This is for the April BOM challenge. The challenge was to create a LO about what my
one wish would be if I only had one wish to make.
If I had one wish and only one wish, it would be that there was a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
You are and always will be my "buddy" no matter how old you are, I will always treasure the bond that we have. Anytime I see you, you brighten my day.
You were diagnosed with CF when you were only five months old and you have had many tough days with this terrible disease during the past nine years but it never breaks your spirit. It amazes me to watch you grow and having gone through so much but you always maintain such a positive outlook on life. You are always such a happy and playful little boy and never seem to be angry at life or have an ounce of self-pitty. You are such an inspiration of how to live life to the fullest and play with the cards that you were dealt.
I have been visiting with you every time you are in the hospital since your were just a baby. I can remember walking into your hospital room back when you were in a crib and looking at you with all sorts of monitors and tubes hooked up to you while you looked so small and fragile and I would be afraid to touch you. The nurse told me it was ok so I picked you up out of your hospital crib and sat in the rocking chair holding you for hours watching you sleep. One time I even climbed up in the crib and cuddled with you.
We've come a long way since then. Now when I visit you in the hospital you are old enough to play, read and watch movies with. But what we really enjoy most is when the nurses let you out of your room, we walk around the unit and say hello to everyone then take the elevator down to the lobby and walk up to the playroom where we play the free video games. One time you even tried to bring me down a hallway that I had never been down before and I tried to tell you there was nothing there; it just looked like a utility area. But you insisted so I followed you and down at the end of the hall there was a doorway. When you opened the door it led us into what seemed to be a secret garden, you looked up at me and smiled that big beautiful smile and said "see Auntie Cheli, I told you". It was beautiful and I was thrilled that you wanted to share this special place with me. We spent almost an hour walking around the beautifully landscaped garden and played in the grass, walked through arches that were covered in rose vines and we even sat under the biggest tree that I have ever seen. I treasure every single moment that I spend with you and I know you feel the same way, I can feel it. I plan on spending a million more wonderful moments with you.
I wish to watch you grow, graduate school, get married and have children. I wish to watch you conquer any dream you may have. And most of all, I wish to watch you grow old and be completely fulfilled and happy with life.
