They Say...

... a picture is worth a thousand words.  Good thing, since I don't have a thousand words in me.

Several of you have asked about Michael and how he is doing.  I haven't had many answers, other than what I hear from my Daughter, since Michael is a lousy communicator. (Yes, Michael, I said that and it's the truth)  When he isn't being held captive in the hospital, he rarely carries on conversations of any length and only messages on occasion, usually when I pester him.  As long as he is doing okay, I'll take that to him being sick any day!  It is what it is, we try to deal with it the best we can.

April is a month of several birthdays in our family.  My Daughter turned 32 on April 9th and my Grandson, the baby turned 3 on April 7th.  Saturday, we got together to celebrate and I was able to see, firsthand, how Michael is doing and I'll have to admit I was impressed.  I think he looks pretty darn good, what do you think?



I can't believe this little guy is 3 years old... already!

April 14th is my Son's fiancee's birthday.  Happy Birthday, A!

He does look good!

If you ever have the opportunity, ask him if people say this to him .... "A heart transplant? Really? You don't look sick" .... I still hear this one, frequently, LOL.

Be well ... and congrats on all the birthdays.

It's good to see Michael looking so well. The 'little one' is a cutie with those big blue eyes, but I'm sure you already know that.

Betsy Adams said...

Wow, Cora... Michael does look GREAT... That's the best I've seen in in a long time. I know you were thrilled.

My sons don't communicate like I want them to either.. Think it's just a 'boy' thing!!!!!

Congrats on all of the April celebrations... Your family deserves some celebrations now.

Hugs,
Betsy

Holy cannoli! Yep- the color in his face, and the fact he doesn't look gaunt or thin- you'd never know. Amazing sight to behold and so thankful for this bit of stability for you all. Happy Birthday wishes to all!

I think he looks very good. His coloring has certainly improved. Looking at him you would never have guessed his medical history.

I was sure, when I glanced at the photos (before reading this) these were taken well before the whole ordeal. He looks fabulous. It's hard to believe what he's been through and is still going through.

You have much to be proud of. You're a woman of determination, strength and love to an immeasureable extent.

Continued blessings and prayers.
