Golf and guitars… Day 753 06DEC10

Joshua started off his day with a trip to the clinic for counts. He is doing good for now and all is normal. He came back home to spend some time with his teacher getting his school work going. He is continuing to do well and didn't have any problems today. After a bit of a rest the boys and Renee headed over to Feather Sound for a golf tournament in support of the Children's Cancer Center. Joshua had been asked to speak at their golf fundraiser so he got up and made a little speech about what the CCC does for kids like him. The food was provided by Carrabas and Jarrod told me the steaks were pretty tasty. PArt of the evenings activities was a silent auction. One of the items auctioned off was a guitar from Montgomery Gentry which was won by a lady in attendance. After she received it Joshua walked by and said "nice guitar" at which point she handed it to him and said that she would like for him to have it. Needless to say he was pretty blown away and was still all smiles when Renee sent me a picture.

I have hung his guitar up in my office to keep it safe and he is looking forward to giving it a test drive tomorrow when we get up in the morning. So it turned out to be a very special evening helping out an organization that does a lot for our cancer family.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

That guitar is almost as big as you! What a wonderful gesture the lady made in giving it to you.

Glad to hear the counts are good and I can't wait to see the video your Dad will make of you testing out your newest acquisition.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Wow Josh! That is totally awesome! There are so many wonderful people in the world - it's a great thing to be surrounded by those fighting for a cure.
Take care and stay warm. Love, Laura and Frank
