Preparing for Surgery

It's been a while since we last updated everyone on Diego's condition. He's doing really well thanks to weekly physical therapy. Unfortunately PT is not enough to bring his feet flat. He also has limited range of motion in his right wrist. Both will require surgery which is scheduled to take place on Feb 6th. The surgery will take no less than 5 hrs and require a minimum 5 night stay in the hospital. He will have full length hard casts on both legs and his right arm for 9 weeks. We don't expect him to be a happy camper. Especially during the first 3 days after surgery. We've already been told to prepare ourselves for some long days and nights. We want everyone to know that Diego will be in good hands. His surgeons are some of the best in the world. We are not without worry but know he is getting the best possbile care.

Next week we will post his hospital info(room # and phone) for those that want to send there well wishes. Until then, we hope you enjoy this short little video of Diego laughing it up with Mama :)

Diego goes to Milano!

In Nov. 2007, the family travelled to Mama's hometown of Milan, Italy to visit the family. We all had a wonderful time and everyone was so excited to see Diego. Here are a few photos from our visit.

Ciao a tutti! Finalmente ecco le foto della nostra ultima visita. Scusate del ritardo...mi raccomando scrivete presto. Abbracci e bacioni a tutti.
