It is always hard seeing him being prodded with needles, but Timmy handled his infusion like a champion! I am constantly amazed by his bravery and his strength. He has faced so many obstacles in his lifetime, but he continues to smile and look at the world with amazement and wonderment.
After our appointment I took him to a pumpkin patch, which immediately made all of the needles a distant memory. He ran, slid and climbed until it was time to go pick up Robby from school. I really wish I had his energy and his perspective on life, because both are wonderful traits to possess.
Although Timmy felt icky Friday evening and he had a rough night, we still had a fantastic weekend. The heat finally left, leaving us with cool fall temperatures. Saturday we played outside, riding bikes and catching ghosts through the neighborhood. We even had time to visit a local community festival, where my little Ghostbuster garnered smiles from everybody who walked by him.
On Sunday we caught some more ghosts and ran errands. It was nice to have a weekend at home with nothing pressing to accomplish. The next few weeks are going to be busy, so we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to relax and just have fun at home.
