The amazing thing is that even though my youngest rascal goes through so many tough and hard things at the moment, we still have lots of fun every day.
Mainly this is thanks to him. He laughs and he smiles, like always.
It´s not possible not to laugh when he does, he´s always had the most contagious laughter.
So the days are passing by quite quickly. We are in school as much as he wants to, his friends comes by and we enjoy hugging and talking every day. All is – for now – well.
He started his radiation and have so far done two sessions; it will be a total of 30 and after that it´s chemotherapy. I try to focus on the positive; the tumour was removed completely, it didn´t spread to any other parts of his body, we live in a city with a great hospital and skilled doctors. In terms of cancer, that is the best news – but there´s no guarantees.
It goes without saying that I´m scared – more scared than I´ve ever been.
However; he is here, he is happy, we have not lost him – and so the life has to go on like it always has. It makes us all feel better and our aim is for him to come out of this with experiences he shouldn´t have, but still alive.
So I sit here in our sofa with my lazy cat, listening to my little rascal and his friends on the upper floor – and it feels like it should. Like everyday life and days passing by.
And for that I´m grateful.
