SHARED PICTURES

My dad sent this to me today.  It was from his 7th birthday a year ago.  I'm grateful to see this picture.  It makes me smile.  We had just gotten home from our LONG hospital stay in Utah with the med flight back to the PICU at DHMC.  He had only been home eight days.  24 hours after this picture was taken, we were BACK in the PICU with RSV.  It was sad.  Another LONG PICU stay.  But I'm grateful that he spent his birthday with family at home.  He didn't often give us that luxury.  Something about birthdays and his favorite PICU.  I faithfully made him carrot cake every year.  And I ALWAYS made sure he got a taste.  :)  
I LOVE YOU BENNY!
(and miss you terribly)
