This child can rest comfortably tonight.
He has been treated for Kawasaki Disease.
We might never had heard about it
except for a blogger stepping forward
with information here.
Yesterday he had an infusion to
treat the disease.
This morning he smiled and said
"NANA" when I walked in the room.
He does NOT need a blood transfusion.
He felt well enough to take a ride
in the red wagon at his disposal.
Daddy lifted him up to look at the Christmas tree.
And after a few bites to eat he was off to dreamland.
See Spongebob smiling?
He is smiling because CJK is healing.
He has been treated for Kawasaki Disease
and will have to have a few follow up checkups
to monitor his heart.
Our little boyo should be coming home soon.
Until then, you know that I will be sitting up in the
hospital waiting for one more smile.
Even a half smile like this one will do.
I want to give a
HUGE THANK YOU
to Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia.
Her son, Grayson, had Kawasaki Disease
and she posted about it-
possibly saving my grandson's life-
or at least his heart from damage.
She sent me her phone number
so that my daughter-in-law
could call her personally.
Where else in the world would you find
people like that?
I have thought at times that maybe I should
quit blogging-actually talked about it
with my daughter but decided to
keep blogging until the end of the year anyway.
I think God has me here for a reason
and maybe, just maybe, it is to
help someone else like we were helped.
To everyone-thank you, thank you, thank you,
for your prayers and your thoughts and your tears.
You are the best of the best and I am blessed
to be one of you.
My heart is overflowing and now, so are my eyes.
I will post again tomorrow to give you an update.
