Day 168 – 169 — Birthday Weekend!

IMG_20190202_122327850_HDROn Saturday, Feb 2nd morning, I woke up so happy with my dad by my side. I am finally 11yr old.  Everyone wished me Happy Birthday and I went on to playing on my I pad. Suddenly, I heard my brother and my mom singing Happy B’day with a huge bag of gifts. I was so surprised because I told them that I do not need anything. One by one I took my gifts out and I was so happy to get each one of them..Perfect choice of gifts ! As I was playing on my Roblox, I saw there is lot of money available to buy stuff. I looked at my dad, he smiled and said “Happy Birthday Arjun.” It was awesome. I got gifts from my brother and my grandma too. The best thing I got was Fitbit because now I can track my steps and it will motivate me to keep moving throughout the day. It can also check my blood pressure, my heart rate and calories burnt. I actually gained 3 pounds in last 10 days…sooooooo happpppy!!

I had the chance to enjoy with my little cousins on Sunday. I got Play station 4 for my IMG-20190205-WA0010birthday from my aunt and uncle which was a huge surprise. I actually had 3 cakes for my birthday, one on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. It was so awesome to be feeling good and being able to play with my littlest cousin, running after him all around the house. On Saturday, my friend/neighbor came over with a bag full of cards and a generous gift. When I looked through the bag, I found the hand made / written cards from my all my classmates. I am so Thankful to everyone who spent the time to make the cards for me and making my day so special! It was an overall a great Birthday weekend and hopefully I will be able to celebrate my next birthday on the ice with my team and with my classmates in school!

    Happy 11th Birthday! It was so great seeing you and your family at the 3×3 tournament on New Year’s Day at Protec, That was definitely the highlight of the day for Colin and I. Glad to hear that you’re able to eat and are gaining weight.

    I also read on a previous blog that you were starting to think about playing hockey again. Please let me know when you are ready. Colin and I would be more than happy to assist your transition back out onto the ice. I can speak for the entire New Jersey youth hockey community that we will all be rejoicing on that day.

    Stay strong and keep fighting. We pray and think about you every day.

    Coach John

      Thank you for all the happy wishes. It was a very special day for me on that 3 on 3 hockey event. It couldn’t be fun without you. Your thoughts and messages always give me a good feeling when I don’t feel good. I will always remember you for all you have done for me. I eagerly looking forward to training with you!
