I did not blog last night as I received some input about being too “dark”.
Hey, baby, these are not bright skies.
Not every day is sweetness and roses.
I deal with that and so does Nonni and Grandma Penny. I put my thoughts out because it helps me be a better Leukemia Mom. So does running. So does getting in my car. So does resting. I invite no one to read this unless you want to. If you do not like it, do not read it. It is pretty simple. I am going to be persistent in being REAL about what is happening to my son, to Lily and Blaise’s brother.
Today we received a very sweet care package. We have received many. Too many to count. Micah’s whole class sent letters, too. We just received a dvd called. “Why Me?” A Charlie Brown Vid about a girl who has Leukemia. It was the first that Ashton heard he would lose his hair. He is upset about that.
We still cannot leave he room until his ANC comes up from zero.ZERO is so dangerous I want to put him in a bubble. Too dark? Sorry. It’s reality.
Last night the entire nursing staff created a wedding. Ashton’s Bunny (aka: Chocolate) got married to another bunny named Vanilla. There were bridesmaids, a veil, a marriage certificate. He was thrilled. The bunnies even had a baby this morning. The staff even made rings for them and Vanilla has a diamond. See, it isn’t ALL dark. We make our light where we can make it. We take it hour by hour. Darkness is part of this journey.
Deal with it. Ashton does.
