“Spring” in His Step

After battling multiple infections for 10 days, Rudy returned to school on Monday and his teacher reported to me this morning that he was back to his old self by Tuesday…active, happy, feisty.  The spring in his step is back and with all the fun to be had this week alone, we’re grateful he’s feeling better.  🙂  Rudy’s school carnival is Friday, the senior prom at DPHS is Saturday and, of course, Mother’s Day is on Sunday!  Woo Hoo!  Lots of life to live the next few days.

We were all sad Rudy was so sick but this past week also included a couple of significant milestones for the big boys…

Rudy was featured in a promo video for a Make-A-Wish Air Miles Drive that was aired on our local news last week…the folks at KEYT did a good job…click here to see the video.

Looking ahead, Rudy has his appt at the UCLA Heart Clinic next week.  We don’t expect any major changes but we’ll keep you posted.  Thank you for your prayers and good wishes for Rudy’s restored health.  He is a blessed little boy to have you in his life!  🙂  Happy Mother’s Day Friends!!!
