My sweet little Emmett John will turn 5 years old tomorrow. He’s had a long and challenging journey thus far but is here with us today and for that we are really grateful.
I haven’t quite worked out the details of tomorrow’s events but they will likely be simple.
We are of modest means and anything too exciting will just cause him to be overstimulated and miserable. Right now he wants Little Caesars Deep Dish Pizza and Crazy Bread.
As far as birthday presents are concerned, he remains undecided and so we’re working on that as well.
I can’t believe that he’s going to be turning 5. It seems like just last week, he was wrapped up in his wallaby blanket, fighting off severe jaundice. It seems like just yesterday, that he was believed to be both deaf and nonverbal.
I remember him having surgery to end his fever cycles.
Unfortunately, he’s entering another painful cycle as we speak. The mouth sores are appearing this morning and this means the next 10 days will be painful ones for him.
Having said that, he’s come so far in the last few years and I literally couldn’t be any prouder of him.
We were told that he may never develop language and today, he’s talking in full sentences.
Way to go Mr. Emmett John. I can’t wait to celebrate your birthday tomorrow. Daddy loves you sooooo much.
