I can not lie........Yesterday was tough.... A fall early morning, a knot on his head, another nap and tears. Fear hovers over the house, oxygen was brought for precautionary measures. It may never be needed but... it is here. And I know the tanks were unbearable to look at. Mason's breathing is not a struggle however; deep, deep breaths can be heard throughout the day. A headache began much earlier bringing tears and frustrations and, "Mom you are not listening" The moans and groans haunt mom; I know I can not make them vanish. I only pray for more smiles to consume his day. A mom is suppose to provide comfort. My heart is so heavy, it could explode. Already this morning the headache has been replaced by tummy pains as Mason wobbled to the bathroom. Steroids can be increased if necessary, but the side effects will also increase.
The mail lets us know we are not alone. As a card from Goshen, Indiana reads,"Valentine's Day proves one thing...a little Love can go a long way!" Thank you!! We are not alone...
