Trials are not enemies of faith but are opportunities to prove
God's faithfulness. -- Author Unknown

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one
to say 'thank you?' -- William A. Ward

Now that we are through Ananya's surgery and almost through all the recovery, we are seeing some of her spirit. She is almost back to where we started from. That is amazing. People told me that we would be able to see the whole picture in 6-9 months. It has been alittle less than 4 months.
Prasun also had his second round of botox in December. He didn't have to have casting done this time.
I'll post video of both of them walking last spring and now. Ananya is about the same, but again is only 4 months from her surgery. Prasun's walking is about 70% better. He can also navigate in the house. He turns around and everything.

Oh, Amanda! They both look so great! It's wonderful to watch their journey and get some inspiration. We're still in the getting things figured out stage. Thank you so much for sharing their progress. Ananya looks great for this soon after surgery, and Prasun has grown up so much!
