Awakening

The toils of chemo rage around us all the time. Cole is slowly progressing but twelve days post chemo and he is still a little slow, a little nauseous, more than a little groggy, and still on fluids and antibiotics. He is gradually eating more but his poor system and belly are wrecked. He always asks to cook something and help me in the kitchen but the most we get out of him afterward is a few bites. I am incredibly thankful for those few bites because I have no idea how he must feel. He has also been showered with gifts this past week which we are so delighted and grateful for. With hot days and long hospital stays, I have been awakened to the fact that we need new toys and games and activities to keep us all sane. I just wish I had words to express how proud and happy Cole is to receive every one of them.

I have also been awakened to the fact that we are surrounded by true-form angels all the time. When you walk into a room and you should be cold but you are warm, they are there. When you hear that little voice picking in your ear, that is them. When you are frantic with worry and suddenly feel comfort, they are helping you. For these children, each of them is escorted serenely by angels every day. Some of them are lifted through surgery, some are given restful sleep, some are guided to heaven. Two of our dear friends are pained today with a tragic and untimely ending to cancer. After 14 months here, Dylan Bellow was carried to heaven yesterday. And 11 year old Wesley Wood will be resting at home on hospice. I cannot begin to tell you how many stories each child shares with us about speaking to angels. I rest easy knowing that the angels have been with and have literally talked the children through their illness. I guess as adults, we just lose that sense of spirit. Maybe that is why these kids are so tough. They know that they have God standing with them at all times. How comforting!! I guess that also means that sometimes I have to be more astute with Cole because he probably knows more than me and definitely more than I give him credit for.

To all our prayer warriors, please continue to keep us in your thoughts. Also pray for Dylan’s family as they head back to Louisiana tomorrow (www.caringbridge.org/visit/dylanbellow) and Wesley’s family. Additionally, our friend Sam Gillott (www.caringbridge.org/visit/samuelgillott) will have another brain surgery on Tuesday.
