Yay for Minivans. Yes...we also swallowed our pride a couple years ago and totally ate our words that we would "NEVER" own a minivan! Amazingly it has proven to be a lifesaver at times when several people are trying to go somewhere and to lug all the stuff we have when we go places. And I would imagine Collin has a few gadgets to include. Glad to hear you are enjoying some great days outside. We continue to pray for you daily...if not more.

Hi Collin! It is good to hear you are getting out and about in your wheels. Collin M is a crazy man in his wheelchair...I think he needs driver's ed for wheelers! Tell you mom and dad that we have been thinking about the dreaded Mimi van too. Between loading Collin M and his chair in my SUV my back is pretty sore.

I hope the sun and fresh air are healing to you. We will continue to pray for you and you family. Thinking of you often,

Suzanne and Collin M.

Early a.m. here and thinking about
you Collin. Just going over your website updates and guest book to see if there are any new entries.
Hope we can all see a new video of you outside at your house soon. It is so very quiet and peaceful here, before the world wakes up. Maybe you are awake right now too Collin? If not, sleep tight. So many prayers out there from all over I am sure. Love you so much.

Hi Collin! Just thinking about you today and wanted to say hello. You and your parents are in my prayers. My Collin tried to be a daredevil this weekend and crashed his wheel chair...luckily he escaped with only minor scrapes. I think it hurt me more than it hurt him...I'm sure your mommy knows what I'm talking about.

Hang in there Collin, you have a ton of people praying for you.

Yes Grandpa Doughty, you are such an
important branch on our vast family tree. You have the voice of kindness.
Spirit. Love. Forgiveness. Hope. You truly are a wonderful grandpa
to Collin and Jordon and Jacob. Have you written any songs to those three lately? I think our Doughty family needs a new song of joy in a garden at Black Lake. All the kids praising and dancing and smiling. Put a rainbow in it too. Anywhere for that matter. You are the one to do just that.

Hi Collin, I looked into the mirror today and saw an old man. But it was still me, Freddy Doughty, the same little boy I use to be but different. Things change but not our soul. You will always be Collin, the little boy playing the piano, eating snow, giggling, and giving hugs. God made you and He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it. You are still here Collin and we will always be here with you. Now and far beyond forever. And one fine day we will all be much happier. That is God's promise.

dear little love, Micah and Chet;
the reading today is sooo on target.

"When you don't know what to do--
WAIT! God never panics and
is never under pressure."

the panic, frustration, fear- that is us in our human mind. You are so loved from above and here. Collin, our hearts connect with you through love to say still be brave and courageous. We ask God to give answers to the doctors and nurses.
I love you! I pray and wait and pray, while you listen for now to the heavenly music of angels when you sleep.
Our God who created you knows all, and promises that He will answer.

Psalms27:14 (what this refers to)
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage,and he shall strengthen your heart; wait,I say, on the Lord.

In my defense about the poop, I had just propped up Collins knees to give him a little change, he was in the big recliner in the living room watching the television, so I took the opportunity to lay on the floor with an Ice Pack for my ailing back, when I decided Wow there's jelly beans so I put the jar of jelly beans on my stomach, and that's when they got home and found me lying on the floor, and Collin leaking. I think the propping up of his knees was what did it. The good thing about the whole mess is that they are allowing me to stay. There very nice people. Great Mary

My dears, I am so very sorry to learn of Collin's hospitalization. I have not visited the Yahoo group site in a long time and had been unaware. Typically, with so many of us now on the social utility, facebook, I find it easier to connect there. I must go through the archives and update myself to what has happened. In the meantime, I see that Collin is home and that should bring some comfort and peace to be in familiar environment. There is nothing worse than worry for one's child. God Bless and continue to heal. XO Velvet, mom of Samantha, angel

Well, there you are back in your old room surrounded by a jungle of friendly stuffed animals, two curious cats, and a doting dog. You can probably see what we can't see... those angels who surround you as well. We are asking God to send you strength and comfort and some rest for your mom and dad who are so doughty. Did you know that the dictionary says doughty means "strong and valiant".( Great Mary is a doughty too).YOU ARE SO LOVED :)

Hi,
My name is Camille Hammond. I can't remember if I signed your guestbook or not. We live in Texas, but I'm from Bellingham. We love Seattle! My daughter Emily had Ring Chromsome 18, she passed away 2 years ago, when she was 4 1/2. She was pretty severely affected, never being able to walk, sit, talk, etc. But she brought so much joy to us, and I just love your attitude with Collin. It's the same attitude we had with Emily. We tried not to treat her any differently than we would have a "typical" kid, and we had so much fun with her! And she learned so much that the doctors never thought she would. Like sign language. My thought was that even though Emily's body wasn't perfect, her spirit is perfect and knows what is going on. And now that she's passed away I know that that's true-she knew and was aware of all that we did with her, even though she couldn't always express it. Our blog is crhammond.blogspot.com if you ever want to see Miss Em. I know your road is going to be long, but you are such fantastic parents; Collin is very blessed, and I know you are, too, for having him in your life.

Dear Collin,

We're so happy that you get to go home tomorrow. Thank you for letting us follow you-you're such an amazingly strong boy. We know that once you return to your home with your family and your pets, you'll start feeling much more relaxed and will feel better.

There have been ups and downs since we heard about your fight 2 months ago, but the one constant thing we've seen has been the incredible amount of love surrounding you. Your mom and dad, grandparents, Great Mary, their family, friends, and neighbors, your C18 family-so many people praying for and loving you from afar. We always enjoy reading their comments and learning about you from them.

We'll miss the little updates but look forward to hearing how you're doing at home! Take care, little man.

Much love,
The Griffins

Just stopping in to check on Collin. Glad his surgery went ok. The GOOD NEWS about this is now you know that he will let you know when he's in pain, his brain knows pain. I pray his lungs will get better, probably with the episode not long ago probably didn't help matters any. I look forward to your update when you say you're headed home and he's doing great.

praying that your famous and precious body is healing and you get lots of restful peaceful sleep now. And soon some cute peeks at mommy and daddy and who else is in the room.

Now I'm not positive, but when he was a little boy he spent the night with Jeremy, and the next day the blender was missing.....I think that it is possible that he has an addiction to kitchen ware. Anyway, if it is returned in a timely manner no more will be said about that. I hope you continue to have good days, so you can come home soon...... Love you most Great Mary
