When we arrived at Childrens we met 2 really great families. One had already been here for a month prior to our arrival, one arrived one week after we did. The one that arrived the week after us, Tucker and I had briefly met at cath lab on the 22nd of June when Tucker was in lab and their son, CJ, was awaiting his turn. As I sit in my room, in the dark and look up at Tuckers monitors, CJ's parents are making a decision that no parent should ever have to make. CJ got his wings.... How hard it is to get to know these families, to love them as if they were your own....and to see and feel the hurt they feel.
Again I am reminded how very fragile life is.....
Please keep this family in your prayers. This was their only child, a boy that brought them life, love and joy each and every day he was here.
