What a handsome young man he's become!!
On his birthday we showered him with the cards he received .....Grand total of 54!! WOW ~ Thank you for taking the time to send him some birthday cheer. We opened and read each and every one to him. I'm amazed that out of all those cards there wasn't any duplicates!!
For a birthday treat we took Danny to go see the Movie "Sing" at the theater.
I can't say that being 12 was easy on Danny. What a rough year with many illnesses, and a few of them were VERY SCARY. In addition to Danny being pretty sick most of last year we not only lost an amazing nurse that we had for 5 years, but pretty much all of Danny's medical team has parted ways. Some of the physicians I wasn't to upset/disappointed to see them go, but others WOW it was a shock and it still hurts. We won't be the same that is for sure, but I know we will be ok. I am in the process of building a new team....literally from the ground up. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise, but right now I'm still riding on auto pilot and in shock.
Even though Danny was 12 I tend to want to think that he was actually on his 13 year of life which means all the bad 13 crap will be behind us. So being 13 will be a breeze, right? Just let me reel in that imagination for alil while. I know the older and bigger he gets the harder things could be on him, but he's made it this far and we'll keeping doing what HE does best...Proving them Wrong!!
I am just so proud of my young HERO! All that has been stacked against him, all that he has endured ~ and he is still HERE. He still manages to put a smile on his face and he still continues to fight.
Despite all the hurdles and set backs last year Danny still had some pretty amazing highlights and adventures ~ Movies, Dive meets, Emma's wedding, Cross country RV trip to CA (San Diego Zoo, NHRA museum, Vegas, Tanked, Kounts Kustom Cars, Grand Canyon), boating, swim parties, and hanging around friends and family........
