A Walk In The Park

                Definitely a walk in the park it was not. These past few weeks for Luke have been so terrible. We finally found out the cause of his pain he has been waking up with. After all the walk in the doctors, we finally found it was a double ear infection. It's pretty much gone now, thank god! He really has had a few ear infections and I wonder if his DiGeorge Syndrome has anything to do with it. One of the effects of this DiGeorge Syndrome is a low t-cell count. Luke was right on the safe line on the t-cell count. But when he does get sick, It's no walk in the park for him. It hits him hard,  but he does seem to recover pretty diligently.
It's so good to have him back to himself. Our local library offers free passes to local events, and one of them is to the airplane museum. When we walked in , you should of seen the look on Luke's face!  To be honest, I was just as amazed as he was. We took a walk around the whole museum, and in the whole time we were there he did not stop smiling. They even had a table you could walk up to and build a little parachute made out of a Dixie cup and a piece of thin plastic that actually works!  Finding a place to park was easy and only a short walk to the entrance. But otherwise we had a great time there.
   We were also able to take a walk in the park across the street from where we live. We haven't been able to because of his ear infection. It pretty much grounded us for a couple of weeks. We usually take our walk in the park every day, its a ritual for us now. He gets some good exercise and some fresh air. We also frequent Stanley park. That's a nice place to take a walk thru. You can feed ducks and also have a wonderful playground for kids. Its one of the better parks in our area besides some of the other good state park by us    .http://www.nps.gov/index.htm Here is a good link for any information on any parks  in U.S. Its an awesome site just to even check out!

I will be posting more information on the DiGeorge Syndrome with some of the symptoms and effects and some good links for support and information. I really would like to know who said that life is just a walk in the park, they must be a pretty happy person!
