Get Up and LIVE

Wow. That last post was kind of depressing wasn't it? I really should have writted sooner, but...well...I guess you could say we've been having too much fun. By New Year's Eve, the silence was gone. It was replaced by talk of football, music, dreams for the future, and how to live differently. Sometime, when he is ready, Dalton may post to this blog and share the change that is happening for him both physically and mentally. For now though, just know that he is currently off all medication (including the pain killers), he is able to eat anything he wants as long as he takes normal sized bites and eats at a reasonable pace, and he is getting out of bed and living.

I know that this may be hard to believe, but he feels like a normal person on vacation. We took the boys to the San Diego Zoo on Thursday and forgot all about the pending tests and possible surgeries. Iain is finally crawling and clapping and just about standing on his own. He has developed quite the personality and is definitely able to express his opinion about things. It's been really wonderful for Dalton to have this time to hang out with Iain after being nearly invisible for six weeks.

Here are some pictures from the past few weeks. Notice that we are out and about and enjoying life. If you are a friend who wants to "visit" Dalton, don't be suprised if he declines. We simply aren't ever home. And, besides, visiting is what you do with sick people. However, if you are up to grabbing lunch or coffee or hanging out and watching a game, book it now as his calendar is filling up fast. Thanks for your prayers and your suport and your love.

Is Iain sucking the stale beer out of that coaster? Geez, get the kid a fresh one.

I don't miss the days when my kids put everything they could find in their mouth.

Hi Dalton & Trish,
Denise gave me the website. I don't know now Dalton who has the most wit (smile) or Trish.

I am so thrilled to know you are feeling better. The boys are beautiful.

You know you all are in my prayers. I believe in miracles.

Lots of love to you and your family.

Dear Tricia,

We don't know eachother, but my husband John Kauba and I went to high school with Jim. We are thinking of you both and wish only the best for you and your family.
