More Make-A-Wish pictures...

I had asked one of Michael's "wish girls", Cheryl, if she knew if there were any pictures of the ribbon cutting ceremony at the Make-A-Wish Walk for Wishes. She contacted the local office and someone forwarded these pictures to me. (Thank you Cheryl and Crystal!)

I think Michael's hat may be just a wee bit big! And, do you see the blue hammer in his hand? (picture right) When Michael was a toddler he carried a toy hammer with him everywhere he went. Some kids have security blankets - Michael had security hammers. He doesn't do it very often anymore. And, the funny thing is I am so used to it that I didn't even notice he had it with him at the walk until I looked at these pictures.

You can see the ribbon that said "Make-A-Wish" that had just been cut to signal the start of the walk (picture left). That is Michael to the right of the gentleman that cut the ribbon.

Michael hasn't had the best week and we aren't sure why. He has a cold but it doesn't seem that bad. He is just very sad but when I ask him if he is sick or in pain, he just say "no Mama, I'm fine". He seems to cry and get frustrated very easily the last few days. We have spent a lot of time cuddling and rocking.

Michael doesn't have chemo this week or next so maybe the 2 week break will help his spirits. We still have to go to Syracuse on Friday to see Dr. Kennedy and have lab work done. But, at least it should be a short trip. And since Michael won't be sick or tired from chemo, we may try to do something fun. Please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne
