The Annual Binford Family Christmas Pic
Don't even ask!!!
On New Years day we celebrated Christmas with the Binford Clan! It was well worth the wait. Bin and Oaxie were so excited to see that Santa had left just a few more presents at Nana and Granddaddy's house for them! Bin finally got Big Foot which he had been waiting for and Oaxie was surprised she had a rather large Rapunzel under the tree! However, we decided that we should have given her to the guys for Christmas. For some reason they all enjoyed brushing her long hair! :)
The new year started off with Bin's visit to the Neurologist. We have been concerned because he has been falling a little more than usual. We were hoping his new braces would correct that but so far they have not. The doctor says he does not believe it is tethered cord which we were the most worried about. He says it could be related to a shunt malfunction so Bin will be having a MRI to rule that out too, hopefully! Bin has his Spina Bifida clinic at Scottish Rite tomorrow so we can get some questions answered there also. We have not really wanted to bring up the 'wheel chair' conversation but we are getting to the point that it is an upcoming reality. Bin gets very tired after walking long distances and has been asking to be carried when we are in the store or walking around the pasture. He complains that his legs are tired. He will not need it all the time but for long distances he will. Keep us in your prayers as this is yet another learning and coping process that Spina Bifida brings into our lives.
