A David Moment - Oz

A few of summers ago I took David to Plays-in-the-Park, an open air theater, to see The Wizard of Oz. I wasn't even sure we were going to make it that evening as he had had 4 seizures during the day. After an afternoon nap he seemed better, but he had another 2 seizures on the way there. Maybe I should have given up and just headed back home, but he was fine for the whole show. It was a very good production and David really enjoyed it. Afterwards we went around back so he could meet some of the actors because his Uncle John knew the cast members. My brother introduced him to Dorothy (whom he could recognize right away as she still had her braided pigtails), the Evil Witch (his former neighbor and drama professor from Kean University), the Good Witch and the Wizard.
I guess he was really "taken" by Dorothy because just as I started to push his wheelchair to leave, he grabbed the wheels and headed back over to Dorothy, took her hand and kissed the back of it! She was so taken by surprise she said, "Oh, what a gentleman!"
David just beamed!
