Those are like watching before and after photos of people that lost 100 pounds.....WOW! I clicked on the first one and it is still so hard to see him that way but it's amazing to see before and after like that, truly shows how far he has come.
I am absolutely tickled that this has worked out the way it has, it's like night and day
I know you must be relieved, having this ahead of you was awful, especially after the first surgery. That one seemed to have taken a lot longer recovery wise and he didn't snap back the same way that he did with this one. Of course, having that confinement period probably made all the difference in the world too. It gave him a chance to heal and forced him stay still.
Thank you for sharing these most awesome videos. It really shows the progress that words cannot truly convey.
Lots of love and hugs

It took me awhile to build up my courage to watch the videos - especially the first one (odd that you already knew this would be the case). He LOOKS FANTASTIC!!! You have to be so pleased! Christmas miracle indeed!
