Thank you to all of you who responded via the blog comments and to those of you who purchased a sticker to contribute to Sam's medical fund.
He is doing well so far. He started chemo yesterday. He tolerated it well. He has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma Stage 4. He had numerous tumors in his abdomen, bones, and spine. This was not the news we had hoped to hear. However, we stand in faith that it is something that we cannot control and just continue to BELIEVE that God is in control. If you want to follow his story, his mom is providing updates on Facebook on a page called "Praying for Sam".
I don't really feel that I can keep talking about more things that are going on in my life after typing something like this. NOTHING compares in significance to our loved ones' in pain or suffering... most definitely when we are talking about a kid. So... with that, I'll be back to blogging land tomorrow. Hug your kiddos. Hug your family! Be grateful. I know I am!
