mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible. -marion c. garretty
by now, most of my readers know super bo and his super mama carolyn. they’ve been in the hospital for over 30 days now with fevers, infections, blood tests, lung, liver and bone marrow biopsies and more. bo and carolyn spend a lot of time in the hospital – over 100 days this year. to say the last 30 days have been tough or even scary for the macans is an understatement. each time i see bo he seems to be fighting harder and harder and sometimes not making any headway. but last night was different. bo seemed like…bo. he was talkative, ornery, silly and having fun.
i’ve visited bo and carolyn in the hospital often but last night was the first time i took my camera. and i’m so glad i did. everyone who knows carolyn knows what a fighter she is. she is bo’s caregiver. she is his advocate. she is his strength. the bond these two share is incredible and to be able to capture this moment – it is exactly why i love being a photographer.
and to see this little guy smile, it just melted my heart.
for those in the kansas city area, save the date of august 23. we’re hosting a super bo fundraiser at old shawnee town from 6-10pm. i’ll be sure to post the details as soon as everything is finalized.
in the meantime, hug your loved ones, count your blessings and keep your prayers and positive thoughts coming. i know they mean the world to the macan family!
