Child Cancer

Does this baby look like he has cancer?

Second day at Linda's place. There's been visits to the hospital with baby Jamie every day and will continue like that until Tuesday when the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is in Göteborg. It will be a few very long days of anxious waiting for Linda and everyone else involved. I wish there was more I could do to lighten the burden for her, to carry some of her pain.

I'm not very good at comforting, especially when there isn't much I can say or do to comfort. Her child has cancer and is under treatment. The doctors have high hopes for him to be fully recovered, but of course darling Linda is going through hell until the good news reach her. I wish I could speed up time for her and Jamie. At least he's young enough to not have any memory of all the horrible treatments, but the rest will have to deal with the trauma they're going through right now.

If I was a telepath I would transfer hope and happy thoughts into her head, make her understand that everything will be ok. He will get fully recovered, and have a long long life full off happiness, love and wonderful experiences. I know if from the deepest parts of my heart and soul.

Linda, my dearest, beautiful, darling sister; I love you from the bottom of my heart, and I will always be there for you, whenever and however. I know I'm not always the great support that you need, but I assure you that I'm doing my very very best. Again, I love you!
