From a caringbridge post today.
Caden is running and playing with Jesus. God took him home tonight and he finally beat cancer for good. Thank you for your prayers.
Like Money always says, “It ain’t over until it’s over. And that is NOT the outcome that we’re hoping for.”
Even if children survive leukemia they can experience side effects of the treatments. Problems learning. Problems growing. Problems with their teeth or pain at injection sites. Permanent hair loss. You name it. So, even though they are considered cured. They still are dealing with cancer. Let’s hope that Isa has an easier go of it than this but we certainly don’t want it to be ‘over’.
Thank you for your continued support, emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally because the end is not pretty. Each of these children has too much life in them to die easily. It is a fight folks. These families write about their children and you can feel their pain through the internet, as they watch their children writhe. So many families hope for a last smile or a last laugh, but it seems like they often do not get it. I wish there was a better way to learn whatever lessons it is that God wants us to learn. Like a correspondence course or something online. This is too much to deal with first hand.
Remind me to breathe.
