A change in plans ...

We were supposed to be heading to Rochester for Michael's MRI tomorrow but we had to reschedule. Michael has been fighting a high fever and a cough for the last 2 days so he can't have anesthesia. We have rescheduled for 2 weeks from now. But, the good news is Michael seems to be on the mend.

Michael had a great time playing soccer this fall.

His favorite position was definitely goalie.

Now it is on to basketball.

Michael had a great Halloween. He dressed up as Bumblebee (a Transformer - go figure) and actually got a lot of use out of his costume. First there was a church school party, then a Boy Scout party to which we took ...

... Monster Mouths (apples, peanut butter and candy corn) and ...

... and Freaky Fingers (cheese sticks and almond slices) to share.

And to wrap up the holiday ...

... a parade and party at school.

Then on Saturday, Jenny and Ralph made it home. Before heading out to Trick or Treat, Michael and his big sister crafted this masterpiece ...

On a side note - Michael received his beads from Beads of Courage today. If you haven't checked out their website, click on the link in my sidebar and check them out - it is an incredible program. Michael and I will be stringing his beads to represent the time line of events he has gone through for the last 2 years. I will post a picture when we are done.

We have our appointment with Michael's neurologist next week, I will let you know how we make out. Please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne.

I'm really glad to see your family is doing well, especially Michael. I remember when he was only 3, maybe 4? He has grown beautifully... boy, how time flies. He was such a smart and spirited boy then, I can't imagine how he is now. You are truly blessed with what you have. He looks just like you, and a lot like his older brother.

Congratulations to Jenny. And also congratulations to Brian. I hope you both are very happy, you deserve it.

And to you, Joanne and Jeff, it seems as though you are increasingly growing in happiness. I hope it continues. Keep your spirits high and take care of yourself and your amazing miracle of a son.

Keep up the posts! It makes us that take things for granted, appreciate the little and big things in life.

God Bless You,
An old friend
