Marcelo is making excellent progress! Over the last two weeks, he has been walking on his own more and more. A few mornings ago, we were shocked to find Marcelo sitting on the sofa watching television before any of us got up. When we asked him how he got there, he looked at us and smiled.
Although Marcelo’s walking is big news, some other news has been grabbing our attention lately. As a manager at Kane’s Furniture, I received some tickets to the April 5 Tampa Bay Rays home game. A friend of ours has a friend who knows Evan Longoria, the Rays’ star third baseman. When Evan was told that Marcelo was going to be at the game, he immediately wanted to meet with Marcelo down at the batting cages before the game.
How awesome is that!
Marcelo is very excited. On top of all that great news, a St. Petersburg Times reporter and photographer will be there doing some background on an upcoming article. If you are watching television Tuesday night, make sure to look behind home plate to see Marcelo with his Mom, Paola. Just look for the big smiles.
Don’t forget to spread the word and let everyone know about the game and our efforts to raise funds for Marcelo’s therapies. We’ll keep you posted on the events of the game!!!! Go Rays!!!!
A proud father
