Max has a brain disorder called Lissencephaly. Kids with his disorder, they don't live very long. When he was little, I used to hear they had between 3 months and 3 years, something like that. I've had 18 years so far and in those 18 years, we've spent very little time apart. He's stayed the night with Grandma a couple of times. We were apart for about 36 hours when each of his sisters were born. In my whole life, Max is the biggest constant. Taking care of him, it's my most important job. And I love it.
Much of the time I've been worried - he's so fragile, so dependent on me for everything, and I never want to let him down. He's also incredibly tough. He has scoliosis and lives in pain every day. He has seizures, this week, with his cold, he's been having more than usual.
Max doesn't laugh much, but today I was telling Mom how earlier in the week he did this sort of spoken laugh, sort of haa, haa, haa. As I was telling her, I ran my hand down his side, like tickling and he did it for her, the haa, haa, haa. It was so sweet.
On another note, I just saw the funniest commercial.......has anyone seen the new Guitar Hero commercial with Kobe Bryant, Michael Phelps, Derek Jeter (sp?), and..........oh dang, who was that last boy? Oh Tony Hawk! They were doing a sort of Risky business performance. I cannot wait until my girls see this.
Well, that's about it. It's late and I need to get to bed. I wish you a wonderful Thursday. Oh and if you are interested in the effects of color on attraction, then please check out my post Put Your Red Dress On.
