My son turned 16 this week, I am so proud of him. He has severe hemophilia and we have worked so hard at not allowing the hemophilia to run our lives. He has had a few knocks through the years, broken ankle and arm , a hit to the head, a bleed that lasted 6 weeks behind the knee, hemorrhaging Adonises, an elbow here and there, not to forget the mussel bleeds now and then.
He is walking with out a limp, 95%+ range of motion on all joints, a mended arm and no target joints.
He is getting his drivers license this week, spending weekends with friends even out of state and once in a snow cave. He rides dirt bikes, quads, snowmobiles and plays a full menue of sports. He has taken full controll of his inconvience and is powering on to be the best he can be.
What more can you ask for a well rounded kid, ready to take on the world
You new moms out there remember hemophilia is a small inconvience not a handicap
enjoy your children
Happy Birthday to my Alex
