CCC Night… Day 672 16SEP10
Tonight was our bi-weekly meeting at the Children's Cancer Center. It is something I always look forward to and am very disconsolate if I can't attend. Being around the small group of people there and hearing and sharing our stories and experiences is as much comforting as it is saddening. But it is vitally important to all of us. Tonight we got to add two more families to our fold and hear that one of our own, a precious little girl, now cannot walk because of the side effects of chemo drugs we all give to our children. We are stronger though because we are not alone in the wilderness of cancer.
On a much happier note: Joshua had a really fun time with Jamie, Christian, and Allie. He did all of the things one should do when spending the night at ones older brother's house and although he only got five and a half hours sleep he came home with a big smile and played vigorously with his buddies tonight. It is definitely great to be a kid.
Jarod took a few pictures of his LED strips in action. He strategically placed them to light up some of his favorite items on his shelves.
