The laugh is back!

I really haven't had much to report these last days with Skyler. We have a routine going now that seems to work, spending as much time as he can tolerate in his wheelchair, then moving to his bed in the living room. So it is back and forth, and get out for an errand every now and then so he can get some fresh air.

He is enjoying himself more, and laughing at his DVDs that he has put together. His latest thing is to watch something on TV at the same time that he has a computer game running. We wheeled his old ancient Mac into the living room for him because it runs a very old bowling game he loves. The sound effects are funny, the bowlers all have lines like "Oooo, tough split", "Those gutters getting too wide for you?", and "Shake it off, shake it off." Silly stuff but he really enjoys it! So it's good to see that laugh back, now if would just sleep... Zzzzzzzz...

Got linked to your blog through the Lady that Doesnt do Lunch and I must say I'm glad. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

You and your wife are such great parents. How old is Skyler anyways?

Skyler likes bowling, huh? May I suggest "The Big Lebowski" on a continuous loop for his listening pleasure? OVER THE LINE!!!

Nothing like hearing your kid laugh to uplift the spirit a bit, no matter how tired you are!

HL: Your kids like not sleeping also, huh?

Constant Drama: Welcome and thanks for dropping by! Appreciate the nice words, Skyler is 16 and a junior in high school.

Kirby: That is a great movie, and I also liked Kingpin!

Raven: It was a nice change, believe me!
