Last Saturday was Colin's 30th Birthday, I had plans for a special, adventurous, yet low-key and memorable Birthday celebration (exactly what Colin would want, I know right? no party? no huge cake, no big celebration?!).
Hudson had different plans, he thought they should wrestle, he gets rowdy when they wrestle, he doesn't know his own strength, or perhaps, more accurately, he hasn't master his strength or sporadic body movements and he is sort of spastic like his mama. Needless to say, somehow in all the rolling around, he kicked Colin in the cornea. Yes, the actual cornea, not just the eye, the cornea, and yes colin has a history with his cornea...remember this???!
Anyway, the kick resulted in an abrasion to the cornea, light sensitivity, pain, and an abrupt end to the Birthday fun :(
Thanks Sharlyn, they were quite possibly the only successful part of the day. Since Colin didn't want a big celebration for his birthday and since we live so far away from many of our dearest and closest friends. I thought we should celebrate in different way so I asked our family and friends to send notes, stories, antidotes, memories and/or pictures of Colin. I hid them through out the house for a Birthday surprise, unfortunately due to his injury he was not able to find or read the majority or the messages. (p.s. if I missed asking any of you I am so sorry! I was not the best sleuth at secretly getting all Colin's friends emails and I had a lot return undeliverable :(
Hudson finally gave in and resigned to napping with dad. If that doesn't melt your heart I don't know what will.
