Wishbone Day 2015 Recap

Wow.  Every year we are blown away by the love and support you showed us and the OI community.  The world was so yellow yesterday! It was beautiful! (If you're just finding our blog and wondering about the yellow, hi! May 6th is an annual celebratory day, named Wishbone Day, for those living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta.)

Wishbone Day is comparable to Christmas in my heart (in terms of how happy it makes me)'s so full of happiness, hope, love, excitement, support....and I so want Isaiah to feel that way too.  Being affected by something like OI can sometimes make you feel alone, misunderstood, worried, and sometimes lonely.  But on Wishbone Day, this negative feelings just don't exist.

This year, Dave had to be out of town for work, so I tried to turn our house into a yellow wonderland for Isaiah. 

He was in a love/hate relationship with the streamers.

We had lots of fun with yellow balloons; we played exclusively with yellow foam blocks, Megablocks, cars, and balls.  All the while my phone would ding and beep, alerting me of all the love that was pouring in for Isaiah.

We did have a slight temperature for some of the day (not sure what's causing that) and a nurse stopped by to do a quick flush of his port but he was back to the fun in no time.

We were unable to go the State Capitol this year but guess what?  Senator Folmer again made a resolution to make Wishbone Day official in the state of Pennsylvania!  Woot Woot! We are so grateful to him and his team, along with Senator Smucker, for making this happen.

It was a fantastic day.

I think Isaiah agrees...

I jumped the gun on creating the Wishbone Day video so I did miss a few pictures, but here is the compilation of (most of the) photos we received yesterday!  So many people showing their love and support for Isaiah...

Thank you so much for helping to make this Wishbone Day so memorable.
