Aunt Jenny & Uncle Ross here,
Just letting all you people know that our main man Logan is going in for the second surgery on his legs, feet, etc on June 4th, 2015. For those of you who don't know our nephew Logan, he has left side Hemi-parisis Cerebral Palsey. As a result of said dignosis, he has had one major surgery already in 2013 to his legs to correct his gait and help him walk more effieciantly. This time around he will be having the hardware from his first surgery removed and having the same procedure re-done on his right leg. They are also going to do some stuff to his feet to raise his arches which will also help him walk. Logan will be laid up for a good portion of the summer as a result of this procedure. To assist and motivate Logan in is recovery, We have set up this site to solicite donations for a Trailmate Lowrider bicycle as well as other equipment which will help with his recovery.

Logan right now has a bike, but because most of his "power" is on his right side he leans heavily to the right and because of that he has to have training wheels. He knows all his friends his age do not need training wheels and with this bike he could feel "normal" for his age! Logan's mom has informed us that Logan would also benefit from a hammock (to assist with his sensory stuff).

As most kids do, Riley feels very left out when Logan is given all this attention and for that reason I am also asking for funds to get Riley a trampoline or if enough funds are raised a backyard jungle gym.

Scott and Beckie will also be using the funds to pay for traveling back and forth to the Hospital this summer for all of Logan's follow up Doctor's Appointments and Therapy Appointments.

Anyway, please give some money to this or we will be forced to contact our friends Rocco and Gino who work for the union down on the docks. Trust us, you don't want us to have to get Rocco and Gino involved so do the right thing eh?!

p.s. please share with your family and friends via email or Facebook...every little bit helps!

Monday was a very long day for Logan. He had appointments at Gillette from 12:30 to 6:00! We started out getting rid of his very smelly casts that had been on him for four weeks! Had to go do some x-rays and then visit his amazing Doctor, Dr. Healy. Dr. Healy pulled out three long pins out of his left foot. I was thinking that the pins would have been short, but when he was pulling them out they just kept coming. Mind you he pulled them out w/no numbing and boy did he feel it! The first pin was pulled and Logan lost his breath, but by the time he was pulling the second pin he had his breath back and was crying. Everything looked good, his skin looked good, the incisions looked good and are healing well. The casts he has on are walking casts, but the Dr. wanted to wait another week before he puts any weight on his left. So we are still lifting and carrying him!
Logan choose red and black for his new casts. The colors stand for Thomas Wain/Flash point Batman.
I would like to thank Wanda Plourde who not only sent Logan a gift certificate to Target, but also sent one to Riley for being such a good brother! THANK YOU!

I am heading out of town for the weekend. I have my conference for Initials Inc. in Florida and I just want to say that I already had everything purchased before Ross and Jen set this GFM page up. All this money is Logans and it will stay Logans! I can't express enough how thankful we have been for everything that people have done for us! We really are greatful for everything!
no more batman casts
hello new casts

Logan was supposed to get his non-weight bearing casts off on Monday May 29th! Well his Dr. was out and so was his P.A. So they decided to wait until this Monday July 6th. So what does that mean on our side? First of all..... and most importantly he has another whole week of having his procedure heal with no weight bearing on his legs what so ever! Second......I am getting a lot of muscles built up in my arms from carrying him everywhere! Third....you cannot go near him w/out getting a good whif of his casts and feet! They really need to come off!
This Monday July 6th his casts will come off, Dr. Healy will make the decision if he is good to get his screws out (he has 6 screws between both feet that are actually sticking out of his skin) and if everthing looks good he will be able to get his weight bearing cast on. We don't think he has lost as much muscle mass this time and we hope that he will only have a few days of working on walking with the new casts on! He has not decided what color he will go with this time!
Since Logan has been home, I have neglected to stay up to date with his postings and for thanking a few people!
To the Godin's (Cherie, Tim & Alex) Thank you for your $500 towards Logan's bike. You know I am going to yell at you when I see you next! I got the envelope from Jennifer on the day of Logan's surgery, which was just not fair to get such an amazing gift from you why my emotions were already running high!
To Keith Stevens and family, your gift of a $100 and the nice card was wonderful! Your money will go towards paying for gas for all of Logan's appt.'s. Keith is one of my Dad's oldest friends! If I remember correctly they started in school together and have been friends for over 60 years! Thank You!
To Uncle Ronnie, your $100 dollars went right into the tank on the day I got it! Thank you for your gift and Thank You for thinking of Logan and my whole family!
I will post after Monday's visit!
I want to thank ALL my Initials Inc. family that brought over a whole weeks worth and more of food! Not to have to worry about what I was going to make after the day was amazing! I cannot say enough of how great it was to have supper ready for us in the fridge! FOR A WHOLE WEEK!
Thank You to my Central Bank family in Hudson! They sent Logan a 5 book package of Captain Underpants! He was so excited to get them! He has one in the van that he is reading, One on the floor of his bed (along w/a flashlight) that he reads, and one by his chair that he sits in! He loves them and I love you guys!
Thank You to Auntie Gay and Uncle Jeff for the Geronimo Stilton book! he just started reading this seris this year and he was so excited to get his very first book. This book is also on the table by his chair and he loves it!

Love to all of you that have kept Logan in your thoughts
Scott, Beckie, Riley and especially Logan

We have been home for a handful of days now and we have had pretty good days and nights! Logan had to take the "good stuff" pills tonight because he was feeling a bit more pain than usual. His tape came off on his hip where they went in to take out his hardware and it had been bugging him all day. He had a little breakdown tonight and wished that all of this would go away. He cried to us and wanted to know why he had to do this and why he had to be the one to have bad legs! Luckily I just checked on him and he is sleeping. Every day will get better and every day he will heal even more!

Our friends the Whitlock's stopped by the other day and gave Logan and Riley a very big and sweet card full of candy! Not only that, Beckah was nice enough to make us dinner!

Then tonight we were lucky enough to have Uncle Ross come visit and also bring us some dinner!

Scott has gone back to work and I have to admit that this time around is much harder for me. Logan is a year and a half older and at least 20 lbs. heavier! Lifting him is not as easy as it was on the first surgery!

Keep on posting your comments, we read them all to Logan!
Love
All of us!

Well it's been a long 4 days! Logan's surgery went very well! They took the hardware out of his left hip, harware out of his left shin, turned his right shin again and screwed and plated it again, put a cadaver bone in the bottom of both feet..to give him an arch & moved his left heel over to where is should be! It took two doctor's 6 hours to do all of it! He actually has a couple screws sticking out from his left heel and will be sticking out for about a month! Then another Dr. snuck in and gave him botox in his left leg! Thursday and Friday were days of rest for him. Friday was also the day of the Gostovich's...Grandma & Grandpa stopped in for an afternoon visit & The Hammond Gostovich's showed up later in the evening minus one hard working 17 year old that was working! Saturday was the day to get him up and moving. By up and moving getting in a wheelchair and moving him around. It was quite a feat to get him in his chair. Not only did we have to get him in the chair, but we also had to get all his wires and tubes but we also had to lift his very heavy casts. Once we got him in the chair he promptly fell asleep from all the activity!
Tomorrow is going to be a very long and big day for him! They are going to take off his soft cast and put on the hard cast to prepare him to go home! It will take up to two hours to get all this done and luckily his will have a lot of drugs to keep him happy and painfree! After that is all done they then will pull out his epideral and that is when he will start to experience more pain! It will take the rest of the day to figure his pain management. I hate to see him in pain and it will be a hard day for all of us tomorrow!
I would like to thank my mom for taking Riley and letting him sleep over all those nights and keeping him throughout days so Scott and I can give Logan our complete attention!
My Sister Jennifer, My Brother Ross & My Brother in law Richard for keeping us company and taking Riley and making sure that he is not left out! It means the world to us!

Thank You & we love you all for the support that you all have given us!
LOGAN, Scott, Beckie & Riley
