Last night, I took Ambien sleeping pill to get some rest and it worked; I slept for about 8 hours. I just don’t know what to write. I miss my son so much. Brady was a wonderfully amazing baby and I will miss him forever. I don’t know how long I am going to continue this journal? I guess, I will try to keep it updated for at least the next couple of weeks.
Sherrie is coping as any mother would, which means she is still in shock and I worry about her health. She was such a fantastic mom. Sherrie should have had 10 children; she is just so patient, caring, kind, compassionate, nurturing, and loving. She is the main reason Brady was as wonderful as he was. Sherrie you deserve to be Mother of the Year!
This will be the 280th journal entry. Wow, I wish the ending were different. But I do pledge to you, I will do everything possible to keep the spirit, meaning and purpose of Brady’s life a live! The Hugs for Brady Foundation will (someday) have NFL players wearing orange ribbons of their helmets acknowledging pediatric cancer. We will continue to help kids with cancer, one hug at a time!
As always, please pray for Brady, hug someone in his honor and think good thoughts.
“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.
