Thank you Ethan.
My friend William and I are going ‘berserk”
Snoopy the exhausted pet (I’m pretty sure his tongue is purple from barking)
My teacher, Mrs. Hefner, came for a visit.
Morgan’s gone angry!
The special candy tower – Thanks Sarah!
Thank you for the books and videos sent to keep me from going crazy.
Some really cool stuff from Lockheed Martin/NASA from Kevin Roots, a friend of my Uncle Jon. He also sent me a cool link to the real Mars Mission website http://marsprogram.jpl.nasa.gov/missions/present/odyssey.html
Another of my Uncle Jon’s friends, Gene, sent me this link http://www.mitre.org/news/digest/advanced_research/ I’m smart, just not that smart, yet. But my dad said it had some really ‘fascinating’ research, but what does he know, he can’t even put together a simple Lego Vulture Droid.
Today is Sunday, February 10, 2008, and today I kicked my walker to the curb. It was a tough 10 days, from bed, to chair, to walker, to crawl to walk. Now I just want to yell, “FREEDOM!”
A special thank you to Mike Furrey of the Detroit Lions; another of my Uncle Jon’s friends, he sent me a link to his website http://www.mikefurrey.com/ He and his wife set up a foundation to give back to the kids in need in Detroit and Columbus. It was cool to see a professional athlete giving back to his community.
From Mom and Dad – Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. We know and have known that we are being held up by and through your simple efforts. And while we know that the answers to our question lie in a different place, we are fortified by the knowledge that so many have shared their love with us and for us. We have felt it through the phone, a note card with a kind word, a meal, a shoulder to cry on, an ear bent to hear a simple plea. Each moment taken on its own is but a grain of sand; together we see a sandy beach at an ocean’s edge, and a blue sky overhead.
We now await the result of the pathology of tissue taken from Evan’s back, Scans and follow Ups have been scheduled; but so also we have scheduled vacations, and look forward to making our future plans while keeping a ‘weather eye’ on the horizon.
Mercy, peace and blessings to each of you who reads this blog, in many times the measure that you have shown us during this most challenging of times.
