Gages medical/recovery fund
Gage was recently hit by a vehicle while walking to school. Four of his siblings were with him at the time. Gage has had surgery on his arm, leg, and jaw, and has several more surgeries scheduled. Gage has a long road of recovery ahead of him, including many years of dental therapies and doctors have recommended relocating to a warmer climate.
Gage is 9 years old, the fourth child of eight. He marches to the beat of his own drum and is a very curious child. He loves playing dolls with his sisters, cars with his younger brothers, and sports/video games with his older brother. He is lively and energetic, keeping mom and dad constantly on their toes.
Gage got to eat for the first time since the accident on Christmas morning. Scrambled eggs, yum. He still to this day isn't able to eat everything he used to due to the continued dental problems, but he is getting there.
Gage walks without his crutches most of the time and his limp is slowly getting better. The ortho surgeons say he should be able to get the titanium fixtures removed in May.
Gage and his siblings are working on moving through this emotionally. They are starting therapy to address fears, nightmares, and depression. Hopefully they will soon be comfortable walking to school again.
Speaking of school, the city finally made the road in front of the school a school zone! I cried happy tears watching Arvada PD pull over speeders!
It has been recommended that we move to a warmer climate, as we all know Colorado weather plays havoc on bones... so a move is on the list of things to do.
Thank you all for helping my family through this.
