Wow! What an outpouring of love and care came Ammon's way on his birthday! Thank you to everybody that participated. Ammon has read all the comments but once he is up and able to get to his own computer, he will read and re-read these comments. It will be a highlight of his day every time he reads them. We would have him do his own posts, but it's kind of difficult right now because he has to be lying down due to the EVD in his head most of the time.
Our entire family was deeply touched by this experience! I will post a few pictures tonight of the happenings of his birthday. We were few in number at the party (one family in the hospital having a new baby and two others keeping their little ones home either due to colds or the fear of colds, which is smart), but we had a good time anyway. Ammon received a lot of nice gifts but I think he liked the visits as much as anything. He loves people and loves visits and phone calls.
It was great to be able to serve cake to all the nurses on the floor and to other doctors and visitors that came along. It was a very nice celebration.
Ammon became a new uncle for the 21st time last night in the middle of the party. His new niece is named Grace Carol Clark. They will be able to celebrate their birthdays together forever. It was a great way to end a great day.
Thanks again, everyone! You made our day.
