Sad today

I'm sad today.

Sad that my baby boy won't be coming home for at least 2 months due to his treatments.

Sad that he won't see the daffodils come up.

Sad that he won't get to play with his sisters for a long, long time.

Sad that he won't sleep be sleeping in his own bed.

Sad that he is going to be feeling very sick by next week.

How long is two months to a 3 year old? Will it seem like home was 2 days ago, or will he forget what it's like? Will he lose hope that he'll ever leave the hospital? Will he stop trusting me?

What a lot to ask such a young boy to go through.

I'm so sad today.

Gosh, I just wish I had some words to comfort you. I know he will love and trust you! A very difficult thing for you and your family to be going thru.

I'm sad with you and wish that there was something I could do for you and Henry to make it better.

Gee, this is awful for you and for him. He won't stop trusting you, don't fear that. You and your family will continue to be in my prayers.

His home is with "you."

I will be praying you through, standing in the gap for you... and pray for perfect healing for your little man.

I am so sorry- sometimes no words can help. Know that you have a lot of people praying for your family.

Does your hospital allow "sleepovers"? Sometimes when my daughter was feeling her worst (and even in tricky treatment times) we were able to have my other daughter have a "sleepover" with her, and it helped.

He's not going to stop trusting you, or knowing where his home is...3 year olds seem to have an infinitely malleable sense of time, so it will seem different to him.

Wish I could give you a hug, or truly share your sadness (and thereby lessen it). How are your girls doing?

I too wish I could give you a hug.
