The BUG had a special visitor arrive on Wednesday
This is Oliver the Owl.
Mr. Oliver travels the world hoping to educate and raise awareness about SMA. He also brings a heaping helping of smiles everywhere he goes. The night he arrived we just sat around the ventilator and listened to tales of amazing adventure and travel. Oliver sure can tell a story. He was telling us about all the cool places he had been when he recognized some of the kiddos in Jadon’s pictures. He said, “I know those beautiful girls”, pointing to Miss Gwendolyn and Miss Getty, “I got to visit with each of them.” While The BUG wouldn’t admit it I could tell he was totally jealous.
At the Play-Doh center we made a little Oliver the Owl
We have also discovered that Oliver really enjoys Jadon’s therapies. Definitely more than Jadon does. One of The BUG’s therapies (we call it the THUMPER) vibrates the Gunkers in his lungs loose so we can get them out. Oliver obviously thinks its pretty fun, but as you can see in the video The BUG is much more interested in Shrek on the DVD player. Of course this IS about his 30th ride.
Oliver is with us until Tuesday night and then he travels on. The BUG is sure enjoying his company and I am sure we are going to have a great time these next few days.
Oliver loves to visit SMA kids so if you are one or you know one be sure to ask him to come see you.
