|Christian at 2 sporting the duck costume - QUACK!|
We spent the whole day today at the HOT clinic where Christian receive his 3rd blood transfusion. It is a very weird feeling to stand beside his bed and watch somebody else's blood drain into his body. Amazing to think that not too long ago this blood was pumping in somebody else's heart and now it is helping to keep my son alive. Without these blood transfusions he would not be able to continue with chemotherapy and without chemotherapy he would not be able to fight his cancer. So thank you to anybody who has taken the time to donate blood. You have saved my 'ducks' life.
The HOT clinic is slowly starting to feel comfortable and safe for us. Christian instantly runs for his favorite toys and we look for familiar faces of other families also fighting the good fight. We have met so many good families, all with an incredible story to tell. Please consider registering for the onematch program and if you have already registered please tell somebody else to go and register. We are over 1/10th of the way to 1000 registrants...I know we can do it!
Short and sweet today as I just want to let everybody know that we are pushing on and Christian is feeling much better now that he's had a transfusion. Imagine the terrible two's - on cocaine - this is how I would describe a small child in need of a blood transfusion - watch out!
Thank you to the ladies at the TD Bank who held a bake sale in Christian's honor today!
Today I am thankful for:
1. Tim Horton's coffee
2. Ryan's red hot teething cheeks
3. Sitting on the couch, warm and comfy with Chris, watching the Masters
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength"
