Battle Wound


This, my friends, is Dakin's very first rug burn. You might wonder how a child with a very limiting neuromuscular disease acquired such an injury. I will tell you.

He was sitting on my lap and decided it would be fun to roll off it, on the floor, 'all the way over', as he says. He performed said trick maybe, oh, forty thousand times. And ended up with a rug burn.

Soooo...we learn two things from this. One: Dakin is just like every other boy in the world. He loves to roughhouse and play. And two: that limiting neuromuscular disease? I guess no one told him it was limiting.

Go Dakin! Every little boy earns their scars and battle wounds! Never let them tell you something is impossible! I bet it was a blast rolling and rolling, with lots of laughter!!

That "owie" is almost something to celebrate to know that it represents his strength and fun!
