I don't really have the adequate words for this post right now, but since I have posted a few times about my friend's son Christopher and his battle with cancer I thought I should update and let everyone know that Christopher passed away yesterday. He had come home earlier this week after MRIs showed that his cancer continued to progress, that the original mass was larger and there was another mass in his brain and more along his spine. Christopher was tired, the medicine was making him sick and his parents decided to bring him home and try to keep him pain-free and comfortable for the remainder of his life.
Rest in peace Christopher. Your life touched so many people. Your family is so strong. I am short on words, but so glad you are no longer in pain.
I'm not a religious person. The fact that a three year-old can die of cancer pains me. It solidifies my belief that there must not be any greater power out there. (I'm not trying to be insensitive, but this is my blog so I feel okay posting about how I feel).
Hug your children tighter. Show them you love them every day. Let the little stuff go. The only guarantee you have is the present.
