While we were here at the hospital waiting for my chemo, me and my mom wrote our first poem together. We will post it soon. I hope you will like it! My mom posted a poem of mine called "When You Didn't Know". It was about me smiling so today when my me and my mom were driving to the hospital I said, "Mommy, today when I get my shot I am going to try to smile through the whole entire thing." I wouldn't exactly call it a smile, but I did grit my teeth the whole time. But my mom said it counts as a smile as long as I wasn't screaming. The shot is the hardest part of the chemo right now. It stings and burns really bad when I get it. But I have had a really great nurse so far who helps me get through it. Her child also had cancer and went through chemotherapy so I believe God gave her to me to help me through this. I wish I could have her every time I come. Actually, I know God gave her to me because she said she prayed for me the other day. Just like He gave me Lotsy to help me get through this. That is me with Lotsy in the picture. She told me a joke when I was getting my needle put in my port. Here it is.."Why did the banana go to the doctor?".......because he was not peeling well! :)
I have been reading the comments and I want to thank you because they really cheer me up and help me feel like I am not alone even though I can not see all my friends right now. So far, the medicine has been making me feel very tired and hungry. But I try not to focus on how I feel and I think about ways to cheer up other people like writing letters and emails. I see all the other kids who are sick here and I think about what they are going through. I try to talk to them since I am going through it too. Kids who have gone through this encourage me so I want to encourage kids going through this too.
My mom is wonderful. I love her. I have been writing letters to other people but not her because she has done so much for me that I can't put it in words. I love her so much! The love she shows for me is so big. I love you mommy.
My dad is my hero! He is a great leader. I love him. He has always been there for me. I love him. The love he shows me is so big . I love you daddy.
My Lord Jesus is my strength. I love Him. He has never left my side. I love Him. The love He shows me is so big. I love you Jesus.
