It is just after noon and we are already home from Birmingham; I believe this is the shortest trip we have ever made down there. Noah had his port accessed this morning at Children's and then we headed to UAB radiation center to have his scan and mask made. He woke up from the anesthesia a little quicker than I could get to him, so he wasn't happy about that but otherwise he did great. His treatment will begin a lot quicker than we expected - this Wednesday he will resume his tumor starving therapy and then Thursday morning he will begin the radiation treatments every morning (M-F) at 7am. So Noah and I will be officially "moving in" to the Birmingham apartment on Tuesday evening. It's a nice place, built in the 40s, plenty of space for our necessities, neat and clean, and only a few minutes drive from the treatment center. God is really providing our needs during this time, and we thank all of you who have contributed in some way or another!
I've been trying to teach Noah about his wish - what it means, what he could possibly do or have, and how endless the possibilities are. At first it was hard to distinguish the wish from a "witch" (he loves watching the Wizard of Oz and couldn't get past his wish being "mean and green"). I think he is finally understanding the concept and is trying to decide what he would most like to do. He talks a lot about swimming with sharks, but somehow I don't see that one coming to fruition. :) I will post more after our meeting with the Make-A-Wish volunteer on Sunday. Thanks so much for still reading and praying!!! Have a great weekend!
