|I am happy that you
came to see me
play on the tire swing. It's in the park, and when I'm there, I can run, jump, climb, bounce and
see-saw, too. If you decided to run, I
would chase you
like a cougar and I would not stop until you stop.
And I’m really good at tag and hide and seek.
My feet are fast.
I’m fast, but I’m just Hunter. That’s what I like to be best. Sometimes, I jump on the bed in my Spiderman jammies. And I run around in my red cape. But, I’m still Hunter, not Spiderman.
What do you like to do? Here are a few of my favorite things: jumping, playing Thomas the Tank Engine on my tracks, reading books, coloring, rolling Playdoh balls, and watching movies. I have a lot of engines and I have blue tracks, wood tracks, and gray tracks...sometimes I play with my matchbox cars and motorcycles all around the house. I like to watch Thomas the Tank movies and Baby Einstein ones with my baby sister Lilly. What do you think of her sitting in the grocery cart with me? I have a grown up sister and brother, too. They're teenagers, Addy and Sean-Luc.
When I was a baby I was sick, and I'm glad that I don't remember a lot of it. I was the same size as Lilly is now when I was sick. When I was almost a-year-and-a-half, I fell down some stairs, and when I went to the hospital and got an xray, everyone learned that I had something inside my head that had no business being there. It was a brain tumor, discovered by accident! The doctors did an operation on my head to take a tumor out. My mommy said I looked like a bionic boy because in the hospital, the tumor was taken out and some tubes and wires were put in my chest and belly. Some tubes were there so that I could get strong medicine called chemo to get rid of the tumor everyone was talking about. Other tubes were there so I could get food in my belly when my mouth didn't feel like eating, When I had chemo, my mouth got sore, so it was a good thing that one of the tubes went in my belly. That way I could stay healthy, even though I felt pretty sick (that's what my mommy told me).
Luckily, I’m not
sick anymore. Now, I go to school, and I get to
with my friends on play dates. I don’t go
to the hospitals everyday, either, only when I
need to have an MRI.
those tubes I had? Well now, I have scars in those places, one on my
chest, and another on my belly. My head has a
scar on it too, but
I’ve never seen it because it’s behind me, so I don't even mind. Now, I can
slide down the slide on my belly and it doesn’t hurt a bit.
for coming to read my story. Would you like to learn more?
