A couple months ago I shared a blog, Navigating the Bittersweet. In it, I discussed Bacci's struggles, how he sometimes has trouble walking, and why I was thrilled to meet Dr. White. Be sure to check it out if you missed it!

P.S. Bacci continues to have his good days and bad days, but overall, he's still doing very well! He still has his spunk and attitude, frequently forgetting his body is not as young as his spirit and mind!
