A birthday

He was the earliest of my children, a mere three days late, and the only one who was not induced. At 7 pounds 8 ounces he was our lightweight.

Big Guy turns 15 today. A year ago I was not certain he would make it to see this day. He is more stable than he was. We are stronger than we were. This week we begin discussions about transitioning him back home in the fall.  

We still face great uncertainty. But we have him today, and for today that is enough.

Happy birthday, Big Guy. We love you.


  1. Happy Birthday Big Guy.

    So glad that he is more stable and you are able to think of transitioning him home.

  2. Praise God and Happy Birthday to Big Guy. May this be the start of a wonderful year not only for him but for all of you.

  3. Happy Birthday to Big Guy! May God richly bless him, and all of you, in the coming year.
