Beating Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma
Ben turned 23 today. It has been a source for many moments of gratitude all day- from breakfast to dinner, when I most often have a moment to contemplate the gift of Life. I didn't think we'd get here from last Thanksgiving when the diagnosis was sinking in.
There is so much to celebrate today. Ben is alive! His mother and father are still feeling sane. My sons have their best friend. There is still a long road to full health- but Ben is beating the odds and that is nothing to sneeze at.
We are all just grains of sand in the giant picture. Some more colorful than others, but all of equal weight. I am so grateful that Ben can still be with us. His colors are bright and sunny.
