I would not be surprised if the VetSchool did something. But I am sure athletics will roll out the welcome mat.

hope and pray LSU rolls out the red carpet for this young man. Please allow him to be the team when they walk down the hill. Please allow him access to the locker room before and after the game. Please allow him access to the sideline during pre game activities.


They 100% will

Not only because it’s good press but coach o as a person just seems like a great person as well. He’ll take care of him and his Auburn family. The kids on the team will follow his lead as well.

Guppy - van guy is on alert waiting on mom. They are going to get the deal of a lifetime. He's a great human being and touched that he's getting to be involved. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I appreciate your help in everything as well. I know you have been following this Colton story since the beginning and bumping it so it gains some attention on Tigerdroppings! We might just have to get a GoFundMe board. Imagine the lives we could change!

You are doing a great job Guppy! Also, thanks for the updates from the family. I can’t wait to see pictures and videos from their trip when they get back if they don’t mind posting them.

They need to get them a black van with a big eye of the tiger on it and Colton's name on it or something.

Thanks for posting the article. What a great read. It really reminds you how much of an impact you can have on someone by just being kind and showing some interest in them. This kid was surrounded by Auburn fans his whole life but some LSU baseball players taking the time to talk with him and show him some kindness cemented his love of LSU. Amazing! and Geaux, Colton!

The latest I've heard is that she is still searching for a van that can seat up to 7+ as she has a very large family. Will update if I hear any more information.

re: GoFundMe for Colton to meet Coach O (Colton finally meets Coach O!)
Here is the latest post form Colton's mother on his success from his Magec rod surgery:

quote:

Wow how a year has already flew by since Colton had his MAGEC Rod (scoliosis) surgery! He has done absolutely amazing!!! We have made the trip to children’s every 4-6 weeks for an entire year! We are getting all the kinks worked out for his next surgery... we are thinking it will need to be done before January and most likely before Christmas! This MAGEC surgery will consist of removing the current rod he has outgrew and placing 2 MAGEC rods. One on each side of his spine. These are really the neatest things! So blessed these are an option for Colton... before these patients had to go back into surgery every 4-6 weeks to have the rods lengthened. These particular rods are lengthened with a magnet! The picture is the before and after of how amazing the MAGEC Rods have worked for him! His spine is so much straighter!! And I just know he can breath better now.

I also wanna share something that has just had me all in my feels the past few days... so Colton the other night was talking about LSU and how he can’t wait to go and meet Coach O and all the football players and cheerleaders and bands and just everyone in general that shares the same passion he does for the ole purple and gold! Well he was watching YouTube of the football players coaching practice and he looks at me and says “Momma I wanna do that when we go!” I look up at the tv and it’s the football players tackling each other and doing different drills. I noticed he was really watching them and after a few minutes he says “Momma I can’t do that... my legs don’t work like that!” I couldn’t even respond to him. On the inside I was bursting with tears but on the outside I couldn’t let him see me hurting for him! After a few minutes I said “hey you never know Colton you might get there and they will wanna show you some moves!” He just giggled and said “yeah!” It’s very rare to hear Colton talk about things he “can’t” do... but gosh when he does it gets me!




Pretty incredible that they can lengthen the rod with a magnet. This saves Colton from having to go into surgery every 4-6 weeks.
