Autumn is here. Charlie and I sat outside in the warm sun this weekend and played with some newly fallen leaves. It was a big week for us. On Tuesday, Charlie met with one of his many doctors and became the proud owner of a pair of orthotic leg braces - or as we like to call them, his Buzz Lightyear anti-gravity boots. They're going to help Charlie to work towards a standing position, which up until recently was almost impossible without his feet and knees giving out and collapsing.
