MY BOY..

This is my son..my heartbeat...I've been given permission to tell everyone what is going on..He was diagnosed with cancer..not going to say where or how bad..that's his story..but he has taken 2 of the 3 rounds of chemotherapy ..and 16 of 34 roundsof radiation..he's like his mom..he';s tough and a fighter and will beat this no doubt..but you all throwing up some prayers for him would be greatly appreciated..He hasn't lost his sense of humor..when he told me that he had cancer he did it with a phone call and I was very brave and was calm and cool and very reasuring to him..knowing I didn't need to over react which is your basic instinct.so when I hung up(or so I thought)I broke down..had my phone held to my chest and was crying 'dont take my baby, don't take my baby/..and after begging the goddess and assorted minor Gods I realized I hadnt hung up the phone..so I hung it up real fast and just hoped he hadn't heard..the phone rang and I got to listen to Thom make fun of me..dont take my baby..boo hoo..and I heard you pray to God..I said no it was to the Goddess he said no I heard you and then he mimiced me all over again..little shit.that's how we are..we fight and laugh and then fight some more.

I am so sorry. I think cancer in a child is every mother's worst nightmare, no matter how curable the cancer might be or how old the child is. They are our babies forever.

Oh Jackie!
If he is ANYTHING like you, he won't go down without the biggest fight and that kind of spirit is the kind that beats it, I think. I hope his odds are good for the type he has and that he stays strong in body and spirit through his fight. It CAN be beaten!!
How much do I love that he called you back and teased you? Little rat bastard! Hahahah!

Sending prayers, white light and healing thoughts--so sorry to hear this. But it sounds like cancer picked the wrong guy to screw with. Give it hell! and then some.

Oh,Jackiesue, my Mother heart aches with yours. You know, when they're young and something happens, a kiss, a hug and a bandaid would fix just about everything. What a feeling of helplessness we have in the face of something as daunting as cancer.
Just remember, your job has not changed. You're his mom. Love him, support him, laugh with him and cry with him.And hug him...a lot. Just that special touch we share with our children is a healing touch.
It sounds like the apple didn't fall far from the tree when it comes to feistiness ; ) So keep tussling with him too. That orneriness will serve him well. When he beats this he will be looking at life through wonderful new eyes. I' so glad he's almost done with his treatments. That's a horror in itself and takes strength and faith to get through.
Thank you for sharing this with us. We are all here for you and there is so much positive energy aimed your way you all should be buzzin'. Keep us posted on his progress. Love you,YDG...this is where I wish I had a magic wand.
