After not seeing my little friend since before Christmas, yesterday I visited him at home in New Hampshire. Giovanni is really doing excellent. He is walking all over the place, holding his own and enjoying life. A year ago this time I visited Giovanni at Children's Hospital while he was in a coma, fighting for his life. It's been so great to witness his amazing turn around.
Giovanni enjoyed pressing ALL of the buttons in my car!
Then he watered the flowers, more than once.
He has quite a green thumb.
More water please!
Giovanni's godmother Elena visited with me.
Elena is a research scientist at a Harvard Medical lab in Boston. After hearing about Giovanni in the news over two years ago, Elena was so moved by him that she decided to get involved. She's been by his side ever since.
Off to play in the yard!

A couple of years ago, two soldiers became friends while stationed in Fort Riley, Kansas. Now married, Cara and Shaun recently welcomed a baby girl, appropriately named Riley. She's got ten toes, ten fingers, lots of hair and two VERY proud parents!
Thanks for holding my background!
That's what godmothers are for...
Shaun recently came home from Iraq to be here for Riley's birth.
They spend hours like this.
Occasionally Riley opens her blue eyes to see her dad.
Snug as a bug in a rug!
This carriage has been in Shaun's family for years. Riley will grow into it soon.
This one's my favorite.
Riley & me!
Thank you to Cara and Shaun for having me over! Best wishes to you and your new baby girl.
