Oh baby. You made it through a whole year. I am so proud of you. You have been so strong and happy throughout it all. Our lives were forever changed last July, but along the way we have all grown so much. Your brothers and Mikayla are also becoming stronger people because of your trials. They are learning to be more self sufficiant, compationate and understanding. Our family has grown closer together ever since you became a part of it. You bring out the best in people.
You are teaching us, extended family and our friends so much about love and life and what really matters. We have made some new friends along the way, and hope to make more.
Tonight I sit with you in room 4408. It brings back so many memories of last year as we spent this week of July in ICS for the first time. So many familiar faces. We have gotten to know the staff all too well over the past 12 months. They are great people. They know you and love you here too. It is late Friday night. You have been fevering since Wed morning. On average your temp has been about 103- 104. Your ANC is zero. You feel like crap and I feel helpless. I want you feel good and come home so bad. All I can do is be here for you and pray that your body will be strong enough to kick this virus soon. I know you have it in you, but I wish I could do something for you.
I Love you so much. Be strong little one.
I'm a very happy and delightful person. I love spending time with my family. I am active and affectionate. I am strong and inspiring. I love all living things and I am easy to please. My mom thinks I am very easy to love. I bring joy, light, and love to our family. I am like a sweet sticky substance that bonds our family together. On July 6th, 2009 When I wss only 13 months old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I started Chemo Therapy the next day. I'm not going to lie.. it is nasty stuff, but it is saving my life. I am doing my best to not let it slow me down. I love life. I have a lot yet to experience and I am always reaching.
