Kind of rough day… Day 858 22MAR11

Joshua had a little bit of a rough day. He was really battling his anxiety this afternoon when his teacher was here because Renee had left to go to a doctors appointment. He managed to get through it but it set the tone for the rest of his day. It pains us to see all that Joshua wrestles with in his thoughts, things that we cannot help or control. He is faced with the fact all too often that his friends are sick just like he is and some of them will lose the fight. I sit and talk with him to try and alleviate his fears all the while feeling helpless inside. He sees the world through much older eyes than his years belie. I wish it were otherwise.

After dinner he wanted to go out and play a little hockey so we had a spirited scrimmage in the street and both us came in out of breath but somehow much more relaxed than we we started. He finished his night cuddled up on the couch with me watching the end of the hockey game before heading off to bed. I hope that he finds a little peace in his dreams.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

My heart aches at this kind of news. Just wish there was a way that the heaviness you carry inside could be lightened or obliterated so you could enjoy being a little boy.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
