Yesterday was Halloween, and Aren had a ball. MaryBeth got him some black sweatpants, a black turtleneck and a set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle weapons that he proudly wore all day. He described his costume as “a cross between a Ninja and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle." Since Aren couln't leave his room to trick-or-treat, MaryBeth left a box of candy outside the door with a sign that said, “Help me trick-or-treat. Please bring me some candy when you come in”. He was very excited to have the candy coming in. Knowing Aren, I'm sure he was pretty pleased with the fact that he didn't actually have to go anywhere, either
That's not to say that he just sat around in bed all day. For the past week or so, they've been able to unhook Aren from all of his IV tubes for several hours each day. Yesterday, he took full advantage of the situation. At one point, he decided that he wanted to “Ninja Fight” with MaryBeth. Aren, of course had his Donatello Kitana blades and his throwing stars. MaryBeth had to make do with a stethoscope. Apparently, a ninja has to be able to use anything as a weapon. When MaryBeth started to attack, however, Aren got a little upset. Exasperated, he explained that the proper form is to show some “ninja tricks” before you actually commence combat.
So, there he was, throwing his sword in the air and swinging it between his legs when Dr. Komani walked in. Aren stopped for a minute and looked at Dr. Komani. “Umm… remind me why I’m still here?”
Dr. Komani just shook his head. “I was just wondering the same thing.”
