The “Man Cave” is in full swing. I swear his room even takes on the odor of a college dorm the minute his Mom leaves. Brady and I walked as far as we could; to the courtyard, the PSE&G fish tank, the fountain outside and of course around the unit several times. Brady had without a doubt his best day since he arrived. His vitals are all in good shape and his morphine levels have been cut in half.
Sherrie told me she couldn’t get enough food in him, he literally ate for at least 2 hours. His personality is back and he continues to develop at a very fast pace. He has taught himself more ‘signs’ including bear, and help. Today, he also had that wonderful Brady smile for everyone that came near. He has such personality!
Sherrie is home and hopefully getting some much deserved rest. We already miss her and can’t until she returns tomorrow evening. Sherrie and I are going out to dinner thanks the Grandma – (Jan you’re just an awesome person).
So, today was a “good” day for Brady and hopefully this continues right through Wednesday. I know your prayers, hugs and thoughts have given him strength beyond belief, so please continue them. Thank you and good night…
“8 Years Later—Still No Cure for Pediatric Cancer” is a series of posts revisiting the journal kept by Sherrie and Michael Wells during the cancer diagnosis and treatment of their son, Brady Michael. Hopefully these entires will provide an understanding of the journey families face when dealing with these horrific diseases and of the important work the Hugs for Brady Foundation does.
