We're learning more and more as we go. Some doctors know more about different things. The nurses mean well, but they do not always know what the doctors know. Boaz could go home in a few days, if all goes well. The chances of everything going well are close to zero. I could insist, and they would let me take him. I could do the treatments in Pensacola, I could go home in between. But, when he gets a fever, and he will, or his blood counts go down, and they are, then I want to be where Silas can get the care he needs. This is THE Children's Cancer Hospital. They are equipped to do things here that they can't do elsewhere. I miss my boys at home, but I realize that's what the Lord has for us right now. We will take it as it comes. This is a physical battle. It is also a spiritual battle. Satan does not want us to serve God. He does not want us to be a bright light shining in dark world. But, that is our reasonable service. I love my LORD more each day. He is still merciful and gracious.
Boaz loved for us to color with him. And we would every time, just to see his face light up. When we colored he loved to scribble on it, just to tease us. Then he would look at us with that michievous look and smile his gorgeous smile.
Sometimes children say the funniest things. Other times it's soooo typical that you aren't sure weather to laugh, or cry!!!
Stonewall: "I'm gonna go to Walmart and buy an airhorn, then I'm gonna use it to wake up Sister at 6:30!" Then he laughs hysterically!!!
Timothy (7): When I grow up my house is gonna be shaped like an alligator. You'll have to go in the mouth to get in, then slide down and people will scream!"
