Tonight as we were laying in bed Skyler asked me "Mom when I have to do all my hard scary stuff does it hurt your heart?"  He was right on.  Thats exactly how I feel and it reminded me of this video Skyler's grandma's friend made, and our song.  Whenever Skyler hears this song he knows that its his song from mommy.

Hi Crystal,

When I got to work, like always, first thing I did was check the blog to see how Skyler is feeling. I watched the video, had to pause it 3 or 4 times to compose myself and stop crying. The first time I heard that song by Rascal Flatts, I instantly thought of Skyler and how this song fit both of your stories so well. To hear it put with the video made me so emotional. Looking at all of the pictures and seeing how far Skyler has come brought a smile to my face. I wish I could find the words that will say how much his story has touched my life. He is the strongest little boy and he has the strongest mommy.

Much Love, Brandi

You are in my prayers and I hope Skyler gets better soon and that you can find out what is wrong. LOVED the movie even though I cried:)

You & Skyler are SO strong. You are stronger than the strongest man/woman in the world. I can't phathom everything you two have gone through. I check this blog every day to see how Skyler is doing. He's come a long way. I hope this current stay in the hospital isn't too much of a setback for him. I pray that it isn't. I wish there was more I could do to help you guys. I am honored to be racing in the Bountiful Triathlon in August for Skyler.

i watched the movie. I can't believe how much you both have endured!!!! What an amazing and inspiring miracle to STILL be smiling and holding on to your faith. You should be so proud of yourself! I am deeply touched by both of you. "The pain NOW is part of the happiness THEN" --C.S. Lewis......Praying for you both!
