Here he is reading a card that Rose Ann made him! His first RAK!! Thank you, my friend!!
The card, which has the pinking edge nestability poked his hand, and he said, 'ouch' it was funny (don't worry he didn't really get hurt). I was so blessed to see him, Kay was happy I saw him on the 'up' side! We took him over to the playroom in the big wagon and he was pretty unstable at first, wanting Mammy to hold his hand, but pretty soon he was walking all over the place! When we finally convinced him to go back to his room, he was bound & determined to PULL his big 'ol wagon all the way back to his room! He was walking at a pretty good pace, getting all the attention of the nurses who were amazed at his improvement, and not long after we started our trek he started to slow down considerably while Mammy kept asking him if he wanted help and he replied emphatically, 'no, let's go' as he waved his hand toward his room! I watched in amazement how it seemed he was oblivious to his injuries! He was so precious!! I nearly cried as I said good-bye not helping but wonder when I will see him again since they moved to the coast.
If you'd like to bless little Derek with a card/small gift, please see my previous post Request for RAKS for Derek for info & perhaps you will WIN some great stamps/supplies! I will keep this open until the end of the month & draw a winner at the beginning of March.
