A disturbance in the force

My eyes are still opening. We were excited to use our free night stay at Aloft in Leawood. The boys were thrilled for a night out at a fancy hotel. But all it took was a dip in the pool to fast forward to reality once more. Mason lasted 2 minutes in the arms of dad, the water was deep, and swimming not so easy. At least that is what we intpret from tears. Maverick ran along splashing, cannibals, and flipping every which way, but it wasn't the same for any of us. We watched t.v. the rest of the night. Mason woke up around 12, moaning and crying, a headache and who knows what else. Breathing at times being difficult and not being able to understand how he feels. Do we ask too many questions? He uses a communication device to type certain words, it is frustrating to realize you can't do it on your own! The steroids have seem to make him feel more sensitive and he easily upsets. After seeing him stumble last night again and not be able to sit up this morning........there is a disturbance in the force. (Star Wars clone wars is blaring in the back) But there is a disturbance in the force that's all I can say.....

I wish so hard that I could make him feel better. I am sending all my love and hugs your way. I pray he is feeling better after last night. Please call if you need anything, even just to get away for a few minutes to talk or vent. What ever you may need, I am here. Love you all so much! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers as always.
