    buglover, I hope tomorrow's CT results show that Victor is headed in the right direction. He's a spunky young man whose spirit I admire.

He had a slight fever early this morning but as soon as I took him off his memory foam bed he cooled down within 10 minutes. Those things are comfy but they really make your body hot! Of course he is supposed to be drinking over 2 liters of liquid each day and as a lovely teenager, he fights it the whole day. He has lost nearly 20lbs since the beginning of December but he is still fighting with me so I think he must be ok! We get our CT scan tomorrow morning so we will know if any of the mets in his lungs have shrunk or if there are more. Depending on how these tests go we will begin treatment again at the end of the month.
    Hi buglover...I am a bit of a wallflower, so you really don't know me, but I read all of these forums regularly and feel like I know many of you. I follow this thread and my heart just goes out to so many and I do pray regularly for those who share their troubles.

    One of my sons is the same age as Victor...I just cannot imagine. I just wanted to tell you what an inspiration you both are. Your grace and strength as you deal with this is just amazing to me. You are always so kind and caring for others here who are struggling even as you go through your own battle. It touches my heart and as I said, inspires me. I just wanted to let you know. God bless you.

    I agree about my FoRT buddies-I wouldn't have been able to get through 2008 without you all! Losing a child was one of the toughest things, but it also let me know how strong I was. I still miss him everyday, but know that he is fine and at peace. I guess the pain is different now. I'm more able to remember the good times and the funny ones, as well as the arguments, too. I think I'm different now-more letting go of the small stuff and choosing my "battles" carefully. For everyone in ForT, peace and lots of hugs!
