Night in the Life

So, I haven’t known what to say to update our friends and family. Nothing has changed that much with Thomas, just everything, a little bit.

On the same as ever front, he’s still a charmer. Some friends of ours came over to babysit the other night after Thomas went to bed. “We really don’t expect him to get up,” I assured them.

About 30 minutes later, I got a text: “He appears to be fine, but he is AWAKE and playing basketball.” Our friends said that once Thomas overcame his surprise that strangers had replaced his parents, he took them by the hand and led them to the basketball net. I’m sure he was thinking, “New people! Yay! I knew they started the parties after I went to bed.”

Scott and I laughed when we got the message. We were out playing pool, one of the few dates that seems to be a sure thing during cancer. I mean, think about it – what are you going to talk about over dinner?

One of the things we’re not talking about on our night out are changes in Thomas’s condition.

Last week, he has had a seizure for sure – we’d thought we’d seen them in the past, but there was no doubting this one. It was sudden and passed in a couple seconds, and he didn’t seem affected by it after it passed. Still, even now, I don’t know what to say about that.

Really. got nothin.

I love Roxana's comment! Obviously he loves basketball - he's probably playing in his dreams too. What a beautiful baby boy you have. Remember many people are praying for you and your little family. May Jesus wrap his arms around you all, and may you feel His love and strength.

AHAHAHAHHA. I wish everyone could have seen him. He gaves us his greatest hits. Basketball, Blues Clues dance, cars, tickling...

We had SO much fun that I kind of hope he wakes up next time too.
