Aaron will be in my prayers and thoughts, too, until he's well again and back home with you! God bless you for being persistant with the doctors, too. May He give all of you the strength you need now, and the understanding that you will need to make the decisions necessary to help your son.

I will pray for your son and that the Lord keep him safe. I can't imagine what you must be going through, but know that I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
God bless you and stay strong for Aaron!

I am humbled beyond words at the kindness and compassion from my friends and acquaintances here. Best group on the internet....bar none!

Yesterday, Aaron underwent surgery to remove a sample from the tumor for biopsy. Because it is so large, they cannot remove it in an operation, as it involves too many arteries and such. The initial "freeze" test was inconclusive, but due to the cells being nondifferentiated, protocol is to examine the bone marrow as well. So samples were also taken from the pelvis. Also, the doctors installed a port in Aaron's chest which will be used to administer chemotherapy. The official diagnosis should be in next week, and so shall begin the chemo to reduce the size of the mass so it can be surgically removed. All we know today, however, is that yes, Aaron has cancer....yes it is very bad (stage 4, metastatic, and has begun to invade the lungs in spots), and yes, aggressive chemo will be required.

Aaron is home now, resting on the couch. He is weak from the surgery, but resilient as children are, I expect him to be up and about in a day or two. Hopefully, he will get to enjoy some time being a kid before his hellish experience with chemo begins.

I so wonder what he must be feeling. Only nine, hearing words like "stage 4, malignant, chance of a cure, etc." I want so desperately to reach in and pull that terrible thing out of my angel...or to take his place so he can be healthy. I would do that without a second thought. The helplessness I'm feeling is overwhelming. He is in pain, and I cannot do a thing to stop it. Big ol' daddy, larger than life and twice as strong, and yet I cannot get him out of this. I feel so lost.

My wife and I have run the gamut of emotions in the last 2-1/2 days. I scarcely shed a tear from Sunday night to Tuesday night, but then in front of my mother and sister, fell apart in a way I could only describe as ugly. So from this I have learned that emotions can only be bottled for so long. That was, however, only one of many, many cries I know I will have over the upcoming months. For those tears to not be in vein, I ask that you all keep praying and thinking positive thoughts for my little man. I can ask no more than that, because I feel prayer is the most powerful tool at our disposal. Those who do.....when you pray, I ask you pray not only for Aaron, but for me and my wife and other children, as well as the team of doctors and specialists who are caring for him. It would mean so much to me.

Thanks again everyone, and I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

My heart aches for you, my friend. We had prayer tonight at church for Aaron and will continue to do so. May you and your family find the comfort that only our dear Lord can bring. I know this Thanksgiving will have special meaning to you and your family. I know it does for me, also, because of Aaron's situation.

Praying.

Mark

My heart cries for you and with you. This feeling of helplessness must be a horrible thing to bear besides the caleidoscope of all other emotions. Been there.
Aaron will be a brave and strong fighter, and he and all who belong to him and all who care for him will be in my thoughts and prayers - always.
I wished I could do more. Please keep us posted.

Everyone. I am using CR's journal feature to help me chronicle Aaron's progress, and to make it easier for those interested/concerned to follow along. I haven't done this before, so I hope I did it correctly. If I haven't, would someone please let me know? I will be updating it as progress or other changes develop. I might even update just to share how I'm feeling.

Thank you again for all your loving prayers and comments. I doubt I could ever truly express how much it means to me.

As far apart as you and I might be, that aside, of course he is in my thoughts and prayers! We may not see eye to eye, but we're STILL family! Take heart my friend!

Thank you! I think our differences are really only ideological, and probably there are many, many things we agree on. But I don't think that means we lose our humanity, does it? I know there are those who truly hate people that differ from them in their views, but I would hope that they could drop such pettiness during such a time, and embrace our humanness as you have done. I don't agree with you on several levels, but dog, that doesn't mean I wish you any harm at all. In fact, I can think you're wacky and far out, but still love you as a fellow human. God forgive those who can't.

Good afternoon,
This is actually the time I have been on this site, and alreay the love and humanity is overwhelming. I was sitting here watching my daughter play outside and started to read. I am so very sorry for what you are going through. I could not imagine. There is nothing more painful than not being able to help your child. However at times like this is when you are stronger than you ever thought possible. I will also pray for all of your family. And even though I am new to this site and have yet to have the priveldge to meet you, just both being parents you have my respect and my prayers. Have faith and god bless you all.

Hello, Rob --

I also want to say that, although we have not seen eye to eye all the time (to put it mildly), this goes way beyond anything we could ever disagree about. I'm very heavy in my heart to hear this news about your boy. Please accept my profoundest wishes and hopes for his recovery, and for the strength all of you are going to need as Aaron proceeds with his treatment.

Aaron (especially), you, and your whole family have been in my thoughts and prayers every day, and will continue to be. I can't begin to express all that I feel for all of you, but you have my heartfelt hope that God will protect Aaron and bring him back to Health.
