That is great, Sam! Sounds like Corban has a zest to be active. I'm always delighted to hear of young people surviving serious illnesses and grabbing at life.
Our youngest son was hospitalized at 3 months old for several weeks and we almost lost him to understaffing. My wife stayed at the hospital until we could bring him home. He is now 49, 5th degree Tae Kwon Do and has run marathons and mountain bikes. Married and 2 beautiful daughters 21 and 16.
A year later our oldest son at 5 years old, became very ill and was in the hospital with temperatures hovering around 107. Several weeks lapsed before they could identify the virus. He went to the US Marine Corps out of high school, stayed 13 years and came home with his family. He is now 53 with two sons 26 and 24.
It is interesting how children are influenced by things that they do not understand. Our daughter, now 51, wanted to know when it was her turn. We were dumbstruck.
