There are times when I definitely think that my brother Andrew is channeling himself through Henry. Lately it has been happening when Henry is playing in a make-believe football or basketball game. He plays for HOURS. He does exactly what Andrew used to do, jumping everywhere, making the faces of the players, and also being the announcer in the background. He always makes me sing the national anthem before he plays -- a song that is truly piercing when I sing it. Yesterday he did a football game for 2 hours - he was sweating by the end. No joke. This afternoon he added a "half time" show to his gig. I had to take a video as it was hysterical. I will take a video "the game" sometime this week.

They are asking us to keep the kids from being there too much given that they could pass something on to him. Both developed a cough after visiting yesterday, so we are going to steer clear to be better safe than sorry.
Because Mark was at the hospital, I took both kids to the Blazer game tonight. Hysterical. Henry made sure to wear his Oden jersey and then INSISTED that I get one for Francie. She now has a Rudy jersey (I will take pictures tomorrow). Aside from the slight scene I made trying to get two kids, three plates of food, my diaper bag, and Francie's "baby" into our seats, it went relatively well. Francie loved everything about it. Everytime they played the music to get people to cheer she thought it meant it was time for a dance party and she proceeded to head bang and crack people up around her. Henry was very focused on getting down the "new numbers" on the team. For those of you who don't know, Henry knows all the players numbers by heart. When I told him that Andre Miller picked "24", the first thing he said was "that is Kobe". (Yes, a little rain main-ish). Having three new numbers on the team threw him a bit, but I think he has it all set and is ready for the season. Go Blazers.

Although he is far from out of the woods, we are ecstatic he made it past this milestone!
At the same time, we pray for the family that lost someone and only hope that some comfort and peace can be found in the fact that their loved one's heart gave Gordon, a wonderful father and grandfather, a chance for a longer life.
Thanks everyone so much for your prayers and continued support.
