People who observe Houston will often say, "He's always got a
smile on his face! He must be having a good day!" And I tell them
every day is a good day for Houston. He's just happy to be alive.
His memory of his battle is surprisingly long. And I don't regret that.
I think it's important for him to remember the angels that fought
beside him, and the importance of being here and finding out his
purpose in life. And find ways to serve others, as those participating
in St. Baldrick's Foundation are serving him and the memories of
his friends. Houston is shy around people unknown to him, but a
fun-loving kind and giving child to those who do know him. He loves
baseball, video games, and anything that challenges him. From
what he has survived, he is fearless. And he loves Dr. LaQuaglia
and Dr. Cheung, and those who worked so hard to save his life
when no other medical personnel could.
