Dear sweet Rock Star,
This has been a tough week on your Momma. We have been here at UVA for 10 days now and I miss home. Then I stop whining and I think about all that you have endured these last two months and my heart swells.
We are so proud of you. You are such a brave warrior and we are so proud to be your Mommy and Daddy. We have watched you endure a hard surgery, lots of chemo, abdominal radiation, lung radiation, and CT scans. You have never complained, whined or cried. You are a star patient and lots of doctors and nurses have fallen in love with you.
We cannot wait in ten or twenty years to pull out all the get well cards, signs, and such to show you. We cannot wait to tell you stories of your bravery as you fought cancer as a child. we have packed up with care every card we have received so we can show you one day again so we will all give glory to God for getting us through the nightmare.
You have been a reminder to us all that God is worthy of praise regardless of circumstances. Often when nurses would enter our room they would find you with your IPad singing praises to our faithful Lord. You have opened so many hearts to Jesus without preaching one sermon. You are a reminder that even little ones can serve the Lord.
You are our hero. We know sweet boy that God has big plans for you. We know from the bible that God looks upon the heart, and that is great news because your heart is so big and giving. Your smile lights up the room and your stubborn spirit is no match for cancer.
You are also a constant reminder to us all that God makes no mistakes when he blessed you with your designer chromosomes. You are fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator and we think you are perfect. You make us want to be better people and you have reminded us that matters of the heart mean more than material possessions.
We know tomorrow you have radiation, chemo, and a blood transfusion before we can head home for the weekend. That sounds like a big day, but
