Rod, my brother's oldest son at the age of 9 on Christmas Eve day was diagnosed with luekemia (sp?). That following October he died. It was at times such a horrific battle, he gave it his all. I do not know where my brother and sister in law found or find the strength. My wife and I moved about 25 miles from them in June of that year when I started teaching. We had their other two children in our home the night he died at home. I have a grandson that just came home from Riley's children hospital again today. At this time he isn't thought to have a life threatening situation. I do not know why God takes them from us nor why he gives them to us in the first place. All I know and believe, your son is going where he will be free of the meds and pain. That doesn't help us here on earth, for that I have no words. Please, please find strength to enjoy your time, miracles do happen, the form of the miracle is not for us to know. So I am speaking from some experience, you will be in my prayers, hug him, love him, love this time and family. Don't keep thinking of the last time, think of it as THIS time. The past is past, the future will be, live in the now for now. Feel free to pm me with any thing, my brother has recently gotten his minister's license and is more at peace than at any other time I can remember him being. I can connect you two and he would be more than willing to email/talk with you.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
