"I can't really play with my toys because I am always at the hospital." What a profound and sad statement issued by Joshua today as he was picking up toys in his room. I am sure that his how he feels sometimes.
Today was a day to enjoy the fact that is not that cold outside anymore, after all it has been 24 hours since the temperature was below freezing. High time for it to get back to the point where you can go outside in a pair of shorts and not be trying out for some arctic reality show.
Miss laura came to spend some time with us this evening and brought Joshua and Jarrod a cool Indiana Jones Lego kit to build. Those boys just love putting together lego's, and they can do it amazingly fast.
Oh yeah, the Super Heroes sign. That was a gift from Miss Laura and her husband Frank. He found it at work and brought it home, on his bicycle no less, for Joshua.
Joshua really does qualify as a superhero: he is brave; he is strong; he can throw up and go right back to playing with his brother; he goes through all the pain and suffering of his treatments and can still melt ice with his beautiful smile; he is not angry about having cancer. Yep, my boy is definitely a superhero.
I found out tonight that another child, a little girl, named Jessica Rose Kohut died on friday. She was fighting Neuroblastoma. Our prayers go out to her family.
