Winston and Ronan share a precious little friendship for 3 year olds. They did as 2 year olds too. These little guys are undoubtedly the reason I met Maya, one of the most caring, loving, special women I have EVER met in my life to this day. It has been a heart warming experience watching my son, Winston, and Ronan develop this little bond that they have. I remember hearing them in the back of my car one morning having their first “real” conversation. I watched them play side by side, and than develop into playing with each other.. .. Ronan has been, still is and will always be such a special part of our life. It is hard not having his smile around here as much as we are accustomed to, but I know it will be back soon. This little guy is strong.
Winston went to visit him today. Ronan was a super-star. The only way one could tell he was “sick” was by the fact that we were visiting him in a hospital. This child had such a smile on his face, his normal “Ronan look” in his eye. Maya was a beam of sunshine (even with 6 hours -out of 72 – of sleep). Kay and Charlie – shining stars, looked fresh as daisies. What beautiful, amazing hearts. The beauty of kids is they understand, and they don’t. And so, they just fight and go. Fight and go. First thing Ronan did was show W his “owie” (spelling) on his head, and his Iron Man port on his chest. He is such a champion. He is so brave. The kids played with toys, W ate a few of Ro-Ro’s chicken nuggets, they cuddled and watched a little bit of a movie . .and than it was time for Ronan to nap, and W wanted to play “doctor” and start pushing buttons on the IV’s (which he never got to) and turing the lights on and off – which definitely meant it was time for us to go.
It was a good, no, GREAT visit. Warmed my heart to see that little guy so happy,strong and smiling so big. Warmed my heart to see my son see his favorite friend. W is going to miss R in swimming and in school. Health permitting (meaning as long as W is cold, sick free) and doctor permitting, he will be there for his friend AS MUCH AS HE POSSIBLY CAN to brighten up his day.
We had some rain here today in Phoenix. Everyone posted rainbows all over their Facebook pages. I dedicate them all to Ronan.
