No Riding Today

I rode each day this week so took today off. Instead I went with a young friend and his mom (also my friend) to Children's Hospital where he underwent a procedure. This sweet little guy has been diagnosed with a form of muscular dystrophy so he needs a little extra help getting weight on.  Today they changed out the feeding tube for a button.  He was a trooper.

That's a difficult place to be. As you can see from this video, he's a happy little guy who seems pretty healthy. Many of the kids there are not. The worry and anxiety on the faces of the parents is difficult to observe. It cuts right to the heart.

I was so impressed with the staff there. They were all kind, engaging and loving to our little guy.

I get the idea he has seen VeggieTales a few times. LOL
I dream of a time when there are no sick children. So nice of you to go and be with "mom".
