustment to the VEPTR rods in the back that were placed to treat scoliosis. We prayerful that we can get through this next surgery with only a single night in the hospital like we did with the last back surgery in April.

There has been some fun a travel in recent weeks for the Osborne family. You can check out the Daddy Life Blog for our latest adventures. I explain describe some of the challenges of traveling with a special kid like Caden.
