QUOTE & UPDATE

My eleven-year-old gets out of the hospital later today. This morning when we woke up in his room, he turned on the TV and there was Kung Fu Panda, a movie we saw together when it came out. I couldn't quite hear the dialogue, as the sound is in the remote device that was on his bed (I slept in a fold out chair) but he repeated a quote that "the master" (an old turtle) says early on in the film that I've heard before and don't know the original source, but here it is the way my son said it this morning (with admiration, saying how smart it was):

"The past is history, the future a mystery and this moment a gift—that's why it's called the present."

Ain't the truth. It sounds like his mind is working just fine.

Good to hear he will be out soon. Spent a lot of time in hospital ER's over the years with my own kids and with my parents. Give him a hug.
