Holidays have always been something we’ve anticipated and put energy into over the years as a family but I’ve noticed this year that holidays are becoming familiar to Rudy and his anticipation only adds to our joy. Rolf pulled out all the stops in constructing Rudy’s robot costume and that certainly added to Rudy’s excitement…Rolf cleverly adapted Rudy’s Rifton walker which made it easy for Rudy to maneuver but his stamina was an issue. Luckily, Rudy was content to wander around the school courtyard during the lengthy school costume parade on Friday and was happy to make two passes trick-or-treating around our cul-de-sac last night before calling it a night. I parked Rudy’s robot on the lawn to welcome the trick-or-treaters that came to our house and it became a popular photo op prop for all who visited! Ha Ha
Halloween marks the start of my favorite season…a string of meaningful holidays made even more special this year with Wilson coming home for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! Rudy also begins a long list of doctor appointments starting with cardiology bright and early tomorrow morning and ending with neurology just before Christmas on December 17th. I’m always grateful for the consults we have with Rudy’s specialists every quarter but it does certainly add to the hustle and the bustle of this next season. Praying for encouraging reports and, dare we ask, emerging options. 🙂 Happy November Everybody!
