Time has become such a different word for us lately – it’s been only two weeks since this is all began which isn’t alot of time, but it’s felt like an entirely different lifetime for us. Every day, hour, minute has been something we can’t quite fathom but yet time keeps moving forward.
When we learned of the exact diagnosis of Kai’s disease and it’s current state in his body, we knew that time was not on our side. In these past two weeks, Kai has undergone many surgeries, procedures, tests, and many other things that have been in efforts to give us more time. More time with Kai, but really more time to see if we can do something to fight this disease.
Late last night and through this morning, we’ve learned that nothing here on earth will cure Kai. The disease has caused too much damage. God can heal Kai, and we still do believe in miracles, We actually have been reflecting on how many miracles we’ve witnessed throughout this experience. However we of course do not know if it’s God’s will to have him stay here on earth with us for a longer time, So we are now doing everything we can to ensure Kai is as comfortable and peaceful as possible.
As mentioned earlier, Kai has been resting peacefully. Kai has still been resting and we’ve been able to leave the ICU and onto the oncology floor where it’s more calm and peaceful and where they’ve set it up so family and friends can be comfortable and come and spend time with little Kai.
We’re cherishing this time. We got to spend hours holding him today, reading to him and talking to him. He’s surrounded by family and friends. It’s time well spent. I still hope and wish that Kai would wake up and have an amazing story to tell us and the cancer would be gone – what a powerful testimony this would be. But I also know that his story already is such a powerful testimony of Love, Life, and Faith. We love Kai so so much. So much. And we will continue to love him and be by his side and tell him of all the love and prayers for healing and peace that yall are giving him. Thank you so much for that gift!
