Sam's turning 10
 
1 Attachment(s)
If this could be made a sticky for a little while I would appreciate it. As most of the long timers know almost ten years ago my son Samuel had a stroke in utero and had a traumatic brain injury. We were told that he probably wouldn't live to be two years old. When he was four years old many people here pitched in to help build him a bike (a special thanks to bronco610). He loved to take rides on it. On August 9th he will be 10 years old. We are going to have a blowout birthday party for him. I would just like to extend an invitation to any who might be able to make it. It will be at 1445 S. Wall Street, Carbondale , Il 62966 at 1:00 pm on August 10th.

Consider it stickied.

AWESOME! How is he doing now? Is he the brains behind your success so far in Survivor?

gunns 06-27-2013 10:11 PM

Do you have a paypal? I'm too far away to come but I'd like to send something for him.

Awesome. :)

Happy birthday to Sam!!

10 already......time flies.

Totally Happy Birthday to Sam.

The bike thread and the pics of you two using it Falconer to me may be the best thread I've ever seen on this forum.

Hope he has a great Birthday .

That is amazing how he said screw you to the experts and is already 10!

When I first learned of Sam and what happened my children weren't born yet. I don't think I fully understood how much a parent loves their child (from the parents perspective). Now that iI have my daughter (5), and son (1) I think I better understand how special Sam is to you guys.

Happy birthday Sam!

I do have Paypal, but you are not allowed to send anything. By the way, that address is not my home address either, but just the facility that we will be having the party at. Sam only accepts hugs as gifts. :)

Happy Birthday Sam!

Things go day to day for us. Unfortunately he was put on tube feeds exclusively this last year. It seemed to induce a slow down in his stomach emptying. He usually vomits after a feed once or twice a day. You wouldn't know it from him though. He is pretty much the toughest person I have ever known. He heaves his guts out, and then looks at me and laughs. Maybe because half the puke ends up on me.

As far as survivor goes, you cannot stop Sam, you can only hope to limit him. I am that limiting factor. ;)

Happy Birthday Sam! Hope you guys have a blast. Don't think I can make it to Illinois, but I hope you get a few Omaners there.

I will once again vote for Falconer, but this is a vote of awesomeness and not a vote off Survivor.

davidtkd 06-28-2013 09:10 AM

Simply amazingly awesome! Happy Birthday, Sam!!

oubronco 06-28-2013 09:14 AM

Wow! Ten already? Way to go. Happy B'day to Sam.

No, SSJ. Melissa won't be necessary on this thread. ;D

Garcia Bronco 06-28-2013 10:33 AM

Congrats Sam. Keep on keeping on.

Dukes 06-28-2013 10:55 AM

Can't believe it's been 10 years already. Seems like the bike thread was just a few years ago. Happy birthday buddy!!
