Where does the time go? I always know it is time to update when one of my good friends from college starts emailing me! (Love you, Li) The last few weeks have been very "normal" and busy. We have been doing school, cub scouts, playgroup, six flags. I love times like this when the medical can take a back seat to the kid stuff we love doing.
Now for the surprise..... We are leaving in one week for Alex's make a wish trip! I was asked several weeks ago to speak at a make a wish fundraiser. Alex will be the "star"! (they really are called ambassadors, but don't tell him!) After I speak they will bring Alex up on stage and ask him some questions and then surprise him with the news that his wish has been granted and we are leaving! Alex has absolutely no idea. He knows we are going to the breakfast, but that is it. He doesn't know that a lim will pick us up that morning! He doesn't know that some of our closest friends will be there! He doesn't know that Theresa and I are madly packing and making lists while he sleeps! I absolutely cannot wait to see the look on his face when he finds out.
To add to the magic Mimi will be here! Mimi had planned a trip to see her boy. She arrives Wednesday. She will be here which makes it all the more perfect. We only wish all of our friends and family could come! Don't worry there will be TONS of pictures and video.
We are going to squeeze in lots of fun while Mimi is here...the pumpkin patch, an air show, six flags, the zoo. Alex and Bruce will even be spending a night at the zoo with Cub Scouts so Mom and I will get some girl time!
So overall things are going really well around here. Please pray for Buggy to stay healthy and feeling good over the next few weeks. I want this trip to be the magical experience he so deserves. Please pray for me as I speak on the 24th. It is so hard to talk about my incredible boy without getting emotional. Please pray for safe traveels for my mom and for us. Thank you for continuing to support as through our incredible journey.
