A little over 2 years ago we got some very scary news; Chris was ill. Very ill.
( if you've missed it, you can read all about it here)
At the end of that summer the medication had done it's job and Chris got 'better' pretty quick.
Life picked itself up, back to work, school and sports. Eventhough we had to go to the hospital every 3 months for check ups, and it was emotionally very hard to go back there, we always got good news and could go home..
(knowing there are lots of sick children that are not able to go home...)
He turned 18!!! A big (reasonably) healthy young man!
His favorite hobby??
Riding the 'wheels' he got from the Make-a-Wish-Foundation.
It is a reminder of his granddad... Chris' leg is the one on the right, his father had his tattoo refreshed.
So far so good!!!
