I have to say, since we have put the word out about Bo the response has been amazing!
In April I signed Leksi up to cheer for FCCJC. I knew it was going to be a huge commitment and we all were going to have to chip in to help. WELL what I didn’t know is that the amazing people who are a part of this organization were going to open their hearts to help us. ONE particular amazing young lady has come up with a fundraiser for Bo, so this weekend and next weekend they are selling MACAN IT HAPPEN, SUPER BO bracelets at Heritage Park. When people come to you and are willing to go above and beyond to help you it’s the most amazing thing in the world. I have said this so many times, how do you thank them? I wish everyone knew just how much we appreciate them and everything that has been done for us!
Such a small world… you know people you have known for many, many years but didn’t really know them?? I have this person in my life and last night she made my entire week by opening her heart and life to fit us in it! I appreciate it so much. It never gets easy saying thank yous because as many times a day that I tell people, I wish they knew or could feel my gratitude. The people in our neighborhood, our family from school, they are all so much help and we are so lucky. I feel like I don’t say it enough and I wish I could name everyone but that is just not realistic so I hope when I mention people they know who I am speaking of.
On the Bo front we are still waiting to hear to see if we were approved for IVIG! Please pray we are, I am already dreading winter. It is only September 12 and we have spent 16 days in the hospital all in August and five in July. Bo and Brookie have done an okay job of adjusting to preschool, Brookie more so than Bo. The people at the Britain Center are so good with him, some days I feel sorry for them having to deal with him and his separation anxiety!! IT CAN GET UGLY!
I have also had some people ask if we are doing another Bone Marrow drive. I’m not sure. Winter is very hard on Bo and our family so we may just plan on another one closer to spring. Please encourage your family and friends to go to bethematch.org and have a kit mailed right to your house!
Don’t forget, if you’re at Heritage Park this weekend or next, and you have a Macan It Happen shirt feel free to wear it, many of the cheerleaders will be wearing theirs!! Stop by and get your Super Bo bracelets!!:)
