David's 21st Birthday!

Today is a big day! David turns 21 years old today! It's hard to believe! I don't think he has stopped grinning since he got up this morning. This week he did the finger count-down with the bus drivers every day. I think they all got a kick out of how excited he was.

        The festivities started yesterday when the bus driver gave him an early present - a T-shirt (she knew how much he LOVES new T-shirts) and a Happy Birthday pin. He is wearing both in the picture. Then this morning I put him on the bus wearing a huge cloth birthday hat with candles on top. He was decked out! From what I can tell, school was all about David today. I sent him with a ton of cupcakes. He came home with a huge balloon tied to his wheelchair that one of his classmates had given him and the hat still on his head.

When he got home, I showed him a fun e-card his Granddad and Aunt Wanda sent him. He really got a kick out of that!

       He doesn't ask for much for his birthday. Usually his list includes the latest Pokemon or Mario game for his DS hand held game system. As you can see, he was pretty thrilled. Next week we will have a  party with a few of his friends.

I know it's been a while since I updated David's blog. There really hasn't been much to report since there hasn't really been any positive changes from the DBS surgery. Today's post is all about David's birthday. Soon I'll write and give an update about the most recent happenings concerning David.
Thank you to all who sent David birthday messages on my Facebook page. He loved it!

 I created a photo album of the last 8 - 10 years of David on my Facebook page. Feel free to go over there and see them if you want. Just click on Facebook to get there.

Thanks again for following David's journey!
The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you!
