What a week it has turned out to be
I don't really like to complain or talk about things outside of relevance to Mikayla, but today is an exception. With a show of hands how many of you out there that are reading this have ever had a child put to sleep? Great, now how many of you have had all your children put to sleep in the same week? That's a bit harder to swallow. This week came out of nowhere to catch us by surprise. Starting with Mikayla, she was put to sleep last Friday to examine her bone marrow to see if the Leukemia was still in remission. Thankfully the results were in our favor and came out clear. Next is Damien. He had an orthopedic exam of his broken wrist and they said that this Friday most likely they would have to put him to sleep to insert a rod into his wrist to help correct the damage. Next out of nowhere was Darian. She developed some kind of staph type infection on the back of her leg and had to be put to sleep today to have it surgically removed. Last but not least is my big boy Malachi. Poor guy has to be put to sleep to donate bone marrow to his sister Mikayla. Insurance has got to love us and God I think is pissed at us. Really it's incredibly wierd that as a snow ball starts rolling down hill it begins to get bigger and bigger until it breaks apart. I am hoping my families snowball has made it completly down the hill. Now enough whinning. Mikayla gets admitted to the hospital tomorrow. Her radiation treatment will start right away. Malachi has to give more blood beyond what they have already taken because they screwed up some tests. Idiots. Tomorrow through Friday is frankly gonna suck. Since being diagnosed I have dreaded this day. Add to that the fact that the other two children are now patients makes one wonder what in the world they done to make life go downhill so rapidly. Guess we still have our friends, family, and each other and things could be way worse. Thank you all for your support.
