We decided to switch his radiation to the morning and I think it is working better for him. That way he doesn't dread it all day, he gets home early enough to take his nap and is refreshed when friends get home from school. For a while he kind of avoided them. I think it was due to a few things... I think at first he felt weird. Also, after radiation he is always so tired and pretty cranky. He was getting home around 4:30 or 5:00 p.m. when every one was outside playing and I think it bothered him. This last week since we changed his time he wanted to play with his friends twice this week! I was thrilled! I also got him to go to an hour of school with me on Tues. That made me happy too. We have also arranged for a tudor to come to the house a few days a week to work on school work with him. I want things to be as normal and structured as possible for him. One thing that remains the same is the bickering between the children. That helps to make ME feel normal! Haha.
Well my husband got a new calling in church. One that I know will truly bless our family. I feel so strongly that we are constantly being watched over. I am so grateful for the strength I continue to receive from my Heavenly Father. Sometimes my mind starts to wander and worry about the future but I am able to quickly retrieve those undesirable thoughts and focus on the now. Dylan has been shown so much love by so many people, it has touched me to the core. I can't believe the lengths people have gone to in order to make him feel special. He told me that sometimes people treat him like he is the President! Lol. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has supported him. From the texts to the comments left on this blog, the treats, the random visits, the cards, the packages, the prizes, the letters... the list goes on and on! I feel the same as Heavenly Father does in Matthew 25, vs 40 when he says, "in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
Thank you again for all of the love that has been shown to all of us.
We are still pursuing additional treatment options. We will constantly be searching for anything that will help! You can't put a price on a life. Especially one of your own children. He has been so easy to love and take care of. He has taught me so much in such a short period of time. I am so grateful for every minute of every day I get to spend with my family. If there is anything I can pass on to others, it is to not take those minutes and days for granted. You think it will never be you but you never know. I never thought it would be us. But as crazy as it sounds I don't think I would change it. It has made me appreciate the simple things in life. :)
