"So that she can walk!"

This is a true story...


"What are you doing, Philip?" we asked.

"I'm giving her surgery," he replied.

"What kind of surgery?"
"For her feet. I'm fixing her foot and giving her a cast."

"Why?" we asked.

"So that she can walk."

About two years ago, Philip had a procedure, similar to the one he gave the doll, done on his hips. He was in a half-body cast for quite a few months. Since that time, Philip has done some amazing things. Such as learning how to walk, and standing.

We think that it's really neat how adept and comfortable our children are with all things medical and surgery related. They are truly experts, as they have been through more procedures and check-ups than most children (and more than any child should ever have to go through!). They are incredible little people.

Who knows, maybe Philip will grow up to be a surgeon one day?


  1. What a sweet little guy. He will be an amazing man!

  2. My little guy plays like that with his panda bear. After 5 surgeries, he's become a pro! Philip reminds me of my little boy!

  3. Such a precious, precious boy....
