Emergency Room

We’ve made a trip to the emergency room today as ‘The Little One’ experienced a bad spell of laborious breathing through the night and early this morning.

He has been fearful of this trip, but he insisted on coming to the emergency room this morning. The recent struggles with the esophagus and tumor has produced quite a bit of discomfort for him this week. Now a week into his steroid medication without any outward signs of relief; we are where we are supposed to be today.

As I (we) sit here waiting and worrying, our best source of comfort comes from our faith, our family, and our friends. For me, I find relief in writing.

We don’t know what is ahead of us today, but in essence, do any of us? Sure our schedules are filled with appointments, telephone calls and meetings. But all those things can wait because when you get right down to it, there is nothing more important in life than being present to the one you love.

Today we are going to try to be as calm as an ocean breeze!

You see… we might have cancer, but cancer does not have us!

    Chris….my thoughts and prayers are with you and the “little one” today. The common denominator in all healing is love as we are birthed into so many new and different dimensions/terrains on healing journeys….we are friends, lovers, midwives, companions, caregivers, gatekeepers, sources of prayer and Light…breathe and remain in your beautiful heart, so filled with love and Light….many prayers and blessings your way, Regina Rosenthal
