Domani Joseph - Happy Birthday

Today Anne took Joe to Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC for a procedure.  He has a fluid build up around his lungs.  The procedure involved inserting a catheter in his chest to allow the fluid to drain.  They drained a liter out today.  There is still about a liter left.   With the catheter he will be able to drain the fluid out as needed.

It was a long day for everyone, especially Joe and Anne.
They left the house at 8:00 this morning and didn't get home until 7:00 this evening.

Joe seemed to be okay.    He looked tired.

Ross and I babysat for Domani.

Last year at this time we were visiting Anne and Joe at a different hospital.

Today is Domani Joseph's
 first birthday.   

When Anne and Joe got home, we had a little celebration with a birthday cupcake for Domani.

Domani means tomorrow in Italian.

I hope for many tomorrow's Joseph.

What a year it has been.
