Making Dad Proud!

Hi again! I know it’s been a bit since I posted but hey it’s only a few short days before Christmas and it’s a really busy time right now. So stick with me because I might have a few more days than normal in between posts because of everything I have going on at the moment. I’m also getting ready to go into surgery again next week. It was whole lot quicker than I had planned and it falls smack in the middle of holidays. I’m not going to argue with the date though! Wait times as many of you know can be long and so I feel very fortunate that this is happening on the 28th of December.

The Christmas season is in full swing and last Friday I went to my youngest daughters Christmas concert for school. As any of you parents out there know the evening came with its fare share of moments where you felt like saying “only my child would do that”! The entire night my girl kept tossing and throwing her hair back as if to say “look at me and how beautiful I look”! Really aren’t those the moments though that mean so much as a parent. Your kids might drive you crazy a lot of the time, but it’s those moments that build our memories of them. It’s not about us on their special night! The bottom line is that they are having the time of their lives up on stage and it’s a huge deal to them. She was having the time of her life even though you would never know it from the picture below.

It wasn’t until we got to the treats afterwards and being able to visit with all the other kids from preschool that the party really began! The sugar really started to kick in and it was next to impossible to get a good picture with her cousin at the Christmas tree. Any photo ops were quickly ending and this was the best that I could manage under the circumstances.

I do have to say though the evening was great and I couldn’t be prouder of my little girl. On Wed I have my older daughter’s concert and then it’s out to the lake for a couple of days for Christmas before coming back for surgery. I just put together a quick post for tonight but I’ll be back in a day or two with another! I’ll talk to you soon.

About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I'm married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family! In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn't fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it! As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.
