When it rains it pours....

I came home last evening with Justin and Daniela. It was nice to spend time with them. They are trying really hard to understand all of this. I drank two beers and watched a little animal planet. We went to bed around 10pm and I let the kids sleep with me. They really enjoy that. Around 12am I awaken by Justin throwing up. All he kept saying is "I'm sorry Dad, I'm sorry..." After getting everything into the washer I fixed the couch for him and gave him a bucket. He had a long night. Daniela slept through it all. He is not feeling well this morning. I've told him that he will not be going to the hospital with me today. He understands why.

I just got a call from my mother back in PA. She said that my dear Aunt June passed away last night. She was such a sweet and caring person. I'm so sorry that I won't be able to make the trip up for her funeral.

I haven't been able to get in touch with Diane this morning. I guess she and Cody are trying to catch up on their sleep. He ate some yogurt yesterday before I left. I worry about his eating. I know that he will be getting nutrition through his IV soon but that is not enough. He really needs to eat more. When the more potent chemo is started he won't want to eat at all.

Mickey, no wonder you fill those racing shoes so well. Life hands you many pairs of shoes to fill and you rise to the challenge.

Mickey,
It is Sunday Morning. That means a bunch of your friends are getting ready to go to church and remind their friends to pray for you, Cody, and your family.
