    Make Josh`s Day

    Hi there, My son Josh who is 9 years old was born with Neurofibromatosis.He had a pseudoarthrosis of the left Tibia (bowing) his leg broke at 9 months. Josh has had several corrective surgeries done which include bone grafts,external fixators,Rods/pin.He wears a full leg splint to walk. The orthopaedic Surgeon has decided to amputate Josh`s Foot/Ankle on the 28th of June. Josh is a happy active kid who loves to play baseball,swim and other regular 9 year old boy actives. The recovery process will take a couple of weeks so to re-direct his attention away from his leg during this time I have organised people/kids to send him cards.I want to inundate him with well wishes from friends,family,sporting heroes,and other children. How can you help ? Send him a card ...... The postal address for the cards is..... Josh Uhrig PO Box 335 Beecroft 2119 NSW AUSTRALIA This mail box has close sorry ( 29/3/05 )It would be great to receive cards from all over the world.The cards can be sent anytime as we will hold them till his Surgery.Josh will try to respond to all his mail. A post op photo of Josh with his cards around him will be posted on the Australian NF Website www.nfaa.org.au Thank you in advance Debbie

    Thanks Brenda Yes I'm very proud of my wee son, I love the way he congratulates his team mates when they score with a hand touch (low five ) and that he doesn't get frustrated on court when he gets a foul or gets tipped out of his chair ..... he just hops back in with a smile on his face. Debbie :D

    Hi there, Sorry I have been so slack with my replies of late !!!!!! things have been very hectic. We have just come home from the School Pacific games in Melbourne. Josh was competing in the NSW under 14's Wheelchair basketball team. It was a fantastic experience for Josh mixing it up with all the other athletes both ablebods and disabled. Josh came home with the silver medal ....... cat you may be pleased to know that the Victorian team won the gold. When I get my photos developed I will post one of Josh with his medal. Here is a website with photos from the games www.kidsklix.com.au ( password psgb 0512) Warm regards Debbie

    B) Great photo Cat ! B) Hi all, Just a little update about the school games in Melbourne in November. Josh has been traning hard for the Wheelchair Basketball competition. Paul (husband) has booked as our accomodation through his work at the " Marriott Melbourne Hotel ". The games run for 8 days with the opening ceremony on the 26th of November. The Wheelchair basketball competition runs for 8 days with the finals on the 3rd of December. Unfortunately no international teams are coming to compete in Wheelchair Basketball so it will be a state verses state competion ( NSW - probably the strongest team ) Josh is the youngest on the team so he will be staying with me at the Hotel (the rest of the team will be staying at the Melbourne University) I will have loads of time on my hands during the day as Josh will be with the team. Cat and mel any suggestion as to how I can fill my days in Melbourne. I've heard the shopping is good can you confirm that ........ as we will be flying down I wont have my car ......... whats the transport like ? Trams !!!!!! is that a half bus/half train ?????? Never been to Melbourne before ........ tell me everything. Debbie
