Counting our blessings… twice!

Ro’s ANC counts came back and they are at 120 today. Yay! Great news for us! Dr. Wood said we should be able to go back home Friday. I slept at home last night and Wood stayed at the hospital. Woody’s banned me from the hospital for a couple of days due to me not feeling well. Mimi Kay is with Ronan now and I’m waiting to see my doctor…. Just wanting to confirm that I don’t have anything like strep throat, etc….. We can’t compromise Ronan in any way. I know I’m just run down. I’m going to rest at home today and tonight.

I saw Dr. Mengesha. He is such a kind man. He knew all about Ronan and just kept telling me how resilient kids are. He asked me if I wanted anything to help me sleep… I said no. Not going down that road. Woody would flip anyway. He just confirmed what I already knew…. A little bit of a cold and exhaustion. Mimi Kay and Karen have been taking turns with Ronan. Thank god for those two! Woody will sleep at the hospital tonight and I will stay home. It’s breaking my heart that I can’t see my baby. I just need to remember to take better care of myself…. Because if I don’t it’s Ronan who pays the price.

Trish and Marisa stopped by this morning. They brought a new big shoe basket for our front door(new rule, no shoes in house) and it was full of goodies. I really lucked out finding those two as my best friends. I’ve always known that you don’t get any better than them…..they are the sisters that I never had growing up… But now I do.

I am excited to spend some quality time with my twins today. I’m picking them up from a play date in just a bit. Liam asked me this morning if we could go and get him new school shoes tonight. I meant to take him right before all this started and it never happened. Poor kid! The twins seem o.k. I think this is hard for them to understand. Their entire world has changed in the blink of an eye. They are used to being with Ronan and I, all day everyday. I hate that we have to be apart as a family. It makes me sad that we have this beautiful house and their friends can’t come over to enjoy it. I love to be the mom who hosts the play dates, goes to their classroom, takes them to their sports, etc…. I love my house being full of kids, laughing, and playing. I just keep telling myself that this won’t be forever, and hopefully they really won’t remember any of this as they get older. And at least they have each other. It would be easy to think of all the negative things that come along with what we are going through. I’ve decided to count our blessings and count them twice!

  1. Good for you Maya. Your blessings are many for sure. Way to go Ronan raising those numbers! You are obviously a great mom so just remember to pump up your vitamins etc so you can be physically strong. God bless you and your beautiful family and friends!

  2. Hey there
    I’m signed up and ready to join the prayer team of support. I work in ministry and have seen miracle after miracle of healings that no human could explain. I am joining the prayer team for superstar Ronan to be another testimony.Ironically my mom is going for her MRI tommorrow after they found a tumor in her breast and it was malignant. We’re just contending for her healing like Ronans..God is bigger. My two year old will be praying with me tonight for you and your family.
    My fav. healing verse. Jesus said “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed you can tell that mountain to move into the sea and it will be done!”
    God bless you friend

  4. Its so good to hear Ronan’s #’s are up!! Im glad you have such great friends to help you get through this… its hard being away from any of your kids im sure but like you said it wont be forever!! Keeping Ronan, you and your entire family in my thoughts and prayers. ♥

  6. Rest up! You’ll be feeling better and sitting with Ronan kicking cancers butt in no time!
    Before you know it, you’ll be wishing you had a quiet house for just a few moments 😉

  7. Maya and family,
    I do not know you personally but another mom of the MOM’s club sent us your blog.
    I have a 6 year old daughter and also a 3 1/2 year old boy named Aidan and we pray every night before they go to bed. Rockstar Ronan will now be in our prayers.
    Remember that the good thoughts attract good things. Many people praying for Ronan will have POWER and will bring him healthy back home. Just hang in there, your family is in God’s hands.

    Count with our prayers
