My name is Amanda and in November 2009 my son was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. He has 18 months of treatment left and there are days when I feel like I am about to pull my hair out.
When he was diagnosed I was 20 weeks pregnant with our daughter who is now 16 months. About 2 weeks ago we found out we were pregnant again!!! Total surprise. While my husband was extatic I couldn't help but cry. I thought how am I gonna do this with a baby again. I wanted to wait until he was finished with treatment.
This has become a long road and some days it seems like it is never ending. I really feel like I just want to throw myself down in the middle of the floor and have a royal temper tantrum.
Brac is the bravest kid that I know.
He never complains, always smiles and says please and thank you. Could I ask for a more wonderful kid
I have long needed a board like this. A place where people really understand. So glad that you are here. Cause I know that you can say you understand and really mean it.

Hi sweetie. I was just browsing through (for no reason in particular) and wanted to send you hugs your way. You are a very strong mama to be going through something as difficult as having a sick child and the long road ahead. I do not have a child with cancer but I did have a baby with a bowel obstruction and he almost lost his life. We lived in the hospital for many months and never knew if he would survive, let alone eat food again. It was so difficult - I understand those days of just wanting to have a giant temper tantrum because it was so much. The time will pass and I pray for a full recovery for your brave little man. Hang in there sweets. <3
