    And Xerobull being Amazing just got him a Switch. Mom just sent me a video of him unboxing it and already playing it during dinner. He apparently loves playing it at the hospital so this was a great get; especially if they're going to be going around to ballparks the next few months.

    Thanks, buddy. I love the people we have on here.

    Welp. The little guy has been in the hospital this past week. Gist is he had to have emergency surgery and had a collapsed lung where 2 liters of blood had to be drained. Doctors are saying he has a couple more months of a normal life.

    She did want to thank Xerobull for the Nintendo Switch again. She said it's been a life saver.

    Lance & Jose came by to say hi too.

    It is with the heaviest of hearts that the news received yesterday was nothing anyone wants to hear. William may look like he is feeling amazing and healthy but his labs and scans say different.
    William has lived longer than we expected. However, with a collapsed lung and bloody fluid STILL draining is making his body weak.
    His prognosis of a “good” quality of life we are looking at 6-8 weeks. So, please I beg for prayers of comfort for not only William but myself, his father, his step mom, siblings and close family and friends.

    I’m very sorry to hear this news. I’m glad that he was able to really live life to its fullest as much as possible over the last year.

    Thank you for keeping us informed.

    He's still here. Your Switch was the best gift, and I sent him several.

    I should've known. I loved video games since Atari.

    I talked to Bre about how I could help.

    She answered "My son is Dying."

    All I could text was "Always here"

    There's no more help any of us can give her and her family and it totally sucks.

    Glad I could give him some happiness. Boys love video games.

    You can be there. That’s enough.

    And, tears are on my face, you gave him the coolest gift. And I gave him an Evel Kievel Stunt cycle along with others. But yours was his favorite.

    Nothing to do with William, and more to do with death. I've always known and loved this odd movie.

    I don't fear death, but I still loathe watching the young ones go before I do.

    You did amazing.

    Just went to another funeral. And after several glasses my buddy thought I made a post about me. I didn't mean to, but I guess I can be a narcissist at times. This is a friend I've known 30+ years. His GF was driving me around. I promise, I don't offend folks on purpose!

    This is how y'all make me feel inside.
