As I walk the halls on the BMT floor this time, I feel an even greater sadness because so many of the rooms there occupy our friends. Friends who's children are all fighting right now. Children who I am growing to love more and more each day. I came into this with only Kayla on my mind. She was my one and only concern. Now, I am so attached to these families and kids! It's amazing how strongly I weep with them and for them when they are having their own struggles. Even if they are not mine, I get it. I can't help but feel anxious for them all. Watching as the doctors approach friends rooms knowing that they are holding important life altering information sends my stomach whirling around and my breathing changes. We all wait anxiously to either meet in the halls or read their precious updates online. We are all in it together. So as our moments pass by slowly right now, we cherish the fact that we are all still here. Still fighting. Still finding time for smiles and even laughter. Thank you to all of you who have been so strong in your love for us and for all those who fight.
