I couldn't sleep last night. I was trying to recover pictures off a bad hard drive for a customer. Then I was thinking about what I was doing at that time 4 years ago. I was in the delivery room waiting along with my wife for Elliott Richard's arrival. We had no idea the what we were in for.
When it finally happened I was beside myself. It was the most amazing thing I had ever seen. I lost complete control over my emotions and sobbed like a baby. Words can't do the experience justice. In that moment my entire life was forever changed.
I have made several movies to document our experience in the nicu and I watched them all last night while everyone was sleeping. Seeing him in the NICU relying on a machine to breath and having his little hands tied down (so he could pull the tube out again) puts so very many things into perspective.
I will try to upload the videos as soon as I can.
Happy birthday Elliott Richard. You have no idea how much I love you but I will spend the rest of my life trying to show you.
Lost and Tired
