I want to thank everyone of you for your support! Each time I pick up my phone I see Jeremiah's smiling face showing me that someone has shared this post. The number of calls, emails, and text messages that we have received have been overwhelming and saying thank you just doesn't seem to be enough.
I spend hours a day searching for funding! It is a vicious circle of endless apologies. Technically he has insurance so he does not qualify, but the insurance is not covering the chemo, so there isn't any coverage. With your help and my persistence we have made progress. Finally, after showing that we were raising money, and a huge promise (that I hope I can keep) they have finally agreed to let Jeremiah start his Chemo treatments. We will be responsible for cost of the medicine he needs, but we are moving forward! Thank You! We could not have gotten this far without all of you! I pray that the Chemo does it's job, and that he tolerates it well.
I can't pretend to put myself in his shoes and tell you what he is going through. When I call and ask "How are you?" like a good son, he tells me he is fine, so I won't worry. But I can hear in his voice that maybe he isn't quite as good as he wants me to believe. I wish that there were fewer miles between us, and I could drop by and visit on my way home from work. But 1200 miles is a little more than the long way home.
From the moment he called me with the news my heart has been flooded with memories, how I see him, is a little blonde headed boy, with an endless smile and an enormous amount of energy. The little boy who brought me bouquets of dandelions. Life was so simple when I had the power to "fix" anything, at least in his eyes.
I know we have just begun this journey and the road ahead of us will not be an easy one, I appreciate your prayers, concern and encouragement.
