{SMILE}

My senior quote in the year book was

 "A smile is a priceless gift but precious to those that recieve it."

Even as a kid I understood the importance of a smile.

I grew up in a TINY town in Oklahoma.

EVERYONE had a smile and a hello to share with you as you passed.

It didn't matter how much money you had, your gender, your age, or your race....

a simple smile could change anyones day.

I loved the power that I held knowing that all I needed to do was smile and someone's day could change for the better.

My smile has been my companion in some of my hardest trials.

It felt good knowing that even if the world around me was spinning out of control I could still control something as simple as my smile.

Friday as I sat in the hospital with Bubba I couldn't help but just stare at his sweet smile.

What a talent that sweet litte boy of mine has.

No, he wont be on a football team or run a marathon but he has a much greater talent, he touches everyone that meets him with that SMILE of his.

I put up a picture on FB of his BIG SMILE and a friend with a special needs child made the comment that her daughter would never be able to endure these days like Bubba, with that smile.

This statment got me thinking... counting my blessings.

Bubba is very much like a baby, he doesn't undestand what is happening to him.

There is no way to explain each surgery, test, or procedure as it is happening.

He could be so angry... so mad.... HATE the sight of the hospital

BUT

he doesn't!

Every time we pull into the large parking lot he SMILES, often times accompanied with clapping.

The daily demands of his disablities are enough to bring any grown man to their knees but to add on top of that all of his medical problems well.....

he AMAZES me that he can still SMILE. :-)

He has been given an amazing talent and he doesn't waste it, not one bit.

{This picture was taken just after they accessed his line with a BIG needle.}

{at the begining of his treatment on Friday I gave him a 10$ movie...
you would have thought I gave him the moon.}

{I wont lie... these days are long and hard but he is such a tropper!!}
Doesn't he look like such a pre-teen in this picture? ;-)



My sweet friend Sherrie brought me lunch and stayed the rest of the day with us.
I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am for her friendship.
I feel so blessed to have her in my life... it makes me want to SMILE! :-)

{we got visits from the therapy dogs.}

We spent time with one of our favorite nurses!
We LOVE these women and their love for Bubba makes us SMILE!

Bubba's main line was acting up.
{this is the line leading to his heart that they accsess for treatments and blood draws.}
After treatment they put TPA in his line to try to break up the unkown culprit that was causing problems with his line. {After they put it in we had to let it stay in for an hour before flushing}

Bubba was very happy Ms. Sherrie was still there becuase she let him go
up and down
up and down
up and down
;-)


 Then it was back to the room where Bubba got the I Pad and the DVD player.
He was very proud of himself.
Nurse tried to draw blood with no sucsess so we were off to xray to check on his line
BUT not before one last.......

SMILE!!!
{Can I just remind you that by this point we had been there
 8 hours and he had a HARD day and yet he was STILL smilling.}
So, Bubba we headed to x ray... with our smiles in place.
Ms. Sherrie was still with us and was such a huge help! ;)

Today we got the call from Dr. Wonderful telling us that he has put in the auth for Bubba to meet up with Dr. Amazing {the surgeon} for a date in the OR. There is a fibrin on his line. This is good... these should be any easy fix. :-)

So, in the mean time......

Bubba and I will be smilling....
How about you???

Can't help but smile when I see his face! That kid is so amazing!

You know... that his joyful spirit is absolutely from the Throne Room. What a gift to him, and to YOU!

(Because really... have you ever tried to NOT smile when you see him smiling? I'm guessing that's darn near impossible :)
