Distance Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Pam and I are having a challenge. We've been back home in Ontario for not quite a week and it will be another week before we head back to BC and it is true. Distance makes the heart grow fonder! However, our hearts cannot get their fill of Emmett's smiles and expressions and cuddles from half-way across Canada. We will be driving back and, like Emmett as a new born coming home from the hospital in his first car ride, we will be anxious for it to be over. 

 

 

Rhonda and Roger are supporting Alisha and Josh and keeping Emmett very busy. In addition, Emmett had a visit from a physiotherapist who watched Emmett play one of his favourite games - bouncing a helium balloon. The first balloon is starting to lose it's ability to float but the second one is still going strong. And a third and fourth will be sure to be added soon! Outdoor walks and indoor baths are both highlights for our little man. Soon Alisha will be giving him permission to go in his Jolly Jumper again. It has been off limits while the area that the G-Tube surgery took place heals. Of course, then there are photo opportunities and this little boy absolutely shines when a camera is close by.

Soon we will have a guest blogger doing some writing here. Stay tuned.

 

Emmett had some further testing at BC Children's Hospital last week and he will be back this week for some more tests. I cannot say that he loves the tests, but he certainly loves everyone who is around him, supporting him, and even those administering the tests! It has come to my attention that people are concerned that I'm not sharing the full picture, because Emmett always appears to be happy. And usually he is, but I searched through my picture files and I found a few examples of Emmett and his sad face.
 

Of course, it could be that I'm sad and missing him which caused me to search out these pics. In reality, he's still a very happy little boy and his every wish will be, if we possibly can, granted!
