Yes, I borrowed that line from David. Psalm 42. He really has the best lines. It felt so appropriate for this post.
I couldn’t help noticing a sparse-looking room a few doors down. A boy named Correll and his mom seem to be here alone. Our room is bursting with snacks, treats, gifts, decorations, coloring books. His room looks rather empty in comparison.
I put together a bag of unopened toys, snacks, crayons and a coloring book and delivered it just a few minutes ago. I hope you don’t mind my “re-gifting” a few things. But when I tell you how their faces just LIT UP, I thought you would be okay with it.
And I may go back and take a few more goodies. I can’t help myself. I feel called to share the generous blessing bestowed on us.
Justin is going back and forth between nausea and vomiting to eating everything and asking for more. He had a whole bagel late this morning then asked for a cheeseburger and a taco! We are holding off on the latter until we see how the bagel sits.
There is a very good chance he will be discharged tomorrow and continue chemo as an outpatient. More details to come…
Please add my new friend, Correll, to your prayers as well as Claire and our Justin. Grace be with you, my friends.
