We have started this blog to spread the word about Daniel’s upcoming surgery and garner as much prayer support and encouragement as possible as we enter a new phase of Daniel’s life and the life of our family. Daniel will be having Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) on July 5th. SDR holds much promise for improvement in the limitations caused by Daniel’s cerebral palsy. (See the About SDR page for details.) Following the surgery and initial recovery, he will begin intensive physical therapy 4-5 times per week for six months, then 3-4 times per week for the next six months. This is a great undertaking for all of us, especially Daniel.
