I don’t think our family has enjoyed itself more celebrating Rudy’s birthday this year. The Heart Walk was such fun because it demonstrated the community that has surrounded us. To give an idea, we bought sixty Rudy-Blue balloons to hand out to our walkers…and we ran out! After all the activity on Saturday, Rudy’s actual birthday passed rather uneventfully. As the schedule turns out, Rudy doesn’t have school on Mondays which serves him well as he usually sleeps in after weekends full of sibling fun.
It had all the makings of an uneventful, mellow day (and pretty much was) save for the last-minute call for his monthly visit to the lab. Turns out the only phlebotomist who can get to his veins was in so they called to get it in. I guess the birthday treat is that it only took her one stick, but I’m not sure Rudy saw the upside.
