I love woody
There’s nothing like muddy boots on a rainy day
Ronan. I don’t know what happy feels like anymore. But being back here, is the closest thing to happy I’ve felt since losing you. It’s no secret. I’m a Washington girl at heart. I love everything about the Pacific Northwest. I think it’s one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

I’m not scared yet. Is that weird? Because at this point I should be scared shitless. And I don’t need to point out the obvious for you all to know what it is I should be scared about. Maybe it’s because I’m too numb, still in too much shock, or in deep denial.

Pure and simple happiness
I’m not sure what exactly has been going on lately. Do I dare say it as I feel like I’m jinxing myself? I’ve been feeling really happy. Like, really, really, really, happy. Not a lot of tears, not a lot of sadness, just a feeling of complete and utter happiness.

The worst of times are the best of times
Last night my very sweet friend, Ed, hooked our family up with 5 tickets to the New York Knicks game and floor passes. It was our intention to take Ronan, but with him inpatient at Sloan, there was no chance of that happening. Mimi and Papa offered to come and sit with Ronan so Liam,…angels, arizona, AZ, basketball, best friends, best husband ever, boys, Brian Kushner, Broadway show, Chemotherapy, doctors, Donate Blood!, Donate Platelets!, Dr. Modak, dreams, Family, friendship, Go Knicks!, happiness, home sweet home, hospitals, I love woody, Jet Blue, life, love, Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center, miracles, Natural killer cell, NBA, Neuroblastoma, new york city, New York Knicks, Phoenix, promises, reality, Rockstar Ronan, sloan kettering, Star Wars, The Ronan Thompson Foundation, tricia tinney, twins, woody thompson
Magic Medicine…. Day 1, Round 6
I feel like I don’t have a lot to say tonight. Ronan hasn’t gotten out of bed, except to use the bathroom, since we got here on Sunday. He says his legs are hurting and does not want to walk around, go to the playroom, or anything. I tried all day to get him out…anger, arizona, AZ, best friends, boys, brothers, Childhood Disease, honesty, I love woody, jake gyllenhaal, magic medicine, maya and woody thompson, maya thompson, Neuroblastoma, new york city, phoenix suns, Rockstar Ronan, Ronald McDonald House, sadness, sloan kettering, tears, true love, US Weekly
Have you ever looked fear in the face and said I just don’t care?
Ro is still in the hospital due to a low ANC count. His numbers jumped up today, which tells us he is on the up and up, but they still need to get up higher before we can come home. He is in a lot of pain due to developing Mucositis which is a side…
Ronan and I went off to the clinic this morning to do his usual Monday checks of his blood and platelet levels. Poor little guy is having bad tummy aches from the chemo last week. A lot of diarrhea and him saying his tummy hurts.
