Still going to be gone for awhile, but I wanted to post a quick update. I flew to see our "Little Man" thinking it might be the only time I get to see him, but, he’s a fighter and I believe because of all the prayers and good thoughts sent our way, right now, he’s doing wonderful!
They have even started him on breast milk (through a tube that runs to his stomach), and like a true family member that he is, he’s loving the fact that he’s getting real food! That’s MY boy!
Before I left, my son had shown me pictures of him, but, until you see a lil one like that in real life, you really don’t comprehend just how small they are.
I found out that all the Nurses call him "Little Man", and he’s very capable of letting his wishes be known. A little while ago his monitors were going crazy, his heartbeat was up… he was having a hissy fit. They were afraid that something was really wrong and were trying to figure it out. Well, it seems that my Grandson hates having a wet diaper. He calms down as soon as it’s changed. LOL
He’s so tiny. I had seen pictures of him , but they really didn’t prepare me for how small he actually is. His diaper fits in the palm of my hand, and my hands aren’t very big.
Please continue to have prayer for him, I believe without a doubt that is why he’s doing so well.
You have all been such a comfort and support to me. Thank you. I can’t tell you how much it means to me, how much it helps. I love you guys!
Mary Ann is staying very positive, and reading all about natural and alternative methods of healing besides the chemo etc. She will be doing them both. I admire her strength and determination.
David, you’re right, it is harder to lose a close friend. Because you aren’t a family member, you are kind of on the outside, and yet missing a friend who you spend more time with than your own family members.
I don’t know what to post about her for sure, she’s so positive, and I don’t think she’s ready to express her fears right now. Now is for thinking, planning, hoping and doing the things she needs to do.
Again, please have prayer and keep us all in your thoughts. BIG HUGS, Steph
