Here are some pictures of the hospital stay.
Picking out a flavor lip smackers for the mask to put him out.

I planned a small party for Timmy this year. Only three friends came. It was very small but it was a good size for him. I also made a gluten, dairy and egg free cake for him due to his many allergies. He would not even try one bite. Oh well. He just stayed with the dairy free ice cream.

Jeremy Camp "There will be a day"
He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth ; For the LORD has spoken.
3. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.
4. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
5. He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
6. He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.

In My Eyes
He was rough and lacked etiquette, Society would say
He had no classy attributes, To help him on his way
He was not a fancy dresser, and not so trimmed and neat
With simple clothes and simple shoes, he wore upon his feet
He didn't belong to a club, or drive shiny cars
And if he took vacations, he did not go very far
He didn't dine on fine cuisine, to him fast food was a treat
And he may have used a plastic fork, when it was time to eat
He worked long hours at his jobs to make an average pay
And even when he was tired or sick, he went to work each day
His job was as a handy man, his pay just made ends meet
But a few good friends and family, made his life complete
He was not well versed in poetry, theater or the arts
And wisdom was not something that he had to constantly impart
The wealth that God had given him to treasure and adore
Two loving daughters, who could ask for more
He never had much money and his life was not a show
But he is still the richest man that I will ever know
To others he was a simple man and fame he never had

I can only imagine is she forever, forever, worshiping You, Jesus?
Mom, You gave me life, nurtured and cared for me, and when you felt the time was right, you set me free. Through the years, never once did you complain or wish for things to be any different. You simply took your life in stride, no questions asked, embracing the happy moments along with the sad, accepting all things for what they were. That was your way.
Now, as a grown-up, I can reflect with such admiration and respect on the wonderful woman and mother you were. You stood with courage to meet the responsibilities that fell upon you, and sacrificed so much for the love of your daughters. What you have accomplished is more than you will ever realize. When I think of all that you have done for us and all the love you have so generously poured from your heart, I feel humbled. There will never be enough gratitude to offer to you. But my heart will always be filled with the joy of knowing your love. It is the most precious gift I have ever received. I love you for being a caring person, a remarkable woman, and an exceptional mother. This love that you have given will forever live within me. Thank you for being my mother.

This prayer was read on the christian radio station here
Back to School Prayer
Dear Gracious Heavenly Father,
Once again we send our children out into the world. We know it’s a place that won’t love them like we do and won’t always encourage them to love you. But Lord, greater are you in them than what they will face in the world. We ask you to place a hedge around their physical bodies and give them safety and strength. Guard their hearts from doubt, fear and emotional attacks of the enemy. Give them wisdom and minds that always seek you in what they are being told and let them learn to compare the information they receive with your word. Give them victories that they can praise you for. Give them failures that will teach them to be humble but not break their spirits. Give them friends who love you that they can learn to serve you along side of. Give them teachers who follow you. Bless the buildings they will sit in and the people they will be with.Father, if there is any person, adult or child, out there who might intend harm toward these precious kids; stop that plan now in the name of Jesus Christ. Put a barrier in front of that intent of destruction before it can materialize. Expose those individuals that they might be helped and saved from themselves.Finally my Savior, I ask that you would lay a cloak of peace and joy around our children. And do a good work in us as parents that we might become worthy of this great gift you’ve placed in our hands.Thank you God; for kindergartners and high schoolers and college students who will love you with their whole hearts and live lives to your glory.In Jesus name.Amen.
