Super Bowl Sunday

Last year we were sitting in Stephen's room cheering on the Steelers on Super Bowl Sunday. A few of Stephen's nurses were Steelers fans, so we turned his room into a mini Steelers shrine. Well actually, his room was a mini sports "pub" full of lots of sports paraphenlia from Penn State to South Carolina to LSU and even the Giants! So since Stephen actually wore a Giants jersey at one point during his stay in the NICU, we're rooting for Eli and the NY Giants tonight.

I was so excited because I thought I would get a really cool sort of before and after shot of Stephen today in his Giants jersey. But I realized last night that I packed away the jersey with the rest of his things from the NICU and put them in our storage unit :( One of the downsides to living in 1,100 square feet. And of course they're closed on Sundays.

Although I was unable to get a picture of Stephen in his Giants jersey tonight, I still thinks it's a cool comparison and reminder as to how far Stephen's come in just one year. You'll be amazed!!!!!

Here's Stephen last year in the NICU. This was taken at the end of January during his fight against pulmonary hypertension. Which he totally conquered!!!

Here was a little piece of the paraphernalia we had hung in "Stephen's Pub"

Sorry these pictures aren't very good, but here's our little football fan cheering on the Giants (or Patriots depending on who you ask...I picked the Giants, Bill picked the Patriots):

We're working on signaling a touchdown. I'm hoping we'll have it down by the time football season rolls around again in August!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Super Bowl Sunday!!!!
