Counting the days…

It's just not right that Wilson's family is counting the days....

They should be counting the days until that little guy wakes up on Christmas morning, runs to the tree and begins to tear open gifts like any other little person who anticipates the joy of Christmas morning.

Far too many children are in pediatric cancer centers fighting a fight that they just aren't prepared to face.

'The Washington Post' ran a story this morning about a five year old who is celebrating his last swallow of cancer meds today after a long hard climb back from a children's leukemia.  His numbers are good and strong and the doctors carry the hope that he may have been cured of his disease.  The hope is that he will move on from here and be just another happy healthy little boy who will grow-up and have a good life.

His time of counting the days are now over.  His family is looking toward adapting from a cancer household to a normal home.

Wilson, if you can get someone to read these last couple of days of blogs, know that we are in this with you.  We are counting the days and we are lifting with everything we've got.  Feel the strength of positive thoughts coming your way.

We are counting the days....

Thank you Katie for sharing Wilson's story with us. We may be few in number here but we've all been patients and/or caregivers in the cancer war. It always touches my heart to read about the little ones who are fighting something they clearly don't understand. My son works at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and he posts often the stories of the many little ones who are in the fight. He often highlights the service dogs who visit them and bring some joy to them in the midst of their difficulty.

I have a prayer list that includes many cancer patients and several are little ones. I'll add Wilson to my list and lift his name to God for his mercy and healing. Always remember that deep in each us is that "little light of Hope". It fiercely fights against the darkness so you, your family and friends and especially Wilson latch onto it and it will bring you through. God bless you all.

Laurie, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to keep little Wilson in our prayers.
To Wilsons family...this is a very special community that you have become a part of. Not one of your choosing but one that will support you and lift you. I really hope he will be home to enjoy Christmas with his family.

This is Wilson's mom checking in - thanks for your words of encouragement! Neuroblastoma treatment is rough and our dear sweet Wilson is such a trooper. We hope he recovers soon from his neutropenic days and can be happy at home in time for Christmas. We have been in the hospital since 11/20. We are thankful for every day with Wilson and thankful for the chance to fight this terrible disease!
