Because our oncologist appointment got cancelled due to snow, we don’t go until Tuesday. One week post diagnosis of a cancer who’s prognosis is given in days. Eternity. So as worry and overwhelming thoughts take over and lack of sleep combined with so many answerless questions…well just insert lots of crying here.
Then yesterday I watched the boys hunker down for a nap together. And I although I could have been sad that those moments are going to be few, I was actually filled with happiness and joy. Because them snuggling up, we did that. We work at being a loving and happy family and not only was this moment I watched perfection, I had my phone with me, I pushed record and no one woke up. It was lovely.
Then all of sudden, Melvin lifts his arm up over Jake, I swoooooooooon!! PS: if you turn your volume up, Jake’s snoring should make you laugh (or at least smile!).
This is so sweet! Sending our love to Melvin. <3
AWWW! This is so precious! You will be able to cherish this forever. Hugs to you and you boys.
Not a nanosecond goes by that you and the boys aren’t in my thoughts and in my heart.
Those are the BEST moments! More love and hugs coming from us than you can imagine!
My heart just exploded. Love these two — and YOU! Your grace and outlook on this crap situation never cease to amaze me!
You have an amazing perspective about a very difficult time. Glad you get to enjoy every minute of it that you can.
IT’s moments like these that make life worth living. Much love to you all.
Oh, all the feels over here! Rufus and I are working overtime to send as many good vibes as we can muster up – thinking of you all!
That’s true love, pure and simple. I’m so glad you captured this moment.
Isn’t it wonderful that you are working from home now and you’re there to catch moments like these? Things happen for a reason, and I am so happy that you are there for Melvin . . . and, of course, Jake.
This warms the heart! Thanks for taking the time to share it. We are thinking about and sending good thoughts to you and Melvin and Jake. Rebecca & Sir Humphs
What a lovely moment… sending lots of love to you and the boys!
Thinking about you lots! Hugs to the kids!
