youngest son

‘I have only 38 more months left of school.’ ‘What?’ I went for my coffee. ‘It’s 6:30 a.m. I can’t deal with this right now.’: Mom wishes she had known each time would’ve been ‘the last time’ with her kids

“This morning I was running around like a chicken without her head. ‘Peter is it really only 38 more months?’ A sadness came over me, but my mom brain was busy ticking off my daily to do list, thinking his bus really does pick him up ridiculously early for a school day that doesn’t start till 7:55.”

‘Congrats, it’s a boy!’ Not even 48 hours later, the doctor pulled up a chair. ‘You have a large mass in your chest that is likely cancer.’: Woman shocked with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis days after giving birth, ‘I had too much to fight for’

“I sat in a hospital bed nursing my newborn son when I received the most unexpected, gut-punching news. ‘You have to stop breastfeeding. Soon, you will become toxic to your son.’ I couldn’t formulate any words. I was stunned to silence. Here we were, newlyweds for just 4 months with 4 children together, and now a very sudden chance I may not be around to help raise our kids to adulthood. I had too much to fight for.”
