a little positive energy

This past weekend Emily and I had a girls trip to Houston for her to compete in the teen side of a pageant. She did very well and we had a wonderful time! However, I did miss Jude. When I got home and walked through the door I said "Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude" and he smiles so big!!! He was so happy to see me too.

So even though I appreciated the get away with Emily I appreciated coming home too. When I administered Jude's medication I stepped back from his bed for a second. I looked at his IV pole with his food bag hanging from it. The bag was full of his nightly feed and water. I thought to myself that I was happy to be home and very okay with our life. I felt a peace and a calmness as I turned off Jude's light and told him "Goodnight Gorilla"

Ps. I mentioned I would share quotes from a site I found. Here is another one "Let the knowledge that you always have a choice empower you to meet one more day in a negative situation by radiating, and basking in, your own positive energy."

Hey - I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to tell you how much I appreciate reading your story of life with Jude! Also, here's a link full of cerebral palsy resources that I think you might find helpful. Keep up the blogging and good luck to you and the family!
