During the day, staff on his ward sang "Happy Birthday" and gave John a special card. As a birthday gift, I tried to let him win a couple of backgammon games. Unfortunately, he couldn't compete with my superior skill!
Later, Heather and Chris arrived with Augie in their arms and a delicious order of sushi for dinner. Birthday cake was out of the question because of John's blood sugar levels so we shared fat-free/sugar-free butterscotch pudding for dessert. Augie enjoyed the flavours of a California Roll for the first time and followed in the footsteps of his Papa with a love for butterscotch pudding!!
