A word from the Mrs.
Since all of you have taken the time to leave a message I thought I would 'invade Mickey's space' and write a little myself. I wanted to thank you all for checking on Cody and most importantly for keeping him in your prayers. Prayers pulled him through the first time and I have faith they can do it again. Our trip to New York was a bit depressing to say the least. Dr. Modak told us that although the initial treatment to a relapse in the liver is responsive - he said it 'almost always comes back.' He said it was 'one of the worst places for a relapse.' It's been hard to pull ourselves back up after our 'talk'. I wanted you all to know that it really helps to read your words of encouragement and to know that you all are praying for our little guy. Your words are read daily with tears in my eyes. Last week Cody said he wants to grow up to be 41. When I asked him why he answered 'because I want to be a daddy.' We took a walk down the road to my sisters house yesterday. Along the way we picked a plant that has the seed connected to soft white cotton threads - the things that blow in the air and you make wishes on them. Cody says 'you're not supposed to tell your wishes or they won't come true right?' After I agreed he said he wanted to tell me his wish anyway. He said 'I wished I would grow to be 10.' Although he may not really understand the differences in the numbers I think he is starting to pick up on things that are being said. In some ways this was easier when he was 2 and was just learning to talk. These moments just make my heart ache beyond anything imaginable. For those of you who don't know Cody he is extremely lovable and just as feisty. He already had several detentions during the short time he was in kindergarten. We are counting on his spunk and fight to see him through. He has surprised the Doctors before and we're praying he will do it again. Please keep the prayers coming his way - he needs you all very much. Thank you for everything!
