Brother Bonding

Everett had his 5 year well child check up today and Hewitt needed a blood draw and to get fitted for a helmet. So, I took them together and they had some much needed bonding. Everett got to witness what Hewitt routinely goes through. Hopefully he won't be too traumatized by the whole thing. It takes 3 of us to hold Hewitt and draw his blood. This might be normal for a 3 year old, (don't know) but it is not fun to watch. Everett was not expecting to see that and it definitely got his attention and hopefully perked up his inborne protectiveness over his little brother that I know is in there somewhere. We were at children's hospital for one of the appointments and they have such fun things there. When we got in the car Hewitt said "That was such a fun Dr.'s appointment!" I'm sure it helped they both got new books and stickers to take home.

I ran across your blog from another person. I just sat there and wanted to cry and I saw what you and your family are going through. I can't even imagine. My prayers are with you are your son as you try and fight this horrible battle. Please leave me a message on email if you wish.
