The Littlest White Sox Fan


Baby Nic is probably the littlest Chicago White Sox fan, and today he and his mom and dad will be at the game when the Sox play the Kansas City Royals. Nic is a lot like the White Sox team. He hasn’t given up when down and he has spunk and spirit unmatched.

Back in February when Nic entered this world months earlier than expected, all who have come to love him hoped for the day when his day-to-day world would not revolve around doctors, tubes and machines.

Finally, after heart surgery, EEGs, EKGs, feeding tubes, respirators, heart and breathing monitors and other invasive procedures, little Nic will be a boy attending his first baseball game with his mom and dad. It doesn't get much better than this.

The littlest White Sox Fan is now my hero, this is a very nice post Shelia, it will not get much better, or maybe it will....

It will get much better, Sheila, you can bet on it! This is just the very beginning of a love that can't be matched...that of a grandmother and her grandbaby!

Go, Baby Nic...you've been through a lot, now is the time to experience a joyous World! Beautiful post, Sheila.

Sheila said...

Thanks Sarge and Marion. I know you both cherish your grandchildren. Being a grandmother has enriched my life in so many ways.

Those cold, Chicagoland days seem so far away today. Things are looking up and Nicolas' story is a testament to holding onto hope. He is a million dollar miracle baby.

And if you buy into this redneck Bigfoot scam, you might be an Obama voter.

Hey, Sheila!

You were gone so long that I took your blog off my "favorites" list! Googled it up out of curiosity and found you're back again!

Your grandson Nic's birthday is one day after George Washington's, and one day before mine!

That certainly is a momentous event Sheila. I'm sure you're really proud of little Nic after all he's been through.
