Thanks for replying, it's wonderful to know another family that is traveling to Columbus!  Our appointment was last Mon.  It went great!  First Sawyer did the PT evaluation.  This took alittle over one hour.  Parents aren't able to go with as this is being done, it was not scary to Sawyer as he goes to PT and OT 2 times a week for 2 hours each time and is very use to the equipment that was used.  After we were able to talk to Dr. Mendel.  He still wasn't able to tell us too much more than we were already were told.  33 boys are being screened and they are taking 12-16 participants.  The middle of May they will call to let us know if we were excepted.  They are 95% sure that there will be finacial assistance. June 1st is the projected start date. So glad to connect with you! -Brenna
